 Tiny woman on 29 + huge man on 650b? World gone mad or is it my eyes?

Also, glad to hear that GT is completely designed. A definite competitive advantage.

 If you rode their bikes two years ago in the bike park, you would 100% know they were only partially designed. Man, they were not good. Hopefully, they got it right this time.

 @rrolly: Now you mention it, I couldn't get the seat low enough on the Sanction I rented 2 years ago, because it would have hit the shock. Size S bikes were sold with a 100 mm dropper, possibly becasue of this. Made it almost unrideable.

 @BenPea: For us it was that the bike felt clumsy and unbalanced. It was really odd. No hate on GT, though. I really hope they've got it dialed now.

 Google "pinkbike randy" and read the reddit article on it.

 Also, reverend's post more or less references the pinkbike Randy and attributes to him characteristics of the Trailerpark Boys character, Randy, who is always shirtless and loves cheeseburgers. Your welcome.
