Yay!!! Finally someone openly talking about the 29 versus 27.5 wheel feel. And it being The Freeracer makes it feel far more genuine than anyone else. He didn't try to sell me anything. Completely new level of respect for him. Great insights on his passion to...more

It should be more balanced, but I can't afford the fancy damper I'd like (Avalanche) so I'm stuck messing around on the spring side.

Are the downtube straps long enough for e-bikes maybe?

does this causes the fork to compress by itself more than normal when taking the air out?

Shapeshifter adds weight and complexity for what seems like minimal benefit. Nobody who cares about uphill efficiency is buying a 31 pound bike in the first place. The lower spec models are probably going to be pushing 35 pounds with pedals. No bike in this weight class is ever going to be a quiver...more

Blowing it? If the sales volume doesn't make sense, they won't produce it. At 6'3.5" tall I very rarely see anyone at a bike park as tall as me. Most DH bikes still run 45-50mm stems, not the 35mm of trail bikes. Ends up usually around 10mm difference of reach and stem combined between DH and trail bikes. Not a big deal at all. Not to mention Specialized is almost always on the agility side of the spectrum when it comes to mountain bike fit.

No, these tires are like Maxxis Double Down. Enduro type, not full DH casing.

Riding a 2017 Kona Operator (first year of 27.5) and I can relate to the sore feet at (my) pace in the chop. It's too bad they went with 29er and 148 hub, I've got a decent fork and wheelset I couldn't use anything from if I wanted to build up from a frame.
