Gamut P20s ISCG05 Black 32-34 Includes all spacers, mounting bolts and chainring bolts 9which dont come in the box from new). Two cracks on the guard mounting holes which hasn't effected anything. The mounting bolt heads have deformed and split a little, much to my surprise, most certainly weren't over torqued, but they snug down and hold everything in place fine. sliders are fine, boomeraing is straight, o-ring on slider is worn, but a spare is included. Reduced to £35posted

Pinkbike Poll - Adjustable Geometry
Im an advocate for predictability, whether it be suspension or frame geo. Go altering the bike for every ride, you no longer remember where the limits are, handling quirks may develop, all of which knock confidence and will make you ride slower and maybe less controlled. Also, as the article says, just like suspension, geometry adjustment needs someone who understands it to drive it, it'll be really easy to end up with something rubbish, I reckon far more than the 33% the article suggests. The way i see it, geometry is a fine blend of every aspect, go changing HA, it's going to have knock on effects on more than steering and BB height, adjustable geometry gets people too hung up on one ingredient in that blend at no doubt detriment to others. A sorted geo bike, is a sorted geo bike, it is also one of the reasons why you buy a particular bike. I believe adjustable geo is just a market feature for sales, since if you have infinitely adjustable geo, why would another bike of equivalent weight be any better if you dont understand suspension, aye?

Yeti SB66 - Tested
I guess what i disagree with is the bike simply being painted as a xc/trail bike, it's capable of a lot more than that, it doesn't seem to me you're pushing the frames "gnar" capabilities in the article and comments. Yea the bike obviously isn't in the same category as a bottlerocket, entourage or ns soda to make a few similar travel comparisons, i would certainly say in terms of capability for me, it falls into the same category as a covert, meta sx or nomad, something you can pedal and rag. I certainly see it as a more capable bike than pivot mach 5.7, stumpy evo and lapierre zesty for comparison which is where i generally see it pitched at. I see it being measured as where you'd realistically happily pedal the thing, then comparing based on others that pedal to the same extent, rather than thinking right, i can rag this thing, o wait, i can pedal too. For example " the long feel of the frame. makes the bike feel a bit awkward in the air, and places the SB66 more in the trail bike category", just buy based on geo? Im a medium, but went small, best handling mtb ive ridden in the air. As for my build not being burly enough to justify my statements, i like light bikes for handling, i'll take the progressiveness of air for added bottom out along with the initial firmness for something to push off and pump, over the weight and minor suppleness gain of coil, i gave the coil/coil a go. Mine is a setup im more than happy riding where everyone else has the DH bike out. At the end of the day though, in terms of capability, it's all down to the riders ability and comfort zone. If you need coil front and rear and burly wheels for that mental boost, fair enough, bolt them onto a sb, it'll be happy with it, it's geo, weight and stiffness is ready for it. Obviously, this is all opinion, our opinions may conflict, it dont matter, its just chatting rubbish about bikes.
