THIS is the way. Seeing old bikes on the trail is the GOAT.

People get so stoked when I am out on my Cove Stiffee, it is part of the reason I ride it. Haha

Anyone got a line on a Large Big Al?

Been wanting to give one a build-up for a while. Looking like frame-only options are limited to XL’s.

For sizing, I just bought mine and posted a few pages back. I am 5'11" and have a 32" inseam and the large Big Al is perfect with a 180mm dropper fully inserted. I did set up the bike with a 40mm stem which has been great, I am going to try the same stem in a 50mm length to be sure of the sizing. Oh, and 170mm cranks are perfect as well.

Yeah I am definitely wanting size Large Im right in that range. Saw yours been on my mind a while but Hardtail Parties review alleviated any concerns of harshness I had.

Yup, was following Hardtail Party too before I bought. Had a new Nukeproof Scoot and the Big All in my cart. Watched all the reviews and used a bit of judgment. I have never had a modern hardtail before. I am a long-time modern Enduro bike lover. And I am blown away by the Big Al. It has put the biggest smile on my face and brought a ton of joy back to riding. I love the modern hardtail.

Awesome! So I have had several... many several in-fact but for the most part all steel. Definitely interested in an alloy build for a lighter one and to just get a feel for material differences. The older cheapo alloy frames I’ve had were a bit harsh riding but it sounds like the Al has a very forgiving nature. Shave a couple lbs with nice pick up and dampening? Sounds good to me

Always wanted to convert my RSD Middlechild to single speed, and finally did for the winter months! Made a little video on the process if anyone else is looking to do the same.

Running singlespeed is cool.
Running around telling people you're running it isn't, generally.
