Where's the flex-stay part of it supposed to be? Mid-way up the seat stay?

Why not an angleset to steepen the HA for more weight on the front? Combine with short offset fork and fewer spacers under the stem.

I'd go as far as suggesting an eccentric BB to increase CS length too, if you have an compatible BB shell (PF30).

99% of the other bikes out there have CS too long in small, including Nukeproof here.

Privateer has it figured out. Marin seems good for shorties too. I don't feel bad for tall guys, cause you got like dozens of options, and Marin could be a choice for those who actually want short CS for getting steezy.

It's rare to see the chainstay fit between the chainring and tire like that.

I'm super interested in climbing too. I got a bike that pedals so softly, custom steel FS, that it makes me notice how harshly my knees feel strain while climbing other super stiff bikes. Wondering if something like this takes off the edge in a similar way.

Also you can suffer pedal kickback when the hub is not engaged.

I’m interested to see if they can get then pedaling dialed. For me I mostly don’t mind pedal kickback when descending but it can be really awful in technical climbs. However I wonder if how the device works...more

More like other bikes make room for a water bottle by making the downtube lower.

Just like the early 29ers... long ass CS, which never really found favor with the long time hardcore riders until the front end stretched out to balance them out

The mental gymnastics to test the logic that a bike with a motor extends the limits of bicycle components, which others seemingly claim to push to their limits without a motor... I have little patience for how long it takes people to disprove these stupid generalizations.

Also, finding that 4x4 and moto trails can be fun to ride... should be a duh, but I guess those climbs that go straight up the hill, without a smooth line at all, intimidated mtn bikers.

Fully Custom POLE STAMINA 140

Interesting to see all the different interpretations of "maxed", "no holds barred", and "dream" bike builds. Quite some diverse interpretations. Would be boring if everyone picked the same parts. Good contrast to that Revel one I saw with Intend fork and shock.

How many miles you have on your Hellkat? I had an amazing first 300 miles on mine, able to ride trails without touching the brakes, taking corners all hotter than usual, but the grip fell off suddenly. I took it to a bike park and the knobs got trashed. Disappointing compared to the longevity and consistency of Maxxis.

A floating brake. Those were before my time. Why'd they become a relic of the past?

At 0:45, Tydon's fork seems to disappear, creating an illusion of having some crazy leading link fork.
