Word on that probi^^^^ We had to drop the post into the frame to get it low enough for DH trails.

Cannondale Jekyll 27.5 Carbon Team - Review
Where we test bikes and where we shoot them is not always the same place. Also, there are more factors than matching numbers that make bikes work. Consider that some suspensions adopt lower or higher ride heights than others when in motion, and that a good designer takes this into consideration when setting the static BB height of a particular design. Imagine how a Santa Cruz V 10 would handle if its ride height remained at 25-percent sag. I rarely look at the numbers until after the testing period, so that test riders can judge a particular bike on its performance. Afterwards, we use the numbers to help clarify our thoughts and to answer questions about the results. In the case of the Jekyll 27.5, the numbers don't accurately predict its perfomance, as mentioned in the text.

Ask Pinkbike: Rim Width, Angle Headsets, and Carbon Cranks
I'm running two bikes with Syntace MX 35 wheels. They are super lightweight and will get out of true if you don't check for tension a trueness after the first 200 kms. After that, mine have remained straight and tight. Some tires are hard to mount up tubeless, but most air up easily with a Gorilla tape setup. The rim will ding if you are running low pressure and smack rocks, but If you prefer aluminum and want both wide and lightweight, they are a good choice. RC

Hey RC, If you, or anyone is reading this in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area, Charlie Kelly will be doing a book signing this Sunday, Oct. 19th at Orange 20 Bikes on Melrose Ave at Heliotrope at 3:30pm. Charlie's old partner in the first mountain bike company in the world, Gary Fisher, will be on hand to support. I will be screening Klunkerz after the signing. We'll have (good) beer and maybe a cool DJ spinning, too! We are working hard to make this a very special event. I look forward to seeing Charlie in SoCal and I hope to see some of you there! ‪

I am looking for advice on the best AM 6" travel frame. I ride a medium Covert, and need a large, however there are no used late model frames for sale right now. I was looking at the Yeti SB66, and now I want to open up to other brands. Intense, Pivot, Banshee, what would YOU choose today??

Now THAT Was a Bike: Sweetheart Cycles Moto Cruiser
The thumb shifters look exactly like later model Suntours, but in fact, I was told by the restorer, that they are from the French company, Simplex. Pretty rare stuff.
