2018 Canyon Spectral - First Ride
@jclnv: Suit yourself but imho you are missing out on some of the best times you can have on a bike. Having owned a Banshee Spitfire and currently rinding an Orange 5, 140 mm are my sweetspot for all kinds of shenanigans. Even the EWS trails in Finale Ligure never had me wishing for more.

Race Face Next R Carbon Wheels - Review
I can buy two Stan's Flow MK3 wheelsets and go to Finale Ligure for one week for that kind of money. Or buy one wheelset and go to Finale for two weeks. Well, I think you catch my drift. 1500$ carbon wheels... Hahahaha... No thanks.

Merida Big Trail - Review
Oh boy... I am praying for the day when hardtail designers from overseas will learn the difference between static and actual (sagged) head-angle. Take a look at a Last Fast Forward, this is how you should design a modern hardtail for trails and such. Heck, even a 2012 On One 456evo had a head angle of 65,7°!

Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
Bought a Banshee Spitfire V2 in 2014, never felt the urge for more travel. As long as you're not a professional XC or Enduro / downhill racer, no average joe ever needs more than what a trail bike of that sort has to offer. I've been to Finale Ligure, Samoens, the Austrian alps, South Tyrol, the Vosges and so on. There is no limit of what you can do with a 140 mm bike if you do it right. Pedal up, hammer down, repeat. I honestly think a lot of people riding 160+ mm Enduro bikes are held back in their progression because the loose sense for the terrain they are riding on.
