The pattern is available, but the GRP40 rubber isn't out yet. Your only choice at the moment is 65/55 in 27.5, which is a bit hard even for a mud tire on the WC.

it seems the yt is much closer to his last bike than his last bike was to the bike before that. change can be difficult but i don't think it's going to be as drastic as before.

ditto. i'm just under 6' and still use a 3" GD. at that drop my thighs don't go past parallel with the ground while seated and the crank at 12 o'clock (so i can still actually pedal) and i have plenty of room for maneuverability. i want my seat out of the way but not feel like it's been removed.

So i might be odd man out, but who's dropping their posts 150-170mm? Honest question, I'm 5' 8" so maybe it a tall person thing? I don't drop my post more than 4" ever and have been trying to wrap my head around the need for such big...more

rattlers all over these parts. in 25 yrs of riding i've seen maybe 3 and heard maybe 3 more. they're out there but never seem to be the terror i read about year after year.

Didn't Aaron explain that the modified link and the air shock on the Demo was to make it more progressive?

i'm not sure 'elite' and 'trade' are interchangeable. SC wasn't given trade team status but they were still in the elite category. someone with more knowledge can probably answer for sure.

pretty sure mtb contracts are calendar years. gwin wouldn't be seen riding his new bike or wearing his new gear until today at the earliest.
