Added reply in a thread Why are so many "MTBers" A*holes when new things happen? 11/10/2019 9:00 AM

This is a very relevant question that I ask myself frequently. I may be impaled with a shark-tooth chainring for saying this: there are only a very select few bikers I relate to and enjoy being around. I feel that most are sorta jerko's. I have been ... more »

Added reply in a thread Is there some formula to determine stem length to handlebar width when upgrading handlebar? 10/31/2019 12:33 PM

I like my mountain bikes to have the same fit regardless of discipline so I can just jump on and go. This means the same saddle height, saddle set back, handlebar width, handlebar reach (I use nose of saddle to center of stem/handlebar junction AND nose ... more »

from the looks of it, one of the lighter frames out there. very clean as well. the quick custom geo thing must kick ass - no waiting for a mule that probably feels quite different than the end product.

@adam_schaeffer - with the whole eyelets discussion thing... this is a bike that is meant to get every last drop of performance. i believe a trunnion shock has better performance related to everything in the shock being... bigger. ya, it could be an expensive wear point, crappy coarse threads on the fasteners, and blah blah blah. but if there is no other technology available that will offer better suspension performance, what would you do if your salary was directly related to your race results?
