Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike Have More or Less Suspension Travel?
@Austink: I agree. It would definitely be a pain to change it daily. I always think it's going to be quick to just swap my fork out or to do some type of maintenance but then see that it took two hours longer than planned. I love to tinker but it can be a time suck and more time away from actually riding. I do still wish I could make some smaller changes, like you mentioned, for days at the bike park and flow trails or for days that are going to have really technical climbs and descents.

Pinkbike Poll: Will Your Next Bike Have More or Less Suspension Travel?
I live near tamer trails where I use the short travel Ripley with a Fox 36, when I go up North or travel to bike parks and rowdier trails I bring my Bronson. I couldn't bide by the whole jack of all trades, master of none mantra. Instead I built each bike to be the right bike for whatever I am mainly riding. Bikes these days are incredible but we're still not to the point where a 170mm 29er will climb quite like a Ripley or a Ripley will descend like that long travel 29er. I can't wait until they perfect the modular design, kind of like GG, where you just have extra stays, wheels, shock and forks to setup the bike for whatever you are riding that day.

GT Releases New Force GT-E eMTB
@NYShred: I agree that all should do what they love and not be a dick about it. Although, when I was kid learning to skateboard in the early 90's the older kids were a dick to me and other young kids as well. For good reason though! Kids were kooks and had poor etiquette when it came to getting in people's way and snaking runs. I learned from them and it taught me to respect the spots and the sport as a whole. Yeah, some were too harsh but I wish people were a little more like that now. I go to skateboard parks now and it's a zoo with kids scootering all over and not one with any type of etiquette. It's lame. There should be gatekeepers and people trying to keep their sports pure. If we didn't we would instead be seeing more than just the one kook blasting AC/DC from his Bluetooth speaker, the trails would be full of e-bikes blasting by you with no consideration, slow groups not letting people pass and just another fun sport sanitized just in the name of making it more "inclusive".

@CascadeComponents: Anyone running your Bronson link with a 29 front end? I think that would be the perfect bike for me...if it worked.
