Re: Advice on Titanium Hardtail - all opinions welcome.

I found that a lower STA works on a hardtail because the rear has no sag.

I have a Kona Process 29 AL/DL. It climbs well and has good trail manners for such a capable bike. I use it at the bike park, and for rocky technical trail riding. It’s a bit more work than my Tallboy3 when climbing, but still very manageable. 

I think the geo and suspension kinematics are really key to how well it performs. I find that steep SA paired with short chainstays and long-ish reach really work for me. It’s also very quiet and composed on rough dh sections. It’s a bike that loves to go fast.

Go any pics?

Not too rough in the pocket book either.

Re: Burnaby Mountain 2016

Does anyone know how the SFU trails are running these days? Are they ridable with the current snow?

Re: Race Face Atlas Jacket...maybe

I'd be surprised if it was a knock off. Race Face doesn't have the brand recognition or price point to attract the copy cats.

Who knows maybe I'm wrong tho.

Fox + Sram Stock Builds

Question for the bike industry insiders.

I have noticed that a lot of companies are spec'ing Sram components with Fox suspension these days. Is there a reason for this? I always kind of assumed that it would make more sense for the bike companies to do Sram + Rock Shox...

Re: Rocky Instinct 2018
