Added reply in a thread Why are there still no 200mm+ Enduro bikes? 2/26/2020 9:40 AM

I'm riding a 2017 Orange 324 with 200 mm rear travel set up as a AM/FR/EN/DH bike (or mountain bike); it also has a 212mm Vecnum Nivo Dropper, 32:9-46t cassette on 150mm hub. I have had it set up with 27.5 front and rear with a Fox 40, but it was a bit

Orange Bikes Stage6 / Far From Home Edition

the chainstays seem like a good length. its nice that at least a couple companies are bucking the short chainstay is the only option trend.

I would like to know what size this bike is, how tall you are, and how you feel about how it corners.

At least some company is doing bikes with longer chainstays and uninterupted seat tubes. My current bike has 459 chainstays and 395 reach 27.5/29 wheels, and there is not too much weight on the front wheel. I think 469 chainstays paired with 64ha and 435 reach for a medium would be pretty ideal.
I think it is silly of you to talk so surely that this will be too much weight on front wheel, when youve never even ridden such a bike. Based on all your comments i doesnt seem like you have a good understanding of how bike weight distribution works.

Love long bikes but 1272 in M is ridiculous.

well in that „internet was wrong, short chainstays suck“ thread you did some math and stated short chainstays make a rider have to weigh the front. i dont see how that is so different to my post. on a yeti sb150 size XL the FC/CS ratio exeeds 1.9 and makes you have to weigh the...more

as a tallish person i would actually like to see more brands extending their chainstays. no matter how many pushups you can do - your legs will always be stronger than your arms and can take quite a bit more beating. side benefit would be less shaky sight.

Durr! But the same load and failure test could be applied and would be a totoally relatable comparison. Foam is failed and downgraded if its compressed badly or split, procore is failed if tube deflated, pinched or casing breaks/cuts. Either is degraded if it fails to protect rim or tire. Both can be weighed comparitively.

You cant compare this to changing a dirtbike tire, its apples to oranges. Realisticly and relative to changing bicycle tires including tubes, all foam inserts and Procore, Cushcore is a most difficult and real pain by all honest accounts.

Procore is the OG tire insert, for the same use, same benifits, that can be tested the exact same way; so i’m not sure why your making excuses for it’s exclusion from the test!

thats gonna depend a bit on rim width. if the procore liner doesnt baloon over the endge i guess thats possible. ive cut single wall tires with procore on 34mm internal rim but never rim damage, and you can ride out on procore no problem.

sorry to be longwinded but mtb fit is a very variable due to terrain, intent, and biodiversity, with constant kinesioligic parameters; which mus be addressed as a whole rather than such grossly monochromatic lone number.

what are your body proportions, build, years riding and best race result?

same seat to bar only makes sense if you only ride on kind of bike! for example downhill or dj bikes are typically going to have a much shorter saddle to handlebar distance for agility or rearward position, compared to something like an xc bike where ... more »

36" inseam + 1" for shoe and pedal = 939mm 939-175(crank)= 764mm 30" 764-560 (seat tube)= 204mm 8" revive 185 min exposed while extended is 226.7mm + seat = ~250mm seat stack. so 204mm left and your seat takes up 250mm more, that would mean your seattube

cool
