Why do you think this? Pivot sells frame/crank sets, until recently they didn't sell the super-boost this way, but now they do. All of their stuff is available this way. Why would it be any different for this?Like no frame only option which makes it a zero to me.

I didn't know they have been selling frame only. That is good news.Why do you think this? Pivot sells frame/crank sets, until recently they didn't sell the super-boost this way, but now they do. All of their stuff is available this way. Why would it be any different for this?
I didn't catch that part, I though the 68.5 HT was with 100mm fork. Either way it will be a bada$$ bikeBecause only the Worldcup edition kits of the new bike come with 100mm Fix 32 step cast forks and all the rest of the build kits with 120mm Fox 34 step-cast I meant that the geometry numbers mentioned in the video is for the 120mm version. Just my guess...
Apparently some people don't understand the difference between a 150mm bike at 35% sag and a 100mm bike at 20%.What? That's a bit steeper, but it's also a short travel bike, so it doesn't need something like the ripmo, which is steeper to make it pedal like the shorter travel bikes-geometry uphill.
It is not just about a single number like seat tube angle though. ST steepening is happening in conjunction with extending the reach. It is for a more rider forward/centered position. So it needs to be a universal change if we are also moving the front of the bike out. I also wouldn't necessarily agree that a XC 100 millimeter bike should aim to be what a modern big bike is in climbing position which you suggest. I would like it in a More aggressive climbing position. Big bikes are just getting to a tolerable/comfortable place with a 76º/77º. I have 74º on my Hardtail and would be happy with 75º, but again it is a balancing act with reach, stem length etc.Apparently some people don't understand the difference between a 150mm bike at 35% sag and a 100mm bike at 20%.
A 74 degree STA on a 100mm bike is probably steeper than a 76 or 77 degree STA on a big bike, on the same grade. People need need to stop advocating for a universal change like this. Particularly when it makes no sense.
