Orange Bikes Stage6 / Far From Home Edition

the chainstays seem like a good length. its nice that at least a couple companies are bucking the short chainstay is the only option trend.

I would like to know what size this bike is, how tall you are, and how you feel about how it corners.

At least some company is doing bikes with longer chainstays and uninterupted seat tubes. My current bike has 459 chainstays and 395 reach 27.5/29 wheels, and there is not too much weight on the front wheel. I think 469 chainstays paired with 64ha and 435 reach for a medium would be pretty ideal.
I think it is silly of you to talk so surely that this will be too much weight on front wheel, when youve never even ridden such a bike. Based on all your comments i doesnt seem like you have a good understanding of how bike weight distribution works.

Durr! But the same load and failure test could be applied and would be a totoally relatable comparison. Foam is failed and downgraded if its compressed badly or split, procore is failed if tube deflated, pinched or casing breaks/cuts. Either is degraded if it fails to protect rim or tire. Both can be weighed comparitively.

You cant compare this to changing a dirtbike tire, its apples to oranges. Realisticly and relative to changing bicycle tires including tubes, all foam inserts and Procore, Cushcore is a most difficult and real pain by all honest accounts.

Procore is the OG tire insert, for the same use, same benifits, that can be tested the exact same way; so i’m not sure why your making excuses for it’s exclusion from the test!

thats gonna depend a bit on rim width. if the procore liner doesnt baloon over the endge i guess thats possible. ive cut single wall tires with procore on 34mm internal rim but never rim damage, and you can ride out on procore no problem.
