It wouldn't be that difficult to make the headline read "race results here," Instead of "Bob Bitchin' wins the race," would it? I mean, that way, the various editors of the news outlets can continue to make the world a better place for Peter. And the rest of us would be clicking the link anyway.

You can fiercely defend your position all you want. The reality is spoiling races is going to pull traffic away from your website. And posting an inflammatory defense of the strategy and telling us we're all babies for wanting to both enjoy the suspense of our favorite sporting event AND still get to...more

This is the prototype, not yet publicly available - very soon though! SO much stiffer. Lots. I found the flex in my 36 CSU was causing the bushes to bind on bigger impacts on the initial part of the travel, effectively rendering them rigid... The MORC feels like actual, real suspension. I could write more, but I'd...more

To store all the coins I need to buy cake after a ride, then transport said cake back home again!

Or maybe it's to store all the essential kit for every ride on the actual bike, rather than on my body... What do you take, and how do you carry it, on every ride?

its 27.5 stock, so he added bigger front wheel with longer AC fork and used angleset to get HA back down do something closer to stock geometry, not to make it even slacker.

It looks like the orientation of the cups is giving it +2 degrees of angle change. He could be running offset shock bushing reducers or a shorter stroke shock to keep the bottom bracket at a similar height to before.

it looks as if that crown has been machined down to allow for more flex

This is actually a good idea.

The Syndicate have been using them. Who else? Look for the small silver bolts on the underside of the lower crown: https://p.vitalmtb.com/photos/users/2/slideshows/12521/photos/34542/s1600_slideshow_photo_1564711171.jpg?1564710869

Sounds like your memory of that Avalanche shock is fairly accurate, Mr Brines. I recently procured a used Nicolai G13 with an Avalanche Woodie (long stroke to bring travel up to 148mm) and revalved DHX, they both work better than any stock shock I've ... more »

You could get a Geometron G1 which is capable of manifesting the same geometry or a longer or shorter rear end, higher or lower bottom bracket and different travel amounts depending on how you set it up. Also, the G1 has the most advanced MTB shock available and it's a coil.

Under Isak Leivson, Pole bikes seemed to not last very long. Saw a guy with one at Beech last year that didn't make it through the day.

I don't like the looks of Poles. Give me a Geomatron.
