I hope that's not a field of poodle dog bush that the photog's standing in (purple stalks).

Orbea and Turner looked so smooth (have a bit of trouble with that Commencal? ). Jamis's crank seemed to almost stay perfectly level--wonder if that right amount of kickback was designed in, or if it were just coincidence. Was paying attention to cable routing on some of them, and Turner has the most locked down setup of them all.

I can speculate why you had so many chain drops with NW setups... mainly because I have had the same prob with my RF NW rings.

How did the stock slaughter tire handle that kind of terrain, assuming you rode it before swapping to a Butcher? :D

How do you say it pedals compared to other trail bikes? None of the glamour shots show any sort of pedaling, which might turn off some of those into 3hr rides with buddies going both up and down mountains and backcountry stuff.

Watched it the first time on the edge of my seat scoping out his mind-blowing lines and riding skill, and the 2nd time taking in the environment while laid back.

DH mtb must be viewed as some sort of spartan sport down there.

I expected lighter, but then again it has real tires and a dropper.

"the bars fell in the sweet spot of 'just right' in every way" - pretty much how I'd sum it up. A very nice balance.

Love the last pic. Love Turner's cable routing. That burly sculpted headtube look is good too.

Also curious what's in that box above the BB.

Looks like it might be ripping off Speedgoat's design.

I guess when you're charging 2600+ USD for a wheelset, another 500 doesn't hurt as much.

Fully mechanical? Wondering if this thing needs to be warmed up or not when it gets cold out, like the Reverb and Lev.
