i like the new paint job it's very unique, but the old frame seems to be more beefier for some reason

I'd ride one. Screw the paint job, my bikes are usually dirty anyway.

I agree- it looks like a pimp would ride one. )
Of course, if they make the rest of pimp accessories, it'd be sweet. I could see a gold helmet shaped like a wide brim hat with a purple or pink feather sticking out of it. A long gold trench coat that will have a jersey like material so that it will wick away the persperation and will have an integrated water blatter. Not to mention all the useful storage pockets for tubes, switch blades, guns and the like.

I would totally hit it, without a doubt. It looks like most of my clothes, well only the 8's and the 7II, the others I could do without, and the frame does look kinda funny.

Don't like it.

Of all the new Specialized, the only one I like is the Berrecloth signature SX Trail frame!
