I'm more interested in the XTR VPP frame than the drivetrain

From what I've heard this seems to be a hit or miss thing with riders. For me it's been a hit though you bring up a good point about chain wear.. It would be interesting to do a poll to get a larger sample size and maybe sort out which systems work best?

rear der: Sram X9 med clutch
cog: WTC 42
score: 3 (bad=1, so so=2, good=3)
notes: for me, this was worth the $100 having just purchased a new drivetrain and wanted a larger range but didn't want to scrap it all for X01 and then sort out wheel compatibility on top of that.

This looks like an amazingly fun bike. I can't believe I'm saying this but the HA might be too slack for me. 65 on a 160mm fork and if you want to bump the travel up to 180 that would make it about 64 degrees.

Yes for a Lyrik update. When I saw the new Nomad I thought maybe.. but its a Pike.

Thanks Vital MTB and Jenson USA! This will help with a set of Spank Spike wheels I've been eyeing and I'll be sure to post up a review after I've got some time on them.

Nice review, I was eyeing these rims before going another route. I'd also be curious to hear your thoughts on the Magic Marys.

What an amazing run! Was this from his second run that got wiped? Also I just noticed that this is a mirror image vid.

Nice find on the video (though a bit depressing). It was good to see him at least give his open loop a shot. Looks like he was out of his element in a number of different ways - bike, Utah soil, magnitude... hope to see him in some web edits in the future

I think a few riders changed their minds last year and went to a bigger bike after originally planning on a smaller bike that tricks better. Something about those massive features...

Rampage! Though I agree; it kinda feels like the day after Christmas as a kid.
