Great, I read this article over morning coffee and now all morning I've been thinking about how best to reintroduce a hardtail into my already burgeoning fleet (I am aware this is an extremely good problem to have as someone with no kids and free reign over my basement and garage).  I sold my Stache in 2020 after 3 years of ownership and a knee injury which meant the elevated chainstay interfered with my new pedal/foot/ankle position. The injury happened well before I sold the bike, but I lived in denial for probably half the time I had the bike. But ultimately I couldn't ride it on all the trails I wanted to and replaced it, flying back to full suspension land. Reading your account/rave/justification-for-spending-7000USD-on-a-hardtail just brings back fond memories of time spent on my Stache. I bet a normal hardtail with normally placed chainstays would be fine for me! Damn you Mark* Mayo. Now look what you're going to make me do. *Edited and corrected. Damn Mike Mayo too, whoever you are.
