So awesome. you can literally hear the excitement in Sam's voice when he talks about the track. Meribel takes us back to the natural, gnarly tracks that he used to own time and time again. While I always want Sam to come out on top, it would...more

Truly stoked for Hill. He really deserves to be back on the top after a few rough year with injuries and mishaps. You could tell he was also emotional about it.

Agreed! Hopefully Sam will prove the clipped in faction wrong... It's DH for f-sakes... Flats should be mandatory... Then we'd see who the truly skilled riders are. Clips are for XC and road riding IMO.

Agree Sam Hill can win here regardless of the clip in jocks, depends on the changes they have made to the course as well, more pedally or more technical, hopefully the latter, I don't mind the pedalling aspect of MtB, bit if I want to watch road racing I will watch the...more

What an awesome day for Yeti!!

Knowing that the SB5C rides like it has 20-25mm more travel than it does, this SB6C shouldn't have any issues.

Cuz the 160 mark is the g spot! Gotta power uphill too...

It's not all about the travel, a good rider with 140 mm can keep up with someone else on a much more modern bike with 165 mm of travel, where the skill level doesn't differ that much. True, it...more

Really? Do you like the look of the sb66c? It's looks pretty much the same(awesome) to me, just with switch infinity in place of the previous switch

Ride the new bike then tell us if you're still bummed. I'm pretty sure you won't be.

Sure, everyone could be making single pivots, but would they ride as well? What Yeti is able to achieve with the rail system is pretty cool.

I'd just get a Norco Aurum 6.2 and be done with it. Save $755 at msrp. Even if Pathogen build averaged 15% off on every part, it still wouldn't be as cheap

That's what's really confusing about the article. I wouldn't call a $4400 build a "budget" or "value" build. That's out of reach of many people. I realize the people voted, and picked the components, and in most cases picked reasonably, but as a complete build cost total, it really isn't "value" at all, at least what I was expecting when Vital first announced the project build. I guess "value" has a different definition to different folks. But it also highlights the escalating costs of bikes vs what most people can afford.

That's true, but also brings into question whether this is really a budget build. Not sure I know anybody who's looking to build a DH bike on a budget, yet can drop $4400, but wouldn't buy one of the many complete DH bikes available for that number or less. Even if you can...more
