At no point have I defended his behavior in anyway. I am simply empathetic to the fact the people make mistakes. I also don’t think he has done anything that’s remotely unforgivable. As I’ve said before the thing that really bothers me about “the cancel ... more »

How is it a team rumor exactly? I have no issue with this on this site but how you chose to put it up makes it easy to question your intentions.

That’s an interesting thought for sure. They could bring back the remedy 29 as a substitute for those wanting a long travel 29 but no hp. But please. 400mm seattube on the m/l. Bikes are more fun with the seat under your butt instead of in your chest. ... more »

Most people riding hardtails are looking for a bit more pop and agility compared to out right stability. The rear of your bike is going to be bouncing anyways so you are going to ride rear center or off the back of the bike even if you are going fast. So basically without rear suspension the pros of lengthening the back end is less likely to outweigh the cons. Every bike with adjustable dropouts I’ve even ridden has ended up with the wheel slammed all the way in.

I would definitely be interested to try one sized down and see if a shorter reach but still an extremely slack ht angle could possibly work better for me. But having tried a few hardcore hardtails in the past I haven’t been a huge fan of the longer slacker movement on hardtails. (Love a low bb though). I feel there is an increase to imbalance of front and rear traction, the front end becomes slow and steals some of that hardtail snappiness especially in flatter sections (our trails are mostly super steep or flat with little in between), and it became harder to get over the back wheel and still weight front end to keep traction in the rear wheel in the steeps or unweighting the rear of bike in rough sections.

I could definitely see one working at a bike park or somewhere with truly well made bike specific trails. It certainly excelled in fast open sections with space between features, jumps, and corners. But I’d probably want an f/s bike in those cases and I suspect would still prefer riding something slightly more conservative in a hardtail.

No way that’s not a life altering injury even with a full recovery. There is no solution to the risks these guys take. Though I wish they’d put rampage on a delay and not show crashes like that at all. Seeing Tom like that is burned into my memory more ... more »
