After a nice trip up to Canada we were fortunate enough to stop by the nicest bike park on the planet : Coast Gravity Park.  We bumped into Anton Thelander and since it was our first time seeing the new Canyon Sender in the flesh we thought it was only appropriate that we run a bike check on it.  Anton suggested we also check out his Stitch slopestyle bike as well, so you’ll also see pictures of that below.

The heart of it all.  Although the linkage may appear complicated, it's just a standard rate modifying linkage.

Part two.  Anton’s Canyon Stitched 720 Slopestyle bike.  Developed with input from himself and Thomas Genon, this bike looks really sick.  It has some rather unique features such as a pivot that’s concentric to the BB.  Here is a run through:
