I'm quite interested to know where they're made, especially after the dig a Giant in the response above. Would be a bit hypocritical if Giant had had their hydroforming machine on overdrive to make the new San An.

That 'top tube' has the look of a cast component. Like something you might find in a bridge or something. Cool.

I like it, it does not stand out as much as their classics, but that is more to do with other makers moving towards them than them changing radically.

Its not that bad by itself. (at least comparing it to things they have been doing lately)
The most controversial seems to be the name..
I dont know wether it was necessary to use SA name for this frame.
The biggest problem I have actually with the company is the logo.
Its such bad typography.
For me current Mountain Cycle is joke just based on the logo
