Nice writeup with some interesting choices. Hadn't heard of Shred protective gear until now. I'm still not entirely sold on the current crop of "aggressive" short travel bikes. Why not put an extra 10-20mm on there and get rid of the only complaint? "Of course it's possible to overwhelm 130/120 mm of travel" They already use the same components, weight the same, have the same geo numbers and the same climbing manners as their slightly longer travel cousins, so why bother? Unless you live somewhere outside BC where the terrain doesn't require much travel. But then it also doesn't require 65° head tube angles and 470mm reach numbers. What am i missing here?
