Would have been cool if they had done it blind. Tester's show up, aren't told which bike has new goodness. Let them rip bikes back to back and see if they notice anything. Otherwise I'm suspicious of placebo.

Hey Guys, thought I'd add a few comments on the technical details of the bike. The upper shock hardware is designed with an inner sleeve (small part #7), like a thru-axle front hub, to prevent binding if the upper shock bolt is over-torqued. I've attached a photo of the...more

Gee won in Cairns in 2014 on borrowed shoes; now Rachel won in Lourdes on wrong-size spare shoes... has anybody tried hiding Dan's shoes from him to see what might happen?

Totally dig the podcast, the super in depth test session reviews, and interviews like this one. Glad Vital is publishing long form content. Vital is really upping their game compared to other mtb media

Looks like that test track Curtiss Keene was dialing in his suspension on in Trinidad Colorado? Funny stuff

For me as an average joe, its not the weight that sells me on air over coil, its the how much easier/cheaper it is to tune an air fork. Tuning a coil sprung fork is a lot of parts to buy and install and uninstall in iteration until you find your sweet spot. With air, just you have to put an shock pump on it. For me thats a trade that is worth making. If you're one of the most highly supported athletes in the sport, ya have your mech and the ohlin's guy help you sort out a coil fork

What a perfect username.

Yes, the placebo effect is a real thing, especially when you're discussing minor changes to the same product. To say that 99 out of 100 riders wouldn't know they had an entirely different fork on the front of their bike is a ridiculous claim, however, and I'll take...more
