Normally they start a new ‘standard’ to rock the apple cart!

Review: The Revel Rascal V2 is a Live Wire Trail Bike
“somewhere in between an overbuilt cross-country machine and a lightweight enduro steed you’ll find”… A trail bike :D I do feel that bikes have plateaued with much of the geometry, most bikes are very good angles wise these days and the harder part is finding the right sizing to allow the rider to integrate perfectly. We need to step away from full carbon frames and get fully back on board with aluminium, there’s clearly no weight saving these days, and if you’re building a bruiser DH bike a little heft is your friend.

Pinkbike Poll: What Are Your Must-Have Features On a New Mountain Bike?
@vinay: on smooth ground the smaller the wheel the greater the gain in acceleration from a ‘pump’, this is purely because of wheel mass and inertia, specifically the smaller the wheel the smaller the mass and thus easier to accelerate. As soon as the ground is not smooth however it’s a trade off between roughness of ground and mass, where a larger diameter wheel will over come (ignore) an obstruction that a smaller wheel may get stalled on.

Thought Experiment: How Good Could e-Bikes Get?
How about all this e-bike crap just F’s off. Yes batteries are useful and necessary but we don’t have to plunder the world to power pointless stuff.

Field Test Review: 2024 Nicolai Nucleon 16 Supre - The Silent Plow
@bigtim: you’re pretty damn close to me then, I run 475/480 reach on a typical 29er enduro stack height frame (620), 30mm of stackers and 50mm bars, I like my bikes agile/sporty. Ultimately wether I go shorter or longer on the bike I always run a Ben Cathro grip height of circa 1120. I get you with the bar roll, but I love riser bars as it enables good height without an overly ‘reachy’ bike, depends what ppl ride and preference but I don’t like being miles behind the front axle what with 63HA!

@GTscoob: I would say you potentially need a longer bike then, this will in turn require a higher stack/bar height, which on the whole would give you more room to manoeuvre/weight the bike. How tall are you and big Tim? I’m 6’ 4”.

@haen: This is actually a really good rule of thumb, I always start my setup from here.

Cotic Launch Jeht Gen2 Trail Bike
@waltworks: Yeh you definitely need to watch your frame and component pairing IME, if you have a stiff frame, compliant wheels like Mavic’s are great, like wise if you have a soft frame then carbon wheels are good.
