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 forget that there's less travel available to deal with rough stuff.

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!

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.

Wow sending that Carbon bike through the rocks was just some crazy BDSM knifeplay to that Evil. Just image one slip and you got a Tyrone Biggums of a frame


And you forced me to buy a 29er Vital okay are you happy!?

Is it still uncool? will i still be able to ride with my friends?
Please include that in the next 29er Test session, Some people feel insecure in their inner 29er and by people i mean myself

You might put the Morsa on the front and the Goma in the back. I would put them both in the garbage.

Funny how Gee gets so much grief. Winners are focused and often very serious. This guy puts so much work in and sacrifices a great deal out of his daily life to chase tenths a of seconds only to get crappy commentary from Internet aficionados. Kind of a bummer, really. Anyway, I feel like Gee is actually more honest in that he's not selling us on anything he's not 100% behind. He will be stoked when he is winning races on that gear and not much sooner I suspect. I respect that...for what it's worth. Thanks for sharing, Gee. Good luck this season.

Was there any discussion about running 27.5+ rear and 29 front? Just curious what kind of ride this might produce...? Great write up btw!

An excellent and honest review of this bike Vital. Based on my experience aboard my "Snuggler", I think you nailed it.

Quick tip to cut down on internal cable noise, instead of trying to keep them 'taught' as you did, push them into the frame as much as you can, so they are always in contact with the frame, and then cinch the zip ties at both ports. Worked a treat for me... no more slapp'n da bass!

Also, for turning this bike up to 11, I'd highly recommend the -1.5 degree Works offset headset.... if you like riding the rowdy steeps that is

Looking forward to seeing how the Smuggler stacks up against the competition!
