You live in Swiss Alps and are replacing a 2021 Bronson because it looks horrible--could there be a sadder story? Maybe you got the wrong frame size

470g 27" 30 v2 persists, but all those people are buying 29, and external rim widths are no longer published by manufacturer. 30SL will give you 'a jump in average speed by a few miles per hour.' I heard it right here

Are you at all convinced by its offset from bb? Nukeproof has new measures in their geo tables (G,H) which deal with this problem again. Cust service informs me that these dimensions include saddle stack.

Longer stays add weight to the front end w/o any changes to the front end, regardless of rider size

So it's a big secret that closing hsc damping plushens and reduces dynamic ride height? Should I file this with 'alleged shortage in mountain bikes and parts'?: https://www.vitalmtb.com/news/news/11-Races-Crisscrossing-the-Globe-Enduro-World-Series-2022-Schedule,1356

Not sure if you are hell-bent on getting an alloy frame, but the new Scout will run a 150mm rear and 160mm fork.

Looks great but for the rotor adapters and hardware, and inserts seem like overkill for one so easily moved to complain. A debadged Mezzer Pro, black dropper, and black tires would highlight the SLS and spokes/hubs. Cheers

2021 Santa Cruz 5010 V4 CC ..probably a WTF build for some.. Fast and fun for me.

My sorta stock C XT build is 30lbs w/ Rsrv 27s, 36 Luftkappe, XTR der and 45t cassette, OneUp alloy pedals, Reverb, and Vigilante light/fast 2.3". I landed here looking for fit info on DB Air IL...you're giving me ideas--thanks

Awesome roundup! Would love to see a chart like you guys did for the pedal shootout rating things like grip, stiffness, width, arch support, hiking traction, etc.

But Freerider Contact was the best fit for narrow-medium bony feet. Is the relatively baggy Freerider Pro still the best replacement? Does the shank in Trailcross make it as stiff as Pro, presuming one maintains a mid-pedal foot position? So many lumpy toeboxes

As I understand it as far back as yesterday evening, e38 stanchions have the same internal dimensions as new 36. E38 160mm has four spacers, according to setup guide, but same travel 36 has one...I bet you could eek a bit more out of it by pulling spacers, one at a time--extra volume! Sounds like ankle may discourage hucks to flat anyway. Spring rate calculator has you right on at 27% sag, even with 60% rear weight bias. Thanks for details, as I'm keen on dedicated MX setups and still using last gen air suspenders. Happy trails

Thanks. May we slow down and start from the start? You're 190 lbs kitted? Coil is 400 lbs as pictured, stock for a size medium? Psi in fork?--it's E-specific; does that mean it has different spring rates than a regular 38, to account for the extra twenty or so pounds of bike weight? # of volume spacers? Is the CSU different from a regular 38? Normally I wouldn't inquire, but your pace seems to warrant....obviously Marin's chassis supports it.

Dumbability--five stars. McClendon is smooth, but it beggars belief that stock wheels went untouched during review period. Do these really need a wide range cassette with all that pedal assist? Can I get an Alpine Trail with this spec? Will Sean publish his exact suspension setup?--fun review; more dumb pleez
