yea was looking at that today. the new ellsworths are complete jokes...
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

Now why don't we have our own Monkey reporter there? C'mon RM, next year we should send someone there with a camera and a laptop.

The new Morewood is sweeeet! ...
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
 
Man i had to wander over to the pic gallery on mtbr and dayum the IH bike that i think misnamed the 9.9 is sick.
Its the all white bike with the matching 7" 66 and looks like a 7 and 7 all mountain ride or whatever the classification du'jour.
Take a peak, its currently on page 2 of complete bikes. :drool:

you mean the 7Poin9 - yeah that bike is the hot stuff...But I caved in and ordered a 05 7Point instead. check out www.pinkbike.com for a video highlight of IH.
