Cool.Just trying to get a perspective as I was looking at an XL build which uses a 160mm HT. Did they elongate the CS length for that XXL Build as well?

I have the Jaybrd Bluebud X and the Beats Wireless. Both have issues in my experience.
Both have issues with reception when you turn your head ,. They lose the connection with my iPhone 6 frequently. Jaybirds are better but the DreBeats are the worst in this regard.
The Jaybirds after 2 years of use only last 1 hr. thats it. Almost worthless to use anymore.
Buyer beware on the battery issue. They seem to go as advertised at start and degrade quickly over time.

The is exactly my regret bike as well. Climbed horribly, I don't care what the reviews said, shock leverage ratio was squirrely. Hated it. Sold it and bought the bike that works best for me Turner Burner v3.1. It never felt right having a Yeti next to ... more »

Added a comment about feature From the Workbench: At-Home Tubeless Conversion 5/6/2016 8:54 AM

All pretty basic and accurate. A couple of items need to be reconsidered.
1) I've used Gorilla tape and it is great stuff for sure. However it is pretty heavy and thick and it will break down. Removing the adhesive is a MFer especially on Carbon rims since you don't want to scrape those with anything sharp for fear of damaging the layup. So don't use it. I use Stans and/or Wheels Mfg tape which is very thin. I use a narrow Stan's for the first pass over the spoke holes then a wider layer of Stan's or Wheels tape that rolls up to the sidewall edge.
2) Instead of cutting the valve hole which can lead to a small leak if a cut goes too far I use an awl and heat it with a propane torch to melt a hole for the valve.
3) Tape selection is still the critical dilemma in these conversions and I have my system. There is still room for lots of improvement in this area. I still get blowouts from broken spokes when they occur. A more flexible and adaptable tape or strip that can be used on a variety of rims would be ideal.

Don't quote me on this, but I think the taller stack height of the RFX reduces the reach a little. So basically the reach on this bike isn't quite as short as it appears. I'm not saying if the stack on it were to be dropped the reach would be the same as the new bronson, but it would...more

I don't think the long chain stays are guilt of the lack of climbing traction.
It is a fallacy that short stays = climbing traction For an extreme example, look at hill climb motorcycles.
The long stays have draw backs, but that is not one of them. I have a Yeti with long stays and I...more

Longer chain stays help us taller folks with climbing. Keeps the front end down, helps with traction. Noticed it when I switched to longer drop outs on my Spitfire.
