Jeff I feel the changes suit the sponsored pro-riders much better as they can adapt and (mostly) change their plans according to the new schedules, race course, etc. The balancing act that is the EWS is quite a sight to behold as you have the AMs wanting ... more ยป

Interesting, I actually just bought this bike. Shortened the chain to the correct length, fixed the slightly tweaked rear der., and added some chainstay wrap. Shifting pretty perfect now! After about 10 rides, running 30%sag and having slowed the rebound a touch, the shock is breaking...more

I had this bike before EndurHo bought it. I rode it a few times on my local rocky trails and thought it worked great. Maybe it's because I already own a few Orange bikes? maybe it's because I'm a fan of SP bikes and used to how they behave? maybe because I'm a lightweight? yeah it...more

Yeah those Alpines and Fives are the most beautiful and simple bikes out there IMHO. I know it's not a popular opinion in today's carbon crazy world though!! Can't wait to get them over here, as getting one right now is pretty much impossible short of flying over there and buying one.

Wentz, what pedals would be more better than these one for XC. You seem to point out to some better alternatives, but without naming them! E13? Straitlines? Saints?

Thanks great review btw

It's a great idea/adventure. Dangerous one if there was ever one. BUT why of why do these guys use pseudo mountain bikes or even cross bikes when you are gonna roll in the jungle and hit some trails? They seem to struggle on the trails with those tiny tires...

How this bike a "weak" bike? I don't get it. Does it break when you look too hard at it? I wouldn't think so, being a Turner, and that they are hard as *uck!!

Much respect. Photo coverage is by far the best way to feel the vibe of the race/place/trail etc. Keep up the good work and looking forward to another wonderful year of race coverage.

Thanks Ian for the great insight. Last question: I know a bike is a sum of all it's parts, but are you feeling that the long chainstay has a particular effect on the handling of the bike (i.e. harder to pull up or to manual)??

Hall Ranch classic shots! That place has one of the most fun and diverse loop I've ever done.

Great review btw, thanks! I wonder how it stacks up against the new Mattoc by Manitou. Hope Vital will have a review down the line also.
