Review: The Digit Datum & Its Integrated 'Analog' Suspension
@bananowy: I’m 6’ with a large coming. Based on lots of time with a geometry calculator I’ll start with a 33mm stem with 15mm of spacers and a 35mm rise bar, with the saddle forward on the rails 4mm. This puts the bike right at my sweet spot, with the same seated fit as my other bikes but slightly shorter effective reach and higher front end. My effective seat tube angle will be 75 degrees: I have two bikes with 77-78 degree ESTAs that I prefer to get down to 76 by sliding the saddles back. All this to say the geo is spot on if you set it up right. I’d say the 20mm rise bar and 40mm stem made this hard to achieve for a 5’10” rider though.

Field Test: 2022 Fezzari La Sal Peak - The Purple Trail Eater
It's the lower-end builds where you'll find the value, I think. Base model is $4k with nice DVO suspension. The big winner for me would be the $5k model with Zeb/Super Deluxe Ultimate, GX, and good alloy wheels (Stans Flow MK4).

First Look: Actofive's CNC-Machined Signature Cranks Are a Work Of German Art
And I’m pretty sure X01 cranksets are about $300… this is a weird paragraph. Edit: OK they’re $377, but regularly available for $300.

Review: 12 Months With the EXT Era Fork
@dthomp325: Exactly. I used the Helm all last year and mostly loved it, but at 160lbs the 45lb spring bottomed out too easily (and the 55lb spring was way too stiff). I ended up buying a 50lb spring from Ohlins that should fit, but replaced the fork with a Lyrik in the off-season so I haven’t even tried the new spring yet. The Lyrik is… pretty much better all around. I am looking forward to trying the Helm again with the “right” spring, probably on a new bike next year.

Looks like STA=ESTA due to the straight seat tube, so seat tube angle should remain 75 no matter what your saddle height is. That helps.
