I didn't like how high the seat was at the lowest position, when I rode a friends. I wish they'd made the seat tube straight and uninterrupted to the bottom bracket so that there would be more room for longer droppers.

Interrupted seat-tubes are a real bummer if you like to get your seat low and out of the way on steep terrain. Old school riders like my uncle can do anything with their seatpost up by their eyebrows, but I can barely ride off a curb without my seat dropped.
So, as one of the aforementioned riders who is totally clueless - Is he right? And also, how do I set my fork rebound correctly?
Just feel lucky that you're not an obsessive rock climber. I have a friend that clocks in at 150, and starts dieting if he sees the scales hit 153. In comparison, mountain biking is super kind to us portly protagonists.
Actually, you could consider the climbing gym as a relatively fun way to get some fitness work in when the weather outside is horrendous, or your time is extremely limited. And, you'll never experience hand pump again.
They sound like what I've been looking for, but the $280 "investment" for a wear item (with shipping) makes me choke a little. Maybe if they were warrantied for 5 years. If they were $200 shipped, I probably would have already ordered a pair.
My hard-tail is 65 degrees, and it's awesome. But that's static, with sag it's probably 67 or so? Can't really imagine riding our trails with much less.
But then your battery will be dead.
That's my bike! Cool video.
Sarcasm, right? Just checking, because it's the most white-sausage activity I've ever done.
So cool to see someone ride that trail like it should be done, rather than how I do it.
