    Scott Spark is 68.5*
    Giant Anthem is 67*
    Most of the others are getting slacker, but haven't passed below the magic 69* yet.

    XC race bikes are heading toward 120mm travel and the burlier bikes are getting better at climbing.

    Lines are blurring. It's an exciting time to be a bike nerd.

    Trance is 67*. Anthem is 68* Unkess you are talking about the Anthem SX, which is just putting a longer fork on the bike, resulting in a 67.5* HA.

    My XC hardtail on the left and my new AM hardtail on the right. Slightly different geometry.

    Don't just leave it on the head angle alone. There are far more differences.

    AM hardtails have sturdier and heavier frames, slacker geometry, sometimes have longer wheelbase, short stems with wide bars and big meaty tires even if those are personal preference; they are pretty much the way to go if you have an AM hardtail in the first place.
    And of course, more than 120mm of travel which is usually the limit for XC hardtails.

    Now move on.

    hahahaha yup. Same for me- injured my knee in 2010, got fat in the year it took to heal, and was off the bike for several years. It's good to be back.

    Pretty sweet! I'm interested in what you think after logging some time. I was between this frame and the Surge Evo and ultimately went with the Surge based on wheel size flexibility. Quite a few NS frames posted recently!

    Cool-blue Rhythm Hard Tail Perks

    I am so glad to be back on a Hard Tail, was tired of full squish.

    Very efficient at getting power to the ground,
    Agile and quick handling,
    Rolls nice and fast,
    Climbs like a billy goat,
    Feels and pedals light,
    Simple, low maintenance,

    But Mine has a few extra perks,

    No Hard Tail Harshness,
    Bucket loads of Traction when the trail sucks,
    I can pass riders using the crappy line,
    Excels In sand and pea gravel,
    MBA said, "Makes loose blown out corners feel like hero dirt"
    and I agree.

    27.5 x 2.8 Tires and a Head Tube angle of 66.5 degree's~
    People, you gotta try out a plus bike

    Does that count ?
    Is 120 mm travel considered short travel ?
    I thought 120-140 mm was considered mid travel ?

    I was referencing full suspension XC race bikes, not hardtails. Your hardtail is a trail bike.

    The XC race scale is 69*, but the + version is slacked out.

    Very aggressive tyres. Quite a sticky compound there.

    Moved my eccentric cromo on for this beast. Chromag wideangle m/L went a little shorter in the tt for more allroundyness and more fun. 1° Angleset and 150mm forks means 66.5° headangle. 420 chainstay with room for BIG tires. Super stoked.

    ^ How about 1 more closer up of the Orange Crush? That bike cemented my decision for a AM HT - after watching Phil Atwill slay it in a vid.

    You will love it. It's made for crushing down. Here are some more pics. If have no good final picture. At least all decals and colors are now matching the black/orange theme.

    ^ nice work on the Orange Crush. Thanks for the pics. The OC cemented the idea but I settled on a similar but different bike about 1 year ago - that said, I always liked the banger style of the OC - one of the bikes that you look at and just know you'll be having a sweet time of it.

    This is probably the right thread to ask some of the questions I have about all-mountain riding on a hardtail. I am planning on buying either a Trek Stache 7 or a Trek Fuel EX 7 this spring. I already own a Trek Superfly 5, which I love, it just beats me up on bigger days. I work and live in Yellowstone so the riding I do is really in the mountains.

    I am looking for a more capable/comfortable bike for big days in the mountains with lots of climbing, lots of long descents and lots of rocks and steep sections. The Superfly climbs with little effort from me but it's not good on big, long, rocky descents.

    I really love the idea of the Stache, I just wonder if it will really be that night and day different from my Superfly like the Fuel would be on the descents. I plan to ride both before making a decision but I would appreciate any input you guys have.

    Just picked up a brand new Surly Instigator. Added a Chromag saddle, Raceface Atlas stem and Raceface Next carbon bars. Can't wait to get out on it

    May get an Arch Mk3 and new lowers for a thru-axle up front at some point, but this is about as all-mountainy as it needs to be for around here.

    Do more riding at AL's Oak Mountain State Park(IMBA Epic), but this shot from my favorite local trail kind of sums things up-hills, roots, rocks...

    Down is always the right direction; it's just too bad there's equal amounts of up!

    You know, you'll get more trail tail if you color correct the fork and crank stickers.

    Drops take a bit to get used to but they're pretty fun... Not as easy to use when riding the real rough stuff but the hand positions make the long days tolerable...
