Opinion: Why Is Everyone Talking About Seat Tube Angles?
Dropper on the Pole I have is smooth as buttered eels, zero binding. Always used to be ‘kind’ when dropping the post, don’t have to pay much attention now. FWIW, I’ve found the 79 sta to be super comfortable and natural feeling.. you’re in a position that makes you want to climb. I let other ppl demo and they said the same. At the end of the day, that Machine climbs well beyond a class of what it should on paper especially considering the weight, HTA and travel.

Point: Suspension Lockout Levers Have Made Bikes Worse
Some of the Fox shocks I’ve had in the past have a floppy pedal-platform lever that would flip down into open after a few hits, whether I wanted it or not. Maybe this can be a feature? Big enough hit and it pops to open, you can set the threshold. Fox Flicks, are you listening??

Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
@RichardCunningham: I think we are mostly in agreement; I still feel the unsprung component is largely ignored when people put a bike up on the scales. All people want to see is that the scale reads u see some magic number, while there is more to the equation. 29” wheels magnify these handling effects, where the same weight increase leads to even worse low speed performance traits. Overall, the average rider on identical 30 lb trail bikes would benefit from the one with a much lighter weight wheel assembly (all unsprung parts included). They’re more responsive with handling and accelerate quickly, both of which are immediately noticeable from the first pedal stroke.

Poll: Does Your Trail Bike Have a Weight Problem?
@clink83: hah yes! This was just to illustrate the point that power/weight has an overwhelming effect during climbs, and 8 or 10 lbs of bike weight is very noticeable.

$2500 CAD
Low mileage Remedy 9.8, Trek’s second highest build spec for the Remedy carbon frame. The bike has averaged 6-8 rides per year, completely stock aside from new Maxxis tires. Well maintained, just a very occasional rider that isn’t really interested anymore. A few cosmetic scratches from use but nothing standout. Full specs can be seen here: https://archive.trekbikes.com/us/en/2015/Trek/remedy_9_8_29#/us/en/2015/Trek/remedy_9_8_29/details

Chromag Announces Doctahawk, a Super Aggressive 180mm, 29er Hardtail
425 chainstays with a 501 reach?? On paper it looks like a ‘79 Corvette... if the drivers seat was in the trunk! I’m all for long and slack but would have to have a serious test ride before even considering. Nevermind the $$ for cro-mo and pressfit.
