Hey AlexB. With the recommended settings the Strive really rewards an aggressive rider. We found that you really need to get up on it and be confident in decisions in order to get the most from it. It's not as point and shoot as say, a Nomad can be, with the Nomad being more capable of making up for rider error, despite its aggressive attitude. I definitely would not take this as a negative for the bike, because it is a weapon and we quite enjoyed the support the bike granted! Hope this helps.

Apologies Jayper. Totally let that slide when jotting these answers down. You've got some serious goods in that area, mad respect to the trail builders and the local mtb community!

Thanks, Jayper, for noting the possibility of an issue. We've removed the trail name from the article and your comment. Keep up the good work in SLO. The scene is strong and the trails are great.

Next level, yes. Too many moving parts, for sure. It definitely is eye pleasing though, and whether it's sold in the US or not I'm loving all the foggy glamour shots at the Morro Bay harbor. Nice to see the California central coast love in the Test Sessions. Thanks to the...more

Geezus - you online FREE bike content website cannot win. Pinkbike commenters always complain of them not reviewing enough of the overseas brands (Canyon, YT, etc). Anyways - kudos on running a thorough test on this bike. Cool to see coverage for the new tech that's out there,...more

While Vital's viewership is strongest in the US, a sizable portion of our readers are in other parts of the world. Also, Canyon may come to the US in the future.

Those things look sweeeet! Agree with Lee too; it's nice to see some bike specific brand space bought on the lids, rather than the energy drinks. I wonder if there is an interesting story behind Jerome and Monster parting ways?

You should probably add "using enduro as a verb" to the what's out in 2015 list...

Race looks fun tho.

It's a three part process to have a fleet of highend bikes without any debt.

First, step up slowly; Rome wasn't built in a day. Start with a budget trail bike, ride it, save at the same time just like you did for the first bike, sell, buy nicer. Then do the same next season with that...more
