Why don't they have any Large 29ers in stock? Are they all discontinued?

We're working on a lot of new bikes at the moment. We just released all-new Guardian and Goblin 29ers.

Are you guys planning to release a new Pathogen? It's been the same for years.

We are currently working on new enduro and trail bikes, as well as a carbon hardtail.

We still have Pathogen frames left, mostly size small (I believe there are two or three mediums left too). We have sampled a slopestyle frame for Tommy Zula to test, but we're just in the beginning of that phase. He just built it up Wednesday.

I still have my 2015 Guardian. It gets some love on XC days, but I think my riding style has moved in a different enough direction that I'll probably sell it soon. I think the changes I'd have to make to get a more livelier ride on the downhill portions of ride would rival the cost of the bike, but it was a fun bike to start on.

has anyone had issues with the Airborne Pathogen's bearings in the linkage? Specifically the little dog bone, the bolts keep coming loose and bearings blow twice a year on mine. I met another guy with the same frame and he said that he's also having the same problem.

I took the time to really look for the cause of this, and the frame seems to be misaligned where the dog bone link meets the rocker link, so the bearings and bolts recieve lateral forces due to the binding produced that they were not meant to take, resulting in the bolts coming loose and the bearigns blowing up fast. I came to the conclusion that i'm just getting a new frame instead of keeping the struggle with this one, it rides awesome and feels super solid overall, but i can't be dealing with this all the time.
