Here is how it is being trumpeted on another internet mountain bike web site, one I do not frequent but get spammed by constantly, and whose link about this bike I clicked on because of this Vital story:

"...there’s a growing flock of riders who’ve traded their racing numbers for huge backcountry exploration, and often find themselves in primitive, nasty terrain wanting the operational simplicity of a hardtail with the comfort of a full suspension bike. I can’t think of a more capable, and – most importantly – fun bike for the job of backcountry exploration than the Stache 29+.

It brings together the best aspects of a full suspension bike, a hardtail and a fat bike into one extremely functional machine that can swallow terrain whole while allowing its rider to cover huge mileage. If the trend of riding continues in the direction backcountry exploration, then bikes like the Stache might well be game changers."

There you have it. A "backcountry mountain biking" bike. The answer to a question no one (or at least a very small, micro-niche of people) is asking.

That was incredible. For a minute I almost got teary eyed about going to Norba races.

1998 downhill looks a lot like 2014 Enduro.

Psyched for the slideshow sideshow. And while I am usually less of a dork about such things, curious about a feature on what EWS racers are racing on, as it seems to be the discipline with the broadest mix of bikes.

This is mountain bike racing. Great coverage as always. Thanks for the work break. Now I gotta go print a PDF, sign it, scan it back in and email it to accounting.
