Opinion: Do We Need Size-Specific Chainstays?
Tall skinny guy here. I figured this out years ago. Appropriate chainstay length has more to do with weight than it does height. I'm now on a 435mm rear center with around 865mm front center. If I could make it a 430mm rear center, i would.

Video: Anneke Beerten's Course Preview for the 2024 Paris Olympics XCO Test Event
Honestly, riding this on a motorized pedal-less throttle electric bike would have been a better look. The ebike just makes it seem like she's incapable of casually riding an XC course, or can't hang with her athlete friend. Than again, the Olympics has always been poor optics for the 'sport'

Tested: Do Short Cranks Work For Tall Riders?
193cm... Shortest I've tried is 170, also settled on 180. Mostly to reduce saddle height, but also for sustained climbs. It looks like Tweed Valley's tallest climb is 1000m or so, and I'm guessing long climbs aren't ride of choice for Cathro. Horses for courses, also why ya'll pedaling through chunk anyway... just hold the cranks level & keep your heels low, get with the program.

First Ride: 2024 Rocky Mountain Slayer
@Blownoutrides: honestly, I subscribe to the idea that it takes months (not weeks) to figure out how to ride any bike on the limit The bar to saddle height ratio is useless imo. Set the raised saddle position for on-saddle pedaling efficiency, and set bar position for off-saddle maneuverability. It's not complicated, but there's no magic #, it requires time and feel. This is what makes these quiver killers so fascinating, a poor setup can kill the climbing ability and leave you with just a limited DH rig.

First Ride: 2024 Rocky Mountain Slayer
@mikekazimer: 6'4 here. 150mm HT length please, but I only say this as it happens to be the max supported by most dual crowns. Mfgs should take a page from the XXL SC megatower, with a stack of around 670, I can only just get the cockpit high enough without excessive risers and spacers. The struggle is real
