Not sure if double headers will be welcomed by teams... Less logistic, but THIS :

Thanks Blade! Bike checks seem more an more diluted nowadays so I really wanted to do something extremely in-depth.

Thanks, Paul

Thanks for reply, your conclusion is a great summary of what MTB is.
I don't often ride rock gardens, nor gnarly descents, and I found myself being happier (but slower and/or sketchier of course) on my trail bike in bikeparks than on my full DH rig wassat

My goal was to create the ultimate do-it-all MTB that would perform in the terrain I ride in most - Finale Ligure and central Europe where we chairlift, shuttle, or pedal big road climbs to take on gnarly and steep descents. That said, I have also done >100km XC rides on...more

This bike-check is awesome. This bike seems to be an absolute weapon to ride light-speed through rock-gardens. I get the arguments in favor of long chainstays, etc...
BUT ! Am I wrong thinking short chainstays (425mm max...) are fun ?

I build it for the bikepark.

I've always been a fan of simplicity and for what I'm doing with this bike I don't need either so I thought it would be cleaner, simpler, lighter and more original without them.

Also the cockpit is a dream without all those levers.

Added reply in a thread Would a Mullet bike set up make hitting jumps easier?? 8/20/2020 6:42 AM

Nope, I took the radius for the wheel. Anyway, maybe I overestimated the 29" wheel diameter. But in the end we agree on the use of mulletting a bike.

Added reply in a thread Would a Mullet bike set up make hitting jumps easier?? 8/20/2020 3:05 AM

Yep, mulletting a 29er looks like less beneficial than mulleting a 27,5 frame. BB already low becomes too low, chainstays are longer, etc... Mulletting a 27,5 can have advantages for sure, putting the BB a little higher from the rear wheel and lower ... more »

Looks like a perfect tire for dusty conditions, and without cutting them down !

I took part in an enduro race in 2016, it was my only experience of it ('cause I hate all the logistics I've to put together ^^), and f***in' loved it ! But even if it was in the rulebook that NO "trainings" were allowed, a whole lot (a third at least)
