That she's not tall enough to need a longer dropper?

Good to hear the E*thirteens are happy to run on bigger than recommended rims, it's definitely been a concern as I consider going wider than my current Flow EXs. Didn't want to go too wide for e*thirteen, or too narrow for WT tires(& maxxis says you shouldn't run those any smaller than 31IW, or rather, that you should run their regular tires instead.) Sounds like 35IW might be exactly where I want to be.

It has an integrated seat post binder, can't be a lot of DH bikes it could be.

So are you saying to grease pressfit BBs on carbon frames? Because I've heard both, but "don't grease it" more often than "grease it."

That... seems improbable for a bike with a 6.8 pound frame & no carbon components. Transition claims 28.8 for a complete, & edit: it's build kit 2, which is very comparable to this build. https://www.transitionbikes.com/Bikes_PatrolCarbon.cfm?Token={ts_2016-12-13_09:34:39}-3464984034b08c41-B41AC06C-04D5-FD98-464881C94A02642C

Other than flat pedals, I don't think there's a thing I would change.

Pretty awesome guide for getting a neutral cockpit, which is where everyone should start. Usually people will deviate somewhat(I prefer a little bit of forward roll, & flatter levers are pretty popular right now) but starting from a neutral point is best.

yea can you believe they didn't get every flat pedal made from every manufacturer? it's almost like they tried to get a sensible subset of the market to let us know their thoughts and comparisons. this clearly shows they don't care about american manufacturing.

Yea, no worries, like I said, I had no idea they'd discontinued them. Hopefully they're working on a new pedal that can be included in the test at some future date.

Huh. Weird, they were there a few months ago when I had to confirm that they sold two different revisions(newer had smaller pins.)

Guess I need to stock up on parts so I can keep my two pairs running as long as possible. Kinda not stoked to go back to pedals without spin control, & that I can't freshen up for $10 when they get beat up.

A little disapointed the E*Thirteens didn't make the cut for the test. They're comparable in platform size with the biggest here, & I bet they'd compare well on some of the measurements you chose, especially with the 7mm pins. I certainly haven't even considered running those, more than enough grip with the 3mm & blank pins in the middle.

None of these pedals offer blank pins, composite wear plates, or spin control, either. I get it though: despite good reviews & lots of anticipation during testing, the MTB worlds seems to have forgotten the pedals exist.

How much wider are the knobs than the casing on your mounted one (mostly asking if it's a significant difference, rather than caring about an exact number.)

Anybody have an idea how these compare, real world actual size, to the e*thirteen 2.35"s, or the maxxis WTs? Not that I'd opt for these tires living in a place where loose over hard is our default conditions, but I'm curious how they compare size-wise.
