There's a Fine Line Between Clever and Stupid - Opinion
@alexsin: Nailed it. I have been saying this for years.. I'm 6.4 and I hate the obsession with low stack heights. My 2010 XL Enduro had a 170m headtube! My next bike had 130mm... I lost 40mm stack in a second and I had neck ache all the time. And I don't agree the this conversation is about geometry and not size issues. If an XL was truely that with better longer reach and stack it would be fine, but for years most bikes are a size smaller at least than they should be. Look at the recent (until the current super long trend anyway) trend of sizing up... fine if your a midget (average height!) but what if your over 190? No where to go. But then you get the problem mentioned to do with seat angles. Santa Cruz have released an XXL at last, but the seat puts you so far over the rear axle it's a joke. And they are not the only ones.. I think as mentioned this is about cost of production more than anything, but I think it's time for someone to start making bikes with taller riders in mind specifically, not just adding a few mil to a current model and calling it an XXL. Not sure about longer chainstay though, wheelbase get so long anyway as the reach grows that handling would be a barge. My old Enduro had a massive WB and it was a 26" enduro bike.. it was already longer than many normal sized DH bikes were at the time!

How Much Do Looks Matter When You’re Purchasing a Bike? - Pinkbike Poll
I find this funny because I was getting hammered in a Pole thread for saying it's ugly and that to most people, when buying a bike, looks matter at least as much as the ride quality. Several people were giving me so much crap for that statement but this poll proves it true.

What Are Your Riding Resolutions for 2018?
Buy an E-bike, ride More, have fun and royally piss off everyone on pinkbike. Actually forget riding and fun, I just love the fact that so many fools get so angry about Ebikes.

Sam Pilgrim Signs with Haibike
@HenkkaK: I agree. People who have never ridden one repeating what they here like fucking parrots and following the anti-e community like sheep. I for on whole I never meet these braindead assholes out on the trail. Mountain biking is a friendly community that should embrace everyone one on any bike (except roadies) and this ebike antagonistic hate is totally pointless
