Giant Announces an Updated Trance X 29 with More Travel
I know everyone seems to love steep seat tube angles, but imo it hurts the appeal of this bikes. This is a 135 mm trail/all mountain bike. A bike that you should be able to ride for extended period of time over traversing terrain. It's not a winch and plummet bike, where steep seat angle suits the purpose making the long travel suspension work on the climbs. I think 75-76 degree SA would hit the spot, making the bike more comfortable on the seated pedally section (and also fit better, the gap in top tube length between medium and large is massive). Hate to rant, but I think Giant is so close to nailing the modern aggressive trail bike, Maestro is such a great pedaling platform, but the geo arms race is undermining what this bike could be.

@markcorrigan: Because I live on the East Coast, so your point is questionable (jk, jk I love riding 800 feet of elevation through tight, rock strewn minefields). But mostly, it's because the Pinkbike BC mafia has brainwashed us.

Showing these to Americans while the border is closed is cruel and unusual punishment.

Bike Check: Mckay Vezina's 3 Bikes of Crankworx Summer Series
The comment regarding choosing a medium for the shorter wheelbase is interesting, considering how the industry trend has been longer/slacker/etc. If the courses are getting techier/slower speed, then the trend seems to not be driven by racing requirements?

Must Watch: Nico Vink Rides Through Flames In ''From The Ash''
Life cycles is the thing that got me stoked on mountain bikes in the first place. That was literally the thing that made me say "I need to get a mountain bike and get in on this"

Do you just plan on standing the whole time? But yeah, I get where you're coming from. I just got a Sentinel and I'm still wrapping my head around riding the new geo. So far I'm just crashing a lot.
