We all know flats are radder than clips (cough Sam Hill cough), and we all know clips give more control than flats in the gnar. But what about the efficiency thing? What is REALLY the difference when it comes to power output and energy consumption? Check inside to see!

Best of the best video action from the 2014 edition of Down Hill Taxco, including Antoine Bizet's best-trick-winning frontflip and CVD's steezy wallride. Two minutes of nothing but bangers here!

We've obtained evidence that suggests Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton were full of $h1t.

Official news from Giant that Danny Hart and Andrew Neethling are no longer on the team. Marcelo Gutierrez remains for downhill along with new, young gun Alex Marin.

No risk, no reward, right? The difference between a worthy adrenaline rush and pure stupidity is a variable that can't be quantified scientifically, so we'll let you be the judge with these nightmare-inducing bike rides. Happy Halloween Eve.

Mr. Double or Nothing runs through his hardtail in between suicide backflips and other tech wizardry at the trails.

Jamie Goldman crashed during the Taxco Urban DH race this past weekend.He suffered broken C6 and C7 vertebrae, a broken wrist and a handful of stitches. We know Jamie is a brick house of a human and will heal up stronger than ever. We're wishing you the best Jamie!

Here at Vital, it's no secret that we love the riding in Sedona - that's why we chose it as the venue for our 2014 Test Sessions. The trails are incredible, the town is fun, and the weather is hard to beat. This event should definitely be on your calendar.

Join one of mountain biking's longest-standing and most prolific photographer/rider tandems as they head out for another day in the "office". If you get lifestyle envy easily, you might want to click something else though...

With so much coverage coming out of the Taxco urban DH race, we thought it would be interesting to have a look at 3 different runs shot on 3 different cams. We wonder what that extra water on the course is, but we're glad to see at least it's there for each run... #fairisfair
