But there are roots and rocks which are worse if anything than stairs...

There you have it then, knee over toes makes no sense. Why use it to describe a rider position then if it does nothing but confuse things? But this is not the point of this topic.

To me it sounds you're in perfect XC country. Given what (Alps, 150/150 loooooong slack AM sled) and how (enjoying myself on technical stuff regardless if I'm going up or down, but still prefer the down), in your position (or if I had any XC terrain) ... more »

My point is that this is not caused by the knee going over the toes. It's caused by an issue somewhere else and due to the position of the rider on the bike it just comes out that the knee goes over the toes. By the logic of knee over toes, a recumbent ... more »

Where the hell does this myth of knees over toes come from and how the hell is it still active??? What about if you were riding a reverse recumbent bike? The knee would in front of the toes there! Look at the system. If you rotate the rider (the complete ... more »

The three bikes that I have ridden since 2008 (the Meta was sold to my friend and he had it over for a service when I still had my Giant and was selling it). https://imgur.com/K491zpo The cockpit lengths barely changed (logical), the seat to front wheel

Or maybe the SB115 or the like. My ultra progressive 150/150 29er trail bike works amazingly on techy climbs, so I see no reason for it to not work on flatter ground. As in better than older bikes in the same class. Better than an XC bike? Nope. Better ... more »

If the shoes will be anything like their other products I suppose it's best to steer clear of them?

Plus to me the arch looks way more angular than what FOX has in the new lineup.

Given what's happening in Slovenia currently, a second wave in July looks to be very likely.

More travel, longer uppers for more bushing overlap, more stiffer. With the crown having less offset, you have to do the remainder of the offset in the dropouts. Which means you also get enough space for the uppers to slide past the axle if need be.

The one in the lineup might be worn/cut with Jordi's fresh out of the mold? The tread looks very similar though.

I've been thinking... The new Meta lineup was released by Commencal and it features Ohlins shocks. That means that the Specialized exclusivity deal has run out and Ohlins is free to play for everybody. Does that mean we will maybe see them represented ... more »
