Staff Rides: Daniel Sapp's Yeti SB130
@danielsapp: Should ask MRP to send a progressive wound spring to test.

First Look: Mondraker's F-Podium Brings Forward Geometry to XC Racing
@Ian713: This isn't really worth discussing more but, "future proofed the seat tube with a 31.6mm diameter, which fits conventional dropper posts (along with internal routing)." Pretty precise, if someone reads that and decides to raise a stink about why don't XC bikes have internal routing for droppers they are not being rational.

@woofer2609: This is a problem in society and I guess it just rubbed me the wrong way. If something is not spelled out in incredibly clear language that can only be interpreted in one way someone comes along and jumps to a bunch of negative conclusions and rails on the product or the idea. Let's just trust that everyone isn't being assholes unless proven otherwise.

The article states that is has internal routing for a dropper. Why did you make this comment?

Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
@TucsonDon: Incorrect. A person's position on the bike is optimized by balancing the forces on the contact points for the terrain that they most often ride. The force of gravity on someone's leg helping them pedal is not a consideration.

@clink83: XC bikes climb well... Period. Not due to KOPS.

@Primoz: Your statement completely depends on where you ride. The only time I have felt awkward on a steep seat angle bike is while pedaling the mile or two to my local trails, on paved and gravel roads. Now I have not been on any of the extreme seat angle bikes but once on the trail having the steep SA for the silly steep grinds up is great. Then having that long reach so that my 6'4" self isn't having to do the tiniest adjustments to change the weight on the front v the rear wheel has felt great. It is as if bikes fit me for the first time since I started riding mountain bikes 29 years ago.

@Primoz: Reach is not a irrelevant number. It is irrelevant to how large the cockpit area is while seated but is the only length that matters when you are descending and not seated.

@clink83: Pro Road cyclists as well. This is because if you are quite fit and riding on more mild terrain, KOPS is a good place to start. For most of us that is not our reality and so KOPS is just a funny thing that helped people sound more educated when trying to sell road bikes.

@alexsin: Especially considering chainstays all being the same length on all the sizes is a remenent of steel manufacturers only making one or two sizes of chainstays and you are going to be drafting right so let's tuck those wheels under you as tight as possible.
