Field Test: 2022 We Are One Arrival - Efficient & Effective
@taldfind: I am in the same boat with my RM Altitude. It took a while to find my ideal setting for the ride 9. But now that I have, the bike does everything I want it to do. I think it is more about allowing the bike to be tailored to the individual rider than to the terrain.

Opinion: The Case For Being 'Over-Biked'
I know this isn't apples to apples but my 2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude is faster on the climbs than my 26" Giant Trance X. So more travel, better geometry and handling which makes the Altitude a confidence inspiring ride on the descents and no penalty on the climbs. I've actually beaten all of my personal best times previously set on the Trance. The Altitude has been a great bike for everything from amateur XC racing to Enduro, trail riding, and downhill. Can't see any downside to the increased travel.

Review: 2022 Norco Sight C1 VLT - A Long Range eMTB
38 km with 1334 meters of climbing. Nice 4 hour ride. No ebike needed. Plus I can enjoy the descent on a bike that weighs 20 lbs less.

Throwback Thursday: How Much Have Mountain Bike Prices Changed in the Past 10 Years?
What you can't put a price on is how much better today's bikes handle with current frame geometry. Sometimes I see good deals on older bikes and consider picking one up for friends to ride. But then I remember the short reach, 68 degree head angle, qr rear axle and 3 by drivetrain and I think " who the heck wants to ride that thing ". And yes I know I am spoiled. I love my 2018 Altitude...

Pinkbike Poll: Which Geometry Adjustments Would You Actually Use?
Under "how often do you adjust your geometry? " I was looking for the option "it been 3 seasons and I'm still trying to find my ideal ride 9 position." I love my Altitude, but so far I haven't found one position that suits all of my riding without compromise somewhere. Though I think that I am getting closer.

First Look: Devlin Cycles' Long Reach Trail Bike Prototype
I am very intrigued by the design concepts for this bike. I have often thought that the ideal trail bike would have a longish reach and moderate head angle. This should keep the steering light and responsive while the added wheelbase could provide some stability and keep you from feeling like you were constantly in danger of going over the bars on the steep sections. Also, I find that many current bikes have the bottom bracket so low that pedal strikes are a constant issue.
