I've been pretty outspoken about MTB-industry prices going pretty out of control, but more in terms of clothing (DH mainly) and tires than anything else. I look at the prices high quality MX/dirtbike/ATV riding gear goes for at motocross/motorcycle shops, ... more »

yep! and Canfield is nice enough to offer it as a limited edition package, with the Emerald fork, Jade shock, and DVO green links!

ok this is a seriously good idea, I generally try to not ride solo, or at least on low-traffic trails (more fun riding with people :D) but the times I do, or if I'm out in a fairly remote trail, this could literally be a life saver

it's little features like this that make bike setup (especially on longer travel bikes/bikes with coil shocks) a lot easier, even just some paint lines on the linkage to indicate where in the travel one was would be great

Lets be honest - as nostalgic as everyone is for 26" wheels, there is a good chance the 650b offers some considerable advantages for DH and Enduro applications, while 29" clearly makes sense for outright speed on the trail/XC side. With the increasing inertia generated by a gyroscopic effects of...more

I've got Impacts, Danny Macs, and Minnaars all from last year and my VXi's are by far the stiffest of them all.

I've always liked running a short stem on a bike, even for just general trail riding and XC... I just wish it was easier to find short-ish travel trail bikes with a 24.5-25" TT and a ~17" seat tube...

considering this whole setup literally costs less than some traditional downhill frames that still need a full drivetrain setup (derailleur, cassette, cranks/chainring/chainguide/bashguard, etc), it could actually build up to a reasonably priced (compared to some of the top-of-the-line downhill bikes on the market) and very very capable rig. getting to the shock for adjustments might be an exercise in patience (and the importance of carrying zipties and a pocketknife to remove and replace the CF bashplate every time) but for a bike otherwise that well thought out, I'd be willing to deal with it
