Review: The 155mm Revel Rail 29 Wants More Uphill
@Svinyard: what you want is a canfield with a coil - *slightly* longer/more aggro geo - but not crazy with shorter stays retained, a little burlier in alloy and coil seems to suit this platform really well, adding a degree of stability and CBF being naturally supportive with a tendency to ride higher in the travel. Source: my 2020 balance does literally all the things you've mentioned and is super pedally for a alloy/coil/170mm bike. Its like a slightly more poppy alloy nomad. The no bottle mounts in the triangle may annoy you, as it did me at first but I find a small hip pack with a bottle and windbreaker does really well (the highabove one with the fid lock bottle is suuuper convenient, if a little spendy)

Review: 2022 Specialized Status 140 - The Slope-Duro-Cross Weapon
@nurseben: I'd second this for anyone looking for these characteristics but also prioritizing the ability to pedal everywhere with the shock wide open. In that case the CBF is worth the $. I suppose the same can be said for most name-dropy suspension designs. Full disclosure - I own a Canfield Balance as my only suspension bike and its absolutely stupid how versatile that 170mm alloy coil sprung mini-tank is...

Review: RockShox' New Flight Attendant Suspension System
Or I'll just pedal my long travel CBF bike around for no extra costs and the same (rear shock) benefits...

Review: 2022 Devinci Spartan HP - The Sturdy Trail Smasher
My very alloy, very burly, coil shocked Canfield is lighter than this thing...

Field Test: 2022 Transition Spire - Suprisingly Versatile
The 1/2 a second of Levey eyebrow bouncing/gold toth grinning is the shadiest fucking thing I have ever seen I love it.

Hunt Release New Trail and Enduro Wheelsets - Pond Beaver 2021
@4thflowkage: lol. I think we all get lemon rim at some point... Its a rite of passage as a mountain biker. I think the best you can hope for is a well made and tested wheel with a good warranty policy. I had some DT e1900 that came stock on my current bike and man, the rear one may as well have been cheese! But everyone else seems to be happy with the strength of that rim. Funnily enough I just replaced them with some HUNT carbon AMs. On the other hand I had Spank Spikes on my last bike and despite my best efforts couldn't dent or damage those things no matter how many cased landings or other rider error BS I put them through - but plenty of people in this thread seem to have had the opposite experience with the spanks.

Ask Pinkbike: Fixing Rattling Brake Pads, Best Backcountry Bike, & Are Shock Lockouts Necessary?
100%. I'm a recent balance convert; a 170mm bike with a coil shock should not be this pedalable... yet here we are

Video: Connor Fearon Gets Rowdy on His Hardtail
Came here for nostalgia for my old honzo + to watch Connor shred. Segwayed to the added nostalgia + shred of the epic 26' Bfe cotic vid from a few years ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfZylC-n4qE All edits with this song have the same energy, 10/10 will attempt questionable lines on my hard-tail again.
