Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
@LuvAZ: The Marin version definitely looks better but their geo is still surprisingly tame considering how edgy this suspension design in. Still got the slack ESTA but an even longer seat tube, which we really don't need any more.

Is Polygon's Square One EX9 the Elusive 'One Bike'? - Review
Well it sure looks weird but if the ride is everything it's said to be I would totally consider it. A bigger issue is the geo. The XL is damn short in reach and ETT with a slack ESTA and a high BB. These things are dealbreakers for me. The looks aren't.

Scott Genius 2018 - First Ride
This is a big bike for sure comparable to an XXL SC Hightower. Is 6'1" the intended rider size for this bike?

Staff Rides - Mike Levy's Rocky Mountain Element
Totally agree. Seeing peoples' idiosyncracies revealed by weird component selection, or unique solutions to a particular fit or geographical requirement. Let's see more stuff like this.

Öhlins Debuts New Trail/Enduro Forks
Absolutely love this. Amazing. Just hope it isn't one of those times where it takes 2 seasons for X-Heavy springs to become available.

SRAM GX Eagle: A Wallet Friendly 12-Speed Drivetrain - First Ride
Maybe some people aren't as strong a climber as you? Maybe some people live in places with much steeper, much longer climbs than you? There are plenty of places where you need to pedal on the road to get to/from your local trail. If I run a 30x 11-42 it wears out super fast no matter what brand. More teeth is more teeth. In theory more teeth means spreading the wear out better. Eagle with a 34t chainring makes sense to me on paper. Crushing $500 cassettes not so much. But now there's this cheaper option.

Brendan Fairclough's Scott Gambler – Fort William DH World Cup
Scott is a company that typically hasn't been great for taller riders. An XL DH bike from them is a step in the right direction, hopefully it's properly big and not just the bigger option for a L rider. Funny how an aluminum bike with 27.5 wheels seems so ordinary all of a sudden. Well played, bike industry.

The New Santa Cruz Nomad is Longer and Slacker Than Ever – First Ride
Does this have a 34.9 seat tube or is it still 31.6? Any idea if the new Hightower will be? As seat tubes get shorter and droppers get longer it only makes sense to go to a bigger inner diameter.
