    same colour scheme that was used on the crux frame only last year.
    i swear they just cycle through paint jobs between different disciplines, so it looks new.

    Lets hope so! ohlins makes great shocks but atm with that matt yellow it looks cheap. Meanwhile the frameset looks sik.

    Where'd you get this picture from? I'm sure that ohlins shock works really well but not a fan of the colour at all....

    Yeah hopefully they won't stray from that gold reservoir look they've carried for ever, while I run a cane creek now I'd still fork out for an ohlins just from my experience with their mx suspension being completely freakishly amazing

    Yes, there is another thread with all the colour schemes coming so lets keep it to one thread. So many 2014 specialised threads already.

    Good colours the ohlins shock looks poor.
    It will perform good but IMO would look much better if they did a ano gold (bos stoy quality) with black or ti spring. Make it look expensive not cheap ass k-Mart. They defiantly need a revamp of the aesthetics without losing their gold/yellow brand colour.
