 Oh look, is that a late-90's Intense M1?? Besides the modern construction and materials, and that sweet shock, doesn't look much different than every other 4-bar, Horst-link bike ever made.

 If they really want to keep the bike that secret why take it to somewhere like Whistler bike park? A place heaving with bike geeks.

 Status?Big Hit? with Ohlins rear shock and Fox 40 float up front, should be really light,especially if a full carbon version gets built.And it does look super fast and super stable.All in all a sik bike, I hope it sees 2015 production, that'll give me time to save my pocket money.

 I wonder if the reason for this redesign is so they can product a carbon rear-end. Its a pity, the triple seat/chain stay gave the demo a look that was quite unique and different to any other bike out there.

 I think its more to do with the new Ohlins/Specialized partnership, than any new radical frame design.Because lets face it this frame isn't that far away from a Status design wise.It may just be a 2015 Status prototype, because the Status has potential as a dh bike in its own right, but with Ohlins shocks it could be a regular podium bike, especially if they make a carbon version rather than the aluminium version shown here. To be honest with Gwin on board this could be the 2014 World Champs winning frame. Just saying.

 I think it's a new Demo. Looking at the front triangel/ frame thing, looks pretty simular to the demo.
Also looks like the upper chainstay has a link halfway in it.

Looks Sick though

 With that HL is probably going to pedal OK too, finally. They have two DH models so there is plenty of room for something Serious and something Fun.
