Guerrilla Gravity Megatrail + Megatrail SS - Models Updated
@cheetamike: That I knew about Devinci, and good on'em for keeping it in Canadia! And to be clear, I am in now way suggesting one is better than the other from a product quality standpoint.

@hellbelly: Totally agree they make slayer bikes. I had a Mk1 Spitty, which I still regard as the original low/slack trail bike. The bushing thing never worked out, but otherwise, that was my favorite bike until I got a GG Megatrail.

@hellbelly: Fair enough, but I will again reiterate the (bad ass IMO) BB height component. ~12.9" (with a 160 fork) is corner murdering low & awesome.

Wut? So a 65.5* HA is now considered conservative? To be clear, I am referring to the "full-on" Megatrail model, not the SS, which seems appropriate since you mentioned "heavy hitting enduro/AM bikes". Personal preferences may differ of course, but when a bike starts getting into the 64* range, then its probably about time to ride an actual DH bike. Around 66* is the sweet spot for me for 95% of my riding, and when it gets a little hairier, 65'ish feels about right as well. And with a 13" BB height and 165mm of rear travel? That is damn low by any standards, and more important to me than a half degree HA difference. Throw in the fact that they were one of the first adopters of longer reach measurements, I think you could argue the geo is still very aggressive and appropriate for this type of bike.

Hmm, Banshee is made in N. America? News to me if true.

@m-t-g: I don't know how you deal with sage intraweb observations like this...Props to you good sir! PB - "Man, I sure wish it had chain stays..." You - "It does" PB - "Well I'll be, I guess it does after all...Just wish it'd fit a 135mm axle and had a 1.125" heat tube for my Girvin" You - [glares at portrait of Charles Darwin, sighs deeply]

Yeah, phuck standover height and having room for a water bottle. What the hell were they thinking? For serious tho, I get that some people might not dig the top tube shape (I'm not one of them as I think it looks aces), but sometimes function trumps form. And if I had spare money, they'd be taking it from me.

Industry Nine MatchStix Multi-Tool Axle - Review
@Lookinforit: It's only a matter of time before someone goes full enduro and designs a multi-tool that fits in your bum (e.g. the "dark secret multitool"). Nothing is off limits for next level enduro.
