    The XCL has R.C. fooled...

    into believing it has six inches of travel. I was reading the Happy Trails section in the August '08 MBA; in it RC has a story of riding with Andreas Hestler and Wade Simmons. He mentions all three are on "bicycles with at least six inches of suspension... Simmons and Hestler rode RM Slayers and I brought my Chumba XCL".

    I know this was a slip and he knows the difference from his previous reviews of the XCL. I just thought it was kinda neat that the lack of having an extra inch of travel wasn't obvious enough for him to remember it when writing the article.

    I saw that too, but was wondering if maybe he had a prototype that did have 6". I really never notice if I have 5" vs other bikes that I have riden with more. It definately feels like more than the inch it has on my Trek Fuel EX, but who's counting?
