    You definitely want a dropper post, either upgrade after or make sure the bike has one new. Personally I am a bigger fan of fox components than Rockshox. Some people swear by the Pike though, but the new Fox Rhythm Forks feel great. My buddy just got a 5010 Aluminum and I like it because I like shorter travel bikes for any type of XC, All Mountain and light Enduro stuff. The short travel bikes now are actually very capable. I posted this video before, but its me hitting a bunch of decent sized features on my 140/120 trail bike that I normally ride with my DH bike.



    It sounds like you want a bike to do everything though instead of multiple bikes. The Norco would be better than the 5010 in that case, but I still think there are better "do it all" bikes out there. My buddy actually rides his patrol for xc riding and he does fine with it and I have a couple other friends that have a Evil Wreckoning and they say it pedals like a short travel bike...


    If you were going to buy 2 bikes, I'm not sure I would agree with Dodge about getting both the Patrol and 5010. I would get something with more travel like a Nomad, Pivot Firebird or YT Capra. Or just a DH bike ;)

    If you take the front wheel off most bikes will fit inside the bed of a DCSB with tailgate shut. I have fork mounts screwed to a board mounted on the bed floor to carry two 29-ers. Low profile if you have an open bed, and in my case they even fit under my canopy with droppers down. There are pro's and con's ... it can be a hassle to remove and replace the wheel ... but it does make the bikes much shorter and lower.

    Im definitely not purchasing 2 bikes right now but im considering going with the 5010 c and upgrading the fork to the helm. Or something that i can run in the 150mm range. Also change up the rear shock to a db air. Down the road anyways. I would love to get on a frame like the evil bikes or yeti to see how they feel. But those bikes are out of my budjet.
    And yes if i do go the 5010 route i will be ordering a dropper that day. I like the smaller snappy feel on the 5010 then some of the larger bikes ive tried..i feel like i just plow through stuff on small trails with bikes like the bronson. I definitely dont want to take the fun factor out of the small xcish style trails. I really am beginning to think theres not a do it all mtb that you arent going to have a to sacrifice something.

    Weve been getting rained on steady, so not much trail riding. I sold one of my bikes to pay for the new Yeti sb6 carbon. So to break it in I took my friend and messed around urban style for his first time in a minute on a mountain bike. Also we found the mystery machine! "Them pesky kids!

    Anyone running a bed rack and an RTT in conjunction with a tailgate pad for their bikes? I'm going to be pulling the trigger soon on a setup, and I'm trying to gauge how low of a rack I can get away with, and still fit the rear wheels, etc. under the rack with the bikes over the tailgate. I'd prefer to get a bed rack that's lower than roof height, maybe in the mid-height range, to keep the RTT at or below the roof line.

    I've seen a couple of pictures of this setup, but I think most have been custom racks, not prebuilt. Worst case scenario, I can load my bikes up and measure how much clearance I'd need as a minimum, but figured I'd ask the collective and see if there's a known working setup.

    Picked up the RakAttach swing out for my Kuat... game changer for using the back of your truck with a bike on it.

    It was 375+30 shipping. You have to email the guy from Rakattach and they fab up the rack to swing out whichever way you prefer. It holds up to 350lbs if I remember correctly and you can use it with other hitch mounted accessories. However, if you're in the market for a whole new bike rack, Rockymounts recently came out with a swing out platform rack.

    I know someone else posted this a while back, but I confirmed this weekend that the new Kuat NV 2.0 allows you to drop the tailgate with the rack in the untitled position. I have the old style Kuat like co4runnin and the tailgate will hit.

    I have the old one and definitely couldn't drop the tailgate, and my wide bars would bump the topper in the closest position. The RakAttach moved the rack and bike far enough away from the car, that it's no longer an issue. That being said... the swing out also adds an extra 8" of length to the Tacoma.

    My bars hit too, 800mm does not fit with a topper. Do you see any additional bounce or whip with that extra 8" in the hitch length? Some of the roads I access are not exactly paved! Of course, looking at your pic, it does not look like you take paved roads either.

    It came with hitch tightner u-bolt (similar to This ) that makes it super sturdy with no wobble and the Kuat tightening system keeps the bikes nice and snug to the RakAttach.

    Definitely agree... but its actually not terribly steep when you consider it's made by a guy in Park City, UT, USA and it's still cheaper than a set of sliders while being much more complicated.
