Pretty tired of seeing 6k builds with heavy cassette options. These price range bikes should have XO cassette, not GX.

I'm a busy guy with two young kids, a great wife and a needy dog. I routinely look at the results first to see if it's something worth watching. This goes for Formula 1 (sorry Hamilton I just don't care when you win another flag to flag snoozefest) as well as downhill (not an issue this season for the pro men).

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?

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
