    As expected...

    The new Morewood is sweeeet! It comes with the new Cane Creek shock. The new color of the Demo 8 is always pretty nice, too.

    what do you guys think about the new intense bike. also did you read about bender hiting a 100 ft gap on his new bike. (AT LEAST THAT IS WHAT I GOT FROM THE COMMENTS ON WWW.NSMB.COM)

    "Bender, who was seen riding an Ellsworth - is eyeing up a 100 foot vertical drop. "You heard me" was his reply when we said "Pardon?". No gap though - straight down to a steep-ass tranny. A larger version of the Jah Drop near Kamloops from NWD 1. Photo ~ Cam McRae " -NSMB

    The 303 looks awsome. What is the ransom made by;the frame shape looks like an enduro?

    ransom is made by scott. It comes with there new shock and the frame will be either made out of some light asswieght alumanum or someother kind of composit. Or it will be carbon fiber. it is suppose to be the best mix between a low travel freeride bike (closer to xc) or a all dh rave/trail bike.....you can change the suspension between 4-6 inch just by pushing a botom on the handle bar. Check it out on www.scottusa.com or check the review on
    http://singletrackworld.com/article.php?sid=1715 . This should answer most of your wuestions about this bike

    i've had a few emails about this, so i thought i'd drop a line on the interbike post.

    UTOPIA IS at Interbike. unfortunately because of some BS, we got put on the side....we're kinda near SIX SIX ONE.

    I rode the Morewood Izimu at the dirt demo, as well as the DHR and the new Highline.
    The Highline felt a little twitchy , as can be expected from something that is more of a freeride bike. What surprised me was how the Izimu compared to the DHR. Really smooth, and about 8 or more pounds less! And I could actually pedal the Morewood. :)

    I'm pretty sure I've looked at every picture so far (that I can find) and I must of spotted at least 5 different companies using the same Turner/Kona-ish suspension design.

    i like the feel of that design and honestly it allows you to have full seatpost extension and keeps the shock weight lower and back as opposed to the highline style mounting where its more forward. the only problem with the kona style is with longer travel the upswinging link limits seatpost adjust more than usual since you have to clear the linkage not just the tire...but for 5-7" its great! i miss my stinky...though it needed a dhx or something more than the vanilla
