Good article, great perspective. I totally agree that there are many people that would love these and there is no reason they should be "blocked". MTB is about having fun, first and foremost. I would love to rent one of these one day and give it a good crack on the local trails.

Man, some of those group jump shots at the end look ridiculously fun! Got to get back there soon, lots of new things to play with

Isn't that what Linkage X3 is for? I'm sure most of these designs would be mapped in the database.

Hi Leo,

The top tube length of the medium is 602mm, which I think is on the longer side for medium sized bikes. I'm 175cm and like my bikes a bit on the longer side. The medium Anakin is maybe slightly shorter than the large Nomad. I was really happy with the medium size Anakin.

Added a comment about product review First Ride: Hope Technology Pro 4 Hub 1/4/2016 3:03 PM

I like my Hope Pro 2's, but the only "issue" I have is the engagement. I was really hoping that the new hubs would be even less angle than they are. My Profile Elite hubs are still the nicest engaging hubs I've ever owned but the Hope build quality is better. And the Hope price is waaaay better

Added a comment about feature MTB Bucket List - 9 Places Sven Martin Says You Should Ride Once in Your Life 1/4/2016 2:52 PM

Yeah, Peaking Ridge, and one of my favourites: Whites Bay. That Nelson/Blenheim area is epic! Can't wait to go back there and do some more of those trails.

Nearly did Old Ghost Road earlier this year, but 85km by myself sounded a bit daunting. My bucket list would probably mostly consist of NZ trails... but then again, I am comparing with Australia which is way behind when it comes to MTB. Although, Mt Buller Alpine Epic would probably make it onto my list as well just because of the 9km descent at the end

My current bike. The Zerode G27.5. I owned a G1 as well and this was the first time ever that I bought the same brands updated version of a bike I already owned, I love it that much!

Rampage is the most gnarly thing that you can do on a mountain bike, but this looks less "safe".

I cannot get my head around the speed these guys are going in essentially a maze of concrete, steel and sharp edges with dogs and protesters running around at any given time. Crazy!

I think the bikes get a hell of a hammering in this type of riding as well.

Hello Johan,
It's a while after the event but your story makes interesting reading and didn't have much trouble provoking the anticipated response in the comments section, which I daresay would have been exactly the case in another age when snowboards first made...more

Do you realize how dumb you sound? You are not allowed a pedal assist motor in the bike (which means you still have to use your muscles to get up the hill, it just uses less of your energy) but it is perfectly fine to use a lift or vehicle to get to the top?! Why don't you start a website called LiftBike or ShuttleBike and go post your stupid comments there...

Love it!!! Finally some non European company gets it. There was hate for suspension when it first came out, in fact there is hate for EVERY new mtb trend when it comes out. I don't get it why there are so many negative nancy's out there but either way it seems the companies are seeing through that rubbish and noticing there are tons of people that think progression is a good thing and just want to have fun.

I would love to see a more aggressive bike in this category. If pedaling up is made easier, I'm willing to have the bike be full DH spec for the pedal up so I can seriously bomb the down. Good times!!

I'm all for it. 20+ years of hard core MTB experience and 10+ years extreme enduro moto experience.
No it's not 'pure' in the MTB/sado masochististic pedaling sense whatever the hell that means. And no I can't do a 100+ mile epic singletrack throttle twisting...more

Well, holy hell! I am now even more impressed with how riders like Minnaar got through there so clean. Most of the people crashing here probably ride 10x better than me and it looks disgustingly difficult. Yeah that guy at the start should just have called it, you have to know when to quit.
