There's certainly a push towards more and more gear range, and it's getting a little out of hand. SRAM's GX line comes in a 2X version with their 10-42T cassette, and Shimano's XT/XTR in a 3X version(god forbid) with the 11-40T cassette. Is that much range really needed? I don't ... more »

There are those that say Shimano blew it when they came out with a cassette offering less gear range than SRAM's widely praised 10-42 tooth cassette. At the same time, we'd wager a bet that among those people are people that still prefer...more

A steep seat tube angle will keep your weight forward while climbing, helping to negate a perceived "problem" with short stays. The 76-degree angle is only the effective angle, however, so if you're a tall guy with the seat cranked way up you may be over the rear axle a bit. I'm guessing for the average proportion male they've found a nice balance between effective and actual, traction and wheelie-ing over backwards.

In my experience wheelbase, reach, and headtube angle have more of an impact on high speed stability than chainstay length.

We'll reach out to the boys at Canfield and have them jump in here for a response.

I'm curious. If you could do one thing on a bike really, really well, what would it be? Would you manual rollers like Wyn Masters or Troy Brosnan? A video posted by Troy Brosnan (@troybrosnan) on Apr 24, 2015 at 2:48am PDT Would you drift like Sam Hill or Chris Kovarik?
