The actual spring length could be due to a spring not being able to fit a 2" stroke. I'd think if he was running a longer stroke the Pike would be adjusted to match/balance it out. But then he'd probably just ride a Bronson...

Granted Ropo rides at a level waaay above me (aka HACK), but him racing an EWS on a 130mm bike makes me question if I need as much bike as I think I do.

Have you tried KMC chains? I've had great luck with them over SRAM/Shimano. Although, I admit I don't check it as often as I probably should...

I for one enjoyed the narrated POV. It's fun to see the bike in action, and I'd love to see more of it! Very detailed review as well.

I got a fast plant power slide, stump plant to superman to heel clicker, backpedal drop, no footed-50/50 grind to 180, with a one handed backslide exit. X games eat your heart out.

Ever since my bmx days, I've always loved a good Superman seat grab. For now I'll just dream (not my pic):

Torn between travel and a geometry. But I will add the disclaimer that it's the quality of travel versus the amount of travel for me. As I was first getting into biking and I would encounter unusual behavior my immediate thought was that I needed more ... more »

Seriously, who cares about the camelbak....I want that BIKE!!

Marketing advice to Camelbak...Don't make a video where some other product distracts them from the product you're trying to sell. haha

I've heard mixed reports on the SLS spring, are you running the same weight as you would with a steel spring?
