5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
@vinay: ok thanks for the clarification. One honest question still remains for me, and maybe you can answer that as well: What are people needing those 170mm forks for on their hardtails? I personally can't think of any track where I need that much front travel without getting absolutely hammered in the back on a hardtail... BTW, please don't read this as criticism, but just as being curious. If people find use with 200mm hardtails that's fine by me. You should always ride what makes you happy :) (in my case hardtail for XC and 160mm fully for everything else).

5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
@z26in-forlife: very true. But I think the questions aren't regarding the use of hardtails in general, but regarding the usefulness of having 160mm or more of suspension and DH geometry on those hardtails. While I'm sure some will find it a fun challenge to ride double black runs on a hardtail, just like some find it fun to ride off-road with their scooter, I find it hard to believe it is a pleasant experience. And in general I enjoy riding both full suspension and hardtails.

@ThunderChunk: but why 160mm of front suspension and super slack head angles when there's no mountain or gnar ?

Review: Schwalbe Hans Dampf II Tire
That's probably because no one buys a Magic Mary for speed

5 Details About SRAM's Wireless AXS Components
Hopefully it won't be like a modern Gibson: mainly feeding off of a reputation earned in the past and not lived up to in the present... A similarly priced PRS has 10x better QC and build quality.

@gtill9000: yes it seems only logical that of the derailleur can't function without it, that by definition the gearbox lasts the lifetime of the derailleur... Either another part dies first or the gearbox stops working and the derailleur is at the end of its lifetime... It is therefore a meaningless statement.

@iamamodel: Just hope GPS accuracy is good enough. Being 5 meters off horizontally might result in hilarious behavior...

Review: Roval Traverse Carbon Wheels
@spaceofades: hubs are at the center of the wheel and their weight therefore has a relatively low impact on acceleration.
