Yeti Cycles Big Mountain Enduro Presented by Shimano – Calendar Update and New Stops Added to 2017 Tour
This combined with the Saturday and Friday events is sort of a "screw you" to all the amateurs in my opinion. Why not make the races Sunday so people can take less time off?

It has been sold. I'm still awaiting the payment to clear paypal or I would have taken it down.

RockShox Announce New Super Deluxe Coil
I wanna know what Transition that is. I'm sure it's just a new color way on the Patrol but that's exactly how I'm building my Smuggler with custom decals.

Norco Range 9.2 - First Ride
@ukr77: I got really nerdy and measured the shock stroke on his metric bike from a picture at the GoPro games last year and it's only a 55mm stroke shock which in theory wouldn't increase the travel THAT much. I'd be willing to bet they update the Smuggler AND introduce a new bike but that new one might be another year out. Carbon would be nice though. When you start adding slightly beefier components for racing, or just being a trail hack like myself, all these bikes get heavy fast. I think with proper DD tires, chain guide, and aluminum rims a carbon Smuggler could still be right at 30 lbs which would be ideal IMO.

Norco Range 9.2 - First Ride
100% agree with this. I took a few laps this summer going back and forth between my Large Carbon Operator and an XL V10 and I felt 100% more balanced on the V10. I also had the same sense when demoing a SB6C, perfectly centered in the bike. With these new 29" Enduro bikes being so race focused I think front-to-back balance is even more important. Super short stays on something like a Transition Scout that's meant to be fun, great, but not as great on a race-oriented bike.

@ukr77: The Carbon Patrol came out early 2016, then the Carbon Scout summer of 2016. I would imagine we will see an update to the Smuggler sometime this summer like the Scout, however, I'm not sure they'd put the money into retooling everything and making a carbon version without going to metric like the Patrol but I could be wrong.

@NWuntilirest: @dynamatt: I feel the exact same. I'm a gangly 6'-1", 29" wheels just feel better, plus there's more rocks and less features here in CO. I'm about to order a Smuggler built up with an angleset and a Lyrik but I sure as shit will be ordering a new frame immediately if they drop a longer travel version.

I saw glimpses of this bike on Bryn Atkinson's instagram, stoked to finally see it. Also saw Lar's Sternberg of Transition on a shiny prototype trail rig, can't wait for a long travel 29" bike from Transition!
