Not related to the 29ers as the big wheels are not going faster

No perception bro. The 29ers look lame on track and I'm not seeing the speed advantage.

If UCI bans skinsuits for image, shouldn't they do it for 29ers as well?

GM's bike also has different geo than previous? That might make it more comfortable but the fact that 29ers look horrible on track. If the UCI banned skinsuits because of image to the sport, they should ban the 29er as well. If/when all teams go 29er, ... more »

Keene's best result was on 650b at Whistler with a 3rd. Graves hasn't found his stride on his 29er. I think in EWS there is a lot more acceleration/de-acceleration where the smaller wheels perform better but that's just my theory. Lot of factors in play. ... more »

clearly there is no advantage of 29er in the EWS circuit... 90% of the top 10 are on 650b. Yeti guys are riding the 650b. The riders that are running the 29er are doing so on smooth not so steep tracks. I bet Graves would do better on a 650b.

GM is popping off stuff and just looking rowdy... the way the sport should be portrayed. Down right boring with the 29er.

I just watched Minaars run and then Rats run from 2014 on 26". Must say the 26" are much better to watch from a viewer perspective. The 29er is just not as lively or loose. Sure they are faster but quite boring to watch. #bringback26

We're on it, boys! The Face Off feature Spomer alluded to will have some super scientific curb smashing with various controls in place.

4 of my riding buddies got varying models of intense last year and 3 of them had major issues with the frames and are all in agreement that Intense bikes are not worth the premium $ they are asking. They are pretty pissed about the whole situation.

Pedal kickback is mostly felt when the suspension compresses during pedaling on bigger cogs on the rear, and at slow speeds (rocky climbs are a good example). On small rear cogs and fast speeds the kickback is hard to feel. At higher speeds the pedals not always rotate backward,...more

The aluminum frames are backed by a 3 year warranty. The carbon frames are backed by a 5 year warranty.

For some it may seem too technical, but I appreciate the suspension kinematics at the beginning of the review. It gives knowledgeable readers important information, well at least on paper. Also it sets Vital apart from the other magazines by providing a more detailed...more

Vital is killing it. Comparing this article to counterparts on other websites, this is just so much better. Loving the multimedia aspect. Seeing the trails discussed in detail in the review is sick.

$1,900 US$ for a wheel that cracked 3 times and may not get warranty.... no sale.
