14 Bikes That Could Be Set for an Update in 2021
@Mjwilson82: YT sizing is different as they go Small to XXL so people can size up/down. The reach is definitely modern. Is it the longest out there? No, but it’s definitely not a short bike. When I bought one it was one of the only long travel enduro bikes that was over 500mm in its biggest size. Most new bikes are 500-520 in their biggest size. Head tube angle is at 65 degrees. Most new enduro bikes are 64. I expect the next gen to slacken a little. Chain stays 435-440 depending on size. They were ahead of the game by changing the length based on bike sizes. Modern numbers here. STA is pretty shit. 75.5 effective is definitely not realistic. Biggest issue I have with it, especially running a 210mm dropper. Just look at the new slash for comparison... the Capra is pretty darn close geo wise and is 3 years old. With the exception of the STA and a slightly steeper HTA, the bike has pretty modern geometry.

14 Bikes That Could Be Set for an Update in 2021
The current gen Capra still has pretty modern geo with the exception of the STA. Im sure the next gen will have a water bottle holder just to shut people up. Regardless I’m pretty excited to see what they do. I definitely plan to get one to replace my 2018 at some point.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Buy a Frame Only or a Complete Bike?
I think many more riders would love to build up a bike from scratch but the bike companies charge so much more for the frame only. Better to buy complete and swap parts.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 39 - Predicting the Future of Mountain Biking
Bikes will continue to climb in price, hight pivots everywhere, nothing is in stock, no new sanctioned trails on the shore. Biking will continue to be fun.

Field Test: Searching Out the Best Values in the Enduro Category
I’m intrigued by this bike. I hope they make it available in Canada one day. The ability to pick and choose individual parts is incredible. Only downside is no shimano drivetrain options.

Fox Release 200mm Drop Transfer Seatpost
This. I’m climbing soooo far back on my XXL bike with a 210mm dropper. Norco is one of the few brands that realized the sta should get steeper as the bike gets bigger on the sight. I hope other brands follow suit.
