There will be a full bike check on the German site (Google translate?).
Some other neat bikes have been shown at that event too:

@troy : any chance that you are selling these head badges separately? Such a cool logo (I love owls)!

Chatted with a guy who built this prototype. Some strange things going on here but he clearly was trying things out. Was asking a lot of questions on what I would look for in a bike.

TT and DT are Reynold 831, rest is CNCd Alu7075. Swingarm is a single piece solid 7075alloy part

not a new bike, but Push's new shock is live

Nice that you can order two different tunes direct - https://www.pushindustries.com/products/sveight. Could save $ on retunes of brand new aftermarket shocks.

given that the tunes are differentiated by spring weight, I would wager it is related to the fact that there is no HSR adjustment, rather than a bike/suspension specific tune.
Yup. Still better than just one aftermarket tune though if it works for your frame. It will be interesting to see if they add more stock tune variations over time - ie a set for highly progressive bikes. One nice thing about Ohlins is they only charge $100 for a retune when you order a shock.

Amazing how they still look so contemporary. Loved it when Wyn and Brook were riding for them.

ahhh, reminiscing about my old 2" stroke, 7" travel RM-7 (ie, ~50mm for 180mm).

though the poor shock on the rm-6 was asked to eke 6" out of 1.5" stroke...

I still have one of these in the back of the shed somewhere. 06 Slayer
Was not totally terrible, and much better after Push got done with it.
FWIW - My son rode it pretty hard at the local lift hill for a few years and it is still in one piece.

I have worked with one of those guys (Will) a few times over the years.

Like the steel with sweet gusseting and compact rear end, but "enduro light" made me throw up in my mouth a bit.

Thanks man! There are 2 ways to do this mod. You can remove the paralerogram and join clutch part and the "hanger" with a pivot pin (it can rotate on that pin, maybe chain tension keeps it in line, haven't tried this method)

Or you can chop everything off except for the clutch part, then make a new plate/hanger attached to the clutch cover bolts (that's what i've done with mine)

Awesome work! Thanks for sharing :thumb:
No problem mate!
With the 2nd solution you have to remember 1 thing
1701722741975.png


Putting a plate between the der. body and the clutch cover (like in the picture above) adds dead space between the clutch/bearing and the cover (normally, the cover keeps the bearing from sliding off). This can result in clutch sliding off the cage pivot (towards the clutch cover). To remedy this, you have to put some nylon washers on the clutch bearing, to remove this dead space.
