@islandforlife: Well true but I thought that is what the bartlett is for if he needed a longer travel fork?

A 29er fork usually has a longer a2c then the corresponding 27.5 fork. Bomber z1 29er Axle to Crown: 537.1 (130mm), 547.1 (140mm), 557.1mm (150mm), 567.1mm (160mm), 577.1mm (170mm) 27.5 Axle to Crown: 539,1mm (150mm), 549,1mm (160mm), 559,1mm (170mm), 569,1mm (180mm) Lyrik 27.5 Axle To Crown: 542mm (150mm), 552mm (160mm), 562mm (170mm), 572mm (180mm) Yari 29 Axle To Crown: 561mm (150mm), 571mm (160mm), 581mm (170mm), 591mm (180mm) You can see that the given measurements that even a shorter travel 29er fork has a longer a2c measurement. He probably didnt want to jack up the bike too much and ruin his geo, especially if you consider that the 29er wheels will probably add to that. That's my guess anyway.

Tech Randoms Round 2 - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
@S851: It's the servo-wave, the xtr race has none. The trail ones has it but less in-your-face like it is on the saints and xt. You can actually feel the initial notch of the servo-wave when the pads touches the rotor followed by the full-powered bite of the brakes when you pull further.

@ScottB-408: i second this, specifically the m985 race levers. My only one complain is that the xtr levers oxidizes to black on mine.

Marin Releases the 2019 Mount Vision
I like it. It looks deliciously weird to me. I suspect without the space to mount a bottle, it would have looked slicker but I appreciate having the mount. Would love to be able to demo this.

I know right? I somehow, like the look of skinny steel tubes with fat wheels. Since I don't have an engineering background, is that the best position for the shock mount? Looks a bit out of sort on the bike.
