Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 8:28 AM

About 5 years ago, when the majority of mountain bikes were still on 26" wheels, I owned a couple of different 29ers - first a SC Tallboy and then a Yeti SB95. Both were really good bikes and probably among the very best 29ers at the time. I also still ... more »

I've had great luck with the higher level SRAM XX1 chains. I have 3 that I use in rotation on 2 different bikes and have a ton of miles on them.

I don't think anyone fully comprehends how loony Gee is. To come back from that sort of thing this fast and qualify? Gee is officially a synonym for the word "savage".

I assure you that the gents testing this concept (Transition, FOX, RockShox, Chris Porter, etc) know exactly what's up. I'd like to think I do as well, having been at this testing game for several years. The back-to-back process typically reveals all.

I honestly can't understand the confusion. The shock stroke is clearly stated as 50mm. The exposed shaft could be 50mm, 70mm, or 100mm, but again, it's clearly stated that the stroke is 50mm and that is the number you would take the percentage of to calculate sag - which is also given online/in the manual.

When other rims survive much longer than one day of riding in the same terrain at the same speeds, that certainly reflects on the quality of Giant's rims.

Nope, 460mm for the large in the low setting.
