It’s nice to see they rearranged the Nobby Nic thread. On the outgoing model, in the wider sizes(2.6 and 2.8), the cornering knobs were shifted so far inboard on every other knob, that they became intermediate knobs, leaving huge gaps in the core ring knobs.
Not very confidence inspiring,

Ultra soft Mary in Super Trail casing, please! Lots of us like to pedal a lot and live in places where it rains.

Same for you, Maxxis. There's a lack of gooey front tire options that aren't pushing 1200g.

Yes! Why bikes are still coming with ~31mm seat tubes is a mystery to me. Every year, seat tubes get shorter and posts longer, so a beefier I sat post would be really useful.
Handlebars got bigger, even though the gains are questionable. Hubs got wider, even though it makes compatibly a pain.
Yet a simple seat tube, which could be skimmed down to fit older narrower droppers has to remain stuck in the past...

It’s a great post but I do wonder how long they’ll last for heavier guys and slack SA’s. IMO anything over 170mm should be 34.9mm and have a proprietary sized stanchion.

And what about the XL vs XXL? That is somehting a lot of us taller folks are interested in. Pros and cons? Difference in feel?

I honestly haven't even taken it out of the long chain stay position. The bike works really really well with the longer chain stay, I haven't had any reason to try the short position. I have tried the H vs. L shock position, and same thing here, really no reason in my...more

I'm on the XXL now with the chainstays in the longer position. I will eventually switch to the shorter position and see how it changes the ride quality, but to be honest, I think the long position could be even longer...

Did you ride it with both chainstay positions?
