 I liked what he said about the new geometry stuff etc. Pretty dang cool interview. This guy just is transparent and does none of the marketing speak at all. Cool look into the bike world. Hard not to like the guy.

 At what time is he talking geo?

 Love the guy, but "Spread it out like not long wise, but height wise" just sounds like he wants a dirt jumper mountain bike hybrid. Odd, but interesting.
  • + 8
 Well said, So refreshing to here someone by real about bike size and wheels etc, he doesn’t have his head up the industry marketing a## , take note PB
  • + 6
 @Soilsledding: Sort of. He talked about how when he rides a shorter bike because its more fun to pop-off everything and link stuff together, that he needs the higher rise for it to work out fit wise. That's pretty common (I'm a bit taller than him).

It was about the middle where he talked about bikes. He was asked about the modded C-Dale that he built up. He highlighted that he felt like everything new is long and low 29er and that its great for going fast and safely going down the trail but it just irons the trail out. He indicated that he really likes to squeeze a lot of fun out of the trails and boost off of everything and that having a shorter bike with 27.5 allows him to do that much better.

FWIW I ride an XL 29er with Fox 36. Its not super long but its not short either. I'd say I'm not biased.
  • + 5
 @Svinyard: I think a lot of people could have more fun on a trail bike if the sizing was more similar to a downhill bike. Super slack with a relatively long WB, but without a big ole reach making a bit harder to toss around
  • + 6
 Next year the industry will be pushing 29 front 27 rear, call them 97ers or something and praising it as the holy trail grail. The year after that it will be 27 hype all over again or dare I say 27 front 26 rear bikes.

  • + 1
 @Svinyard: ditto here. Just ordered the Deity high side 760s 50mm on Sunday bc i feel that a higher riding position won’t tire me out as much and will give me a more playful ride on the trail. I’m 6’ on a large insurgent but never felt like the position was right. I wonder if it’s due to having a BMX background. Anybody else feeling that?
  • + 1
 @Deanosuar: totally felling it man! Same here, race inc, JMCs, PKs, quads, kuwaharas..and on and on. Six foot and always ride a high rise bar and short-ish stem. Def feel it from the bmx days...and my hammered back from 1/2 century of ridiculous antics.

 @kleinblake: I think it depends on the terrain you ride. Trail riding near home (the stuff I ride every week) is a lot of ups and downs and flats in between. Longest continuous climb is probably 2 miles. An 18 mile ride might be 3000 feet of elevation but it is spread out over three or 4 major climbs with many small climbs in between. That is matched by 3 or 4 long steeper descents. with much flatter stuff in between. This is with lots of trees and rocks, rocks, rocks. Longer and slacker with a steep seat angel will make the climbs acceptable, but probably not as fun as they are on the trail bike, nor is it going to advantage of the pedally, poppy bits, and the descents aren't long enough or steep enough to make it shine enough to outway its deficiencies. My last hard tail (at a 70 degree head tube and very short wheelbase and chainstays) outshone by current full suspension trail bike (with a fairly conservative 67 degree head-angel) on the climbs by quite a bit. But the trail bike (set up 140f-160r) just blows it away on the descents enough to make it worth it to me to adapt to its less than perfect climbing.

My DH rig is basically the same wheelbase and reach as my trail bike (DH is 26 and trail is 27.5) but is slack and low in comparison. What I've noticed is it is a brutally faster in anything pointed downhill, but, it is also harder to get around corners that are very tight. I'm talking a very hard left turn that has to hit a line precisely that is going over large rocks while grazing a tree. The trail bike is more likely to get thrown off by the rocks, but if I'm anywhere close I can make that corner. Whereas the DH is likely to stay on line but, man, I better be perfect on cornering, or I'm going to be f*cked.

But my trail bike is 10+ pounds lighter than my DH, so a lot of the issue is just that I'm worried about the fragility (even though I've slid into a tree at 18 mph cracking the tree with my bottom bracket (but not the bottom bracket) because the impacts to the bike just feel terrible when I go into a rock garden full speed. But then climbing on my DH bike sucks. Because it weighs 10 pounds more, but also because it is not geared at all for climbing. But when I've climbed steep smooth roads with it, it has done fine (except for the weight) so maybe your right.

But I also don't have a dropper on my DH. so a seated ride is similar to BMX. It's like I'm riding a very long, heavy, weirdly proportioned BMX, but somehow when I'm out riding on the street testing my shifting or whatever (like I ever shift when I'm actually on track), I still feel like I'm some badass dude ride his super cool bike, even though I'm 47 riding in a pretty nice neighborhood and know my neighbors are thinking "there goes the weirdo" But is just feel so good. Riding a very long, low slack bike around the neighborhood. pretty slowly. since there aren't any steep hills around here and pedalling to go fast on that bike just makes me look silly.

Anyway. I think your right.

 @RollinFoSho: DH already opened up the rules to allow for a mixed wheel set so it could be a fun thing to watch. I know a couple people in Southern California that have built up a mixed wheel set and really liked it. 1 was an old and trusty mid 2000s 27.5/26 Turner 5-spot and the other guy is a mechanic. He built a couple Giant and SC bikes with 29/27.5.
A push by the industry for a mixed wheel set will make Foes quite happy since they've had their Mixer trail and Enduro bikes around for a few years now. I'm curious to try 1 out.
  • + 1
 @sigalphablott: I have a Geometron running 160mm fork (29") with 155mm rear (27.5") for the steeps and in SC, Whistler and lift access places. I couldn't be happier. Not a dirt jumper so a short, high front end bike is not my jam for what I ride most. The benefits of 29" with the feeling of a 27.5". I've done a bunch of back to back and love it for a trail application. It makes a big trail bike nimble and efficient.

 @bonkywonky: well I understood 90 percent of it too, we're just taking a piss since that is with supposedly speaking the same language.

Also the fact that the subtitles would often just stop when Josh was speaking and even get the interviewers words wrong, which made it harder to understand since I was hearing and reading different words.

 I am from the N of England but have lived in the States for 20+ years. I can actually understand him very well. I actually lived 10 mins from where Burgtec is located. I think its the expressions that lose people. The accent is very broad but not that bad.

 I get that this has been a well told joke and in the past would agree sometimes he was hard to understand but would say he was pretty clearly spoken in this interview and I had no challenges understanding. I also, like @Svinyard says below, really like his transparency and straight up nature. It comes across as honest. He's a guy I'm happy to support to continue to watch ride. I'm glad the sport has guys like Josh- I'm a fan. Thanks Josh and well done!

He's since spoken to Claudio and its water under the bridge.

 Broke his ankle and was never the same when it came to calculating risk vs reward.

Hates the UCI because of... Weed?

No longer with Santa Cruz because he was (more or less) ignored once he quit racing.

Cannondale is a 3 year deal, he took it to help the next generation out. He doesn't need the money.

He thinks Gwin is a waste of money.

He doesn't seem to hold a grudge, usually.

Long is fast, short is fun. Downhill, enduro and then gibbing.

 Awesome stuff!!
As an old git who grew up joe kid on a BMX then MTB in the 80's, got 'serious' an startted XC racing. Burnt out an back to BMX untill I got so old it hurt So back on MTB when I discovered 4X.A good while at that then burnt out on racing for the second time. An now back to dicking about in the woods.

I wish Josh an the 50-01 lads all the best in being serious about having fun an making a living out of it. Coming from all those years of punk rock BMX, I've thought this is something that MTB was missing but, has been brewing for a while. Now I think is gonna be massive now the marketing bods have got hold of it. A second/new wave of freeride. Riders getting props an making £$£$ out of stuff that isn't race results.

Ultimatly it can only be good for the sport as a whole, as it will open more styles of riding to more kids that may not have access to huge mountain ranges or sponsor me race programs. They can just pick up they bike an go fckng ride it an have FUN

Salute to Josh, 50-01 an any one else that gets it

 That was a fantastic interview. Rarely do you hear that level of candor and Ratboy just seems really happy and has settled into a life where he's cool with himself and others. He didn't try to shift blame to others when he thought it was his own fault and didn't step away from calling out others when it was. I almost never watch interview videos on here, but I started to see what everyone was talking about with the accent and ended up watching the whole hour long thing. That was really fun. And jokes aside, I'm American and had no trouble understanding him.

  • + 2
 One of the Best MTB interviews to date!!! Such Real-ness haha, Touched on just about everything in the cycling world! One thing I would say is maybe XC is like the new Road bike scene converging into mtb.. Maybe we are seeing more XC views than DH now because more hard core Road bikers are now getting their feet wet in XC cycling!? just my 1.5 cents
  • + 3
 The closest I've got to the bottom of it is that is: 1. XC now gets two bites of the cherry with the addition of short track alongside the main race each weekend, compared to one broadcast of the downhill (this is probably going to change next year though as there is talk of qualifying for the downhill being broadcast). And 2. Brazil has been a massive growth audience for XC after the 2016 games and the success of Henrique Avancini.
  • + 1
 @jamessmurthwaite: I think it was the Martin Whiteley podcast on vital where he said it is because they combined the figures of 2 days viewing vs 1. I seem to remember that DH still had the most views of any 1 day and that 2019 they would have qualifications live so DH would get 2 days coverage as well.

 I have been in the mt bike scene since the Mt. Hood triangle bar days, and that was after a lifetime of bmx and dirt bikes.
I have seen and watched every wave of great riders and racers come up and go through the ranks. Cannondale has had many many serious top level racers and riders and for them to “hang their hat” on JB speaks volumes. Rat is a fantastic rider, a previously driven and focused racer and I am glad to see him forging another chapter in the elite level riding scene.
He drives the point home that most all of us hold dearly in our hearts, even if we don’t admit it, the smile per mile just can’t be matched at any level. Josh super stoked for you and what you have done for your lads and where you are taking this with the new crew and bikes. I see you as one of the “Tinker” types that Cannondale will have around for long time. Not to stereotype at all, but someone that has mad skills and has fun all the time like Cedric used to, that box is checked.
I look forward to you winding up in Connecticut for some engineering rides at the barn and hopefully I will be able to be there. I still have some Cannondale contacts from 20 plus years ago. I am just building up a new jekyll and get more amped with every recent riding or interview clip with you or the crew in it. You are too laid back and humble to accept this, but you are living and making a legacy of what is to come within the industry. Keep on having fun with the boys and rip that shit up!

 Had to be one of the best things I’ve ever seen in PB. More of this PB please. This is a great way for the general fan to get to know more of the people we follow. Bryceland’s candor would be a hard act to follow though. He truly is a guy comfortable in his own skin. What a great ambassador for the sport, and a good example for young people showing them to just have faith in being honest with yourself. What a really likable guy.

And mad respect for the no-BS attitude towards trends, industry, sponsors, pro competition, setting rumours straight etc. Glad he's in a strong position to be honest and open like that.

 Ffs if you speak english fluently and can’t understand this interview something is wrong, either unable to decipher a slight accent or jealous that he’s doing what he wants and have to find something to knock. Either way I feel for you but comments about his accent are getting super old
