Anyone ridden one of these things yet? Besides the lamest name you've ever heard for a bike, what do you think? Long shot - anyone ridden one and can compare it to a RIP9?

Spearfish comes to mind , with the Tomac's MSRP a tick above $4000.00 I suspect you won't see to many of them .

dang that's a lot of semoleans for a single pivot. I had a single pivot for many years, I would never want one again only because the braking action was so far inferior to my friends riding much more capable FSR type bikes, I would lose them at every corner and I had 7+' of travel and they were on 4" travel bikes. Of course it might just be that I am a bad rider but I prefer to blame the bike. Easier on my constitution.

Spearfish is 80mm travel and Diplomat is 120mm travel, though the Diplomat is steeper geo similar to the Spearfish making it more of a long-travel xc bike than an AM bike.

There is a $3000 MSRP Diplomat model too, with actual street price being even lower of course
