what do you guys reckon about the new frame/suspension design on the 09 model? seems pretty different to the previous ones. wonder what the performance effect would be?

New year, new design..... to get the novices excited. Stick with the tried and true designs. For instance: I have a horst link designed bike. This design has been around for yonks. But it works great! Check the reviews a MTBRdotcom for advice

So does the bike posted.

That design got the pros excited too. It shaved a lot of weight from the 08 Epic. Sauser pretty much demanded to ride the bike for the World Champs (which he won), even though Specialized weren't sure it was ready to be unveiled.
