In your photos, it shows the larger capsule on the bottom of the carrier (which holds the pliers). In the text, it says only the smaller capsule is compatible. Which is correct?

Nice work! It came out very close to what my actual measurements were on my mullet conversion (Guerrilla Gravity MegaTrail, with short lower headset cup and 160mm 29er fork). Biggest difference between the calculator and what I measured is my effective ... more »

Matt G from GG has hinted on RideMonkey that there are subtle tweaks coming to the Trail Pistol geo. Based on the tires in that photo (Dissector/Rekon), that would line up. The wording might be a hint that they're moving to carbon rear ends? They've ... more »

No more Patrol from Transition seems crazy. That'd be like Specialized ending the Stumpjumper line.

You know, I think you're right - new Kinevo. There was a Spec patent posted here a couple months ago showing a revised linkage design specifically to accommodate a motor & internal battery. Plus, Spec's battery division is in Switzerland.

Definitely not Spec - no SWAT box, and using Maxxis tires. Who else besides Forbidden have the funky oval seat tube with the clamp at the front? Are the house brand grips/saddle/stem recognizable?

Good catch. That stack is definitely different.

Before I start, I realize there’s a lot of subjectivity to pedal testing and I’ve not used all the pedals on here. That said, I think this comparison could be a better, critiques below.

1. DMR Vault pedals shouldn’t be #1. Their quality/reliability is not good. Based on this article, in January I...more

I can't see why you'd want to eliminate the hanger. It's designed to be a low-cost part to fail before the derailleur. I think PB and others just like the idea of being able to easily get replacements anywhere, rather than every bike having it's own ... more »

GG has posted some hints over on RideMonkey: slight geo tweaks to both... little bit lower BB, little bit longer CS, and The Smash being changed to 140mm standard (might be 150 with 62.5mm stroke - TBD). My money's on them getting the SRAM UDH also like ... more »

i often wonder the same thing. the shonky frame is $575. by the time you get everything together w/ the fork, the $1400 price makes sense. a transition PBJ is $375 for the frame, but the bike w/ similar build (level brake and Pike DJ fork instead) is $1600, so it's definitely a weird pricing...more

Added reply in a thread I don't like the direction of modern trail building 11/17/2020 11:08 AM

That's more due to it being rare Bay Area singletrack designed for bikes, and consequently getting flooded with noobs who can't ride. It's even worse this year with these same dipshits buying ebikes, and hammering it even more. Not saying it's perfect, ... more »

Awesome review! One of the main points of feedback we have received is in regards to the need for a 12mm wrench for adjustments which as you have mentioned can be not very convenient for trail side tuning. To address this we have made a small 3D printed tool that has both a 12mm...more
