I didn't have the saddle slammed forward, so that could have steepened things for me. I found it to be similar to most of the other modern bikes I've ridden lately. Like the rest of the geometry, the seat angle isn't "progressive", but I never felt like I was out the back door while seated.

Using the upper mount (pictured), I had room for the tube/canister, plus a piggyback shock. A nice option for sure.

I would ride my current trail bike over what I raced on at MSA in 2000 as a U19 racer. I can recall riding behind another athlete and always joking that our bikes flexed so much... we went through derailleur hangers routinely just from all the lateral ... more ยป

Production bikes have little shock fenders, like you can see in Vital's review.

We love nerding out, no thanks needed. Definitely lots of great bikes out there, which makes things tougher for us in many ways. I think 'enduro' can be defined in more than one way: a) as a race discipline and b) as meander up, shred down, daily driving. My sense is that Eminent wanted option B with the Haste, whereas the Pole Machine looks like it might be more about the clock and gravity, less about daily driving anywhere comfort. Doesn't mean that the Haste isn't capable of winning as is, but I would guess that if pure racing was their focus the crew at Eminent would have produced something a little different. In the end, just another solid option to make your next bike purchase that much more challenging, especially if you want something unique.

I had this conversation with the guys at Eminent. I mentioned in the article that they settled on the numbers as a happy medium deliberately. They looked at more 'progressive' numbers, but didn't want to sacrifice a great daily driver to align with the longer, lower, slacker trend. It has a shorter front end than what I've been riding, but I was at home pretty quick.

That's right. It doesn't rattle however. A little moto foam or electrical tape would seal them off completely if that's what you're after, but they're tight enough as is in my opinion.

Typically flat riders ride more rear spring (because they're weighting their feet more and leaning back more) and clip riders run more front spring. I used to bump up two clicks of low speed in my fork when I switched to clips. Now I just run clips all the time cuz I finally...more

That's my fault actually. I had zero pad left on my rear brake at that point. They don't squeal like that when there's actual pad there...

Fair enough. Speaking personally I would say that the label doesn't mean much to me if it performs as advertised, which it did. I'm hoping to get my hands on one to ride at home.

We noted the same thing. When we asked Canyon's engineers to label the rear end, they defined it as Horst-link nevertheless.
