5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
A 180mm fork with 30% sag drops 54mm, or a full 2 degree steeper for a hardtail. So the doctahawk sits at ~65* HA dynamic. Not that extreme.

Video: Vorsprung on Understanding Advanced Bike Geometry
It only took 40 years of mountain bikes to property understand geometry. The industry evolved geometry pathetically slow. Glad we're here now. Most bikes in the buy and sell I won't touch b/c the geo is garbage! Once you ride a proper geo bike you can go back. Anything else feels like a tinker toy!

"Seat tube angle could be steeper" Looks to me the seat is slid farther back in the post. At least put the saddle in the middle position before commenting on the seat angle.

Interbike Cancelled for 2019
Curious are the unions involved in setting up interbike? I've been involved in some tradeshows and only expensive union guys can do the booth setups driving up costs.

Opinion: E-bikes are Breeding the Components Riders Want
So a heavy all-steel cassette with no aluminum carrier or fancy construction is now an expensive item? Sounds just like the low end cassettes shimano and sram have been selling for $60 over the last decade. Oh but its new and E bike specific so up the price goes....?
