Another fan of dropper forks here. jflb is right on. It helps to have a bike with a ever so slightly too tall BB that's true. Heck I keep my dropper fork down 80% of the time cuz I like the quiicker steering, I only raise it for serious downs. My buddy has the exact same bike and its clearly easier to climb steep tech on a lower fork.

NWT3K Custom Shorts and Jersey - Review
When someone says custom clothes, I assume they mean custom tailored for your measurements. Can't get that excited by some color swaps. Really with all of our gadgets and apps how come custom tailored clothes off the internet isn't a bigger thing ? I remember reading an article 10 years ago that said you'd walk into a store and get laser scanned and receive custom cut cloths of a particular style a few days later, and maybe eventually cut and printed right there in the store. Laser scan is probably not necessary, but just sending in your measurements and getting correctly sized clothes is the next big apparel revolution IMO, surprised its taken this long. YOu can get semi-custom dress shirts (forgot the url but easy to find) but other than that not much.

Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
I spent 3 days demo'ing a Nicolai geometron with 520 reach and 35mm stem. My home bike is a large E29 with 445 reach although I ride it with a 75mm stem as its used for XC. I'm 5'11" with 32" inseam (short legs, long torso). The bike had some fun things about it, but overall I didn't like the loooong geo. While it monster trucked good up general pfaff when climbing, when it came time for real tech I just wasn't able to shift my bodyweight back and forth to get rear wheel traction and donkey punch up obstacles. I had the same problem on downhills, if I had to start jumping tracks or monkey humping around the bike to get it over stuff it was just too much of a bus. It was as this review says, super fun for swooping down arcing switch backs and it was fun to turn on fast open stuff and handled speed chunk very well. But here agian when inching down very steep loam slopes, I just felt like I couldn't hop the bike up into a better line or rear steer as well. So just a data point to say, while my next bike will be in the 465+ reach range (so I can run a short stem if nothing else) this new long geo is good for some and not others, so if you are getting carried away by the new long geo hype, make sure and demo it extensively to make sure it works for you.
