@olibluegoat: I have the 120mm rear. I’m not sure what you mean by agile and quick-handling though - for my tastes, I think my bike would be a great XC bike with my carbon wheels and lightweight tyres swapped in you could get close to 10kg with a dropper post (once I’m a little fitter I may try the local XMB races) - the power transfer is impressive, even without Twinloc, and then you can open it right up on the descents. You can influence so much with your own setup that I can’t really make sweeping statements about how you would find yours though - I’m sure someone in the UK could get you a test ride.

@polarproton: I'm not sure I should admit this on Pinkbike as I'd still consider myself a downhiller at heart (I just got back from a week in Morzine with the big bike), but I do weigh myself most weeks, shave my legs and know what my FTP is...

@friendlyfoe: My bars are at the 1 degree marker on the stem, so no, fairly neutral.

@jamesbrant: Ha, I’m not sure about major skills!

Yes, they do. I was at KMC a few years ago, although they were super fussy about shooting production so the story never ran.

Yes, it can, but I doubt it’s something Formula will ever recommend publicly as they don’t want to tread on anyone’s toes.

@iqbal-achieve: I disagree re: the tipping saddle - I spent a few days with the Specialized Wu post last year and I did not like it at all, the saddle kept getting in my way.

I prefer the kinematic on the Scott - the current Orbeas (I have had an Occam and a Rallon) tend to be much more linear. The Occam had good midstroke support, which helps you play around, but suffered at the start and end of stroke, lacking a little sensitivity and a lot of progression.

Richie Rude doesn’t seem to have had a problem with the Renthal stems.
