The Complete Guide to the 2018 UCI World Cup Downhill Tracks
@CM999: Toronto Blue Jays are in Canada, so it could in theory be in a different country.

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
@lusenator: They appear to have no idea what they're talking about with regards to the advantages of a rear hub mounted motor. It seems like an easy option for another company to fit into, the pinion mounting standard seems to be gaining traction. Build an E-motor with a frame that just bolts into that.

Should the Derailleur Die? Zerode's Gearbox-Equipped Taniwha - Review
@cstishenko correction, you have to shift while coasting. They’re neat bikes, but to me that’s where it ends. Just a nomad geo copy, with a real well done single pivot and a gearbox with a silly shifter. That all together costs an arm and a leg. Getting stuck on a surprise pinch climb and not being able to shift is pretty annoying. Can’t run my brake lever setup the way I wanted with the shifter as the lever hit the shifter. The bike that Rob Metz actually rides looks a lot more fun with a real high pivot.

Rocky Mountain Introduces New Vertex Hardtail
@vinay: with the theory being that the seattube would bow, like Trek does with IsoSpeed? Without a pivot in the frame like a Trek, you’ll get far more flex out of syntace HyFlex post, or something like a CGR post. Especially considering many of them come with alloy seatpost.

Santa Cruz Announces New Highball Hardtail
@Jvhowube: I bought a frame set. Running a fit4 34, XT build kit, Zee brakes, mk3 flows to XT hubs. Wouldn’t want a pike on it. I switch between 120 and 130mm travel from time to time. Anything more and it feels weird and awful. Haven’t risen my stumpy since I bought it. Building a second set of wheels and a second bar stem combo for bikepacking. Something lighter, and like a jones bar. It’s comfy to ride, i haven’t really found the limit of its ability. Take it down some proper gnarly stuff and it’s been awesome.

@gdharries: yeah I understand that. By a factory shim, solves that and gives the rest of the people more choice and option. Instead we get repeatable generic hardtails. Sure some cool carbon layup jargon.

@sixstringsteve: head angle is mint where it is. But needs a steeper seat angle. Just rode mine through the Trans nz and it was mint, but was begging for a steeper seat angle.

@brianpark: super simple shim solves this issue. Spesh shipped their enduro’s with a shim before they launched the wu. Run it with a shim and a suntace HyFlex post if you are a weight weenie. Run a normal dropper if you’re not a goof. Shame that the three big bikes (vertex, blur, grail) launched this week in this sort of area come with the wrong seatpost size and in carbon. So it means we won’t see the right one for at least 3 years.

Why no 30.9? Can always shim down to a 27.2 high-flex. But limiting to 27.2 dropper posts is bunk.
