I thought Rennie used to destroy shocks on the V10.3 with the 2.75" . Maybe with the improved shock rate and better damped shocks they don't have this issue.

I kept eating shit when I ran my bike with a 550 and relatively normal damping settings. I stopped eating shit when I ran my shock either a) undersprung and over-damped, or b) mega-sprung with regular damping. Kiran, this is literally exactly the same conversation I have with bike company engineers every single year. I like-a the spring rate. I probably just suck at riding and you should accept my ill-advised bandaid solutions for what they are.

Hey Kiran don't be mean. The bike you felt was massively under sprung with a 500 pound spring. Once I got a real spring on there I opened up the damping A LOT and it didn't feel so turd-y.

There is no mention of a longer chainstay for XL sizes in any of the other V10.6 coverage, and none of the geo charts show a longer chainstay in any of the sizes.

Also it comes with a shorter shock now, a 2.75". I was already running a 600 pound spring on my 2014 V10, and the equivalent spring rate for the new shorter shock is 650. Yikes.

It's a good thing those guys were wearing all that spandex. The wind resistance must have been unreal at those speeds.

You know your sport sucks when someone like palmer 'revolutionizes' the world by just showing up to an event in actual clothes.

I was kind of thinking the same thing. Ain't no low speed compression like a stiffer spring rate. If your compression is maxed and you're still diving and blowing through travel, it's time to spring up. Turman, you're a fast rider, what you doing riding entry level sag like that? Urbody knows fast guys run less sag. You're one of the fast guys.

I'm pretty sure BB height is in the "personal preference" category, not the "good or bad" category. If you never ever want to clip pedals, you go 14. If you want the best cornering ever ever, you go sub 13.5" and live on the edge. Most bikes live somewhere in the middle of those two numbers, which is what we call a compromise.

My handy dandy protractor says 63.5 is likely the case.
