    That's what a lot of testers said about the Megatower. That must be why I crashed - I was trying to change direction!!!

    Yes - a 51.7" long bike (XL) that weighs a ton and has huge gyroscopic devices on either end probably won't be described as "nimble, agile and quick." Especially with 17.7" chainstays and a 63.7° head angle.

    Bikes of this size are probably better suited for big dudes. I can't imagine trying to adapt to beasts of this size if you are under 6'0" tall. I wonder how @Sidewalk manhandles his Enduro with similar numbers. Of course, he's a better rider than I.

    Mine is the last generation, much more nimble than the new generation bikes.

    There's one more reason I don't believe this new bike could ever be for me. To get 160 out of the triangle, they had to make the stays long. Some will argue that that geo was intentional. The results are hard to dispute, though.

    Preach on! I’m a short stay guy too for sure...425mm on Godzilla.

    435 or 445 on mine. My choice! 435 is plenty short for an XXL 29er - 17.1"

    that is a really sweet feature...maybe an XXL Mega down the road for me if/when I destroy Godzilla and/or Smashy...if GG eventually makes a size 5, that would get more complicated....
