Hey @tnewpher There wasn't any discussion around this that I was involved in. It's not something that I would personally recommend and given the bike wasn't designed for it, I don't think SCB would suggest it either. But, you could do it if that were something that you...more

Santa Cruz Hightower CC

I just scored the 2016 HT in Shimano XT build, known as Hightower CC XE, for $2600/shipped. I love this bike.... especially when it costs $2200 cheaper than equivalent, 2016 Pivot Switchblade.

XL frame, on the MTBR.com thread, it looks like Large and under fit smaller 21oz bottles. I like the newer Camelbak Podium bottles because they lack the big groove near the top and hence fit shorter and narrower at the top for more clearance.

2016 Pivot Mach 429SL XX1

One badass, XC/Trail ride. My Pivot Mach 429SL went from an XC/Marathon climbing rocket to a boulder-eating, berm-shredding, 4 foot drops-to-flat beast, once I switched to a Pike 120mm fork. This thing gives you a set of balls like a mofo.

Yeah, I was pleasantly surprised by the durability of the wheels so far. About 2.5 months. Let me put it like this. I have every expectation to ride them well into next year without any issues. The stock wheels on my remedy were already dented and the hubs were starting...more

The Superfly was a rad ride, but things are progressing quickly these days. I think you'd be surprised with a ride on a new school 29er with a little more modern geo. They're an absolute blast.

One thing not mentioned in the article is the simplicity of DT's hubs. I have plenty of shop mechanic experience, and years of experience building custom homes, so I'm somewhat mechanically inclined--but there is just no denying the sheer simplistic genius of DT's rear...more

I still haven't found a compelling reason to ditch my 2012 Superfly carbon just yet. With 120mm front travel/110mm rear...it still goes anywhere I need it to.

Tried reading the article but all I could see out of the corner of my eye was the Matt McDuff bail over and over and over and over and over again on the loop of doom. Wish you could pause that ad.

Rode these to replace my 1442g Easton EC90 wheels. Honestly, it's still a lateral move -despite the Spline XM-1501 being a few millimeters wider internally. Easton's Ballistic Carbon is tough to beat.

Damn, this is a huge loss to the whole MTB community. I was lucky enough to ride with him; he is one of the chillest guys one will ever meet. Shred in peace Kelly.
