Spotted: Is This Specialized's New DH Bike?
@Boardlife69: that, or... Vernon got a job offer to make a living wage. I'm sure you would do the same if you were making peanuts and had the opportunity.

Really, would have been much better to measure saddle>bar drop since that's what matters and controls the leverage a rider has.

First Ride: Ibis Ripmo - Long-Travel 29er
@jcc0042: I know you feel burned, but don't blame Ibis. What you're asking for is pretty unreasonable in a competitive fast moving industry like this. You're saying they should have been telling customers to "hold off" for a couple months before rolling the bike out. In other words, confirming a new long travel 29er, months before it comes out? What bike brand do you know that will tell the public that they have a new x-wheelsize long travel bike coming out in a 'few months'? None. It sucks that the industry is that way, but it's not an Ibis thing.

First Ride: 2019 RockShox Lyrik RC2
@gnralized: You don't think boutique brands cut costs? They too could make their stuff 'even better' but they also make exceptions. Every business does... Apple, Ford, etc. Always a balance. So you should be hating on every company is the bike industry by that logic. Including Shimano, Fox and DVO. ... And that's great you would spend $300 (30%) more for a product for it to be made boutique. But you are about .001% of the market. Everyone is driven by price. Not just OEMs.

Suspension Travel - What's Your Ideal Amount? - Pinkbike Poll
All depends on wheel size. Generally 10mm less if talking 29 wheel. Pole should be setup based on wheel size.
