I was thinking the same thing, and glad there was transparency about it. Honestly, I didn't get the impression this was "scripted". I more got the sense Gwin wanted to know what questions were coming to potentially ask for some to not be included, rather than dodging them in the interview... Whether that even happened I don't know.

I think you're point is totally valid. It's obviously AG's perogative but it definitely gave me pause.

That said, I really appreciate that Spomer and AG stated it clearly upfront. Would definitely be more lame and shady if it wasn't made clear.

Loving these podcasts!!

"From the goods in Whistler to the winding trails of Squamish, Durango's high country epics, Moab's classics, and a mix of rides in Sedona, Tucson, Hurricane, Italy, and Vancouver Island"

It's a rough life eh Brandon?

Nice to read a long term review like this, might just have to take the plunge here, based on your experience...

Ah the good old days before the internet. Now everyone can find people online who are also into having sex with other people in animal costumes (I once stayed in a hotel that was hosting a Fuzzy convention a few years ago).

Outstanding work guys! I got a few shots down the page on the PB post and just had to come back and re-watch this, to get my head straight... You can't even compare the quality of this product to those yobbos at PB. Keep leading the way and thanks for all your hard work,

C50_89927670_1252121427

An excellent and honest review of this bike Vital. Based on my experience aboard my "Snuggler", I think you nailed it.

Quick tip to cut down on internal cable noise, instead of trying to keep them 'taught' as you did, push them into the frame as much as you can, so they are always in contact with the frame, and then cinch the zip ties at both ports. Worked a treat for me... no more slapp'n da bass!

Also, for turning this bike up to 11, I'd highly recommend the -1.5 degree Works offset headset.... if you like riding the rowdy steeps that is

Looking forward to seeing how the Smuggler stacks up against the competition!

yeah.
Was on my '16 Transition Patrol

Used to do it as a matter of course when I bought frames from NukeProof, didn't think I'd need to worry about QC with Transition.
