My lord how I would love a cockpit this tidy.

Would be cool, maybe some day we will have telepathic shifting ,braking and dropper controls.

No magic here!

fuse frame only in raw i would buy BUT nit for that price! i can get a nice steel frame for that! frameset not available in europe. so no speci for me. the enduro and stumpy evo i had a few years back rode great and nice that they moved away from their proprietary bs.

Rumour has it there's gonna be an Alu version of the Middlechild coming out with sliding dropouts, dope geo that should be quite a bit cheaper than that Specialized. Don't think a raw version is a crazy idea either!

i was interested in the middle child but with shipping to germany incl taxes it was too expensive for the simple 4130 frame for me. otherwise a great frame the rsd.

Yeah, the shipping costs to Europe are brutal and I don't think they have a distributor yet.

It does look very clean! I’m guessing it’d need a knock block style system to stop the bars spinning and severing the hose to the rear brake?

Right, that one. I forgot about it. Somebody posted a really nice one a while back. Looks more aggro than the Fuse.
Fuse looks more classy, I would say though.

Agreed, alu or not they both belong here.

I ride Scott Scale Plus and i can't say that is not comfortable maybe because is a plus size dough. I just put a brand new Pike on it and it feels like a half a suspension now. I am addicted to it Moon .

That's 4 pretty nice hardtails! Sounds like the BTR won the review.

Pending courier, I'm hoping to be building my BTR tomorrow. All the excites.

Yeah, seems that BTR came out on top.
