    Looks nice - but it also looks like the DHS is still the same...unchanged ?!

    The DHS remained unchanged because they introduced their new DH bike, the 2:1 DHS Mono. They once again offer two DH bikes like in the old days when they had the tube and the mono. Now they have the 2:1 mono, and the regular mono.

    why would you need 2:1 on a 4x bike. it makes no sense, most riders like there bikes locked out almost in the back

    Hmmm, then the 2:1 may be the one to go for if presented with a choice....:drool:

    so are you infering that 4x bikes are better off with 4:1?....

    no im just saying on a big dh bike the lower ratio is better. here it adds weight. on a 4x bike i want that shiat to be light as hell

    Don't forget that the FXR is also a trailbike. But yes, I would agree that a low leverage ratio is not as important for 4X as it is for DH.

    The image is flipped (it reads SEOF, not FOES). Why they would do that? Beats me...
