I’m using some M15x1 crank bolts in this one. They work fine but I will most likely get some use specific ones going forward. That’s one area that is due to change so for now I’m using the closest I can get off the shelf.

Thanks! Travel is 140 rear and I’ve designed this one for a 150mm 29er fork. Geometry on this (because it’s mine) is slack and short….62° HA, 430mm reach, 430mm chainstay. They’ll be custom front triangle geometry once I have everything dialled.

Just realised I need to build a saddle hook bike stand at my local spot.

Previously he’s been quite vocal about how much he likes the mullet setup...maybe he just forgot with all the excitement?

Very cool products here. Definitely looking at the single speed kit to replace a dying Rohloff DH. Had been considering the SB1 stuff but maaaan that’s expensive stuff to huck bike parks with. Also think the steerer clamp would make life so easy when there’s 4 bikes in the van.

I tried this flat lever thing a couple of years ago when I first saw the enduroists doing it and...got arm pump before I’d got to the end of the drive. I’d never experienced it before, I just wanted to see what it felt like (horrible for me).
I run mine fairly low too but I used to ride trials...I guess we all used to run em pretty low back in the day.

485mm reach, 622mn stack, 29” wheels and 175mm dropper posts. These are massive bikes for anyone. Considerably bigger than some Pro men athletes. Interesting choice when we’re seeing many athletes race a more nimble bike in the EWS.

Incredible, loved it! Felt like watching Evolve but not filmed with a potato from the late 90s. Even the bike is reminiscent of those we used to ride before the 24” street trials things came along. Insane level of riding too. Shame it was so short!

Hey slack seat angles ain’t good for short people either!
But...I have spent time pedalling my enduro bike with a steep seat angle and dipped nose on flatter terrain and it gets tiring. A bike designed for all terrain (and that included flats) needs to have true all round geometry and imo this ain’t far off.

Always jealous of right-hand-rear brakers for the ability to lump the shifter and brake lines together. Makes a bar spin setup easier and is just tidier in general. I’ve often considered trying to mod a front shifter to control the rear mech but never tried it.

Wanted one so bad. A friend had one with a very similar spec but his was the burnished one and had HS33s. Very cool thing, thanks for renewing my jealousy.

Kinda interesting shift with certain brands seemingly going more freeride and others concentrating on enduro and the race scene...then Canyon just bought all the properties on the board. I’m calling shenanigans, there’s no way they got all that dough and all I’ve got is this 50 note. I haven’t even been to jail damnit.

What’s in: sacking off the 11grand bikes, remembering what it’s all about, buying a 6yr old 26” DH rig and heading back to the local spot to jump some shit. And getting back into BMX.

So the hint is that there will be a new title sponsor but not a hint of whom it may be? Or did I leave my brain in last week? It could definitely have happened.
