There are discounted transitions? They seem just as pricey as anybody else.

SC is another company with extremely slack actual seat angles. Murder on tall people.

It seems nobody knows the difference between virtual (or effective) seat tube angles and actuals... and media generally can't be bothered to explain it in the space of a short review. I've generally found that 76 and upwards as an actual seat angle is good enough, but so many bikes have actual seat angle in the high 60 degree range.

saw that too - just complete BS on their part. If the build were XT with a few SLX components, fine, but it's the other way around.

I’d say it’s a bit of both. A guy who’s fast, works hard and wasn’t a slave to the lousy fashion choices (pyjamas!) of the industry. Either way I’m stoked for the guy.

I like it. I also see guys position the crank so the chainstay hides it but I prefer it to be level.

I've ridden with Roscoe and Lacy. They're good people/mammals. And that dog could shred. Nice to see he still gets out - hope he gets several more years.

list on a Yeti in Canada is $4600 and $4500 for a SC. I mean, it's a lot of dough either way, but...

interesting that specialized flubbed the exit routing of the rear brake cable that it needs a zip tie to keep it out of the spokes...

you just flush the system once to clear out the mineral oil? this sounds dodgy - warranty is done I guess.

he had a full ride with MS- Mondraker last year and Ghost a few years prior. Props to him for continuing, but he already quit his day job once. Something tells me he'd take a full ride again next year if it's offered.
