You know, I kinda like the new stuff. Granted, it's gonna cost a small fortune, but I tired of breaking my "super light weight" XC stuff. Nice to see some innovative stuff.
Finally a 20mm thru axle option on the front hub, but that means going with their discs. I think I'll keep my Profile Racing ones.
I've often thought about incorporating the axle and derailleur hanger. This could open up the doors for Freeride bikes to have horizontal drop-outs like the BMX bikes w/o sacrificing shifting performance. You would however, need to have the disc caliper on some type of adjustable mounting plate. Could be the wave of things to come!
