To add to Sspomer's post, one needs to open their mind up a little bit. There will never be "one bike" (or wheel size) that is "better". Better for me? Maybe. Better for where I live? Sure. Better for the type of riding I do? Absolutely.

Take a nod from other "tool oriented" sports such as...more

Forwards is a guaranteed way to snag foliage around here. I run mine just a few degrees back from upright.

Still pretty cool though. I liked getting to see so many riders through the same section. Looked pretty darn steep!

Alright, let me correct: anti-big-tire bias. That's what I intended.

It was a 2.35. Its a tight fit, especially when its muddy. Eventually I took it off as it removed a lot of paint from my seatstay. I'm now running a Purgatory 2.3 at the back, and will probably put a Butcher 2.3 in there for winter. Those Schwalbe tyres are big.

Amen stainless chainring(s). Finally a smart company addresses the horrible durability of an alloy single ring in remotely sloppy conditions.

@willsoffe So if 24 hours after a concussion, you still have a headache, nausea, vomitting, dizziness, and repetitive questioning, you are concussion free solely because it has been 24 hours?

In rugby union they do. Google GRTP. Most doctors will suggest similar in other sports where there is risk of re-concussion.

@willsoffe please explain yourself. Most contact sports have explicit rules disallowing continued participation after a concussion. For the reason that @rwondelly posted.
