Video: Pivot Launches Les Fat 2 with "Ed Gets Fat Part 2"
@tsn73: The Nomad 3 also isn't a hardtail designed to ride xc/trail on, a large 27.5+ Santa Cruz chameleon has a 456mm reach as a comparison with something more in the same category. It seems like a lot of fatbikes are really quite short in the top tube, possibly for a more upright touring-style position on the bike? I honestly don't know though.

Selling my wife's old bike, still runs really well only selling as I built a new 29er for her. Frame size is a large but it's more like a modern medium due to changes in geometry over the years, geometry chart -> https://www.santacruzbicycles.com/files/nickel.1_geometry.pdf Main pivots were replaced a few years ago, the rest of the pivot kit will come with the bike, there is no movement or creaking currently though. There is a minor amount of cable rub on the swingarm and 2 small paint chips above the rear derailleur (each chip is roughly 7mm across), no dents, cracks or major issues. 140mm Fox float fork, 140mm rear travel with a fox rp23 shock, both running well and serviced not long before we built up my wife's new bike, no leaks, no oil or scratches on stanchions, lockout and all adjustments work well. Thomson stem and post, carbon easton bars, bontrager saddle, race face grips, all with no issues/scratches/damage etc. DT wheels (not setup tubeless, rear has a few small dings but nothing major), Specialized butcher/purgatory 26x2.3 tires with plenty of tread left and no rips/tears/holes etc. Freshly bled Avid elixir cr brakes, new pads in front, plenty of pad still in the rear 2x10 XT shifting (really good gear range for smaller legs), new chain and BB, chainrings and cassette have plenty of miles left on them. Solid bike for a solid price, would work well as a first mtb for a teenager or for someone getting into MTBing on a budget.

Video Highlights: Air DH - Crankworx Whistler 2018
For such a fast race there seemed to be very little footage of the riders actually going fast. So much slo-mo of scrubs and whips, which, while making for a sick edit, don't really show how fast or wild the riders really are going.

Forbidden Bike Company's High Pivot Trail Bike - Crankworx Whistler 2018
By moving where the chain on the idler sits relative to the single pivot you can tweak the antisquat values. I believe there has been some of the DH bike manufacturers playing around with idler positions for different WC DH tracks, this is mostly anti-squat tweaking.

5 Hardtails With Dropper Posts - Albstadt World Cup XC
A lightweight carbon chain guide weighs a couple of grams. A dropped chain can lose you many spots in a tight race. It's a risk vs reward kinda thing.

Everything You Need to Know About Norco's New DH Bike
This is the second time in as many days as I've seen this posted on PinkBike. Unless I'm missing something their head quarters are in Port Coquitlam. If this is done intentionally to try and make it seem like they are on the North Shore then it seems a bit poor for something so easily proved to be incorrect.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
It does seem a bit strange, slacker headtube == more trail, bigger wheel == more trail, bigger offset == less trail? If you're running big wheels and slack headtubes for stability at speed why not go all the way and run a shorter offset?
