Agree to so,e point, but Im not surprised with the suspenion again the bike takes the hit for this and maybe as bturman says that specc is fine for your average joe punter, but is average joe punter buying these bikes or should they be.
Having 4 alloy 3 carbon I question manafacuters speccs, this shouck and fork is not up to the frame level and should only be slecced on lower end for the punter rider, if you train monkeys you get monkeys. Higher price should reflect higher performance, if riders cant handle that they buy lower price to suit theyre performance simple, I feel for the frame and this is where testing becomes confusing and very subjective.
This needs to be clearer in my opinion.
A: either test pure performance and rate it as such so consumers are aware if ride is harsh or challenign its because its the performance end of the model range, if linear soft blows through travel for a pro rider then its at the lower end of the range for that type of rider. This then clearly defines what a pitential buyer wants, not the soze of his or hers wallet then still ends up disappointed, I would love to know what this bike is capable of with a Monarch Debonair, Pike Solo or new 36rc2 for example.
I feel this test even though rating is good makes the bike seem like it needs allot of work or replacement suspenion to get kt to pefrom to what we expect from Enduro bikes post 2014.

Interesting that the team shed quite a few of its members, sad to see them lose their only female rider. Also, looks like Neko is sporting a prototype Fox air shock in the rear. Interesting, the Enduro teams have embraced female riders, one of the big ... more »
