Thanks for your comment, DrewB, and the notes on Moab as well. To be honest, I thought we had prepared well for our ride, but indeed had not. Some notes regarding our experience, however: There were no shuttles the day we set out, and we asked multiple bike shops the day before when we arrived in the early afternoon. The early ride start was actually a suggestion of the staff at the time at Redback Bikes. We were merely going on the local's advice.

We vowed to never return when we left in rough shape. Like anyone that has a bad experience, before time has allowed for ample reflection on it, it's often when the silly statements etc set in. As TimBud said below, it was an anecdote that we (my wife and I) find amusing these days, just like a lot of stupid decisions become.

Oh yah, and you should try Slickrock on an e-bike

Give him credit for a fare review. Didn't ride illegal trails and acknowledged the pros and cons. I'm not a fan of e-bikes, but no need to rip apart this reviewer. Complain to the editors if you don't want to see ebike reviews on here.

Does Michelin manufacture these for e*thirteen? This looks like a tweaked version of the Wild Rock'r 2...

You should talk to e*thirteen and they will confirm the TRSr competes with the 73mm SixC crank. The Next SL has traditionally been an XC product which has now found its way onto trail bikes. You generally wont see it showing up on EWS level Enduro which is what the TRSr was designed for.

He was probably referring to the SRAM XX1 crankset, which is 546g wit a 32t chainring. He never said SRAM held the benchmark, though they definitely set it when they introduced XX1 and as such are a worthy manufacture to compare to even with lighter options now such as the Next SL crankset.

The TRSr is a competitor for the SixC cranks. Not the Next SL XC cranks.

I love Shimano products, but damn, how can a company with $3 billion in sales put out a press release with grainy 2d images of forthcoming products?

now that 1x11 has reached pretty much the lowest price point, a betting man would guess sram has something new on the way to the top of their line. gotta keep you hungry!

I just ordered one of these thanks in part to this review. I am really liking SC's new lineup with the longer cockpits -- a feature they have needed to implement for years prior. Thanks for the great review as usual, Vital.

This is awesome! Bikes are supposed to be fun. Don't take it so seriously. Not every lap is a race run. Dick around on the bike some more. Make mistakes, stop trying to ride with perfect form all the time. Believe in what you're capable of.
