Review: Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29
IMO that's a great looking bike... but no XL. Bummer... Spec doesn't get much credit for the innovation they have brought to the game. Long line of Evo builds pushing trends for trail/enduro bikes.

Pinkbike Poll: Would You Rather Have an Air or Coil Sprung Shock on Your Trail Bike?
Interesting poll/comment thread. I'm surprised so many are so behind air shocks. I can see air for your fork, no leverage ratio to work with and more sensitive to set up, etc. (my opinion anyway) But for the rear shock I'd have thought in recent years more people have seemed to go back to coils, going all EnduroBra, etc. :) But for real, now that most coil shocks have some kind of dampener lever for super long climbs/when your legs are tired, etc. I'd have thought cost/weight/getting the right spring would be the only negatives to coil these days. (for sure that initial spring set up kinda sucks as most often seems like your stuck ordering springs...)

The poll wasn't "what shock would you rather have on your demo fleet"? Impatient customers doesn't really relate to whether coil is better or worse?

Is that an old picture in your profile? You don't look that heavy...? :) It's not just the coil, it's the suspension kinematics/leverage ratio. For sure rider weight and the coil shock build/tune.

2019 UCI MTB Rulebook Fixes DH Finals Start Order, Allows For Mismatched Wheel Sizes & More
AHA, this is why all the 78 degree seat posts!! So you can run a 27.5x2.6 as a back tire and still have a reasonable seat tube angle... :) (while dragging your pedals) After all the scramble to get racers on 29er's last year they get to repeat updating rear triangles/linkages to get racers on smaller rear wheels to find out of that's faster. (I'd guess a lot of people must think so for the UCI to change the rules???) At least most of us will have wheel sets ready this time when the new range of reverse mullet bikes start coming though... I saw FOES was pretty happy! :)

First Look: Nukeproof ARD Tire Inserts
NICE! If I'm gonna get charged 8000% markup for a pool noodle floaty thing it should at least get squirted out a playdoh thingy to make it the right shape to protect my rim... (no really, huge improvement in design over some of the others, cost is reasonable in comparison and weight too)

Propain Launches New Tyee Carbon & Tyee AM Carbon
@JohanG: Horses for courses I guess. But if your terrain is that flat than does an Enduro bike like the Tyee really even make sense?? If you have even moderate hills you benefit from the climbing position. The intent is the EFTT doesn't change with steeper seat tube angles because there is more reach. Bonus, you can always run a set back post/dropper with the seat at the back of the rails and size down and retain the same effective geo you have now if you desire... I guess buyers like yourself is why Jamis made the new Propain and Hardline the way they did. (course using the name Hardline for that bike is still stupid... :) ) Cheers!
