I've landed front heavy on many hucks to flat and not gone OTB... It sounds like you should try it more.

Field Test: 2021 Trek Slash - Ready to Race
@BenTheSwabian: These aren't gravel bikes, they aren't really engineering flex and shit into the frames of these enduro bikes.

Evil Launches New 2021 Offering - 29" Wheels, 140mm Travel
@Hayek: Yeah, the hub flanges are wider on super boost than on DH spacing. But the only thing that actually impacts, from a component standpoint, is the spoke lengths. The bigger issue is the chain-line/bb shell width/cranks/q-factor (you pick) being different from DH to SB. But most people just want to know if they get a nice set of wheels, can they put them on their next bike.

Evil Launches New 2021 Offering - 29" Wheels, 140mm Travel
Because 157mm axel spacing has existed for DH bikes for a while. When Boost was introduced, they could have just gone straight to a 157mm spacing, but why the fuck would they use something that already exists!? So instead we got years of 148mm spacing claiming to be "the perfect middle ground;" only for super boost (157) to become a thing a few years later. It feels almost like incremental steps in the name of planned obsolescence.

Wolf Tooth Launches New GeoShift Performance Angle Headset
The trigonometry works out to a maximum error of 0.218mm in the bearing alignment from ideal to the extreme end of the sizing. I don't know what frame tolerances and headset tolerances are in the headtube, but I would guess that manufacturing leads to larger deviations then the 25mm sizing.

Field Test: 2021 Norco Shore - The Freeride Tank
@DHhack: I understand that. I'm saying you shouldn't then tighten your spokes, even though the tension is lower. You risk over tensioning the wheel. It doesn't matter if its the spokes or the cushcore compressing the rim; the rim can only handle so much tension.
