Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
Thanks for shedding some light on this aspect of bike geometry. Being a taller rider the STA can make a large difference in climbing steeper terrain comfortably, shorter riders aren't as affected by this due to the shorter seat tube and rear center to front center ratio generally being more favorable.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
@NotNamed: This is a hardtail though, so you don't get the same rear suspension sag when climbing steeper terrain so maybe not as much of an issue? Would have to do some physics to work out if rear sag makes that much of a difference. Kudos for different CS length for different sizes, all bikes should have this.

Santa Cruz Chameleon commuter/pub bike

$400 CAD
Selling my Santa Cruz Chameleon franken-bike. It's a large 2008 Chameleon frame with a Gusset rigid fork and Mavic/Shimano 700c wheels. Condition is pretty good, bike runs well, some smaller scratches on the frame and heel rub on the non-drive chain stay (it is 10 years old after all). It was built up as a flat bar CX bike but then I bought a proper CX bike and haven't really ridden it since. It has a 1x9 Sram X0 drivetrain from 2008, freshly bled Elixr 5 hydro discs, shimano hubs with mavic rims, Thomson stem, Answer protaper bars (old, 25.4 50mm rise), 45c front tire, 33c rear (not much tread left on the rear) It's a pretty rad, solid round-town kinda bike, should fit riders from ~5'8" to ~6' (might want a longer stem for longer rides)

Giant TCX Advanced CX bike + race kit

$2000 CAD
I'm selling my upgraded 2015 Giant TCX Advanced full carbon CX bike (54.5cm size) + 2nd set of wheels, magnetic resistance rollers and clip on fenders It's been freshly serviced replacing pretty much every consumable that needed doing, it has not been ridden since the service. Service included (can prove with receipts if required): New headset New BB New cranks New chainring (raceface 42t narrow wide) New chain (cassette didn't need replacing) New jockey wheels New shift cable/housing Brake bleeds front and rear New bar tape Fresh tubeless setup Full strip down, clean and re-install of all parts Upgrades over stock include: Easton EA90 SL disc wheels (stock wheels are also included and have the stock rotors,a 11-40 XT cassette and indoor trainer tires on them) XT cassette (11-40) and derailleur (set up with a Wolf Tooth Tanpan to work with brifters) Raceface narrow wide 1x front ring with small chain guide Specialized power arc saddle Sram centerline rotors (better mud clearing and quieter sound when wet) The bike is pretty much a brand new bike with some small amount of frame/part wear. The non-drive chainstay has some foot rub, the drive side chainstay has some chips from chain slap, there are some small paint blemishes that are the result of shouldering and racing but nothing major other than what has been mentioned. It is a really nice CX race bike, sharp angles, good pedal clearance and a flat toptube for comfortable shouldering. It also has plenty of tire clearance for gravel tires, I've run a 45c WTB front and a 40c maxxis rear for summer gravel adventures. Geometry: Sale includes: Bike (as shown, no pedals) stock giant CXR-1 wheels with cassette, rotors, indoor trainer tires magnetic resistance rollers ( clip on fenders (older SKS race blade pro XL) garmin bar mount + cadence sensor

I recently put the longer dropouts on my banshee phantom, haven't timed it but it does feel more stable and definitely helped out climbing steep tech.

@TheLocalSpokesman: Funnily enough I think the chainstays themselves are actually the same across frame sizes to reduce SKUs and manufacturing costs but the lower main pivot changes location to change the rear center value (what most people call chainstay length). The front triangle already needs to be different across sizes so it's no extra cost but would seem to be better for handling and bike fit.

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.

Santa Cruz Nickel

$1000 CAD
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 -> 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.
