Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
i honestly don't get the whole long front centered bikes when they require extra effort to prevent the front from washing out in a turn. Sure they make you feel comfy and safe on steeper trails but cornering is everything to my riding and ive tried a longer centered bike and it was poop without having to deliberately try to put as much weight as possible on the bars. I have no such issues with shorter bikes. I confess my bike wont feel as stable at speed as these but i guess the trend now is moving away from fast turns and agileness and more about rolling straight lines faster.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
im betting the meta am 29 would be better..everything i have read says there nothing short of amazing.......oh and its several thousands cheaper. if i had the money it would be the bike i buy next. i should add ive owned 3 commencals and still have a meta sl 1 from 2013 as my main bike of preference so im totally into there products. I skipped the 27.5 ones as they didnt have a link between the rear seat stays and some people said they had issues with shock pivots because of this but this has been remedied on the meta 29.

Review: Mondraker Foxy Carbon XR 29
i think i prefer the look of the test mule (what i can see of it anyway) also bike prices are crazy nowadays. There is no way its worth spending this kind of money when there's so many equally specced cheaper bikes around. Im tired of having carbon touted as if its still some space age new tech when its been out ages and honestly i would rather have an aluminium bike with a few grand lest cost and live with a slight (sometimes less than a 50gram) weight penalty in extra weight. Also forward geometry bikes and seats slammed as far forward on the rails just looks rubbish.

i would rather have the new 29er from commencal with way better parts for the same money. This thing is overpriced and if you like the colour of this NS commencal has you covered as they already do the same colour.

Devinci Announces New Wilson 29er DH Bike
@skelldify: @skelldify: they totally will... just like 26" did. sure a few niche uses will mean some will be about but generally speaking 27.5 is dead from here on.....now you know how the 26er crew felt. marketing doesnt give a poop for what you like its all about moving you on to the next big thing.
