They’ll love it!
They'd be on them tomorrow if I gave in but I need to get them MED's and they are both 155cm'ish, the dropper length may be a concern, they have ridden my Large SC and dont look too clumsy but thats with a 150mm dropper near slammed. Med would be fine now probably... but we have Derby/Maydena in 8 weeks, their current bikes fit them really nice at the moment so I should really keep them on those bikes. They just got new Fox 34's fitted to the Konas and they are handling them really well... must not give in to temptation.

I am looking to get my boys a FS sometime next year, they were looking at Canyon Spectrals but I showed them the A3 yesterday and I'm pretty keen to get them from a local family owned bike shop.
Similar price and a good looking bike. We'll see come the new year, they wont be long till they are grown out of their Kona's.

No worries, will do. They are size small Kona Kula Scandiums, Fox 34 130mm forks, reverb droppers, SLX/XT drivetrain, Mavic Crossmax wheels ect... will let you know.

The Last Glen is out.


Single pivot link driven. Might even get @moorey interested.
Been out for ages. It's winning plenty of awards, as did the coal and clay. No dw maestro bullshit, curves antisquat etc are bang on, excellent weight, 6069 and post factory work really gets things right. The frames NEVER go on sale. Ever. Not once in 12 months. Paying retail on something is against my grain on something of this price. But nothing else has stacked up for quality, materials and qualities.

And another contender in the high single pivot gearbox stakes...that makes about...3 doesn't it.

This stuff makes selecting a new bike tough... Sherpa Cycles bringing the mini occy strap main stream.

As is often the case, the alloy models look so much cleaner and neater than the carbon.
Could definitely see myself on one of these. Reminds me of my doomed suppressor a lot.
Yep, a few nice bike out this year, even the Spec Enduro looks great. Everything has gone really slack, its spoiling us with line choice... dont know where its going to go in a few years but making basically any bike pre 16-17 feel twitchy without anglesets and offset bushes.

A3... the price has me as I'm x 2.

X 2 bloody hackers, just bandaged #1 up last night with a leg and back friction burn, now back tonight with a shoulder friction burn and gouged out friction burn to his elbow (pain tomorrow) and hip. #2 went bicycle Trick or Treating came back with pockets full of lollys and no fucking NEW Fox gloves.

Bloody endless in my house.

Looking forward to teenage grandkids till I can laugh my shit off.... actually would be nice if I see teenage grandkids ;)

On top of my list!

Very nice. Hopefully they make an XL.

Making genuine enquiries about a Sight A2 for my lad. Frame and wheelsize are doing my head in. His 2019 Sight is medium, he is at the upper limits of it's size but still a good fit. New Sights have gone up a size. So do I go another medium, or large... the large reach is longer than my XL Range, so current thinking is a Medium.
Then wheelsize.... he is currently on 27.
Thinking stay with that. But 29er koolaide...

What do the cool kids think?

Go the longer bike, and 29’ wheels.

If you size down his bars will be in his lap when he’s pedalling. Is he still growing?

Also don't be foooled the geo between the 29 and 27 are not the same (even though the PB article would have you believe they are). The stack height on the 29 frame is higher by around 17-18mm so the "effective" reach will be longer (by 8-9mm) on the 29 for the same bb to bar height.

I'd go the smaller wheel for a younger fella. 160mm 29er is a big bike, regardless of how good the geometry is.
