Ask Pinkbike: Dirt Jumpers, Wheelies, and Extra-Soft Springs
@Chadimac22: At 6'3" I can only imagine your pain. I hit my knees on the handlebars of my DJ bike sometimes while pedalling.

North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018 - Round Two
@mallorcadave: When I built a frame I just fillet brazed the tubes together without lugs (I was making a tiny mountain bike with tons of standover but a nice relaxed headangle for my girlfriend, there were no lugs for that). It takes a bit more time shaping and profiling the ends of the tubes but it holds well and you have full control over angles etc.

North American Handmade Bicycle Show 2018 - Round Two
@mallorcadave: In the UK Ceeway is the place to go (http://www.framebuilding.com/) they have all the lugs, tubes, dropouts etc you could need. I imagine they would ship to Spain as well if you can't find a Spanish equivalent, might cost a bit though. My friend who does a lot of framebuilding has been raving about rattlecad as well, it is a free piece of software that allows you to start with a generic frame and tweak the geometry to your liking and then print out drawings to work from. Very cool.

It's not wrong and has never been wrong. The feeling of riding something you built yourself or seeing a friend or loved one riding something you built is the best.

Staff Rides – Aston's European-Made Nicolai GeoMetron Super Bike
Gearboxes are the future. Maintenance free, less rotational weight, free sexual favours. Don't you read the Pinkbike comments Mike?

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@BenPea: Taking your argument to its logical conclusion, Rampage runs are only 30-50 seconds, they should be on fully rigid bikes as there is no time to get fatigued, why even bother with front suspension? Suspension is about control, not fatigue. Again, the hills are short but steep and rough, not undulating or smooth.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@dthomp325: When the climbs are short and tough that means the descents are short, steep and fun though. This is probably not the bike I would choose if I was gonna get a YT, the Longer leg Jeffsy would suit me better but it would be a choice. I rarely feel over biked on my Yeti SB6 plus I have a ton of bigger jumpy stuff pretty local to me too which would suit the Capra.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@maglor: The idea of that combination dropper/locker that was being talked about really appeals to me. a remote lock out shock would be ok but I am firmly in the reducing cables/clutter camp and they are not easy to come by these days. Better than all of that would be a bike which pedals well with the shock open though so you don't need to think about it at all.
