First Look: Ibis Oso - Not Just an Electric Ripmo
They must measure the effective seat tube angle about 100mm above the BB. That is one of the slackest actual seat angles I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t even consider it even if I could get over the looks or the price tag.

Bike Check: Caleb Holonko's 27.5" Kona Process X
@louiefriesen: Totally agree 120% The problem is the people with the experience to know the difference like you and I and most people here in the comments of PB, vital etc make up a tiny proportion of sales. Most people just buy what they read is cool or what a shop salesperson tells them is cool. And that is based on marketing/sales cycles from big corps. My favourite brands are Transition and Hope, because they give us options...

Bike Check: Caleb Holonko's 27.5" Kona Process X
Yea, I’m happy if we get to compromise with (truly) mullet compatible frames. But if I am forced to to move to 29 front and rear then I won’t ever buy another bike...

Bike Check: Caleb Holonko's 27.5" Kona Process X
@ratherberidin: Yea totally. When I had the OG pivot firebird I found it so frickin high up in the air. It cornered badly and on steep stuff felt like the forks were turning in under you all the time. I chucked some 27.5 wheels on front and back and it was amazing. Rode it like that for a few years...

@louiefriesen: Any mullet can be a full 27.5 bike by just upping the 29er fork airshaft by 20mm. And if you want 37mm offset 27.5 fork, add a 10mm stack crown race and use a fork with 30mm more travel.

Opinion: The Pace of Change in the MTB World is Slowing Down, and I'm All For It
@fjopsys: Agree. I’m lucky enough to be able to afford several bikes at the same time. And my favourite? Transition scout with 27.5 wheels and 430mm chainstays...
