I've tried to understand the geometry on their US offerings and I can't understand what the goal is. Really steep head angles on their intermediate and aggressive trail bikes. Am I the only one that things their geometry is oddball for current trends? I just don't know who they're marketing their range...more

It's not just you. Steep head angles and short reach. It's no wonder they can't get any traction in the market. KTM, you need an experienced product manager. I'm offering my services, just sayin.

More weight on front end with shorter stem defies conventional wisdom? Typically longer stem for more weight on front end.

In theory yes as they license the design. In practice, not even close as their QC is a joke. The RF is unreliable as can be...the 9.8 the opposite.

You left out 9point8, which is a shame as it is by far the most reliable and has 175 and 200mm options to boot

Zero flats with a Specialized Control casing is unheard of, even with front application. Those things slice just looking at them cross eyed. Perhaps you're not the hack you make out to be! I'm with you on the wider rims. 2.3' are too squared off. Wider rims only make sense if you're willing to heft a 2.5" or greater so you still have a rounded profile.

Funny, my question would be how would he have a bike sponsor? There are a ton of washed up used-to-bes that still want to ride their bike for a living. The return on investment isn't there for a guy who isn't racing or competing at the highest level and garnering the eyeballs to go along with it.

Somebody finally called a spade a spade on the overconstrained rear triangle (i.e., flex pivot). Basically impossible to get proper shock spring and damping rates when the frame is contributing it's own spring and damping rates.

Good list but common, Sedona was long ago a destination before Firsty came on the scene a few years back. Not taking away from what they're doing now.

The 90's called, they want their long chainstays and 30.9 seat tubes that can't accommodate 6" droppers back. Hey it only took Turner 20 years to accept bearing instead of squeaky bushings.
