Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
@mtnbykr05: Sorry but I think the starter of this discussion was talking about the DH bike as he said "shock compression independent of the front triangle" and "Since Zerode DH disappeared I am looking forward to pushing the buy button on this sucker!". And in the discussion it all started to blend.

Rotec is Back With a 5'' Travel Play Bike - Interbike 2017
@Waldon83: Can't a frame also help to reduce the compression a shock needs if the design is correct. Here I'm thinking about R3ACT suspension. But I had the same idea about having a shock separated from the front triangle. And is a full floater design (take Trek Remedy or Fuel EX) really independent from the front triangle since the shock isn't directly connected to the seat stays.

The Most Interesting Bike at Outdoor Demo - Interbike 2017
But Boldcycles's Linkin Trail looks nicer to me. This one here looks a bit forced.

@pinkbike: KTM Bike Industries has nothing in connection to KTM motorbikes but name and place of origin. They are seperate companies.

Everything You Need to Know About Kona's New Process Bikes
@beast-from-the-east, @tremeer023: Long wheelbase needs a steep terrain to really shine as you need to go quite fast to make it lively. I also haven't ridden neither Pole nor Geometron, but from what I've heard those who have tried either, preffer it to something shorter.

Everything You Need to Know About Kona's New Process Bikes
@tremeer023: When you are making a bike longer in reach and slackening the head angle without changing chain stay you get a bike that needs more effort to control the front wheel since you are much closer to the rear one. To avoid that you must also extend the chain stay. For example look at Pole Evolink or Nicolai Geometron, yes they aren't as fun to ride as some shorter bikes but the ride they offer is very composed and balanced.

The same geo of the 27.5 and the 29er would mean that one or the other will be a compromise. The geo looks to be better suited for the 29er since it's a bit on the steep side and would make the bigger wheel more agile and the 29er has better roll-over abilities. But not riding either yet, I can't be certain and could be completely wrong

@FindDigRideRepeat: The 165 is more of an super enduro bike, something to ride for megavalanche, than a real park bike. Tho it would probably do just fine in a park with that spec.

@paulhaysom: Yeah, I was speaking about the 2015, 16, 17 version. I don't know about the fork, since they've done the 165 version, which has a 170 fork. And the looks of the previous were meaner than those of the new one, it looked much faster.

Is it just me or is Kona the first company to make a newer model steeper. The previos Process 153 had a head angle of 65 (or was it 65.5) and now it is 66. Weird for being one of the first companies in low, long and slack.
