I'm a massive hack and didn't lose a chain with my guideless 1X setup on these trails and in the park. Stayed on as my bike tumbled down microclimate. I'm sold on chain security.

The 12X135 axle is a new/old ploy for a new/old standard to force all of us to up/downgrade our current bikes and then be dicks to the sucker 12X150 hold outs. #12X150ISDEAD #GETWITHTHETIMES

Next we'll see them go back to 26" wheels to save weight.

Yeah it's interesting because when I was in line i thought the XL was the L. I'm 6'0" on the dot so usually larges fit the bill. I think of the reach was a bit longer the bike wouldn't feel so tall either. I hate to say it but I wouldn't mind trying it with a 50mm stem. I think then it'd be closer to my Rune's reach.

Mostly though I chalk the bad ride characteristics of the bike to the fork and shock. I want to try it again but with a different set up.

So pinned. Sounded like he knocked the wind out of himself pretty bad.
