Trek Session 29 vs 27.5 – First Ride
@stefanfresh: It would be super difficult to put 210mm travel on a 29" wheeled bike using Trek's current suspension design. There just isn't room without making the chainstays super long. You'd be buzzing the seat, your arse and the BB would be scraping the floor. You might be able to make it work on XL frames where you have a lot more room to play with, so 6'0+ riders could be in luck. Otherwise though you'd have to completely redesign the suspension design and ain't nobody got time or money for that. Trek, who are a huge company, don't even want to invest in a custom front triangle for these 29 bikes, never mind redesign the suspension design completely. They just won't sell enough of them to recover the R&D and tooling costs.

Does Boost Spacing Really Make a Stronger Wheel?

@LadLife: Heal up good bud. Sounds like it could have been way worse.

You could do a banging trip if you got the tunnel across from Calais to Dover, rode the surrey hills, then Wales (BMCC, Revolution, BPW) and then north to Scotland and ride Fort William!

Brendan Fairclough mentioned recently about there being a high barrier to entry in downhill (the fact you need a couple grands worth of bike to get started). The bike industry tends to focus a lot on the high end. Would you guys like to see more effort being put into making good cheap downhill bikes to get more kids into the sport?

Can Loose Dog explain what happened with his crash the other day? I saw on instagram he'd damaged his back.
