A former EWS course starts less than a block from my house. Driving to trails is the exception rather than the rule

Yeah, I love the level of bitching about "no 26." You know what a 27.5 fork feels like? It feels like a 26" fork that's one headset spacer taller.

They are actually not hitting that lip to its intended landing (which would be a good deal further down the trail), but rather transferring to the backside of a second, b-line lip. And we all know what can happen when you use a product for something other than its intended purpose...

That wasn't a case of a certain bike frame being "slow", but rather a case of some good old fashioned racing. I think you will see a very hungry Aaron Gwin at Val di Sole next weekend.

I don't understand how BB Drop (relative to axle) is not the most common measurement. It's not thrown off by fork height and tire selection, and is overall a more telling number. And who measures to the shell?

Why did it take so long? Seems mandatory on a bike like this. Same with Santa Cruz's tapered/142 additions....
