First Ride: Rocky Mountain's 2024 Altitude Has a Completely Revised Frame Design
@justinfoil: The opening is yuge. Slightly larger than the swat opening on Specialized models which was the largest we measured. You can slide in a set a mid-weight kneepads with D30 inserts like the Atkas or Race Face Indys.

First Ride: Rocky Mountain's 2024 Altitude Has a Completely Revised Frame Design
Measurements I don't have, but I've put 3 jerseys, our tube bag with tube installed, 2 AXS batteries, 3 granola bars, and 1 bag of Haribo bears in there for a big ride one time. Big enough that I forgot about that 3rd jersey in there for a couple of months...

Akta MTB Launches 24 Trail Collection
Been using the knee pads, pants, and shorts since the brand launched. The pants and shorts are no worse for wear after 2 muddy winters, and the pads fit so nicely and breathe decently well that they stay on for the climbs, rather than stashing them somewhere on myself or on the bike. The Akta stuff has proven itself so I have 0 issues recommending it to others.

First Ride: The 2024 Rocky Mountain Instinct Gets Updated Geometry & In-Frame Storage
@Keegansamonster: The alloy frames also have reach adjust cups, although these are round and pressed in, so different than the carbon frame.

Spotted: New Rocky Mountain Enduro Bike
@sherbet: Currently RideWrap and other frame wrap brands do void warranty issues related to clearcoat and paint. We cannot guarantee that the adhesive used in any frame wrap material won't affect the clearcoat since we do not manage that product. Additionally there are some requirements around paint adhesion and it might not work with the level of adhesion of the frame wrap. There are gentle ways to remove and replace frame wraps that won't affect clearcoat quality but it's not always known if these methods were employed. The entire topic is quite nuanced but it's something that we are working on currently for future approval. We currently have stickers all over the frame for various compliance and information reasons. Because we manage these stickers, any frame damage related to removing these is covered. I can't speak to the above case as I don't work in customer service but it is actively being worked on, and not being ignored at all.

Review: We Are One Arrival 170 - An Enduro Race Bike That Can Climb
@samsonr: This is an analysis done from an image grab and plotting the pivot points, so accuracy is lacking, but Andre at Linkage Blogspot shares what the rate curve for the WR1 Arrival 152 looks like: https://linkagedesign.blogspot.com/2022/03/we-are-one-arrival-2022.html The 170 can't deviate too much from this as the FT pivots can't move locations so the curve shape is likely similar. The sensitivity at the start can be explained by the low starting rate. The increased and reportedly firm mid-stroke support comes from the fact that progression rises sharply to the sag point and in the active travel zone, say from 20-70% travel. This is consistent with comments of not being able to sit in the travel as much. Rate curves that rise sharply and then fall off on longer travel bikes tend to contribute to the feeling of "too much support". The 27.5 rear wheel swap likely has some small geo effects but more so the rate curve gets translated to a less supportive, more linear shape. Again, take all this with a grain of salt because WR1 hasn't provided any accurate kinematics for proper analysis. Also lots of other small effects on the suspension characterization and dissection can be discussed but that's too much to write about here and kind of pointless without any actual data.

Video: Isaac Mcbain Shreds a Fresh Creation in 'Can O' Worms'
What this video doesn't show is the dedication to the build. I've spotted Issac's car parked up high on the mountain for long shifts, year round through foul and fair weather, over the last 2 years. Takes dedication to shovel snow off your line in February so you can get down to dirt and keep making progress.

First Ride: 2024 Rocky Mountain Slayer
The insertion depths are very long on our frames. We ream and finish to a certain depth, and after that the seat tubes widen out. At 6ft tall with a ~35" inseam, I can use a 240mm post on my large carbon Slayer frame if I wished, although my go-to length is 200mm.
