A quote from one of the best mtb racer in the hizzzztory of this noble sport: "With Maxxis, you just run the Minion, and you just call it good,'' said Graves of his long-time favorite tire. ''You're just so used to that tire, but I've been trying a lot of different combinations to learn about the product and what does work best in a given sort of condition. It's been a lot of fun actually. It makes you think about things you wouldn't normally think about." http://www.pinkbike.com/news/jared-graves-specialized-enduro-bike-check.html

Well I'm sure you have your own reasons, and good ones also, but the DHF is the single best mountain bike tire produced to date. Some may come close, but it's still the king. And I'd go as far as to say your statement is about as misleading as there is about the DHF: the DHF is really good in about every surfaces, except really hardpacked trails and a full on gong show of mud.

THIS is the girl the Syndicate needs to add!!! The Missile was tailor made to cause mayhem with the Rat. Last week's fight would have been no contest

Whenever I see that Missy stuff, I'm stoked. That pic with Bryceland is epic. I also think of that song when I think of her on a DH bike in 2015: Chamillionnaire - ridin dirty YEAH!

Added a comment about video Watch Robbie Maddison Ride His MX ON THE WAVES OF TAHITI 8/3/2015 10:33 AM
C138x104

From Grantland: "In the film’s climax, he glides just ahead of a 20-foot wave. It breaks and Maddison is lost in the splash of the thundering curl; he escapes, a conqueror of earth’s gnarliest waters. But life goes on after the cut. What the viewer doesn’t see is that the same wave would ultimately overtake Maddison, sweep him underwater, and knock him unconscious."

Word I didn't know that C. Ball explitcitly had the 9-5 demographic in mind. Good for them. Still makes these events hard to fully attend when you have to work in "normal" schedule. No excuses though, a good friend of mine juste drove from Montreal (QC) ... more »

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 »

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.
