You decide.


Stylo MTB: Stylo has been reborn. Newly designed for 2008 featuring enhanced stiffness, increased strength, and better shifting. We have forged the redesigned arm from AL-7050-TV, added a stiffer outer chainring and completed the offering with the Team GXP Bottom Bracket. We executed contemporary graphics and an integration of form between the arm and outer ring. This is the workhorse amongst Truvativís offerings. The new Stylo is as versatile as it has always been & it excels from cross-country to extreme all-mountain. Offered in triples, doubles with all-mountain guard and single speed variations with guard.

Both materials and transport costs are rising, therefore component costs are too.

The real question is : Are the new ones $38 cooler looking than last years?

I assume you're looking at Pricepoint for these. IMO the 2007 looks better. Weight is the same, and both are made of 7075 aluminum. I would save the $38. I made the same decision with the single speed Stylo.

Get the 2.2 or 1.1s instead for the sweet looking bash guard.
