Yeti SB5c - Review
slodown, you realize this frame is in a new wheelsize, abandoning the whole "26 holdout" image yeti was trying to push. it's also all over the first page of every MTB website...kind of "marketing the shirt out of it". There also isn't a huge amount of breakthrough here. Just another way of accomplishing something that's marginally better, at a huge weight and complexity price.

http://www.bikerumor.com/2014/07/06/new-bmc-speedfox-proves-29er-wheels-can-still-make-a-rippin-trail-bike/ yep. It's the xt that's around 28lb for alloy. Deore is 30.

2015 BMC Speedfox: Lightweight Mid-Travel Trailbike
Not a dropout, a shimano derailleur direct mount. The dropout is right in the corner of the triangle.

2015 BMC Speedfox: Lightweight Mid-Travel Trailbike
4.78lbs for the carbon carbon frame according to bike rumor. 28 some odd lbs for the deore alloy complete.

BMC Trailfox TF01 - Review
Why would I want the bikes that you would rather have? All of those are kinematically inferior to either the BMC or Enduro. The nomad is rad, but I don't want a lift-only bike (or a bike that handles so poorly I cry on the way up), the cannondales have proprietary non-replaceable shocks, the GT is using suspension designs from 1999, and the tracer has a leverage curve better left in 1999. Plus, the whole friggin' point is that there are two aggressive 29ers on the market, and 27.5 doesn't suit my needs.

BMC Trailfox TF01 - Review
Interesting read. I was debating between the low-end BMC TF03 and the Spec Enduro Comp, but the enduro won with the pike and the rest of the component spec. I love the short head tube on this bike. One thing to note- reviewing the kinematics over on Linkage blog shows a very efficient and well designed bike, but he comments that based on the linkage it's unlikely that the bike is getting 150mm of travel, and is more likely to see something like 140. That might explain the stiffness and lack of plush feel.
