    SBG bikes--when will the super smuggler and others going to show?

    Clearly this is the plan--the new smuggler will have this geo, with carbon and boost. Plus, I'd be surprised if other models didn't get the SBG stick.

    Think we will see this next summer? Can you wait?

    The first SBG bike looks like the Sentinel this fall. Can I wait? Yup. SBG doesn't really interest me. I don't want even steeper STA and longer WB. But that's personal based on how I pedal best and the trails I ride.
    Safe riding,

    I've been riding my Smuggler wit ha 46mm offset fork at 150mm for a while. I get what they are thrown down for sure. Not nearly drastic (not as slack). But they are correct that you can really lean on the front and you don't get that light overcorrecting feel.

    So will framesets come with a CSU? haha....or will for manufactures offer low offset CSU's for sale?

    One article that I read stated that both RS and Fox were on board, and would be offering new forks with zero offset.

    They'll probably 'offering' them on specific transition models and any other complete bike that wants to use them.

    they might be as 'offered' to buy aftermarket as metric shocks are

    For sure you will be able to buy them....maybe not on sale when more common fork models get blown out. If you buy a complete bike and don't change major components it doesn't matter. If you build from a frame up it may cost a bit more.
    Safe riding,

    I had some difficulty adjusting to the long reach of my Scout. I learned how to adjust the way I rode it to keep the front end weighted. This sounds like an interesting change. Keep the reach, but get your weight on the front wheel easier. Win win!

    Will people who are 6 feet tall start riding mediums? Or just run a 30mm stem, which is clearly more their intention.

    We got sold down the river on Metric shocks. What's better is that the current shocks were all metric sized to begin with.
