I raced bmx as a kid but didn't so much as touch a bike for over ten years. I found myself looking for a new outlet when it wasn't snowboard season, then I found mountain biking... there's no looking back now Wink

Pinkbike's Editors Choose Their Ideal Geometry Numbers - Vote For Your Favorite
@bogey: I get that you want to ride flatter and rolling trails too and don't want to stand the whole time but you can still adapt and stand up when you see a compression coming... also, have you tried adjusting the balance between your front and rear suspension? It sounds to me like you may need to soften up your rear end and stiffen up the front a bit, or maybe play with some volume spacers?

* I don’t like the forward weight bias of steep STA bikes. I feel that it taxes the fork too much and rear wheel traction suffers. @bogey: This is an issue climbing?! I can't imagine that would ever be the case going up a hill with my understanding of physics...

The Eyecatchers 2019 - 6 New Bikes That Stand Out From the Crowd
@drunknride: I'm more worried about the welds on these bikes that I saw in the past... I see voids and potential inclusions on the below head tube welds that appear to be more than just aesthetic... I'm sorry but in my opinion a good welder has structurally sound welds that ALSO look good. I'm a PM and buyer of metal fabricated assemblies and I know I would not be happy with these welds on anything I purchase. https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/14358817/ https://www.pinkbike.com/news/ancillotti-scarab-evo-prototype-2017.html https://www.pinkbike.com/news/ancillotti-scarab-29er-bike-check.html

The Eyecatchers 2019 - 6 New Bikes That Stand Out From the Crowd
@WAKIdesigns: Well put sir. Aesthetics are definitely important even if the ugly weld is structurally sound. I work for a company that does plenty of metal fabrication and just because a weld meets code it doesn't mean it is acceptable to a customer. A good looking weld bead will give your customer peace of mind that everything is build with good quality. I very much appreciate attention to detail especially when your talking about an expensive machine that could kill me if things go wrong...

@dro-cfr: I'd bet money you couldn't even make it down that hill let alone make a pass on the inside of that muck bowl...

@fattyheadshok: I'm sure Jolanda was ripping inside lines long before she met Luca...

The inside line pass she had was sick especially since Cant went OTB trying to do the same thing to her!

Substitute aluminum for carbon and knock $1000 of the price and I would say it has itself beat...
