Nukeproof Mega 275 Carbon - First Ride
@jollyXroger: I suppose its a very specific type of riding - sounds almost like trials riding out in the woods to me, not typical of the kind of riding a 160mm full suspension is intended for I suppose. Anyway, can always size down if the frame has a suitably long seat tube.

@blank-fire: Maybe his head is still in the 70's when the company was the same?

@WaterBear: The launch pads are really good, agree with that - They are pretty cheap too compared to a $120 pair of shorts, I am good with maufacturing parts out of metal but clothes I have no idea so maybe the materials / tech challenge is much higher, or they can just get away with it.

A £10.00 (or less) 'active wear' t-shirt from sporst direct or similar will work loads better than a cotton t-shirt - I ride in a T-shirt pretty much when its not either really hot or really wet and cold. If a cotton t-shirt gets wet you end up with this cold, wet, heavy thing stuck to you thats going to take ages to dry out.

For me to get a jacket for rainy weather and one for 'windy' weather, a few pairs of shorts, a couple of jerseys and gloves and a pair of riding shoes it would come to well well over $1000.....

Thule's Tailgate Solution and New MTB Backpacks - Interbike 2017
@powergavin: I suppose its why so many people use a van with no windows now in the UK - Someone had his bike stolen from a roof mounted rack when he went into the petrol station to get change for the jetwash - he was literally inside for a minute - You would have been able to see the car from the window but they followed him there. I suppose he should have it locked and you could lock the bike in the back of a pickup but then its the worry about someone following you home, bit of a crap state of things really but what else can you steal in 30 seconds thats easy to get away with (not heavy / unwieldy) is worth upto £8k and you can easily shift on, especially if stripped :-(

@jollyXroger: http://forums.mtbr.com/attachments/santa-cruz/1151098d1502218231-santa-cruz-hightower-lt-img_8688.jpg That looks terrible - A picture of the smaller size on the same thread looks pretty decent, in the larger size with a long seatpost the seated position is awful, it must feel like you are pushing forwards on the pedals when seated climbing.

@jollyXroger: That must mean if you were very tall on a Hightower LT XXL the saddle would literally be over the rear axle. Santa Cruz cut some corners to bring everyone the long travel version of that bike, hey at least its cheap though, right?

I love the idea of a pickup and taking my bike out for a ride like that but here in the UK (Not sure what its like elsewhere) if you leave a nice bike in the back for longer than two seconds it may be the last time you ever see it. - I mean you literally couldnt leave it while paying for fuel, nipping into a shop for a drink etc - Trucktop would be the only way for me but I suppose these are for shuttling more than anything.
