yeah they do but it is really expensive. Anything above 9sp we look at over $1200, which is too much for me to shelve out for a bike I leave outside all day. I personally don't see the advantage of heavy entry level suspension forks so the only thing that draws me to new bikes are disc brakes and possibly lighter aluminum frames. I was hoping that the newer 7sp rear wheel would be compatible with 8/9/10 cassettes. But those stupid bolt on skewers on the 7sp probably rules it out. So I will probably buy the 8sp bike.
