Trek's Prototype DH Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2016
Trek had a proto 29er DH years agos: http://www.bikerumor.com/2011/02/23/spy-shots-trek-29er-downhill-mountain-bike-prototype/ And Intense messed around with the 2951 before making a 650b 951: http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/Intense-2951-29er-DH-Bike,950/2951-next-to-a-951-29er-vs-26er,2940/sspomer,2

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
@WAKIdesigns: It is without a doubt the best bike I've ever had! Super stable but still agile, insane amount of traction but with a small shift in weight I'm still able to make the tightest turns! Going back to a normal bike just feels sketchy! haha. Since the lifts are still working for another week around here I have yet to fully test it's climbing capabilities. I got the large size and put on a mondraker 10mm stem and the cockpit feels perfect, enough room to breath but without feeling too stretched out. Putting the bike on the lifts is however a tad tricky with my wheelbase of 1340mm! I highly recommend it and hope the bike industry will move ASAP to longer bikes! I can imagine a +1300mm wheelbase, 63º headangle, 445mm chainstay Specialized Enduro coming out in 5 years and it will be an insanely capable bike!

Having recently got a Pole Evolink 176 with 460mm chainstays I can state that short chainstays are overrated.

2017 Whyte Bikes USA Lineup
74.3º seatangle is NOT steep nor is 66º headangle slack on a 160mm bike nowadays. Don't know why many bike brands put slacker seatangles on the larger frames e.g. the Whyte G160 small has a 74.7º 0.4º steeper than the L. I do like the long reach on the bikes though.

Rocky Mountain's 2017 Slayer - First Ride
@dualsuspensiondave: Really? That isn't my experience at all. On rough terrain especially rocky terrain I find they work(ed) great. You are able to plow right through stuff which you'd struggle with a 2.35 tire. Heck I remember the brocklyn Machine Works guys raving about those tires. They pushed the 3.0s gazzaloddis so hard they managed to rip knobs off them. And those were some hard durometer tires!!!

Rocky Mountain's 2017 Slayer - First Ride
@dualsuspensiondave: They only failed because of the weight! 1600g tires are only good at going DH at speed! Changing direction, re-accelerating and braking with super heavy tires isn't great. Plus back then rims were 700-1000g each! A modern 500g 40mm aluminium rim or 400g carbon rim with a 800-1000g tire will work way better.

Rocky Mountain's 2017 Slayer - First Ride
Ah come on no one is going to comment on the 26+ tires coming to you in the not so distant future!!! I for one look forward to them! Sub 1000g 3.0 tires with decent tread hell yeah!

EWS Race Tech: Jared Graves' New Specialized Tires
@Kyle201: it is a great tire but a tad heavy. More brands should make a lighter 26+ tire with serious tread (other than surly).
