Surely a full sus can't be e-stay, more e-move? If they count then i'd vote cool simply for the Orange Patriot (although not retro).

I love the Scott Endorphin, but i don't think that skinny tubed e-stays look cool. Me thinks Mmmm.

My Yeti ASX resembles the e-stay design and I love it. Not a great fan of the hardtail e-stays though. Having said that I only ever rode one once (Alpinestars) and I can't even remember if I liked it or not.

Mmmmm........for me.

My future bike has it.

Love the look of e-stays, recently aquired one and can't fault it. They are cool and practical too!

Here are my two.

I like the bolt-on e-stays of these Mantis's because it feels appropriately "pure" in that the front ends are aluminum and the rears were steel. The Flying V is built up now. The XCR rarely gets ridden. I have a Pro-Floater also but I don't think its as nice as the rigids.
