First Look: All New 2022 Scott Spark - The Next Generation of Integration
Pretty wild idea and a good looking frame... But 540mm ST on an XL? 800mm+ standover? I thought we were done with 100mm dropper posts. Its a thoroughbred XC bike. The 900 version shouldn't exist. Its too tall to be a proper downcountry bike.

NEW Banshee Phantom V2 XL$1300 USD
Selling a brand new Banshee Phantom V2 frame. Size XL. Includes shock, headset, and boost dropouts. Bike was assembled, ridden around a dirt parking lot, and then sat in the garage. I'm putting the build kit on another frame. This frame rode too similar to my 111 and I don't need 2 of the same bike, even though the raw aluminum finish is gorgeous!

Field Trip: Norco's $1,499 Fluid Loves All-Day Pedal Fests
@JDFF: 65HTA on trail hardtails is a very recent idea... I guess we'll see if it sticks. At some point we're going to hit a tipping point on modern geometry... where the progressive HTA/STA no longer balances well with wheelbase. That point has already been crossed for my local riding. I ride a 66 HTA Honzo now and its great for steeps and high speed, but sucks on tight low-speed sections and techy climbs in comparison to the 68 HTA that was progressive 5 years ago. Geometry is an equilibrium where nothing is free. You're right that the perfect geo for each person depends on their local topography. The hardtail geo that I want for wide open riding in Socal is totally different than the hardtail geo I want for low speed tech in Marquette. We'll have to agree to disagree on what that exact balance point should be for a 120mm hardtail. I'm just frustrated seeing every hardtail compared to a benchmark geo that is designed for a very specific topography that most riders don't choose a hardtail for.
