    Yeah I wish that too. For me as for many people the DH bike is my main bike park bike and 27.5 limits versatility there. I know the industry big wigs would really want me to have a 1 bike per trail...

    There is a difference between DH and Enduro. In enduro/trailbikes the customers embraced the change, it is done, new bikes will be in 27.5. In DH it's the first year they will try to sell it to us....

    Axle path actually allows you to approximate more than if the bike pedals and brakes well. That's also one of the reasons why I'm still to lazy to dive in the whole anti squat hype train. Though I...

    Yes but what happens after it goes up? Does it go down immediately? Does it go down fast? Does it become very forward in the later parts of the travel? Wouldn't that be hurting stability when...

    I think it's a temporary trend. For a long time most trail centers/bikeparks had very little easy, flowy trails so now everyone wants them. Once they get them everyone will want something new.

    There were very few 29ers being sold for anything but xc and marathons before the 650b craze began so stop kidding yourself.

    Also the fact that a few companies go for something means nothing.

    I think his toilets tend to ovalise when you sit on them too hard but that's a feature that supposedly gives you more toilet seat traction.
