Nah, Trek pretty generic, geo still based off size Medium too. Much rather get a better bike (for me) from Norco or Forbidden for around $7K CAD. LAST bikes look like a cool option tho.

What are you going on about? I was answering Wale.

The reason that one is so expensive is that it’s the lightest Enduro frame in the world. The alu frames are nearly identical, just heavier, and are in line with most other bikes

Their alu frames are really light too, my Coal is on par with most high end carbon frames when it comes to weight, and it's still perfectly fine after many years of hard use, including bike parks shenanigans and some racing.
Really want to try the new Coal with mullet or Tarvo, but just dumped too much money into my old one, and it's quite hard to justify the cost of changing wheel size after just getting a new fork and Zipp wheels in 27.5 lol

Yeah right! The alu frames are 2.9kg. I was pretty sure it was the coal was going to be my new bike but they’re sold out until next year and the new stumpy evo has just come out

Always loved those frames. Would love to try a gearbox driven bike one day but hard to get here. How’s it ride with that dope pistachio 38?!

still waiting for you to post a medium or large frame

The ERA Fork is insanely good. Hard to describe it really. It stays high in the travel and has really good small bump compliance. It has the same "memory foam" magic carpet feel as the Storia. I am just running it on recommended settings right now but will probably take a few PSI out of the high pressure chamber because I was not able to get full travel. Every person I have talked to that has tried one has said it is the best fork they have ever ridden and many of them are pretty tough critics.

It damn well should be at $1600.

It'll be interesting if the ERA makes any dent in the "stanchion size = stiffness" wars.

Not a huge difference in cost over a fox 38 and if it can keep moving without having any binding issues it would probably do well.
