Yeah I’m sure they are great frames but with a 72’ sta? I’d shop around.

I have cancelled the Dartmoor and got a Big Al instead, the sta seems to be more decent !
I am going to carry over some parts from my stumpjumper which is getting a refresh after two years.
Pike ultimate 130mm, Nukeproof Horizon, SLX groupset and brakes ...

You’ll love it, modern ally frames are pretty damn good, lightness with good geo tup

Who here rides a smaller size on their hardtail?

I'm 6'2" and ride a Dartmoor Hornet with 450mm reach, it's a size large. I still don't understand all the fuss about the long reach trend.

I have been riding my M/L root down almost exclusively for 5 months... it felt super long the first few rides but I adapted to it and it pretty much rocks... I should have my gen 2 Ti Switchback back on the trail soon which is conceders pretty short by todays standards so it will probably be a good comparison in longish versus shortish... I rode my 1st gen steel Switchback once since building up the Rootdown and did find myself enjoying the flickability but the Rootdown feels quite bit more stable all around.

Would love to try a medium Rootdown , I think I can take advantage of bot the M/L and the M at my average size.

I had a M/L Rootdown for a year, then tried a L.

Like both. M/L was definitely more playful but like Slaker I love the L planted DH stuff.

I come from BMX so everything feels HUGE to me. When I first started mountain biking I bought a 26" bike and was legitimately curious if there was a 24" option for adults LOL.

I'm 6'1" (185cm) and ride a 460mm reach 650b - it feels a little big sometimes - but you adjust to your new bikes over time.

Couple upgrades for the Titus.

175mm Eewings + WT chainring
31.6 One Up 240mm dropper (replaces shimmed 30.9)
We Are One Convert laced to i9 Hydra w/ steel Microspline driver (aka golden ticket)
Fresh TAG Metals pedals (large)

Retired components will be used for a steel HT single speed build
