Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
The biggest chance left to do is obviously geometry wise. Slacker headangle 63-65º, steeper seatangles ~76-78º longer toptubes even on the smaller sizes with longer wheelbases, anything under 1200mm is just silly (even for XS frames). Then, of course, a dropper post that goes down with out the rider needing to sit on the saddle would be AWESOME! Also a type/tube/tubeless system which allows low tyre pressures without risk of burping nor flatting like the Procore system. And for plus tyres to be both light as some are now but with sidewalls that won't tear easily (some sort of kevlar sidewall protection maybe). Those are my thoughts anyway.

Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
@wpplayer18: Look at Motocross bikes. They reached a plateau a while back. The biggest chance recently was the move from 2 stroke to 4 stroke. They reached an ideal wheelsize, tire size, travel size, fork type, geometry, etc a while back and not much difference between brands. This is what will happen with mtbbikes sooner or later.

@e-van: That's the dream! Building sweet trails you don't have to spend loads of time removing brake bumps and thus having time to build new features!

Cannondale 2017 Preview - Press Camp 2016
You should listen to yourselfs Leftie racists: "I hate the leftie but never ridden it." Do you even know the definition of the word "hate"? Sure you may not like the look but HATE? How can you hate it if you've NEVER ridden it!!! The Leftie is way stiffer than any single crown fork out there due to its square shape leg. It is a great piece of engineering from a company who dares to think outside the box. Sure sometimes it doesn't work (thinking outside the box that is) but you gotta try. How many companies can say the same?

2017 Scott Spark and Scale - First Look
The plus bike is a step in the right direction geometry wise. Bravo Scott for going down that road! Shame you didn't do the same with the race bikes...still too roadie (light but with roadie crap handling).

Looks like a cool bikepark! Trails aren't too steep, have good flow and features. Must be nice being a trail crew there haha.

Francisco Pardal's Commencal Supreme DH V4 - Crankworx Les Gets 2016
@zede: a Solid strike size XL has a reach of 453mm with a wheelbase of 1270mm. That is the same reach as most brands L but the long wheelbase is acheived by a 62º headangle and 448mm chainstays. So though it is long in the wheelbase it does NOT feel long when you are on it. A geometron size longest has a reach of 520mm and a wheelbase of 1313mm with a 63.5º headangle. So it feels long in the wheelbase AND when you are on it. A Pole EVO176 DH bike takes things further with 510mm reach, 1350mm wheelbase and 62º headangle. Other longish bikes are: - Santacruz v10 XXL 1280mm wheelbase, 470mm reach, 63.5º - Pivot DH 62.5º, 1291mm wheelbase, 482mm reach - Canyon Sender 63º 1297mm wheelbase, 480mm reach.
