Women's Specialized Ruze Expert, Medium

$1000 USD
This bike is in excellent condition. It was ridden gently, has low total miles on it, and was well maintained. Stock specs are below. Upgrades include complete fork service w/new seals, under-bar style dropper lever (to replace the awkward over-the-bar stock lever), and fresh rear brake pads. Clear protection tape applied to frame and fork from new. The bike runs 27.5x3.0 tires for incredible confidence in rocky or uneven terrain. Setup tubeless. Needs nothing. A great first bike or a solid hardtail for the fleet.

Value Bike Field Test: Fezzari Cascade Peak - The Classic Trail Bike
@Mike-Jay: Exactly. It's pretty funny about how people go on and on about 5 mm on a geo chart making a massive difference (mildly by the reviewers and fervently in the comments) and then they have to eat crow when any testing is done. Don't mention the YT from the enduro field test last year!

Value Bike Field Test: Fezzari Cascade Peak - The Classic Trail Bike
@Wthomas: exactly! You can tell that all the reviewers tend to prefer enduro bikes and tend to use them as the measuring stick when evaluating any bike. "Good" geo and parts are what you would find on an enduro bike, even if it's a downcountry bike. In his defense, Levy tends to do a good job playing devil's advocate, but it seems he's just playing with them.

First Look: 2022 Pivot Shadowcat - A New 27.5" Trail Bike
@eugenux: Agreed with most of your comment, except one aspect I like is that I appreciate a better ETT/reach ratio on a trail bike. This ratio has gotten somewhat out of whack lately with longer and longer reaches combined with steeper seat angles decreasing top tube. On an enduro bike or for which and plummet riding, the more upright position is likely fine, but for a trail bike, I expect a lot more time in the saddle (YMMV), so a more optimal pedaling position with less weight on the hands is preferred for some riders.

First Look: 2022 Pivot Shadowcat - A New 27.5" Trail Bike
@justinfoil: Maybe, but the outgoing Mach 5.5 had ample clearance with a 2.6 tire in Boost 148 spacing and identical chainstay length. I really don't think the decision is design-based, since 157 clearly isn't needed on 27.5, even for a burly bike with short stays. I think it's more likely a marketing/perceived uptake choice. Very few companies have gone 157 on 27.5, so it certainly isn't too much of a challenge. The outlier here is the Mach 6. That choice seemed peculiar to me.

Perfect musical pairing at 4:38! The song playing is "hit the road Jack" as he plows his face into the dirt.
