Salsa Full-Suspension MTB Updates?

Allow me to say this right off the bat: I have no inside line.  No insider information.  No amount of prying has made me privy to any info.  I’m not a bike shop employee, I’m not provided with any information that’s not available to the rest of the world.

That said, I’m a fervent observer of all things Salsa.  So I’ve noticed things like this:

1.  Salsa is having a sale on existing full-suspension bikes.

2.  Carytown Bicycle Company is probably violating a non-disclosure agreement by posting that Salsa is releasing new FS bikes.

3.  Salsa has a blank page reserved on their website about split-pivot full suspension bikes.

4.  Some schmoe on MTBR is also promising updates to Salsa’s FS bikes.

I’m perhaps not the brightest person in the world, but I think I see a pattern here.  What is a Split Pivot you ask?  Wikipedia to the rescue.

Frankly, I love my Superfish, and don’t foresee any change in mountain bikes in my future. She’s perrrrrrrrfect.  But I’ll be interested to see what Salsa comes out with.

    Sounds like the “Split Pivot” is similar to Treks ABP (Active Braking Pivot)
