That whole write up is slathered in marketing blabber. It was hard for me to distill the what the quality improvements are (and they are there). True Trail. DYNAMIC CHAIN ENGAGEMENT. Rhythm Step progression. Vivid indexing. I feel like I am in a magic store.

Dads don't have enough money to buy $4k alloy DH frames.

why is no one jumping on this DEAL??!!!?!! Posting the frame size would certainly help. Also, your spec list and ad seems "odd," no, they seem very odd; is this bike stolen?

Sweet Jesus, that first slide of Gwinn! It's easy to be slow and have your body language all wrong. It's tough to force your body language to be all wrong to avoid the impending death rocks and be the fastest guy by nearly four seconds.

New price: $3,750. This includes shipping to the lower 48 states and PayPal. For perspective, PayPal get $110 of that, and shipping with insurance will be around $80. If you are a list price shopper, that's $3,560 for a brand new carbon DH bike with ... more »

The behavior is position-sensitive, not speed-sensitive.
So it has no impact on the damper -- it modifies the spring curve -- yet it resides in the piggyback. That's interesting.

Same with carbon rims and cranks. Straight out of the mold, they look like blemished parts ready for the scrap bin.

What Sideshow said. If you ever get to see a carbon frame fresh out of the mold it's not much of a looker. There's a great deal of filing, filling, and sanding left to be done to achieve the finished look. Even this one's been cleaned up...more

That's was a raw carbon frame looks like, move along. Paint is unnecessary weight for one, Gwin couldn't give two if his frame looks a little beat up, and three RAW is cool.

Leave it to the Bulldog to be at full travel and have body composure like it's a casual ride. He got that nickname for a reason.

The UCI would make an excellent Bond villain; they are evil to the core.

Haha! You know, I'm not easily offended. If you are serious and have cash/PayPal in hand, send me an email with your offer. Worst I will say is "no," but at least you will have tried and were humble about it.

Unfortunately, no, there will be no Dirt Fantasy Enduro or DH leagues for 2015. http://www.vitalmtb.com/forums/The-Hub,2/2015-Dirt-Fantasy-Leagues,8470#post_18362

Loic, Wait! Don't go that fast!

Man, Claudio is going to be in the booth with Warner giving commentary? I might be waking up early on Sunday to watch this one live.

Of all the bikes in this feature, I've got to say I'm surprised that fewer bikes are carbon than I though would be. I guess geometry > grams for some.
