Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Review
@g-42: For sure, the higher your seat is, the less effect the same amount of fore-aft adjustment has on effective STA. The way I got to that is using the arc length formula (S=r*theta). S is arc length, approximately equal to seat fore-aft adjustment. r is seat height above bb. Theta is effective seat tube angle, in radians. Divide fore-aft adjustment by seat height and that give you an angle in radians, which you convert to degrees. At 5'8", my seat is about 670 mm above my bb. 5 mm for-aft / 670 mm = 0.00746 radians = 0.43 degrees. For someone 6'4", I'd assume their seat would be about 4" above mine (half our height difference), or 100 mm. Using the same calculation as above, they'd get 0.37 degees for every 5 mm fore-aft.

A quick calculation shows that each 5 mm of fore-aft seat rail adjustment is about 0.4 degrees effective seat tube angle, so you can steepen things by about a degree or so by slamming the seat forward, depending how much rail you have to work with.

EWS Round One, Giant Toa Enduro: Results - Crankworx Rotorua 2017
@aushred: Ah, makes sense. Plus I checked out the live feed and things seems to be separating a bit more.

Times are really close. Rude is sitting in 39th but is only 1 min 8 seconds back. I'm not sure on the course for tomorrow, but it still seems like it's anyone's race, especially if there are some longer stages.

Does It Matter Where Your Bike Was Built? - Pinkbike Poll
There are many well-made frames overseas. That said, I expect reasonable prices.

Nice and cheap, but Boost can still kiss my a$$.

The Furious just launched, and this isn't it. I guess Commencal has a bit more up its sleeve.
