Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
@KNOLLYBIKES: Thanks for taking the time to reply and for explaining the design process. If it was tyre clearance you were aiming for then that does make a lot of sense and as i said harmonising standards across the range is a big plus. The idea of a short travel 29er with aggressive geometry, plenty of mud clearance and the ability to run wide tyres is very appealing to me as a UK rider! When the Fugitive 29er is available in the UK i will be arranging a demo as it sounds like the perfect bike for me and the trails i ride!

Knolly Moves Entire Lineup to 157mm Spacing
As an actual Engineer, rather than an armchair one (albeit a Civil Engineer), I definitely see the manufacturing benefit of harmonising standards across different models. For big hitting enduro or park bikes it definitely makes sense to share DH wheelset standards, however, for a 120mm travel 29er do you really need the supposed extra strength / stiffness? I'd like to ride this new setup to see what it feels like, to see if the average rider can really tell the difference. I'm not convinced by the maths though, I just can't see how a frame designed to take a 3.2" tyre, with a hub 7mm wider either side but still running a 73mm BB shell only results in an increase of 1.5mm width on the chainstay by your foot...

'Processing' the French Alps with Big Mountain Descents
We did a week in Tignes this summer and it's absolutely brilliant, very exposed as most of the trails are above the tree line but they have worked very hard on the park in the last few years and it is great fun to ride there. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather which definitely helped, the trails seemed to be pretty much empty too which was nice. Oh and yes, the lifts are free, there are plenty of them and they flow very well. It's well worth a trip!

Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
Wheel building is a skill i would like to learn, I have always relied on places like CRC or Merlin to build my wheels. After my last set from Merlin i will be giving it a go myself next time, the rear kept going out of true (Stans Flow mk3's on Hope Pro 4's), i took it to a friend who knows his stuff and he told me the the spoke tensions were all out and the wheel had been dished by 10mm. After he sorted the rear (and found the front was the same) the wheels have been superb so i will be investing in a truing stand and having a practice myself now.
