Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@pimpin-gimp: Just saying Jared Graves' bike of choice for (most) races is a pimped out Stumpy 29 (160mm fork) as opposed to the Enduro, which seems to be Keene's go to.... when he's not injured (heal up, Curtis!).

@pimpin-gimp: gimp-pimp -> interesting that the Specialized boys split the difference in the EWS. Some gravitate towards the Stumpy and some the Enduro.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@hamncheez: hamnswiss -> did you read the review? I didn't read it as a glowing review at all.... at least not overall. For me and almost every rider I know it's more travel than they need, which means it's less fun and less fast over the wide range of terrain we have here in northern utah. If Levy says it climbs well, then that's fine. Of all the 180mm bikes out there, one of them has to climb better than the rest. I think most riders fall into his camp of wanting a better all-rounder with better trail feel, not a bulldozer. Anyway, unfortunately with this bike being so niche and very expensive, it's unlikely that most riders will ever get to throw a leg over one. You're right on the climb switch thing, but (and this may not have a point) there are many designs that still pedal poorly and rely on the rear shock to firm things up when desired, so "most every frame design pedals well" is not the case. Most designs can be tuned to pedal well, but usually at the expense of something on the opposite end. Finally, keep in mind that this design is unlike anything else on the market, what with that stanchion slider thingy down by the bb. What the hell does it do? That's what ML tried to answer. Other outlets will likely confirm his findings. No skids greased as to me he clearly stated that this bike is not the holy grail, though it does sound like it has a place amongst the gnar-bros and masochists that climb up to ride full on dh tracks down. Hmm.... maybe it's an enduro-bro bike. Anyway, I liked the review and thought it was fine. If this bike ever makes it to a demo in Utah then we'll go ride.

Iluv, we're way past needs at this point brah. It's all wants or preferences. Options are good. Even the not-so-sick riders want to get ill on occasion and feed their self image with long travel 29ers on 2.6 rubber and 200 f'n mm droppers on carbon rims that're stiffer than a strapping young lad's poker. You're welcome.

Cliche or not I think she's hot as hell. I wouldn't kick her out of my bed for eating crackers. Burly mid travel 29 FTW.
