Well, AU throws a wrench in anything I know. I'd be checking out the Giant Reign. Can probably talk them down to $3000 for the base model. How much do the Canyon Strive and Whyte G160 run?

^ SC and Yeti maybe realizes that no one's trying to pedal *while* taking a huge hit that uses up 60+% of their travel. Isn't recommended sag *also* dependent on shock rate curves? - Santa Cruz's leverage is highest at their recommended sag, for max ... more »

Correct me if I'm wrong, but did CB just patent something that makes their dual link mimic a single pivot in terms of pedaling efficiency? That relation between chainline and center of curvature looks exactly like having a single pivot located at the ... more »

Yeti SB95 and Evil Following for 2 different reasons. The Yeti SB95 was the purchase that broke my 1-bike quiver days. It made me wonder which bike suit me best, and I started becoming a bike whore from then on. It was a very good bike. Just too good, ... more »

Some form of internet, for everything from manuals, to music.

Some of you guys probably would enjoy playing around with an EBB.

What's with the controversial title, now that you've corrected the misunderstandings, misled by your original post? "Short chainstays suck" = Short chainstays aren't always better. Longer is better for taller riders, racers, and bikes with longer fronts? ... more »

I think it boils down to people riding what they're used to. If it's different, there will be "growing pains" in getting used to it. Trying to use the bike in a way similar to their last, and seeing it struggle (wheelies, manuals, etc.), is seen as a ... more »

Nice, a major redesign of the rear hub! Love outside-the-box thinking. Wonder if Yeti will run this standard somewhat exclusively on their bikes... well, if Cannondale can do it...

Gimbal makes the PoV style much more watchable. I'm tempted to try one out myself, but it seems like one would need to learn how to fix them, to save them after all the damage they take. :D

Looks like it could be a basic Tuned Mass Damper.

6c. The SB 29ers only have 1 internal port on the right side (no FD), and generally a shorter head tube.

What dial? You mean that giant knurled black ring at the top that's as big as the air can's diameter itself?

There's been news on floating around for a while. The new race (weight weenie) class step down cast 32. Boost, without the wider stance, and crazy light. I think around ~1400g. Performance Elite has a slick black ano stanchion finish, in between the ... more »

Regarding the VP cassette patent, it's interesting, but not sure how that supposed to be any more affordable than a GX cassette, when everything's still pinned, but just less hollowed out. Does leaving the cogs excessively long contribute to anything? ... more »

Looks 27.5 to me, due to the lack of BB drop.
