    recently iron horse released the new 2005 bikes. The last few years the sgs has been good and pretty well priced with good parts. The sunday looks good ( but really expensive.) but I am worried the yakuza seires is going to be bad compared to the sgs freeride. it seems like last year the sgs was in the mid range of bikes, but now the 7 point seiresis high and the yakuza is low, no middle for kids with crappy jobs like me who want good bikes. Im also worried about them using all those new forks and rear shox from manitou (a gamble?)

    I would have liked to see them put a Fox DHX rear suspension on instead of the Vinilla.

    NO!...the reason why is to keep the cost down. You want a high end dh bike go look at the demo. Bighit are for people like me. Like to ride but pay as little as possible.

    Yakuza should be fine. Weight is decent, price is decent and don't they all come with a floating brake. So technically there should be no brake jack. I imagine they will be a good buy at under 2000$ But still I agree.I would have loved to haveseen one horst based mid range model

    You guys are forgetting something. IH SGS's were always MSRPed high, but Superho sells them REALLY cheap.......I highly doubt that they will sell for MSRP.

    This is very true. I've been seeing Ironhorse bikes heavily discounted wherever I look.
