First Ride: Shimano's Back in the Game With New XT and SLX 12-Speed Groups
For me even NX has been perfectly reliable on two different bikes. Consistent shifting, and no adjustment needed after the first couple of rides when everything has settled in.

Review: 2019 Pivot Trail 429 - A Little Bit of Travel, A Whole Lot of Fun
On paper it seems very similar to a Tallboy, would have loved a comparison.

@tonkatruck: I think the Reverb’s problems are due to design problems, not just because it’s hydraulic. We all ride hydraulic brakes and most of them are extremely reliable.

@djbutcher13: One reason why EU prices are higher is that they include value-added tax. For example in the UK it's 20 %.

Hardtails Are not Dead and 8 Reasons Why You Should Ride One
Good writeup. After moving from a trail hardtail to a short travel FS, I do not miss my old hardtail. You can ride just as actively on an FS but you also have the choice to take it a bit easier. But the power transmission part is very true, and the thought of a light XC hardtail has crossed my mind more than once...

Field Test: Trek Remedy 9.9
Agreed and I don't understand what the advantage of a tall seat tube is. I'm also 6'2" with short legs, and tall seat tubes ruled out a lot of bikes/brands when I was shopping for a new bike. Ended up with a Tallboy, a big reason was the 48 cm seat tube on XL.

Field Test: Specialized S-Works Stumpjumper 29
This is the highest end model of the Stumpy. The Kona was also the highest end model, and I think the Santa Cruz was the 2nd highest end one? In that way it makes sense, they're reviewing the best (or close to best) build of each bike.

Because you can put gummy bears in the frame. Can't really think of another reason unless you really like the geometry. The tall stack and short reach is not for me, but there are 20 other great bikes with more "normal" geometry. I think it's better to have 20 similar bikes and 1 different, than 21 similar bikes. I'm sure someone out there prefers the Stumpy geometry.
