Many times over. Gotta wonder why someone would need 27.5 or 29er specific fenders...

Yep. Binder Fenders FTW. Available in all sorts of colours. Make 2 for $1.79 plus zip ties.

Mossy Ride in Squamish - Video
Beautiful shots. I've never seen an Author Patriot, but man, looks like a beefy Altitude Aluminum. It even has the same CS pivot placement as Smooth-Link.

Pinkbike Awards 2015: Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
Alias, how many replies are you going to make, saying the same thing. A little smug about being able to over-pay for bikes, are we?

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
150mm is great on a hardtail. Slacker head angles allow more aggressive riding styles and put more emphasis on "riding the fork". Having a bit more travel up, as long as the geo is designed around it, allows for more mitigation when things get hairy. The problem with raked out hard tails from 15 years ago, is they were never designed for it. Basically dirt jumpers with huge forks.

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
Don't forget the DMR Trailstar. That thing looks absolutely mint!

Ragley Blue Pig Hardtail - Review
Riding a hardtail is completely different than riding a full suspension bike. It's not better, it's different, and that's why it is enjoyable. There's no better feeling than accomplishing the same line gnarly line that you enjoy on the FS, while dealing with the unmitigated chaos of the hardtail. It also forces greater attention paid to every minute detail of the terrain, since there is such a small margin of error, and that trial-focus carries over to the full suspension bike when you switch back. Hard tails are also way more fun on mellower trails and at slower speeds, so great for night rides, rides with buddies and beers where you just want to muck about, or girlfriend rides where you know your speed is going to be lagging a bit. Every hard tail review creates the same debate, but really it's not debatable. Full suspension is fun. Hard tails are fun. If you only have one side, you're missing out on the other.

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie - Review
That would be a deal breaker for me. A bike like this would be a "winter-mostly" affair, and poor handling in mud does not make a good winter bike. I'll just keep rocking my hard tail in the winter, with most voluminous 26" tires I can find.
