Yup...curvy can kiss my brown-eye. It just looks less cheesy than the Big Hits of yesteryear.

Gawd, it just gets worse. Please, let's throw a couple more levers and bell-cranks and maybe a garage door-opener worm-drive in there somewhere

I'm expecting bikes in the future to have many gizmos on the bar... look what we already have, brakes, shifters, computers, gps systems, lockout front and back...

I'm looking at Fuji's website instead. Got to tell you $1700 is rather tempting.

Don't knock it until you try it.
The bike actually looks good.
Not stiff looking like other bikes.

Yeah, psssht, stiffness is over rated. In saying that, you do own a Trance, so I'm guessing you like flexy bikes to start off with .

Specialized may be missing the boat with the DH rigs but they've got some nice rides. I've got an S-Works Stumpy in my workstand at home right now and it's the best (by a long damn shot) ride I've ever been on. Of course, it had better be if they expect a person to pony up $7700 for it but their aluminum Stumpy's and Epics aren't slouches either. Plus, that's their base Big Hit.

I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the change in navigation that they've come up with for their site. Don't make me guess what category my bike falls into. Just put the model names out there and let me click one time to get to the bike I want not two or three.
