An XL with a 430mm seat tube. Rift Zone really pushing things. Opens up 210 droppers for the tall guys, but why not also open it up for short people too? 390 not quite enough for 210 for me, but due to the kink in the seat tube that doesn't matter anyways as I wouldn't be able to insert it very far.

Seeing the Giant's geo in imperial is just foreign to my eyes, despite me being an American.

Judging things negatively without sufficient fact/evidence, instead using imagination, feelings, emotions (e.g. fear) seems to be the most frustrating thing about these a-holes. I do wonder how many valuable resources (e.g. time) are wasted catering ... more »

TPL Racing, well, at least your post serves as motivation to not get concussed. Anyone able to translate its meaning? Is it in response to my post, pointing out the weakness/compromise in the stage and proframe? Reminds me that I've had people argue ... more »

For a tolerant society to survive, the tolerant must be intolerant of intolerance itself. There's a problem for a tolerant society when people with intolerant opinions, based off of fear and other irrational things, are using them as the basis for a ... more »

The TLD Stage was marketed on review sites and stores claiming "EPP-lined chinbar for multiple impacts". Seems to be too brittle to do that. My chinbar fractured when I fell into weeds on the side of the trail (moderately downsloped and the ... more »

Gator, does your Bell SuperDH "creak"? As in, sounds like the liner is rubbing against the foam noises?

Is this the "next wave" of geo evolution that Brandon Turman was predicting when he reviewed the Patrol (SBG)?

Beware that the chinguard is attached to the main shell by the plastic shell, and that there's a thinned "seam" where it is weakest. Looks like a design oversight to me. Just wanted to get this out there if anyone's concerned about safety. Don't want a chinbar breaking and smacking your face with a jagged plastic edge anyways, when you want it to protect that very part.

Yes, size M and 150mm dropper post. The seat tube is 432 mm.

Is that dropper really 210mm or is it partially lowered?

What frame size and dropper post length? Tried to look for a frame decal, but I guess it's on top of the top tube, knowing older Rocky Mtn frames.

Size Med and 150? 457 seat tube length?

Size L, right? Also, you switched to Shimano 12 speed RD and shifter, but not cassette because of the lack of P321 microdrive?

What position are you using when you're measuring? I personally like the "Universal Athletic Position", which is like a partial squat, that follows the heavy-feet and light-hands riding style, and what I base my sweet spot balance on.

You trust lightweight FF helmets to offer similar protection? Crash reports on the chinbar made me lose confidence in the TLD Stage and Fox Proframe specifically. The Proframe broke at the seam on the side and got pushed in to injure the rider's face ... more »
