I'll start looks like we have quite a few new/prototype bikes on display at the first EWS...

Pivot Firebird, Devinici, We Are One, Norco

Devinci and Norco swapped designs. That new Range is nearly a high pivot Wilson and the Devinci goes to a rocker link.

I just hope the new ones are not going to be a lot heavier than old ones

current firebird is 13.5kg and bikes got quite heavier since it released

Agreed, loved the weight of my old Firebird. It got stolen and I've been on a SB150 ever since and it weighs 36.5lbs as a medium in it's enduro setup

New range has all the carbon bits and still weighs 36 lbs

Shore is 38lbs in all aluminium spec which is funny

Don't know if any one cares, but it's rumored the new Santa Cruz chameleon is going to be a mullet like the Bronson.

Also their was a patent from Shimano awhile ago that sounded like it unlocked your suspension when your dropper was down and locked out your suspension when it was up. It sounds interesting
