You can always buy a cube instead.

Next time add some tabs/holes to mount the box using zipties or a gear strap

The Zeb was marketed as having a really offset (forwards) arch in order to clear the headtube. As in it can go past the bottom of it. With a reverse arch you have even less space in that regard as you can make the arch only lower to clear the frame.

Or use openstreetmaps, OpenTopo, etc.?

Lovely. How hard is it to add a map to the GPS track?

Found the SPecialized headtube adjuster proto, it was for the diverge:

But that moon bash gives the chance for the chain to jam between it and the chainring... Bikes would probably be quite a bit different, yeah. But it is a bit on us consumers not buying better, but "worse looking" products and burying them.

Well with the current state of technology and marketing, a smartbike is the obvious go-to. If you're talking about battery powered bikes, with the battery part meaning either an e-bike or just a LiveValve/AXS/etc. equipped acoustic bike. Which is all

Well motorbikes are much more integrated when it comes to other components as well, we are somewhat lucky in this regard, we can mix and match to our hearts content. As for double bash rings to guide a chain, you often don't have the space to do it on ... more »

Are there any thoughts of making the bash integrated into the frames more? Have the bash plate wider, on stronger tabs, etc. It would wreak havoc with some suspension designs and it would most likely be frame specific though...

As far as I've been told (and mostly already wrote it), the shock tunnel ad per Robert's photo, seat and top tube joint and I think something around the dropouts? That and use moto foam around the links to prevent stones getting caught in the linkages. ... more »

The Enduro of course. Seattube-toptube joints cracking, shock tunnel yoke to seat tube area cracking, lots of stones getting caught in the chainstay linkage (above the BB ) and around the shock, causing cracks (the Stumpjumper comes with a much better ... more »

Very few bikes are designed in such a way to be OK for 190+ cm riders. I actually rode the current XXL Capra (might have even been an XL actually) and compared to my ride, it's horrible for pedalling up a hill.

I know 1,5 mm washers (well, technically it's not 1,5 mm, as the bolt axis is offset and not radial, so it's probably more like 1 mm in the end) are the solution, but that's my point, why not make a +20 mm adapter and throw in the two washers, that literally

With a much smaller ring wrap angle derailing could be an issue for high pivot bikes due to derailing from the bottom, not the top...
