Is it not already? Did this change with the move to 275? How can we be certain it suddenly will with 29 then?

DH racing has regulations, that they are not the same as unrelated spots or different cycling disciplines isn't really cause for comparison. I can pick any number of regs in the sports you mentioned that are not present in DH that you wouldn't care for. Weight, tire tread, tire width, seat length, longevity of key components, etc. As I wrote above, if we are going to compare why not start at the most relevant: other forms of mountain bike racing. If we can't find a compelling argument for regulation there, what is the sense of cherry picking an isolated data point from an unrelated discipline? Especially if we aren't willing to adopt any of the other regulations or rational that comes with it.

dood garbanzo on a dirt jumper is so much more playful its way better than a lame 275er with shocks

Larger shocks than we are using now ostensibly run cooler and lower leverage ratios could offer damping setup advantages. If an 11" shock came out and it offered superior traction and was 1-2 seconds faster but the tradeoff was that the bike was now less "fun" in chop, should there be discussion about quitting DH or outlawing the bigger shock? How is it substantially different from a wheel size discussion? 29 is just a tool, like a tire or a wheel or a shock. And bar width is a GREAT example because it's a bar - you decide whether you want a narrow one or a wide one depending on what floats your boat or helps you ride faster. Again, riders can prefer whatever they want, but why would one preference be disallowed? If it is slower, it won't happen. If it's faster, it will.

I like your example about rampage going one direction and then heading back again, and I think it's a good point about people deciding what they want from an event. I just question the "OMG THE WORLD IS COLLAPSING LET'S REGULATE" vibe from some people. If viewership of DH goes way down when everyone is on easy boring 29" wheels, maybe there will be a good reason to go back and reevaluate, but I have a feeling in the long run it's just barely a blip on the radar

Easy there, Lace! We often add tokens or bands when experiencing bottom-out issues. Nearly every Vital Test Sessions review discusses the addition or removal of air volume spacers, compression, and the like to dial in a setting that works best for our testers and the terrain (and hopefully readers like yourself). The tester in question was routinely using all of the rear travel and wanted a bit more support from the air spring. This isn't an overly progressive bike to begin with.

There's plenty of analysis from the average rider's perspective in this review, and only a few mentions of a very common compression issue light/short/young riders face.

FOX is not actually a team sponsor, they work with Aaron directly, hence they were not included in the team announcement. And for the record, proof-reading a press release would not involve adding a name to a list of sponsors...

This is the case of getting enough speed, not the size of the gap. And if some of the fastest racers in the world have issues getting speed, you think it would be otherwise for Fest people? The run ins at Fest are all smooth and clean. Not the case here. All the top 80 racers could clear any gap at Fest any time. Not sure if the guys from Fest would make the cut in the finals at a World Cup. Though, I have full respect and apreciation for both of them. The gaps aren't babies, and it's not about teaching. It's apples and oranges. Cheers

Cheers for the critique, SDMTB'er.

I assure you that there are no biases toward the big boys vs the little guys. Vital has featured many very positive reviews of boutique brands, advertiser or not, including a handful of bikes made by Pivot.

There are a few distinctions that you should be aware of between the reviews. For starters, the Trek was reviewed by our 6'2" and 6'5" tall riders (as is clearly stated). The Pivot by our 5'8" and 5'10" testers. We do our best to tell you about each of the test riders in detail, something you won't find many other places. We list their height, weight, riding styles, and more. All so that you can better determine whether their experiences might mimic your own.

To clarify, regardless of the stem you put on a bike, the Reach measurement does not change. It's the horizontal distance between the center of the BB and the center of the top of the headtube. The size Large Pivot is very short - it's actually shorter than all 15 other men's bikes in our Test Sessions roundup, several of which are Mediums. The Trek has a much longer front center, somewhere near the top when comparing it to similarly sized bikes in the 160mm travel range.

Our testers will swap cockpit components as needed to improve the fit/feel of the bike, but also comment on the stock setup as well. Some bikes ride terribly with the stock stuff and are greatly improved with a wider/shorter combo. Others work well. For the tall guys, Trek's 750mm bar is far from ideal, and the 70mm stem doesn't quite align with the bike's capabilities. For the average height guys, Pivot's 755mm bar worked just fine, as did the slightly shorter 60mm stem. This is stated in both reviews. The M6 is a great bike in many respects, and we clearly describe where it excels.

Our ratings consider many factors, including value, price, build spec, geometry, weight, construction, how it climbs, how it descends, how it sprints, how it pumps, how it jumps, how the suspension performs, where it excels, where it doesn't, the little details, etc... The list is pretty exhaustive actually.

While it's easy to say that a bike review should just focus on the frame, there is so much more to how a bike rides than that. The suspension, tires, wheels, etc all come into play in a big way. Some companies do a great job with their builds, others overlook minor details that can end up having a big impact on the ride quality. If you're spending your money on it, don't you wan't to know how those things perform? In an ideal world we'd test all bikes with the exact same components and tire pressures, but that's just not how they're sold. They're each a sum of their parts, for better or worse.
