So while you guys love to crap all over PVD he was ahead of the curve on this style bike.

We are all more than aware of his creations (Beautiful they are too!) as he insists on keep pimping his wares in the manner that he does.

But Chromag has been doing long travel hardtails way longer than Peter has, just because he did it slacker than Chromag first doesn't mean he started a trend... Hell I'm pretty sure Sick Bicycles was doing it before him. PVD is a joke. I don't care how pretty his bikes are, the dude is trash.

I guess I ride to mellow of trails in Utah. I also feel that a hardtail looks sexier without a dropper. Ahem and no skin walls ...

Hahaha lol

No jumps on your smooth trails?

I love the look of a clean seat post, but any downs or jumps and better with a dropper, without a doubt. My trails are pretty chill and I drop that shit like it's hot.

I didn't think I needed one till 2015, 2 months later couldn't live without!

Im sure a lot of us shredded with a regular post for years or decades, I know if I was recreational riding and had an extended downhill section I slam it with the q/r, Even the xc races in the mountain states cup series would send you down the same downhill course as the downhill event except for 2 or 3 laps.I was very proficient at shredding that shit hanging ass over back tire with a saddle in my chest. Id rather never go back to that again though.

I ride to the trails that are closer to home for time saving and more pedaling less driving, so anything around me does not have a lot of jumps. Plenty of climbing do. On the other hand I already have a lever on the handlebar for my tilt adjust seatpost and another lever is just going to crowd things to much.

One of the few times when I interacted with him was on facebook, after he was publishing an article, I don't remember which... I posted a brief comment on the fact that there was a small mistake in the text about a bike produced by another company, an innocuous observation after which 99% of the people would have corrected the text. Well, he preferred to delete my comment and ban me! ... jeez, the guy has the social skills of a 5-year-old child and with the age he's getting worse ...

I don't even know what a tilt adjust seat post is. I ride to the trails too. Do you have a dropper on any of your bikes? Before I got one I wasn't convinced at all. I'm slow to adopt new stuff.
