The rear centre is still too short. Especially on large+ sizes. It was even worse on the old bike with the 420mm rear centre. That's why these guys couldn't find a spring rate balance. You either have to have the bike over sprung so it doesn't work on steep tech to be stable on jumps or live with it choppering out up jump faces (which is pure sketch) and flat turns. Specialized needs to screw the short rear centre marketing BS and just give the bike proper weight distribution. They have 120mm bikes with 20mm longer rear centres....

For sure you can expect a little more carnage and raggedness at worlds, today it just bit a few more than usual out of the contenders. I was right there with you hoping Neko would hold on to it. Personally I think the #1 plate means a lot more than the rainbow jersey. Champions...more

I actually didn't enjoy it. Niño's crash in the XC was horrible, Hill nearly broke his neck and the replays of Josh putting his already destroyed foot into the floor for the second time made me feel sick.

That was my point. For a given size they're either too short in reach or the seat tubes are too long. They should just copy Kona. They have sizing perfect.

Looks like they're still using ridiculously long seat tubes.

FYI: 27.5 wheels fit in the old Reign (just in case you don't want to buy a new frame). And yes that does mean with proper width tires. The same tires as in the photo of this prototype actually.
