Field Test: 2021 Specialized Stumpjumper - The Do It All 'Er
@GlassGuy: your post made me realize the only frames I haven't broken were actually carbon. I've got some steel and aluminum skeletons in my closet, but no carbon. Despite that, my last trail bike was steel and it's replacement is aluminum, because no wanted to avoid carbon.... I haven't owned a Ti frame, so I haven't broken one of those either.

Field Test: 2021 Ibis Mojo 4 - The Trail Rider's Trail Bike
@Solorider13: Not sure why you're getting hate for this, but the two syringe method applied to Shimano mtb brakes gets fantastic results. I just built a bike with 7120s, rear brake had the wonderful wandering bite point. A thorough dual syringe bleed and it's rock solid. Shimano road brakes are different, and the funnel method works better, even if it's a hassle.

9 Kits for Plus Size Mountain Bikers - Women’s Edition
Not sure if I'm here early or the comments already all got bikes, but as a former plus sized/clyde dude, finding gear was always a hassle. Good to see some guides out there for more people. The stuff you wanted didn't come in your size, figuring out your size was a hassle, the stuff you could find sometimes sucked. I was 6ft 270, now I'm 6ft 195, actually 197 the day after Thanksgiving. I still have trouble with gloves and shoes for my stupid oversized appendages. And, a commonly repeated comment... Get some more tester diversity. The Enduro/trail shootout and the similar tests are great, but when both riders are 25% lighter than you and within na few pounds of each other... Loses some of its luster. I've never met a bike part that was too stiff, aside from a big moto bar, and my suspension tuning and impressions will always be colored by the 40 pounds I've got on the Mike's. Bigger riders even more so, and I have to wander what the 5ft 105lb women are thinking as they read along, too.

Field Test: 2021 Salsa Blackthorn - Purple Singletrack Eater
The frame is priced for the faithful. They position it that way to push most folks to completes. The way of the world, more so every year for almost 10 years.

Field Test: 2021 Salsa Blackthorn - Purple Singletrack Eater
I wouldn't say Salsa is underrated. For the pink bike audience, they haven't really had much to offer, and their previous trail bikes have always been XC/Marathon, conservative geo bikes that are great at what they're designed for. Their gravel/bike packing/touring line up is fantastic. It's nice to see them with a decent aggressive trail offering, though...I think it's a cool bike.

Seat Height vs. Effective Seat Tube Angle 600mm = 77.43 ° 700mm = 76.23 ° 800mm = 75.33 ° From their site. The Riot had an amazing geo page with effective seat angles and ETT for each size at a variety of seat heights back in the day, Canfield doesn't mess around with this stuff.
