Definitely smoother than what's in that video, but there are some sections that are similar. It's best you just come and see for yourself bud...

Great review as usual guys. I've had this machine for a couple weeks now and I'm really impressed with it so far. I'm coming off a DeVinci Spartan and I feel I've upgraded. I was actually hoping to get into the new Troy XO, but build kits weren't going to be available until June. I'm happy I ended up on this...

I have to admit I'm confused about the pedal kickback and shock rate data. Any faults in its design are not apparent to me on the descents. I haven't ridden as many bikes as you guys obviously, but I'm stoked on how this bike feels playful, stable, and very efficient. I've straight-lined all the technical stuff I can find around here.I think it soaks up things better than the 165mm bike I came off of...

I gotta say though, I might not be doing that much anymore after seeing what happened to the wheels.

I've put a length of foam pipe insulation across the top of my tailgate for every pad I've run. Easiest way to get some extra padding.

C50_image_1439449059

Love this pad, except I can't totally agree on it's design idea. I rotated mine slightly backwards so the foam blocks are on top of my tailgate. This allows the downtube of the bike to sit in the space between them, but the velcro strap then moves to the back of the tailgate, and isn't exactly usefull for holding the down tube of your frame. I can use the straps around a fork stantion kind of...

Those of you that are wearing the bottom of your downtube out, try my method!

To be honest, this came from another forum user during the whole Trek to Specialized "letter of intent" debacle.

After todays events, it seemed appropriate to revive it. You're welcome.
