Marin Releases the 2019 Mount Vision
@trillot: As mentioned, Marin was careful to measure the seat tube angle with the saddle set at an above-average ride height.

Review: Syntace's Smart-Map Gripper & Lupine's Piko Lighting Combo
These products are clearly described as over the top. The joke, was aimed squarely at the PB commenter who is equally so - touting his pool noodle tire inserts and 20 dollar Chinese lighting system as quality kit. It's safe to assume that most PB members have broken enough toys to understand where the bottom drops out of the quality vs value equation. Most of us live in a world of "good enough." Over-the-top products are entertainment - and for some, a source of inspiration to take something in their lives to eleven. There's good in that.

Yeah. Smacked it really hard riding and it's going to be a long heal.

Review: Niner's New RIP 9 RDO 29
@tgent: Pedal kickback, chain growth, pedal effect are useful Industry terms. We need common language. Back to the Commencal. The anti-squat equation includes the chain in tension as one of its calculated variables. In that sense we are on the same page. The Commencal shows that high anti-squat can be achieved without significant chain growth... a tool that designers use to firm up pedaling feel and that many refer to, in error, as anti-squat. Two separate tools in the designer's arsenal. Take away one and you can still have pedal bob without rocking back under acceleration.

Review: Niner's New RIP 9 RDO 29
@lgent Not true. Check out the anti-squat on Commencal's high-pivot DH bike. The idler roller cancels chain tension's effect upon the suspension, but its anti-squat numbers are high for a DH bike.

@Twowheelsjunkie: You have to squeeze the levers with much more authority "ask for it."

We'll be riding the 275 version too... And a back to back comparison.

Bike Check: Aaron Gwin's Intense M29 FRO
@tuumbaq: I don't think AG was trying to bash YT. In the context of his statement, he was truly wondering if his previous bikes (Specialized included) were simply incapable of the M29's small hit performance. It was one of those genuine, first time discovery moments - and a racer at his level, with the best tuners and suspension components, doesn't get too many surprises like that.
