I think the issue is that we want our short travel bikes to be able to endure the same kind of trail abuse as our Enduro bikes for the most part. Manufacturers have recognized this, and while they are using smaller forks and slightly narrowrr wheels on these bikes, the rest of the components are fairly similar in weight, as well as the frames weighing about an extra pound or two in recent years. The big thing I noticed going to a shorter travel 29er, was not the weight, but the agility while descending. These bikes are so flickable and a ton of fun on smoother, flatter terrain where enduro bikes can be dull.

I wonder how the Knolly Fugitive ST would have faired. Mine is setup 140mm/120mm, 66.5HT/65.75HT, 76.5ST/76ST. Great test! Would love a new Banshee.

Super cool break down. I saw the frame link and it is advertised as a 27.5, are you running it mullet?

How did you come across Sunrace 12 speed! That's wild! Do you like it? Why that over SLX 12sp or GX 12sp?

You do realize he has the CSMX8-EA5 cassette on the bike, and that particular cassette is a 11-50T cassette. I have this same cassette on one of my bikes, GX Eagle on another, and XO Eagle on another. The Sunrace cassette shifts fine, and offers an nearly unnoticeable experience to most Eagle or 12sp setups. I also live at 5280ft elevation, and do 45m-1hr climbing on the front range of Colorado before I get a descent, so I understand steep climbing at higher altitudes. I know if I had a perfectly good 11sp XT group around, I probably would have done the same over buying another group set. Is at bling as XTR 12sp or XX1 Eagle? Nope, but it got him Bike of the Day!

I like them! The engagement is great, and they sound great! I have had these on another bike and they have held up well.

Its not the fastest climber, mainly due to the weight, but it climbs well. It would probably do better without Cushcore, but I like having the insert for the way down. The biggest advantage to running the bike in short travel mode is the fact the bike is more nimble and lighter on its feet. Its a pretty damn fun bike to ride, even if it gets rowdy.
