    Seems like bike companies wait until the end of the summer to release new bikes nowadays.

    Intense will have a new Primer.
    SC will probably have a new and updated Hightower.
    Norco may have a new Range.

    Has anyone heard of anything interesting??? There's some speculation that Evil may update their lineup with Offering-type geometry.

    Or there are more than 3 bike companies and some of them don't really give a **** and release the bikes when they are ready?

    garbage
    garbage but maybe less so than the other two
    GARBAGE
    garbage I hear they are adding 20 more pivots to the linkage, kind of like a knolly 6x6 + a delta also steepening the STA to 45* from 30*
    They are waiting till trash day to put that shit by the curb.

    Some kind of lightweight @hmcleay contraption

    Honestly I hope there is a refocusing on fun 110-120mm 29er bikes. Seems like corporate caught wind of how much fun 29ers can be so they threw everything at big travel big park big bikes. Sometimes just a goddamned solid trailbike is fantastic to ride. No race winners or huck machines, just something you can take out into the woods and enjoy.
