First Ride: Cannondale's All-New Scalpel SE
@jonbuckell: They must have changed it up from the topstone and previous models as AI has always been 6 mm. Rear Wheel: 3 mm Boost Ai Offset to NDS Hollowgram SpideRing: Ai Offset SRAM Chainring: +6 mm Offset I still stand by my preference not to have all this proprietary stuff but agree 3 mm is not as dramatic as 6 mm. ON a side note - that is one of the best manuals I have ever seen! I still take the specialized. Ride safe and fun

On the Fence: Specialized Epic EVO vs. Cannondale Scalpel SE
@thegoodflow: I have hip issues and my heals point in. Anything but SRAM or Shimano and I simply cannot pedal with normal pedals. Hence my frustration that I could not really run my XTR cranks. Also my XC we are one wheels would have to be dished 6 mm to use. Not optimal. Not saying for most this would not be a great bike. I go specialized any day - all day in this battle.

@LeDuke: You are a lucky one. Google Hambini and Cannondale. Intense likely has tighter tolerances and does PF right. I have been burned on 2 of my last 4 PF frames - a Cervelo and a 3T. Ovality and misalignment on both. The Cannondale cranks have a 55 mm chainline to compensate for the rear 6 mm shift. Google what other cranks have - more like 52 mm in boost. Great if yours works but I doubt Shimano Cranks would work on a Scapel like the stock Cannondales. Less options.

@thegoodflow: Agreed about the cranks as for as install - but is the chain line on those cranks unique. Remember they have shifted everything over 6 mm in the back. They use a 55 mm chain line. I believe shimano is more like 52 mm or less in boost.

Cannondale Proprietary cranks, pressfit BB and wheel offset vs Specialized industry standard stuff. Hard choice....

First Ride: Norco's 2020 Revolver Cross-Country Bike
@mikelevy: In your moment of self control - I do not see you raving about the 35 mm Sid Ultimate? Am I correct that the 120 mm Party Bike comes with the skinny 32 mm stanchions? Seems like the term Downcountry cannot be used if a 32 mm tubed fork is out front? I saw one at the LBS and it appears it gets the flimsy fork on the 120 model?

Video: In-Depth Analysis of Riding Positions with The Strength Factory
@MTB-Strength-Factory: It is the heels back and leg straight position. I am a ex-MTB XC racer that is always been exceptionally fit and light until recently. Therefore, I’ve been able to mask my position problems. Where previously lived most down hills lasted no more than 2 minutes before a flat section or uphill - whereas there up to 15 minute down hills where I currently live therefore my legs tickly quads been getting incredibly tired. I joked that I feel like I’m doing a wall set. Thank for the video!
