Check Out - March
I made a thin, lightweight sleeve for mine with ripstop nylong (tent material). Totally worth it - in the winter I used to cringe every time I dropped the seat and felt the gritty sludge grinding the stanchion of the post. Now I can go multiple seasons between service and it looks brand new when I open it.

SRAM Announces New Budget-Friendly Guide Brakes
@TheOriginalTwoTone: I haven't bled my original generation Guide R brakes yet. Starting to feel like it's time, but they're not terribly spongy.

I don't understand the hate for this bike. I think it looks great.

I've been experimenting with different crank lengths, and 165mm is too short for me. These cranks have only six rides on them and are in near-new condition: only a few minor nicks in the paint (see pics). The 32T chain ring is brand new and never used - I was using a different chain ring while trying these cranks. I paid $217 plus shipping/tax/duty for them: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/en/shimano-xt-m8000-single-11-speed-chainset/rp-prod138437 Asking $160 firm - that's already quite a discount for six rides.

Too Long? Too Slack? Not Enough? – Pinkbike Poll
@tremeer023: I'm also 6ft tall and just tried putting 165mm cranks on my '15 Trance to reduce rock strikes. It was just too weird. I felt like a circus bear peddling the little tiny bike around. I stuck it out for about six rides, and admittedly it got a bit less weird over time. However, what really killed it for me was that I had to raise my seat by 1cm to compensate for the 1cm shorter crank coming from 175mm. It reduced the effective range of my dropper post, and raised my seated center of gravity enough to really mess up the handling of my bike. I've now gone to 170mm as a compromise and I'm very happy. It's shocking how much difference a few millimeters here or there can make to a bike.
