I’ve not thought about this from the perspective of lengthening the CS but I’ve ridden with this set up and it does help high speed stability and when pushing against the pedals over steep gnar you don’t overstretch ankles on big hits. Just a trade off ... more »

Interesting this thread came back to life....could it be because the bikes have continued to get even longer? I thought the Vorsprung video was good and backed up my impression that more average height riders look better balanced on bikes with the right ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/15/2017 5:34 AM

I’ve gone from 27.5 to 29 and I run an AM (mega 290) and HT (honzo). I also have a 27.5 DH rig. I’m 6,2” and so my bikes are pretty big (c1250 WB on the AM and almost 1300 on DH) with the HT a bit shorter due to frame size and adjustable CS length. I’m ... more »

The new Pole Machine has been shown on several mtb websites, but when will we see it covered here and more importantly reviewed so we can understand if there is magic in the suspension design? https://youtu.be/ZNAxkr6y_TY

I think the chain stay balance issue is just a part of the bigger need to scale bikes proportionately..... There seem to be 2 key areas (1) proportionate chainstays and (2) stack to reach ratio. As far as I know there isn't a manufacturer who broadly ... more »

Hi Joe
Just wondering how much you weigh. I'm 100kgs, do you think these could handle a bigger guy. I doubt I do as big a jumps as you and I use a DH rig for my DH.
Cheers
