The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@vlajko: It is a spacer limiting stroke at bottom out, not at top out.

The New YT Capra - Everything You Need to Know
@TheRaven: You are correct. Same shock chassis... a 230x65mm shock and a 230x60mm shock are the same aside from a spacer on the shaft. However... you can't just pop open the air can to remove the spacer. A full shock rebuild is required to remove or add the stroke/travel spacer.

A Day on Patrol at Retallack - Video
@patdinho: ETA had been "mid to late October" and as you get closer to those dates, the estimate gets more and more accurate. It sounds like you have heard the estimated ETA was pushed back a couple weeks to "early November." Keep in mind that it's generally good practice to give safe dates so you don't disappoint people. Rather than waiting until late October and then telling you "it will be here soon" you have been given a realistic estimate, based on more up to date info. Seems pretty good to me? What you were apparently told: "It's always so hard to lock down a definite date as there are so many variables, we were suppose to receive them mid to end of October however It does look like the estimated arrival got pushed until the 1st of November which is still an estimate... Sorry for the inconvenience." And FYI that Transition does not accept any payment from a dealer or end consumer until a bike is actually shipping out. So if you have already paid for that at a shop... that is between you and the shop. Transition doesn't have your money yet.

e*thirteen's New 29er DH Wheelset and Tires - Eurobike 2017
Back in the 70's Shimano had a Dura Ace 10 group for track racing that used 10mm pitch chains. Look it up! It's crazy how small a 48t front ring looks in person with that pitch chain.

The Dismantling of North Fork trails in Whatcom County has begun.
Regardless of who brings the lawsuit, there have never been any succesful suits against the state for an injury on public land. --If I have heard this statistic correctly. I think Mark Mauren chose the 2.1 million number because it sounds more threatening and real than an even number like 2 million. Sadly this is the USA and liability is the problem. Structures and jumps removed... whatever... but let people keep riding on public land. There has been some very impressive drainage work done, and plenty of careful routing to avoid problem areas. About as wet as it could be the last weekend and nothing resembling a washout or runoff problem. Some standing water here and there, but it wasn't going anywhere, certainly not into any streams. The environmental impact argument is such BS when you look at what the logging in the area has done, and will continue to do. TZ's trail is a work of art and they are about to log that. It follows a ridge near a creek, once those trees are gone what is going to happen to rain water and soil retention? The skidder they are going to punch in to remove trees is going to cross and disturb several drainages. Right and MTB bridges over creeks are such a problem.

Cougar797... you are a prime candidate to mail and email the DNR. Politicians are largerly on the MTB side of the issue, but the DNR is going to continue to need "nudging". Tell them you think this is a major waste of money. Point out that the builders have offered to have environmental impact studies done at no cost to the DNR. Most importantly, tell them you had planned to move to WA state because of trails like these, without them you may not come here.

Transition's 130 mm travel Bandit - First Look
BUT.... it is a 74 degree ST angle... Look at the WB and the reach too. It compares pretty closely to other bikes with longer TT and a bit slacker ST angle. The XL is definitely plenty big.

Transition Blindside 2010 - first looks
I second that comment. Ride to the top (albeit slowly) and then you can rip on the way down. Yeah... I guess that is classic "freeride" but it goes beyond that to just straight up trail riding on a big bike.
