Anyone with a 2020 PinkBike calendar who didn’t get the first one should probably just quit.

Giant Announces an Updated Trance X 29 with More Travel
@blakplastic: Have to agree here, lots of value in most of Giant’s bikes, and Maestro is a great platform for bikes that spend time being pedaled, read XC to Trail segments. My XC FS race bike is an Anthem 29 and for what it cost, it’s hard to beat...almost never use the lockout on it because of how efficiently it pedals. Also own a Ripley, similar pedaling efficiency with more travel, and I’d argue all around a more refined looking/feeling bike, but price tag reflects that too.

Field Test: 2021 Specialized Epic - The Lightest & Slackest
@Bikerburt: Agree, and listing the Brain feel among the cons when it wasn’t used on the timed laps to give it a chance to show its upside seems difficult to justify to me

Field Test: 2021 Cannondale Scalpel - Deceptively Fast
@clink83: for $12 grand, the flipping bolts should be carbon! I kid of course, but carbon rail saddles seem the norm on an XC race bike, though Cannondale and norms are rarely synonymous I guess...

Giant Launches Its Lightest Ever Aluminium Hardtail to Bring More Affordability to XC Bikes
Generally, the fork is the limiter on an XC bike, Fox 32 is only rated for 2.3, though a 2.4 does fit comfortably in my experience. I believe the SID has a bit more clearance but not by much if memory serves. Not much sense in a frame that accommodates a 2.6” rear tire and only a 2.4 up front...
