First Look: Diamondback's Affordable Downhiller - the 2015 DB8
Airborne, propain, transition etc. Same cad file, same tubeset, same sweatshop. Good points: Single pivot, triangulated rigid rear end, properly speced. Should work well.

First Look at YTs new Carbon DH Prototype
Pretty much a plastic Scott Voltage. Great parkbike with a wobbly rear end. 4kEuro steep.

Spotted: Prototype Yeti Downhill Bike
Agree. Worthless marketing brap going bad quickly, dating your bike in a year. Not a dh-bike - parkbike.

First Ride: DVO Diamond Fork Prototype
Been riding DVO Emeral black for six months. Though, superb comfort and lots of traction. No going back to Foxrs.

Commencal's Contact System - New Suspension Platform for the Meta Range
Nothing wrong with single pivot. Multipivots are mostly marketing innovation to differentiate brands or adress a a perceived shortcoming/need of a buyer segment. New aluminum is not eco. Recycled alu is. Carbon is not recyclable. Carbon itself is no problem, epoxy resin is a huge issue. What's better than alu and carbon? Quality steel tube bikes. This one looks really nice. Hope it works better than last iteration which had a bit of a crashy feel to it.

If it looks like a dog - it probably is a dog.

@tremotley: The 951 is pretty much the same bike as m9. Different target.

@kabrap: Absolutely. Most, not all, wc tracks are enduro tracks. They used to be way gnarlier. Your analysis is flawed and the spec is not a plow because its intended use is not dh. Look at a turner, m9, 951 etc. Entirely different beasts.
