On stock stroke the link will provide 145mm at a 20% progression rate and 157mm with a 60mm stoke damper.

Yessir!

Well Laurie isn’t tall so it works for him. Also look at the geo on the old one, even though it is a mondraker it is super short by modern standards.

e.13 wheels instead of the Mavics...

Looks like most of the big names are running the mullet, except the Santa Cruz boys and Amoury, there aren’t that many more on the full 29? I suppose most privateers and smaller teams running the older Supreme. In contrast I think there will also be very few full 27.5 bikes still out there too...

I think height is going to be deciding factor for most riders. I can barely keep a 29er out of my ass on a trail bike no way could I do one on a dh rig without some serious change in technique

Good point actually, one I never gave much thought. Even though after buying a 29er bike last year I had two assbuzzing moments in the first few weeks of riding it. Though that was pushing the bike down low over a 'drop' or something along those lines, I'm not sure suspension travel plays thaaaaat much of a role here (full compression events are most likely going to happen with the rider more centered over the bike).

But nevertheless, it's a fair point and could be an issue with smaller riders, yeah. And I can also see how the loooooong 29er works for the likes of Greg.

Ass buzz has a lot to do with seat height too. I just put a 180mm dropper on my enduro and I find if I try to squash a jump or even just pump a roller, I’ll feel the tire buzz me. When I had a 125 post on the enduro, I never once got buzzed. First ride on the 180 I found myself in a lower position, and able to turn better, but got buzzed a couple times.

Snoopin around lookin for the best trails and sketchiest lines

Good point too, I went from a 125 to a 170 dropper with the change of bikes.

I forgot to mention that I'm running an xl and am 190 cm tall, so ass buzzing is less of a problem for me in general.

Same here, 191 cm on an L sized Mondraker Foxy XR alloy that felt like a blessing from the very beginning and still seems like that. Dropper is standard 150 mm and it's enough.

Looks to be a 200mm postmount and is shown in the 180mm travel variety. Wonder if the will go up to 190.

Also the SX 27 has Schwalbe tires but the specs say Ass/Dissector.

absolutely, little birdy told me E8000 motors will be interchangeable too.

I'll believe that when I see it, but the source I got this from is a good one. I'm excited. The new steps firmware is excellent and it's hard to think how they can improve that. I'm thinking another 10-20nm of torque and most importantly HEAPS FUCKIN QUIETER! People can hear me from 200 yards away lol.
