    Was thinking about checking out a Salsa Rustler at the local shop so I called today. They said sorry, don't have any and I would have to wait until the 2021 stuff is released so I think your thread is timely.

    So I have had a 2012 Kona Honzo Size M I have run since a SS since it came out.

    The 420mm reach feels short to me and my size L Trance has a 468mm reach and feel spot on!

    Kona released 4 new Honzo models today, 3 with sliders.

    Kona Honzo ST - frame only.

    It's wild to me that for once there are like 4? (Honzo ESD, Sutra ULTD, Shonky, Process X) Kona bikes that I'm actually stoked about and wish I could justify owning. Feels like 2008 when I wanted a Stinky, a CoilAir and a Jake the Snake. What a time to be alive.

    i really do like the looks of those Commencal bikes... the geo just appeals to my eyes. Really want to try one out at some point this year.

    The geo definitely sucked me in. The concerns being, will the head angle be too slack(first time saying that and would i consider a works headset for +1?) and will 36+lbs be ok. Should be fun somewhere

    It'll be fun when it matters

    Now is that 36 lbs as they ship it to you? Or is that after you trim the fat on what they ship?

    Thats another concern. Im hearing a lot of good things on them but the most recent thing i heard is creaking stanchions at the crown interface. Fingers crossed thats not a wide spread issue. Give it a go i guess. Hear lots of good reports on the zeb as well

    No change from 2020 as far as what tightens my shorts the most. Still want something from GG.

    The Trance X 2 looks like a great value. Two things caught my eye though: The photos show SLX cranks, but the specs say MT510. Slight downgrade? And the specs list a KMC X-12 chain. I'm not seeing that chain as being fully compatible with Shimano 12-spd hyperglide+.

    Depending on how the fall/winter goes I think I'll be buying a Transition Spur.

    Seems like $6k pre-order deal on XX1 is pretty sweet.

    They need to do an update so that I can get a v1 carbon Megatrail frame for cheap.

    Pretty sure the XO1 is the 6k deal...but just asked Transition as to availability and mediums won't be around until February supposedly. Fuck, take my $$$ now.

    Fuck.

    Wish I had just taken a risk and pulled trigger during the first week.
