Video: Mullet vs 29er With the Same Geometry - Which is Faster?
i honestly think that some people here have very short term memories as the bike industry just keeps tweaking geo slightly each year with a slightly slacker head angle, steeper seat angle etc and most people seem to lap it up but i cant help thinking does everyone here ride full on dh trails only.....i honestly cant imagine riding any decent distance (30 miles plus) on a trail bike with a head angle much slacker than 66 degrees and enjoy it. my 2018 smuggler is a very long bike and its got a 66 degree head angle and it feels a bit of a pig in tighter turns and i honestly wouldn't want it any slacker. thankfully it only has 120mm rear travel (which still is a lot to me) and its way lighter than most other 2021 bikes in the same category. all i tend to see now are bikes on trails with sub 65 degree head angles weighing in the region of 15-16kg with 150mm or more travel and most riders do one lap of the local trails (10miles) and then drive home. i dont blame them i mean there bikes must feel like a boat anchor on longer rides. i feel like everyone looks at the extreme ends of the sport and assumes there hardcore riders too so they also need dhf tyres on there trail bike to ride xc trails and a 64 degree head angle when in reality they would likely be much faster on a light hardtail with 100 travel for and a 69 degree head angle.

cool video and i agree that if your shorter in height and ride a dh bike i can see a 29er getting in the way but apart from that the whole reason 29ers even became a thing was because they roll over terrain better.....thats literally the whole point to them so yep if you can run a 29 setup it would surely be the best choice in all disciplines.

Cool vid. Good to show you don't need to spend a fortune to get out and about.

Review: Mavic Crossmax XL 29" Alloy Wheels
Still running a set of 2013 crossmax SX on my 26" meta SL1 and they have been nothing but amazing.

ben cathro for every bike check please.........all the others ive seen done by other people have been crap (sorry) mostly just commenting on pointless stuff like "i see you have a oneup bar fitted.....nice" like thats anything of interest unless its something different from anyone else's oneup bar.

Allowing for sag you would be sat over the rear axle entirely with a saddle that high. As soon as you point it up any hill you will surely just roll backwards down it rather than climb it...

Looks weird with that super long dropper as it makes the reach look shorter....like a 90's bike.
