Remember the Pitch? That's exactly my favourite take on a bike: all performance, no nonsense, it was a better bike than the more expensive Enduro, because it had simple RockShox suspension, not overkill "dedicated" items made by Fox and that actually only suit the garbage can. How do I know? I have a '08 Enduro with that awful fork and two of my friends have Pitches. Guess what rides better! OT now but I have no idea why they went off the '05-07 Enduro chassis design for the 'Enduro SL' in '08-'09
...X-Fusion made those dreadful 'futureshock' dual crown forks, enough said. The old bike just KILLED the new one for that couple of years, simple fox shock and fork, slack angles, low BB... Lucky the 2010 onwards Enduro chassis is BRILLIANT.
....Because if they stayed with the same design they wouldn't be able to say 'This swanky new bike is the best design ever and so much better then last years design' every year.
Orange don't tend to change a winning design too much every year for the sake of it but that leads to many spouting bollox about them. Can't win I guess.
