I’m not opening this can of worms but for small-medium size riders the sizes are fine. It’s tall riders that benefit most from increased reach figures - and granted I never look at the larger sizes so maybe I should start to when critiquing bikes I know little about on the internet.
But head angles and offsets - that’s straight up gimmickry. It feels novel, not better. Maybe, maybe the way some riders ride and particularly the terrain some riders ride will lend to the super stable slack, high trail designs but if anyone in the U.K. or anywhere with tight and twisty trails with real corners rather than motorways and giant banked turns thinks that’s a good way to go about things then I wanna ride your trails!
If they did all you’re asking it’d just be another Transition, trying so hard it hurts. Take a moment and consider there might be riders out there who think the bikes already rock - I know I did before transition ruined there bikes!

Kinda nice to see one of the few brands that seem interested in refining their designs rather than just add 25.4mm to the reach and make the head angle 63°

I wonder if the good folks over at Transition Bicycle Company have ever laid eyes on Santa Cruz’s color schemes?

Why does it drive you crazy? If someone likes a smaller bike for a smaller rider, how does it affect you? More options, better for everyone.

A 27.5 and 29 aren't the same bike though. Why can't I get a M 29? I understand what you're saying, just don't agree

I really don’t think it’s possible to over state how awesome the inside line is. Another fantastic listen, another huge bite of insight. Just truly love listening to this stuff. Would also love to hear from Neko!

Cool, Im just about to put one together. Not sure whether to go 26 or 27.5...think your awesome build may have me convinced. Like the pivotal saddle too.

Awesome once again. Very interesting insights on the EWS. The extra practice thing happens in DH too but doesn’t really seem to correlate that much with the results on the race weekend as far as the riders concerned that I’ve noticed go anyways.
Besides that Mark Weir is an inspiration, and no not just because he climbed a zillion miles in a day or whatever. Ahhh man and he blasts music too. Shit the guys just a way better version of me.

I've always run mine nearly straight down.

You are right, those are the standard specs. Rob probably got excited when he read the brochure and thought his was longer than what it really is... :-D

Ahh man absolutely fantastic way to spend an evening listening to this. Great job Spomer. When everything in the media these days is all about the quick fix, 2min edits and insta bangers it’s bloody brilliant to sit back, chill and listen to this stuff. The longer the better. And that great anti-corporate Vital vibe. Keep it coming.

Sam Hill is a great guy to watch and I always pay close attention to his bike checks etc to check out his personal tweaks. He is one of few riders at the top of the sport who really seems to understand (whether he consciously thinks about it or not) ... more »
