I liked internal routing until swapping bits around all the time became a necessity. Now I drape the brake hose over the bike and tape it roughly in position with packing tape.

Still not interested in wireless. It means there are now two batteries to do one thing. No.

Yuck. 180 is too much for a hardtail. 62 degree head angle, probably 70 degrees at bottom out...

Are the Sick ones 62° with a 180mm fork, or something shorter?

good point. they suggest 140-160 mm odd, so, yeah... something shorter. meaning, this chromag with a 'regular' fork, would be a bit steep, no?

Rule of thumb used to be about a degree per inch of fork travel

And here's pinkbike showing the Doctahawk isn't a total outlier.

Tiny? It's a 29er that looks like a 27. It's probably fucking huge.

Main pivot is a four bar linkage. Making the whole thing a 6 bar. For no apparent advantage.
