I'm not sure how you could say that its been "one trick rampage wins". You clearly did not pay attention to the contest the past 2 years. Re-watch Kurt Sorge from 2 years ago, he barely did any tricks. He threw a superman and a backflip down the bottom section, thats it. And Strait last year? His no hander off...more

Because the riders don't have enough time to do it. It takes an insane amount of effort to build a line. Chill out, 3 features total on a massive face (it's big, trust me), is nothing. Also the riders will be building bigger/crazier features than that step-down... it's relatively average compared to what was...more

I'm running the 30t in an XO1 system with an MRP skid on my LunchBox...not a single dropped chain yet. Also running the 30t with a bashgaurd and a clutch RD on my fatbike...not a single dropped chain there either. the narrow/wide with a clutch style RD is the way to go to eliminate dropped chains without an actual chain guide, IMO.

Having tested/demoed countless 29ers over the past few years, I call BS, especially on agility.

@Nickr - no shame really as the Covert29 will be much the same bike ;-)

But minnar rode better than gee on the day. So it shouldn't have been geeman on the winners spot. That's racing. The winner wins.

"Super short" stays? pffft.... I ran into a Giant rep at the trailhead the other day...he had the Trance X 29er and was all smiles. I rode up annd started chatting him up...I remarked about the crazy 'perceived' seat tube angle and how it allowed Giant to tuck the rear wheel closer to the BB then he began on the stays - it's flickable! it's nimble! it's easier to pop the front end up! ... like 17.8" has never been achieved. That's when I turned my Lenz Lunchbox to the side and said "that's a 17.3 stay and he figured out how to do this years ago. welcome to the party!" He didn't like that comment too well and on he went for his ride. I yelled out "hey, email me a ride report on that bad boy!" I haven't heard from him yet........I'm sure it was a fun ride.

Always nice to see more big-wheeled content here on Vital--much appreciated.

But (said in the most sincere and direct way possible) please catch up. 5" 29" bikes have been readily available for over 7 (yes, seven) years now.

'Short' stays are...more
