Refreshing to finally find a current and realistic review of the RM Powerplays, seems there is little out there since the 'coffee grind' noise issues from a couple of years back that look to have been addressed somewhat (as long as you keep things lubed). Being as the new Bosch and Shimanos have knocking noises going downhill, seems we have to choose a noise compromise somewhere.
Intrigued to know whether you had the choice of a L vs XL. RM puts us 6 footers at the max end of a Large and the low end of an XL. As its next to impossible to find bikes to try sizing this year, no demos etc, interested to know what swayed your decision to ride XL and are you normally riding XL bikes due to leg length?
