Field Test: 2021 Commencal Meta Power - The Aluminum Sledge Hammer
@tttyyler: I went from a Charge Spoon (which I love) to an Ergon SM Enduro (which gives me a sore ass). It was more out of luck and wanting to try a different saddle.

Field Test: 2021 Commencal Meta Power - The Aluminum Sledge Hammer
@tttyyler: I have the same issue on my 2019 Meta TR with a 210mm OneUp. Luckily I have long enough legs that it was solved my shimming it to 200mm and using a seat with a little less stack height, but disappointing nonetheless.

Field Test: 2022 GT Force Carbon - Longer, Lower, Idler
Honestly I payed more attention to how hideous that helmet is than the article itself. Looks like something straight out of Spaceballs in the second photo.

Opinion: The Case For Being 'Over-Biked'
Being over-biked means you can never make the excuse of "oh I'd totally hit that if I had more travel" and being under-biked gives you street cred for hitting the same stuff that the other guy made the excuse for. So the correct answer is to pick the 130-150mm "trail" or "all mountain" bike. I can put a 2.3 DHF and a Rock Razor on my Meta TR and feel efficient and lively on XC trails or I can put a 2.5 Assegai/DHR and feel sluggish but have enough traction to ride park all day.

Rocky Mountain Releases the 2022 Blizzard Carbon
My Kona Woo has adjustable 420mm chainstays with a 26x4.8 tire, a nice long reach, and is an absolute blast in the snow. The headtube is a little steep at 69 degrees, but with a 130mm 29er fork and a -2 degree headset should be a great trail bike in the summer, now if only I could get ahold of parts to lace up a wheelset for it. I honestly don't mind the relatively steep headtube in the winter as most of my riding is on mellow trails and commuting

Guerrilla Gravity Announces Mixed Wheel 'MX Rally Build' on Megatrail & Shred Dogg
@PTyliszczak: I really wish they weren't such a fucking unattractive business because I do think the shape of the frames looks quite nice

First Ride: Manitou's New Dorado
@wcr: I've been running a Markhor on my shitsngiggles bike and now on my partner's first mtb. It's such a good fork for the money.
