Thanks for writing that up. Gives me another good data point and your impressions are similar to what I've read/heard from others and also are in line with what people in the Moto world say about the Flexx bars for offroad moto.

I think I'm going to try a set out. My shop doesn't demo them but I'll put a bug in their ear to see if they want to.

I'm thinking of these from a enduro racing standpoint, they might not make times any quicker but being fresher for the last few stages could certainly translate to some time.

Noob question – did the GRIP damper in the Z1 change from the original 2018 FOX version? I own a 2018 Performance GRIP fork, and the 'sweep' dial is definitely NOT a LSC adjuster. It behaves more like an overall LSC+HSC adjuster and lockout. (Great little damper, if it had a dedicated LSC adjust it would be absolutely perfect.)

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments for and against, which should be the standard of quality news. Better to be educated than insulated.

What Dirtworks said...at 5’9” I shoot for a combined reach (stem and frame) between 500-510. I’m on a large TR11 and just ordered a new patrol in Large also. I used to ride around the 430 mark on frames, feels tiny and unstable now. One of my biggest concerns about sizing up was how the bike would handle in tight corners, I laugh at myself now looking back at that...the only “gimmick” was Giant and other brands that followed suit telling us that we needed longer offset on slacker bikes a few years ago. Now at least we have options. If you want to size down and run longer offset, have at it, at least it’s now a decision you can make.
I live in Jackson WY btw, we have every variety of trail from highspeed straights to super sharp corners. The “newer” has yet to feel cumbersome to anybody weve sent out on it around here, S-XL riders all alike, the gain in stability at speed on the other hand...

“Refined” still only clears a 2.4 out back, reach is truthfully a size short, seat tube is still 1-2* too slack as well as 1”+ too long, and if they’d dropped a degree off the head angle they would have opened up better doors for shorter offset forks....bike still hits the target but is def no bullseye

I wouldn't say that's a major problem. Its something one can work around without much issue. Put another way, I've never won/lost a race because my BB was threaded or press fit.

I'm still in shock this bike is so che...err...inexpensive and spec'd this well.
