    Well i dont know about the Commencal but heres the new Spesh bikes

    Look like censored if you ask me, although im sure they ride extremely well.

    You should DEFINATELY check out the new Trek 08 range. The 9.5, 9.0 and 9 all look absolutely beautiful and are supposedly meant to handle even better than the 07 range which are already fantastic bikes The EX8 is gonna come in Camo Green which looks pretty rough and thats why i just bought myself an 07 Fuel EX 8 at a discounted price :D

    Well the EX 8 is going up to £1700 so not sure how much the 9. 9.0 and 9.5 will be.

    Has anyone got any pics of the 08 Trek 6500.

    I've ordered one based on spec but can't find a pic anywhere.
  • dylancrispdylancrisp Posts: 116
    yeah has anybody got any pictures or specs for the lower class bikes like the trek 6000 or trek 6500 :P
    thanks

    I can already predict the raving reviews the new specialized's are gonna get.. but yep, they're ugly....
    I'd like to see if they're changed the epic's design at all...

    The 08 Trek fuel looks absolutely gorgeous though!

  • This months MBUK has Marzocchi, GT, DT Swiss and Comencal 08 ranges in!
  • i seen the mag and love the look of the commencal meta 5.5.2. If i cant get an 07 one cheap im gonna treat myself to the 08 one.

    Christ.. the old spesh are getting as adept as GT at making hideous bikes!

    Some of the SBCs we've had in already look alright. The Hardrocks are hideous, but we've had a few SJ FSRs, and they don't look too bad.

    Poking through the catalogue, no-one in their right mind is going to be buying an SX, a Langster London or a Demo this year.
  • Hi, has anyone seen anything from Scott as yet for 2008 models? I'm interested in a Spark, but don't know what will be on the 2008 model!

    I'd love a preview of what's coming!

    Chears.

    God, how hidious are the new 2008 bikes! They must have spent some serious R&D time trying to work out how bad to make them look :cry:
  • BikerDanBikerDan Posts: 188
    Theres also the Commencal Furious freeride rig. dont like the mint green frame though. Spec seems excellent!!

  • Thats it job done - i couldnt resist 25% off the 07 commencal meta 5.5.2 and pick it up in the morning. I reckon its a great bike for 1300 sheets but think im still going to want an 08 one when they fly past me. Hope ive made the right decision.
  • Well i bought an 07 commencal in the end - 5.5.2 for £1300. I love it but not looking forward to seeing the 08 model as it looks great in the pics. i hope i don regret getting the 07 one.

    I've never been a spesh fan... but I have to agree, the paint jobs on the new season stock are quite revolting... lord alone knows who comes up with them? (Must be the same monkeys who designed the Playstation3?)(they use crayons and napkins you know)

    I think they look a bit over designed... what happened to simple, clean lines, all those bendy wonky spliney lines are all very clever and that but at some point I swear there gonna end up making a bike that looks like Prince's Guitar!
    get on your bikes and ride!

    spoke to someone at orange factory last week there releasing a limited edition prestige for 2008 but they are not changing the five which puzzled me coz its a very good bike for 2007 but surely will be left behind by other firms new 2008 bikes particularly weight wise
