That's what it'll look like when you come back if you leave it locked outside the store for 5 minutes in the hood.

Well just like I thought. The bike is PERFECT for me. I'm an old (56) XC racer who wanted a bike in addition to my Pivot Mach 429SL that I can get a LITTLE bit rowdier on. It still had to climb great and be able to descend as well as I can (which is not like these pro...more

Yes, progressiveness will do that to an extent, at least on the more traditional rear triangle layouts. But also bear in mind that 140 will do that a lot more than 160. Sounds obvious, but 140mm bikes with modern geo give you such a good feeling on the trail that you sometimes...more

interesting, but this would be even better with raw clips of the section, or even side to side comparisons of the lines chosen by the riders. Just a little feedback, thanks VitalMTB!

Good angles + good suspension = fast. Fast + Ardent front tire = certain death.

Let me get this right, you are worried about being eco friendly in regards to a chainring, when attached to that you have rubber manufacturing from overseas, metal manufacturing from numerous countries, and probably around six pounds of carbon fiber in the frame? How many DH chainrings do you wear out a year? And which body of water is strait aluminum from? The Strait of Gibraltar? The Strait of Magellan?

Travel reducer spacers. They are actually offered in 2.5mm steps instead of the 5mm increments shown. So you can have a 230x65, 230x62.5, 230x60, 230x57.5, then step down to 210 chassis options- 210x55, 210x52.5 etc.

Sspomer, did Marcelo say why he runs 172.5 cranks? Super odd size for dh, considering 95% of people are probably on 165mm, then some holdouts on 170mm.

Who is the factory rider on Specialized that is using the Maxxis Minion and not a Butcher/Purgatory/Slaughter? I'm assuming it is a top end Spesh rider with the frame, wheels, drivetrain...

Really appreciate the honesty Vital. I know that a lot of "reviews" on other sites come at a price, and it's great to see a media outlet providing real feedback.
