Osprey Raptor 14 Hydration Pack - March 30, 2018, 12:29 a.m.

I've had this pack since january and really like it. Yes maybe there are too many pockets but the fit is brilliant. I like the reservoir, as though not as easy as a camelbak, its much better for cleaning and drying (have you ever removed the o ring on the screw in port in your camelbak and seen what collects there?), i may swap out the bite valve for something with more flow though. I'm not too bothered about the waterproofness as usually theres nothing in there that needs to be kep dry (usually my waterproof layer is in there, or not if its raining). I woukd like a waterproof phone pocket though! All in a great daily pack to replace my ten year old camelbak mayhem.

Ive always though wheelbase, chainstay length, head angle and seat angle to be far more usefull numbers than reach or top tube length or front centre etc.

I just did build a new 26″ bike, this was one of my options but I went for a banshee rune instead. Did feel like I had some restricted choices with 26″ for my build now though. Feels like the industry is slowly turning its back on the original wheel size. That's why I went for the banshee it leaves me the option of running 27.5 ( actually more like 26.9″ in reality) in the future.

No 26″ option and no 20mm option and as other people said just a slightly tougher pike with slightly more travel seems slightly not worth the effort.

Sorry but a quick look at the 5010c geometry reveals the frame although based in the same suspension system an overall design has different women's specific geometry, eg. The top tube on a 17″ furtado is half an inch shorter that the 5010c. So it isn't just a repainted Santa Cruz its a women's specific geometry version of it. That shortens the cockpit to account for the fact that women have shorter arms and upper bodies than the equivalent height men. Might have been an idea to maybe do some research on what made the bike women's specific before reviewing it and making assumptions based on looking at pictures.
