Nukeproof Mega 275 and 290 - First Ride
Those super short chainstays on the Canfield make a 29er viable for average-sized people. If you're tall then those same sub 430mm chainstays basically put you behind the rear axle at full seat height. The E29 at 430mm is borderline but going much shorter you compromise front-rear balance in some sizes. That being said, going to 450mm on this bike might be too much? But I'd have to try it to really know. The Yeti SB6 has 442mm chainstays and that's not stopping anyone getting around corners.

The frame price is reasonable under current conditions.

Nukeproof Mega 275 and 290 - First Ride
Those chainstays seem long but I'm 6'6". On my E29 it always feels a bit like I'm sitting over the rear axle. The additional 2cm of CS might be just the thing to feel balanced on the bike. I still don't understand why the head tube is so short. Find me an XL person who wants a short head tube I dare you. That being said I really like the look of this bike.

Opinion - They're All Flawed Bikes
I'm pretty much always searching for 'perfect'. But perfect evolves and means different things in different places. If anything perfect means what's working really well right now, what I'm used to.

Introducing the Aircraft Full Face Helmet From 100%
These helmets pass the same safety tests. The factors you pay for are weight and fit. A Fox Rampage weights around 1500g. Most carbon helmets are under 1000g. That's a lot of weight saved. And what good is a cheaper lighter helmet if it fits poorly?

Is This Adjustable Stem Ingenious or Unnecessary?
A couple of hours riding around, get a feeling for a few options. Then return it.

6 Ideas for a Better Winter
Weightlifting is key. Almost all of my cycling friends would be classified as physically weak despite being fit on the bike. When I'm tuned up in the gym I'm more flexible, have more power on demand, better power endurance and most importantly: my ability to brace through the posterior chain is totally dialled (for better crash survivability). I'm able to run bigger gears pretty much all the time (I no longer need the 42t bail-out cog on my 1x10) and walk away from crashes that would send most of my friends to the hospital. And when I'm tuned up I only weigh a couple pounds more - a fair trade for adding 10-15% extra power to every pedal stroke.
