Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
@R-M-R: I'm not sure what you're talking about. Seems like everything else in the industry is settled. Last I checked we all agreed on bottom bracket type, head tube size, handlebar control configuration and wheel spacing.....

Don't these numbers all change once you sit on the bike and sag the suspension? My understanding is that 30% rear suspension sag is not necessarily 30% rear suspension travel since the leverage ratio changes through the shock stroke. In the front 30% sag is 30% travel. As a result, a 150mm/150mm bike set @ 30% sag front and rear is no longer level like it was when it was sitting there and the angles were measured. Would get even more wonky on bikes with different travels F/R or different sags F/R. Would it make more sense to give angles at prescribed sag values?

Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
Would have loved to see the two bikes side by side with the back wheels even. Then you could really see what the difference in head angle or length was as opposed to trying imagine the mm and deg of differences. Also, is the weight argument really valid? Isn't the regular Stumpy the $8k top line kit and the evo is the $4.5k GX kit? Of course they're going to have weight differences. Would be nice to compare apples to apples on that one with similar parts spec so you can get the weights more even and see how much feel is geo and how much is actual weight.

First Ride: Revel's Rail Enduro Bike is an Impressive Debut
Awesome that they're launching a new bike brand today. Not awesome that there are no links to a website in any of the articles or that it shows up on Google. Would be fun to dive more into paint colors, build kits etc...
