Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
Nobody cares about countries like Bulgaria, Poland or Belarus. Get oil, uprising or Putin and you may be in the News.

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
I rode carbon jekyll with Pike and I was a bit unimpressed. I find it surprising that they liked how the bike goes around the corners because one I rode turned like a DH bike, it was probably good for JClementz speeds but with my skills I was just unable to utilize the incredible stability the bike provided. When in a rockgarden (track I rode was one big rockgarden - 601 at lake Garda) I found it very hard to switch lines, it was pretty much a point and shoot machine buldozering through stuff, but on 601 things can go out of depth of any bike, especially when it gets wet, so you may want to have a bit more control. I actually found Stumpy 29 evo to be more Nimble. Another proof for me that wheelsize is overrated and it is about the complete bike.

It doesn't matter, the chain guide is half dead, due to NW chain rings and clutch rear mech. You may as well live with upper guide only that can be fixed with bb mount. Taco is also half dead because bashring can be up to 50g lighter option

Yes zede, I agree, I should have said that it is ALSO a social construct. I may have added that it is also a commercial construct of energy drink industry. My main point was that as much as MTB grows commercially it also pushes away women and people more prone to fear by stigmatizing it as an extreme sport. Many noobs do that as well talking of relatively easy features as extreme. In general I could compare it to developed sexual practices - while some need porn, sado maso stuff, affairs or "just" having sex everyday, many don't dig current sex culture (propelled by porn, magazines like Cosmopolitan or Playboy) which tries to make EVERYONE think that experimental sexual behaviour is a NORM and is NECESSARY for maintaining happy and SUCCESSFUL relationship, which is bullcrap. We all have sex drive, but we are told it is never enough. So it happens with adrenaline in MTB. Many new to gravity disciplines of MTB talk of it often, about the "kick", "gnar"or more or less unspecified "fun". More advanced riders tend to be more relaxed on "hot" topics, they talk about "flow", training details.

Don't believe your spouse that this was his last purchase of the year, even on the morning of 31st December. If a courier brings a parcel to your door with Tubes inside - it's a decoy! He's probably getting a larger delivery to his work adress!

PHeller - haha, you probably missed that you "labelized" guys in the same way as women. Pursuit of adrenaline in MTB is a social construct, not reality, I see plenty of guys who feel pressed and thus weird because they don't feel the kick, they want to descend a sketchy steep or jump some gap or drop off, but they are scared and they don't want to be scared. Fear kills the chemical reward. That is because MTB, DH in particular is stigmatized by public media as an extreme sport and God forgive me for saying this but things like Rampage or Crankworx are to blame most, for that particular reception. Adrenaline charge is to blame for us being seen as idiots trying to kill ourselves on the bike, whenever I talk to someone not riding about riding they have an impression that DH is about daring no1, being cool no2, skill no 9352. Can you see how Enduro is not so hardcore, while those guys ride tracks as difficult as ones on DH World Cup? How come freaking ski jumping is considered as a classic sport, blokes jump 230m going 120km/h, but give a man a bicycle and let him jump a 2m drop with perfect landing and he's crazy, it's extreme. And because of that bad fame, so he feels when he is about to post a shtty Iphone pic of his "achievement" on his FB. I hate adrenaline, I hate fear, I like skill, I like progression, there is daring to do, but speed and size of jumps come by themselves as soon as skill and some basic fitness is there. I will skip the relation between adrenaline and actually going fast, because one can be more scared to death and in actual danger on a XC bike with narrow bars, than on Champery WC course on modern DH bike

Well you can't prove either of my accusations to be false so your efforts are futile. You must be fun at the parties - Never let the truth ruin a good story - how do you know it's a good story? - exactly

No, I watch Sherlock Holmes. In the way of deduction I dare to suspect that you have some sort of irritation in prostate area, you take the anger caused by it and project it on me.

You better check that prostate man. Not only it makes you pee as often as you describe, it also causes problems with getting and staying hard
