First Ride: The New Canyon Strive
@sid700: My "trail" bike has a 62-63º head angle and that has little effect on its pedaling ability. Slack head angles make the bike wander on uphills IF you have a short reach bike, with decent reach it ceases to be a problem. I didn't say you needed 63º on this bike but a little slacker and it would feel better for sure!

@nozes: I didn't say they invented only that it was done before Rotor.

@sid700: Yes a bike should be balanced and yes most people wouldn't notice the difference of 1º in HA, However, slacker is better up to a point, that point is 63º.

Sounds like a great idea to me, though hydraulic shifting has been done before by another company: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Pinkbike-First-Look-Acros-AEG-11-MT-Hydraulic-Shifting.html

First Ride: Norco's 2020 Revolver Cross-Country Bike
Decent reach, decent seat angle, decent wheelbase, reasonable headangle with short chainstays finally an XC bike with geometry I can get behind! And surprise, surprise it rides well who would have thought, eh?

WTB's New Verdict Tires Are Designed for Maximum Traction
If said short person doesn't ride old school style off the back then I see no problem.

@PA37: Ok then my mistake. Their wheelbase is way longer than stock though with Minnaar's bike coming in 15mm longer at 1330mm and Shaw's is 1320mm. Loris has a 1310mm wheelbase which is huge for a large even with 455mm chainstays. Maybe Loris is running an his headangle in the 62ºs.

Sweet vid but I think he'd be better on an even longer bike. Shame Santacruz didn't make a XXL V-10- XL has 492mm of reach and Ben is how tall? The Syndicate bikes are even longer and even Loris is on a longer bike than Ben.
