2017 Fall/Winter Gear Guide - 7 Men's Kits Tested
Dude, I don't even wear a jacket or even long sleeves most of the time in winter. And it's relatively pleasant most of the time in the summer. Our local trails are kinda 'meh' though. I enjoy them, but I'm probably kinda lame.

Eminent Cycles Launches the Haste - First Look
@Smevan: Dude, for sure - you can't just shorten the chainstay without paying for it. But on by the same token, longer RC means it's harder to manual and tight switchbacks will be a PITA. So you an jclnv sound like big guys, while I'm firmly 'medium' in stature. I have 2 bikes, one has about 10mm shorter chainstay than the other, and I greatly prefer the bike with the shorter stays. Granted, there are several other differences between the two bikes and I don't do any shuttling and pedal up every little hill that I descend - so that tempers my view and it's not exactly apples-to-apples. But I think a 'modern' bike with a steep seat angle and short chain stays is more fun if you're pedaling it. And I do disagree with you about Santa Cruz - the Bronson/Nomad are precisely the bikes this competes against. And I live in San Diego, I see what we ride on the trails here. If you don't ride a Santa Cruz here, then you ride an Intense. I'm a freak because I don't ride either.

@jclnv: Probably not much - I think all else equal, the longer RC gives you a longer wheelbase, which helps stability. But on the other hand, if you're concerned about slower speed handling then the longer chainstay isn't good. Compared to the main bikes this is likely going to be shopped against, that chainstay is long.

Hey, I certainly wish them luck since they're locals. However, to play devils advocate... A) this is the internet and in case you're new, you should take everything with a grain of salt; B) for this much money, it's entirely fair to have high expectations.

@jclnv: That's a DH bike, man. I think a Bronson or Nomad is a better comparison for this bike, and they're both in like the 17.0 range... In fact I think the Nomad is like 16.9. To even keep it in the Trek family, the Remedy is like 17.1" or something.

Those chainstays would be long for a 29'er... I think way the shock mounts probably takes up some real estate between the tire and BB. Best wishes for the fellow 'Diegans, though. Hope they make it! Look me up when you're designing a 29" trail bike!

Big Wheels: Autumn Feels - Video
Ya, that was really not some of the better writing I've read today. Nice riding and nice video, though.

Truvativ Announces New Descendant 35mm Handlebars, Stem
Wait, wait. Somehow, I'm thinking that might have been sarcastic. 40mm will work for maybe 1-2 years, but it's just a half-step until the next half-step Boost 48mm standard.
