Have fun people
I thought it was common knowledge that the lower mount will hold a tool strap or a small water bottle.OK...I did NOT expect you to say that! Good to know for the GG riders.
Regarding Smash in 140mm travel - will the eye-to-eye length change for the shock?GG's dropped a few hints on RideMonkey regarding the stays. Nothing regarding carbon stays, but the models that aren't currently for sale are getting very minor geo tweaks. (slightly longer CS for some models, slightly lower BB for some models, more readily available shock hardware sizing, Smash confirmed changing to 140mm travel to fit better between TP & Gnarvana). I inquired about when I can order MegaTrail stays, since they're still selling MegaTrails, and was told currently available bikes' seatstay kits will be available on the website Feb 1. No ETA on the rest of changes.
My personal speculation regarding those:
8x30 rear hardware
Smash BB down to maybe ~340
Shred Dogg CS to maybe ~426, BB down to maybe ~334
Trail Pistol CS to maybe ~430, BB down to maybe ~337
While I'd happily pay a few bucks more for carbon stays, I really doubt that they will go that way anytime soon, since it would add complexity (bonding metal inserts to carbon stays) and increase production time, rather than decrease it.
