What stroke shock are you using to get 180mm travel?

Possibly the cascade link?

Got to 65mm stroke shock makes long travel mode

That’s right you have a titan. I truly wish it had longer reach, but that is mainly because I am super tall and these long reach numbers feel so good. NSMB had a great review on the titan and the reviewer called out the short reach for big guys on XL frames. Maybe they will update it some day.

Yep

@ chef; The titan and s5 enduro feel near identical in terms of reach, both setups im running 50mm stems and 50mm rise bars. The titan feels much more comfortable to my 6’3/long arms when seated imo, im not loving the stretched out position of the enduro. But yes an XXL titan would be cool, i know another guy who would probably like one.

I rode XXL spire around for 15min the other day. It was good. Really good. Probably too long for me though. It's long af wheelbase, caution makes wide turns kind feeling for me at 6'3"

XL spire huckleberry shows up this week. Swapping parts from my Prime XL over to it. Much excitement but the banshees are just such a good bike I feel.

Curious….. the challenge I deal with is I’m 6’7” so no bike is going to fit me well. And I’ve heard nothing but good things about the XXL spire and sentinel sizing for big dudes. Helps one of the founders is near my height.

I was just looking at the Sentinels' specs today. Very similar to my XXL Jeffsy. (I'm 6' 6")

I guess beer water has proven to stunt your growth....

Yeah im struggling a bit because the XL titan feels insanely balanced and well rounded to me and if it were to break i would just buy another one, but the enduro is pretty sick (especially with the super light roval control SL wheelset lmao). That huckleberry spire is lustworthy for sure though.

Yeah man. The sentinel and spire in aluminum are both high on the list and with transition having them in stock…. Makes it tough to say no but I’m holding off.

JUST DO IT! lol

Just for kicks and giggles, I actually did a custom Sentinel build on Fanatik's website......I think I went a little too high end, as it was over 10 large! Cool

For those of who who have ridden specialized and transition, would you say there is a big difference to they way they feel? I’m curious because they’ve got similar suspension designs and the only extensive experience I have with a Horst link bike was my 2018 Capra, which was a total couch. The 2020 enduro I rode for a week last year felt very similar, if slightly more refined.
