Commencal Unveils 2021 Meta AM 29
@getsomesy: XL rider here, my 210mm dropper is 15mm from the minimum insertion line on a seat tube that is 509mm long. Us XL riders need longer seat tubes.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon vs. Aluminum Rims, Mismatched Drivetains, Coil Shock Sag, & How Much Travel Does a Beginner Need?
The issue is with this from the extended riding group, you go away for a riding weekend, and we dont get many of those. Alloy rim dings, keep riding all weekend, carbon breaks, no more riding for that weekend. Plus the time and expense of claiming warranty and often paying for a wheel build (depending on brand plus rim vs complete wheel purchase).

Is pinkbike sponsored by SRAM for brakes? They are not very popular around these parts except for OEM.

First Ride: Transition's New Scout Carbon
@kiksy: For a taller person, the seat tube length is simply too short to do so. With a 210mm dropper at min. insertion the seat won't be high enough when sizing down.

Spotted: Rocky Mountain's New Slayer Breaks Cover - Crankworx Whistler 2019
@Richt2000: Yet us tall people actually need seat tube lengths that long, if its any lower than that no one who is actually tall will be able to get a pole long enough.

Spotted: Rocky Mountain's New Slayer Breaks Cover - Crankworx Whistler 2019
@landscapeben: the shock position of the old slayer also meant that clump of mass was down low in the frame which is a nice handling trait. Good enough for the current nomad, most the DH bikes in the top 10 and maybe the new specialised enduro.

DH Bike Tech: Super-Sized Brake Rotors
@just6979: No, its rotor to axle, ^ see above for the formula. Wheel size relates to the moment of inertia (I = Σ miri2) the greater the mass and the further that mass is from the AXLE increases the moment of inertia. Therefore you need a larger rotor, which has a longer moment arm from the axle, to create greater breaking torque. A 160mm XC will not stop anyone in a timely manner, who is heavy, going hard, Heavy DH casings on a large wheel.
