    That version looks a little like a Session 10.

    I know, I was making a cooment about the comparison of the old one to the session 10. I really like the look of the refined one though

    looks a lot like a commencal... except the chainstays pull the levers which activate the shock insted of pushing them as happens in the commencal or turner frames

    It's still SP. It just has some rate modifying linkage going on.

    I knew pics would show up soon. They are still working on the final design from what I have been told. You should see one or two of them in the US this season ridden by some Morewood guys.

    Its still a single pivot, just uses a linkage to get a super low leverage ratio. You can't fault a manufacturer who is experimenting with different designs. Can't sit idle.

    10.5x3.5 Cane Creek DB. :drool:

    Morewood's don't come with shocks stock. You pick either a CCDB, Fox, Rocco, or Manitou.

    Cane Creek is working with Morewood and others to test 10.5x3.5 shocks.

    was just on the phone to Propell (UK agent) sorting out some other morewood business and the new frame came up in conversation. Its not a cane creek on there but a boss rear shock they might be going down the foes line as in one frame but 2 shock options a fox and a boss. Eitherway I'm sure ill be riding one in 09. That is unless my sunn radical is too nice to change. Only 2 weeks to find out.

    Actually the Bos hasn't arrived yet, that was a one off Double Barrel that Pat Morewood picked up from the guys over at Cane Creek a little while ago.
