 certainly eye-catching, and yet another carbon DH attempt - not bad GT, not bad at all
  • 6 2

 Red boxxer and dt wheels would suit perfect Wink But still sick ride!

 That is the worst possible boxxer you can get, worse than the race, and the front brake cable routing is retarded. I hope a bike of this caliber at least comes with a decent fork on it.

 What is so bad about the boxxer?
  • 2 2
 This is the boxxer RC, It has compression and rebound adjustments, but they arent as precise as the race. there is no high/low speed compression or rebound. no bottom out control and its coil and oil like the race. I just hope the final spec of this bike will at least come with a world cup or a 40. this is a serious shred machine and it deserves better

 No, it's the Boxxer Race. What you are describing is the Boxxer Team with it's greater adjustment. There is nothing wrong with the Race forks, a lot of the guys I race with regularly have been using them this season without issue, myself included. Granted they don't have all the bells and whistles like some but for the price they are a good bit of kit. Don't forget, not everyone has a bottomless pit of cash to fund their bike with - and this is the Team spec, the World Cup is the one above it and comes with 40's etc.

 yes, i raced with the boxxer race as well, no doubt, all the boxxers are good, and its my fault i did not know there was a better "version" or better spec'ed fury. sorry for the confusion, although i did spot some boxxer RC's without a rebound adjustment on the new Specialized big hits. not sure why or how it passed inspection. again sorry for the confusion, didnt know there was going to be a world cup spec for this bike

 and to be honest a lot of pro riders and normal riders prefer the teams to the world cups as it is less faff and the coil feels better then air

 Such a sick bike, but rly not loving the shock choice, DHX air's are terrible for dh, hope that doesn't come stock!
  • 2 1
 I am sure it will. But to whoever said the DHX 5.0 is a horrible DH shock, have you ever used one lately, at least 2009 or newer? They are awesome!
  • 3 1
 what what what fox air shox ??????
  • 3 1
 The only thing i dont like is where the BB is.
  • 1 3
 yee agreed they should have made it higher for clearince they lose so much because of the placement although this bike looks so dialed! Big Grin
  • 2 2
 Agreed.

 This thing here, makes me wonder... shouldn't bikes look a bit more: enviornment friendly... something destroys the mellow landscape here : I mean the colours!

 fox dhx 5.0 air I think...
  • 2 0
 im not sure either, maybe they are trying to compete with rockshocks vivid air? possibly a new DH air shock we havent seen yet...
  • 5 0
 haha the dhx air 5.0 isn't new at all
  • 2 0
 thats not what im talking about, im thinking this might be a new air shock, not the DHX 5.0...
  • 1 0
 I agree, it doesnt look like the old dhx5 air shock.

 How are you supposed to access the adjusters on the shock? Most shocks have an adjuster on the side blocked by the frame, even the ones that aren't IN the frame look hard to get too...
  • 2 1
 na you can if you look and on the shock there is a little blue adjuster
  • 2 0
 I think the yellow and carbon look that GT are using with Sick Mick and Beumonts bikes is better than this blue and red scheme

 personally, i think the color scheme on the bike is hideous. i love the bike, i just wish they'd gone a different route with the colors.
