Here's Why Chromag's Doctahawk Hardtail is So Long & Slack
The shorter the chainstays, the more the geometry will change as the suspension compresses. Presumably the "dynamic" SA and HA will be slacker on an fs with short chainstays, all else being equal.

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
I have a Honzo with a 120mm, and that's already a bit scary when it uses the full travel and the geometry gets so much steeper. I guess that's why this bike needs a 62 HA. I'm also pretty sure I'd get bucked off a hardtail on the type of terrain that's capable of bottoming a 160 or 180 fork unless it was setup super soft with a ton of sag. I personally don't get it, but if a hardtail with a 180mm fork is what's fun for you, then go for it.

This model comes with a bleed lever like the Revive. Hopefully it will fix the issues and also become available on the standard version.

Performance to Close All Remaining Stores, Over 95 ASE Employees Laid Off
Confession. I once bought a super nice XC race wheelset from Performance (back when they sold higher end stuff) that I couldn't really afford, raced it one weekend, and returned it afterwards with their no-questions asked satisfaction guaranteed policy. Was a set of Crossmax or something back when Mavic was the only game in town. "yeah, didn't really like them sorry".

The last time I used PricePoint I had forgotten my password and username the password reset link. It emailed me my actual password in cleartext. I sent them a message, changed my password and never used them again.

5 Details About SRAM's Wireless AXS Components
I only ride in high radiation areas, will this still shift. I don't want to miss shifts! What if the NSA takes over this frequency for nanobots? I demand to know the specs Sram!

5 Details About SRAM's Wireless AXS Components
Sram, my friends and I ride exclusively in frozen salt mines where mechanical derailleurs work *just fine*. Does your fancy "battery" technology hold up to these conditions? Does the wireless radio operate properly in high radiation conditions? I doubt it, and I don't want to lose a shift just cause I'm riding past a small ore deposit. Personally I will stick with tried and true cables for now, but please Sram release the full specs so I know how this thing I'm never going to buy will work in my absurd riding scenarios.

Review: Outsider Bikes Adjustable Offset Crowns
I recently swapped from 51 to 42 offset on my Evil Wrecking, and the shorter offset climbs noticably better (less front wheel wander), but I don't feel any noticable difference on the descents or with cornering.
