WAKi-Leaks Installment 8 - Mental Side of MTB
Not an absolute statement but obviously a subjective opinion: I liked this one a lot, more than any other you wrote so far. But, you really have a problem with Joe Graney / VPP / SC and it might be time for you to start a GIANT and INTENSE (ironic isn't it?) therapy to chase that EVIL out of your mind. You really FOCUS too much on that and it might feel like a huge CANYON gap standing in front of you but once over it, you won't understand anymore how it FELT to have such YETI chasing you. Make the TRANSITION Waki. Stop living with ZUMBIs around you.

Give me the name of a shop having your exact spokes in your exact length instock, as well as the same rim or at least one with equivalent erd? Never seen that but it may exist. I have DT spokes and some on stock. I have a shimano derailleur and one on stock as well.

Exactly my thoughts. I just have one question to Schwalbe (who never replied to me): Is the valve stem long enough for this sort or rims? Carbon rims usually have a rather long distance between the bed and the inside of the rim.

Pedalling efficiency will obviously have a lot of importance for those racing the bike (ACC anyone? ). You don't want to take your hand off the bar each time you have pedalling section. An effecient bike can probably earn you seconds on a full day of racing.

I liked the Pivot Mach6 as long as I was standing on the pedals. But that seat angle... @groghunter: no problem of pedal strokes with the Spartan ? I've tried one and it was horrible in technical terrain. It might have been set on the lowest position though. I didn't check that.

I'm 1m86, so somewhere between 6'1 and 6'2 I think. I currently ride a Nomad XL (the old ones) and could feel happier with something a bit longer but not too much. @groghunter: I wasn't thinking of a kinked seatpost, but rather an offset of the head, say like a specialized command, and unlike most of the others: Reverb, KS Lev, Thomson, Fox. 29ers are an option, they have some great advantages and a few drawbacks. But the feel is just so different! I'll wait for a Mondraker Rune Carbon. If it's as sexy as the Foxy then it's even better :)

Thomson adjustable seatpost has no offset. So it sounds like I better not try! I'll look for another bike then.

It doesn't tell me how it will be for me. Seriously I start considering using a seatpost with offset but use it front side back. That's gonna look horrible but finally we'll have a comfortable pedaling position.

It's not the suspension I want to get explain, but rather the trend to put shitty flat seat angles again, like in the 90s when the frames where too short. Except that now, the top tubes get ever longer. Which means that if the frame feels now long enough when standing on the pedals, it's just bloody too long when seating. I know, the value says 73, or 72 something depending on the fork... when the saddle is down. Those ridiculous offset; when you're tall, make you feel like you're having a 70° seat angle. Progress? No. Pity, I was interested in the bike.
