Saracen's 27.5'' and 29'' Myst DH Bike - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
@Loki87: I agree with you on the points you make but you are making a lot of assumptions about what would be the right thing to do. I was wondering what the truth was.

The industry has been telling us for years that 29ers need steeper HAs and more BB drop. Is it the same geometry when you compensate for that or is it the same geometry period?

They don't make sense on DH forks though.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
@Asmodai: Of course you are free to buy whatever you want. Your money might be better spent in other areas though. A $1000 fork and $700 worth of coaching is going to make you a lot better, faster rider for instance than a top end fork. Or a lower cost fork and a trip to your dream mountain bike destination with it. If you are in the fortunate position to afford to do all of those things and buy the best equipment then good for you, most people are not in that position.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
@Asmodai: The point he is making is that if you ride fast enough to warrant having a $1700 fork you don't need to pay for it yourself. You have a sponsor footing the bill. If you have to pay for it yourself, chances are you will be fine with the lower cost options.

Yeti's New SB100 Doesn't Fit The Mold - First Look
Have you owned one? My older SB66 pedals amazingly and still has great suspension when the trail points down without needing to fuss with the lockout lever. The switch systems do their job and do it well but they add expense to the manufacturing and maintenance of the bike so they obviously are never going to allow Yeti to build a budget bike around that platform. I don't think Yeti is interested in trying to compete in that market though.

Starling Murmur - Review
Guy who spent months riding the bike: "It works really well, the weight doesn't matter, it climbs great, descends great and is one of my favourite bikes of all time. The frame was out of alignment but that didn't actually cause any ride issues." Guys who have never seen one in person: "It's too heavy, it's out of alignment, It obviously rides terribly, its a piece of crap, why does this guy even review bikes, I clearly know better than he does?" Why do you bother to read reviews if you immediately ignore anything the reviewer says and stick with your own opinion?
