First Look: Esker's Updated Hayduke Hardtail
So, aside from the STA being 2 degrees slacker it's a Camfield Yelli Screamy, but heavier and $300 more expensive with chainstays I'll never mess with.

It’s Time to Recalibrate Our Ideas About Chainstay Length
"I believe the next big step for progress is starting to have sensible discussions around chainstay length and to stop using descriptors like “nimble”, “playful” or “snappy” around them." Then do it. We all dare you.

Company Behind Hunt & Privateer Receives Funding for Expansion
@wyorider: that's more true of their MTB stuff. Their road stuff is borderline nothing but hype. They're effectively the same Chinese factory products that Prime (owned by Wiggle, who owns Chain Reaction Cycles) also sells at a lower price. Hunt claims to have "aerodynamic" shallow, alloy rims and their more expensive carbon fiber, deep rims don't hold up to other rims both more expensive and cheaper than Hunt.

@redrook: here's "physics" for you. I made a video since you can't bother to read what I said every time, which is you can't pull up, but you can pull back. You sent a video about bunny hopping, I'll send you a video about pedaling, which we're actually talking about. In the video you can clearly see how with a flat foot, you can move the pedal 20 degrees. If you plantarflex, you can move it further (the "scoop"). Obviously no plantarflexes while pedaling, so nobody scoops. Don't be an idiot. Read what I wrote. If you wanna talk about "physics" then that's fine. Biomechanics and physics were what I studied before I got to med school. Given that a pedal at bottom center (which was the point of the article I quoted, to explain the 4 transitions of a pedal stroke which I verified you can at least read the abstract of from my link) is at a position with the crank arm perpendicular to the ground and the pedal is parallel, a force exerted by your leg onto the pedal will be parallel with the ground as well, creating a clockwise rotation. Also, since biomechanics do matter when pedaling, the only muscle that can exert this force is the shorthead of biceps femoris. The other 3 portions of the hamstring are lengthening at the hip while flexing at the knee, creating an isometric force which produces no changes in muscle length. So we're biomechanically limited to the SH of BF. Thus, we can only create a force with a FLAT foot (not pointing down, as needed to scoop up) that points in the direction of the chainstays. Therefore, yes, you can't pull up. I've said this in every post. But you can pull backwards. Using SH of BF, you can move it about 20 degrees. To move it further to almost 90 degrees, you'd need to scoop. But at that point you're creating an upward force PERPENDICULAR to the chainstays and ground (you know, the way an upwards arrow points). I'm saying you pull back.

@Jackaboo: and you should read what I wrote because I never said you could pull up.

@redrook: yes I can and did read it, I'm in med school so I have access to most of PubMed. I forgot I was logged in, that's my bad. You should be able to read the abstract that states the 4 portions of the circle though. But none of you are bothering to even read what I've clearly written so I'll write it again. You cannot pull UP on a flat pedal, which you dunces have stated multiple times along with myself. However, you can pull a pedal backwards. Obviously nobody scoops (plantarflexes) when cycling so there's no upward force. You're an idiot if you think you can plantarflex through the pedaling motion. However, if a pedal is at the bottom of the stroke, you can absolutely use your hamstring to pull it BACKWARDS about 20* before you'd have to pull UP. Literally all of you have a bike you could sit on and put one leg on a pedal and do this.
