First Ride: The New Canyon Strive
@utley06: Depends where you live dude, the modern geo is awesome in BC, WA etc. 65-66 HTA 29er with long reach is fine for climbing when combined with short stem, short offset fork and steep STA which is the problem with the new Strive, tall dudes are gonna be seated on the rear axle.

First Ride: YT's New Long-Travel 29er, the Jeffsy 29 CF Pro Race
@milan89ers: The rear shocks are the same eye to eye length simply with longer stroke. The Pro Race is 210x55 and the others are 210x50, it's simply that the 140mm version shock is travel limited by a spacer on the shock shaft. On the 27 version it's the same story 230x65 vs 230x60 shock. Believe me, I have seen it with my own eyes on my Jeffsy 27. The forks are 10mm more travel on the Pro Race hence the geo changes as I explained above. Most forks you can change the air shaft for ~$40ish to get the extra 10mm.

@powderturns: they AL Jeffsy can indeed take angleset, the carbon cannot (IS headset).

@milan89ers: Eye to eye on the shock is the same, so the static geometry numbers do not change from the carbon base models to Pro Race. What changes it the +10mm fork travel which increases axle to crown, slackens the HTA and STA bike about 0.5 degrees, raises BB slightly and reduces reach as the bars come closer to the centre line.

34 to 36 is like 200g weight penalty, on a 28-30lbs bike who cares, worth it for the stiffness but mostly for the superior damper on the 36 platform (GRIP or GRIP2). 32mm is flexy XC stuff and makes no sense unless you are racing XC and shaving every gram to improve climbing times. In summary: move to BC.

@Uuno: That's somewhat true, but you would compromise suspension performance by forcing the longer stroke shock to sit higher with a lower sag % to preserve dynamic ride height. To be fair, we are talking about 1.5mm difference in shaft displacement at sag here (30% sag @ 15mm shock stroke 140mm or 16.5mm for 150mm version) so minutia haha. I am changing my shock on my 2017 Jeffsy to get 160mm (27.5 version) for this exact reason: more margin for error without a real downside.
