    Yes, the seat pack has been ditched. Brachial Plexus injury has me wary of wearing packs, but I take my chances now.
    So... what's wrong with seat packs? I like mine! Is there some unknown style rule I am breaching here?

    I put it back on my road bike. Works great there, but the straps that go through the saddle rails tend to come... unstuck... over rough terrain. Style is neither here nor there, to me!

    7ft and 260lbs ungeared...

    Newest ride is a Ventana Captain Zeus. Custom frame with 29er front built around a 150mm Roxkshox Pike Dual Air. 650b rear with 140/160 adjustable travel and 17 inch chainstays. 24 inch seat tube with 27 inch top tube and 7 1/8 inch head tube.

    The most fun on a bike I have ever had.

    Also have a custom steel DH bike with 23 seat tube n 27.5 top tube.

    3rd bike is an XL 2013 Kona Process, very fun but a bit small, although top tube is 26 which ain't bad for a single X...

    6'3", 255. That is with shorts, a t-shirt, and a pair of Nikes. Who rides in more?
    I don't ride too much as I don't want to burn my muscle off. I plan to stay in the 250-275 range.

    I am riding a 2014 Trek XCaliber-4 21.5" in red - all warning labels removed

    What does this mean anyway? How much gear do you wear? I ride a motorcycle so for me geared up really does add 20 lbs to the rider but it just seems strange to hear a bicyclist say how much they weigh with gear. What are we talking about here? A 50g helmet, some gloves, shorts and cycling shoes? Maybe a camelbak?

    Might as well say I'm 220 with clothes on.

    Three liter's of water, helmet, pads perhaps, pump, patch kit, tools, first aid-kit perhaps, food, rain jacket. Not uncommon to see a 10 pound camel bak. In a sport where people are paying thousands more for a bike that's 5 pounds lighter the pack weight can be significant. Also, 10 pounds of weight can have a significant affect on shock performance and setup.

    Agreed, I generally weigh myself when I step out of the shower. There is routinely 10-20 lbs difference by the time I get dressed, put on a camelback, throw another water bottle or 2 on etc

    I suppose... I guess it just seems strange to me because when I ride I'm only going for around two hours so I'm just packing a spare tube, CO2, water bottle, a gel shot and maybe a camelbak. Pretty much an insignificant amount of added weight in my case.

    Re: clydes that ride a 29er.... what are you riding?

    Some shock/fork manf give a suggested psi for specific weights. While a few lbs may not matter much, 10-20lbs certainly can impact shock performance. Some places I ride are shorter loops that worst case scenario I am a short walk back to the car for tools. Those places I carry almost nothing and even leave food and beverages in the cooler in the car. Other places are middle of nowhere so I have a pack with multi tool, chain tool, tube, co2, pump,camelback and 2 bottles of water. Remember a gallon of water alone is 8 lbs and on a hot summer day I can easily go through a gallon. One drawback of MTB; no stores in the middle of the woods to buy drinks

    Just bought myself a Trek Marlin, first time owning a bike in 13+ years. Now starts a LONG road to learning and being capable of riding.
