Julien Absalon won the World Championships on a full suspension but at the last race he have done this year he’s riding hardtail again. But a new one.
This is how the frame looked before, BMC teamelite:
And here is a couple of pictures of him and his new frame:
Flat chainstay instead of going up at the back, a bigger carbon seattube at the bottom and just one top tube that gets bigger instead of being split in the connection with the seattube. That’s the changes I can see. There may be something special under the boots covering a bit of the seatstay and seattube too, anyone know?
