It's weird that they don't come out and say that e-bikes are obviously the reason this exists. I kept reading it and wondering why they released this weird niche product... oh yeah! E-bikes.

So many laces! Bring back boas, laces get stiff with dirt and mud and are so much harder to use.

Sorry just meant in general and the lack of both new and used options in 27.5.

My wife insisted on a short travel 27.5 and it's been REALLY hard to find one.

What wheels?
Looks like you could knock off a pound with a bit more $ and/or air shock (I know, weight weenie here). VERY intriguing ride.

The combo is amazing, I’ve been on eagle (not axs, an X01/GX mash up) for the last couple of years and the shifting on this set up is a definite marked improvement. Obviously the AXS shifting is really consistent and precise, but being able to just hold the paddle down and mash on the pedals while changing from...more

Would love to see a new carbon rim shootout. One bike multiple rims and a series of repeatable tests.

I almost ordered these rims to do a custom wheel build, but they did not compare favorably to alloy options. In 650b 30mm wide, a Stan's Flow MK3 rim is actually 5 grams lighter and a DT Swiss XM81 is only 5 grams heavier. Considering those rims cost about $100 each and...more

If you have to over-spring the shock even with the largest volume spacer I think that answers the question already.

Funny how the increasing weight of bikes recently is making this look more and more appropriate.

Funny because I do most of my bashguard smashing on technical climbs and getting over low-speed logs and rocks, not on downhills. I would never want an MTB without one.

Our choice to grab a 27.5-inch version took into account a number of elements that do not merit defense in this context. I will assure you, it has nothing to do with the existence of the Santa Cruz Nomad.

I tested the Nomad (medium)
The Giga (large) is being tested by someone else, in another...more

The fact we're to the point that "Budget" brakes are too powerful is pretty neat.

Absolutely a 36 is sufficient for this bike. Quit succumbing to the marketing. 36's have been great and still are unless maybe you weigh 300#.
