5 More Hardtails with Extreme Geometry
Thank you! Our purpose has never been to be the most extreme. We started to design from an empty paper and did not benchmark other bikes at any point. We have done loads of testing and a stopwatch is our judge. Simple ????

Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
@krashDH85: From our experience 7005 is a stronger material even from the welds. We have seen quite long lifespans of our EVOLINK frames with high-stress bikers. Evolink has been sold since 2016 nearly unchanged. We have made some changes that are more due to boost, Eagle or whatever incremental changes there has been during this timeframe. We introduced the BoostBrothers chips that do not require any bolts to change the rear end from 142mm to 147mm for example. The latest change to EVOLINK V1.3, when we changed our factory in Taiwan, was mere to improve the cable routing and add more space for a bottle. 7005 is slightly more expensive to manufacture, so that's the reason why most companies use 6061. 7005 is overall 20% stronger than 6061. 7075 is 80% stronger than 6061. 7075 is 47% stronger than 7005. (all calculations are with T6 heat treatment) 7075 is remarkable material in how much you can bend it, and it returns to original shape.

Review: The Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
We had that test and I'm sorry to let you down. The frame does not creak even though it does not have glue and the sides slide against each other. In the other hand the frame withiut glue is becomes very flexible but we have not been able to break it byt riding even though it does not have glue. 7075 is quite phenomenal how much you can bend it.

@griffinsurfboard: Our EVOLINK series full suspension frames are made from 7005 T6 Aluminium Alloy.

Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Stamina
You can read my comments to Steve from the Voorsprung video. I think he tries to oversimplify things.

@jclnv: The knee over pedal is a roadie thing because they have a fixed geometry controlled by UCI. Our steep seat tube angle is about opening riders hip angle to generate easier climbing posture and to take better use of the hamstrings and the glutes rather only the quads. Bent hip angle focuses your pedaling to quads.

Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Stamina
Please send me a private message with your name and email information and we'll see if your message was caught in our firewall? Facebook messages sent from the Polebicycles -FB page will go directly to our customer service. If you try to send private messages to me (Leo) through Facebook, I'm not answering them anymore. I have not done any customer service for ages because we have hired a team to handle them. Due to the continually increasing amount of messages, we have some delays in our service now and then because it's hard to hire and train customer service staff beforehand to the demand. I hope everyone understands the growth pain. Our goal is to answer every email throughout without any doubt. Instagram is poor for messaging as it can not be connected to multiple user accounts or link it to any professional customer service platforms. If you want any company to answer your requests, I suggest using Facebook or email. I'm sorry, but email is still the king in contacting companies. There is a corporate Whatsapp in development but it's not very common yet. We are open to ideas. How would you like to contact us? I'll just say that we are not going to put up a call center because it's not going to work for numerous reasons.

Bike Check: Joe Nation's Pole Stamina
@ondrejaugustin: It's fun to read the speculations here. The surface highs can be counted as extra material. The force concentrations of forces are near joints and at sharp edges but not on the surface shape. The tops of the machining made by ball head can be calculated as extra. In the stress tests that we have made, there is no relevance on the surface quality other than weight. If you really need to think this to reality, imagine that the bike is made of really soft material like play-doh etc. and you start pulling to the desired direction. Imagine where the "frame" starts to break apart. More machining time equals a lighter frame, but also we lose some stiffness. So, what we are doing is that we are optimizing the surface quality in an aesthetical way compared to weight and stiffness. To note, everyone knows that bike can be too stiff and there is a difference in the stiffness directions as well. All our bikes go through a series of tests that we see if the bike is strong enough for the sport. The 7075 T6 aluminum is 80% stronger than 6061 T6 that is used generally in bikes. The frame takes a tremendous amount of abuse. We can not comment on the actual weight of the frame in production but at the moment we think it's going to be significantly lighter than the prototype Stamina and the Machine. We are currently going through the last phase of the design process. There are still going to be some changes to overall aesthetics and amounts of bolts etc. We start delivering the bikes approx in two months. Cheers!

Why do you think that? It's made to go up and down and it does bith very good.
