Definitely interested to see how he performs on 650b. Not sure I can recall anyone switching between 650b and 29 in either direction on EWS so should offer an insight on how much/ little the wheel size really matters to these racers

1 Question - How Long, Low And Slack Can We Go?
I think there's a risk of misdiagnosing the cause of a light front end. CS length needs to increase as the front centre lengthens. The trend for short CS ignores this and places the rider behind the centre line of the bike.

1 Question - How Long, Low And Slack Can We Go?
Who wants to ride a bike with 2" of spacers plus high riser bars. Seems reasonable enough to me that if you're in the market for an XL bike, the stack, SA and stays are dimensioned accordingly

Scott Genius LT 700 Tuned Plus - Review
Yeah, it's full of these underpaid MTB fanatics running a massive joined up corporate super conspiracy to force us to hold on to our kit for longer because it's worthless to sell and the next thing you buy will be worthless in 12 months too. Or maybe its just an industry full of people who haven't a clue about long term industrial planning and individually jump from one thing to another desperately trying to keep up with the Joneses. And the fact customers are getting repeatedly screwed over is just an accidental by-product of this.

Man.. love PB for being such a conspiracy nut hideout. 650b was a consumer-lead trend. Don't believe me? Go and read through Derby's posts on MTBR Ibis forums from years ago, as an example. There were various people ghetto converting their 26" bikes to 650b. It is not a coincidence that 650b turned up after 29". If anything it was the industry's strong hyping of 29" which people rejected but made some evaluate the possibility for incremental improvements to the 26" platform without such distinct bus-like handling of 29". Similarly as ratedgg13 notes, fat and fat plus have been around for quite a long time, with Surley leading the development of plus.. hardly a linchpin in MTB corporata. But as some aspects of MTB matures, we start to look at other areas.. it is natural evolution. To my mind I am very open to plus bikes. I ride for fun, not to win races. I don't care if I don't see a plus bike in EWS. More likely to care if I see Sam Reynolds, Wilkins, Brendog, Rat and others bumming about the woods on one in their off season, which more or less equates to my year-round, minus the big air. By all accounts they are quite fun, though there's still some doubt for me about whether they can be pushed or can really only be ridden to 8/10ths.

Fox Racing Shox Acquires Marzocchi
If the PR is true, fair play to Fox They are buying in to a mixed bag for sure, with plenty of risks as much a upside and I'm guessing a workforce is included. If some people get to keep their jobs as an outcome, then that's great
