Why live valve? I thought one of the benefits of the dw link was gimmicks weren't necessary because the superior traction the system offered.

Long, low, slack and "steep" should now be the saying... No more slack seat tube angles please! ( At the very least stop making the XL STA slacker than the medium...)

On the topic of underbiking... no question they're great fun. but as a daily driver, the mismatched intent will lead to breakage sooner rather than later. As a result, you'll be punishing your buds who have "overbiked" in the name durability, as they'll have to wait around for you while you fix...more

I had an extra 150mm 29er fork so I installed it on my Remedy (27.5). The Remedy came with a 160 fork so the 10mil drop helped with the head angle. I actually loved how it descended and cornered. Climbing was a bit of a struggle, I think if I had a 44 offset instead of the 51 offset it would...more

I put a 27.5x2.8 on the back of my 2015 Santa Cruz Superlight 29er and never went back. This is a cross country frame with only 100mm shock. The 27.5 plus on the back not only slackened the bike but feels like it added suspension in the back. Paired with a 120mm fork it feels great. BB drop has...more

Something must be wrong with geo numbers. Size medium is supposed to be almost 10 cm shorter - wheelbase than size large but reach difference is only 2,5 cm. Head angle is the same and so is chainstay length. Wheelbase on size large must be somwhere around 1230 mm or something.

Danny’s bike was not stock. He was running factory-only Unobtanium links and offset shock bushings. Lower BB and slacker HA.

Seems like an "OK" value when it comes to DTC models. The YT Capra 27.5 Base or the Commencal Meta AM 29 Ride offer slightly improved build kits, better geo, proven performance, and a better unboxing experience for $100 less. 70 Degree seat angle???

Hardline would have been SO good for that. (@#!%^#!!!! Jamis...) What about the Pipe Dream...?

JKN... I may talk shit about them looking like PVC pipes glued together, but I really do think they are sweet looking bikes!

GG posted on Instagram that they'd mix and match wheel sizes during builds for 30.00 bucks extra. Pretty sweet to get matching mixer wheels instead of something like my ghetto "random" 27.5/29er wheelset! ;0
