Way to tell it like it is vital. Your honesty makes the 5-star reviews that much more meaningful.

I love the snappiness of carbon rims but until i am making 150k a year, I cannot possibly justify it.

In addition to several other big rides, this rig was taken on a 46-mile high country day on the Colorado Trail with about 6'000 feet of climbing. Would've never done that on the previous bike, so it's safe to say she's a much better climber than the previous design! I'll go into more depth in the upcoming ride review.

It took a few weeks, but it grew on me. The paint changes color when looked at from various directions.

These face-off articles are the best! Keep it up vital! I have been wanting to see concavity compared forever, definitely helped aid my next pedal purchase.

Fresh off of an outstanding win at this years Mont-Sainte-Anne UCI Downhill race, Aaron Gwin takes full advantage of the chance to come home and train on California’s technical coastal trails. Ride along as he clocks close to 40mph on this rocky Laguna Beach, California descent!

Mixing dirt types typically doesn't work very well as they don't always bond together like you'd hope which can lead to the finish surface chunking off. If you do go that route, ensure that your screened dirt finish layer is a solid 6+ inches thick.

Might have to bust out the steering damper for this one. So sick!

Wow that is a great stock photo at the top. "VisitRenoTahoe" must promote time machines.

You can read our in-depth review of The Calling here: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Bikes,3/Evil/Calling-Eagle-X0,18117#product-reviews/2636

Here's a comparison of the specs for the two bikes we tested: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/compare/18117-18661

Despite the difference in travel, I think The Calling is every bit as prepared for the rough stuff as the Mach 5.5. Major differences are weight (Pivot is a good deal lighter) and spec (Shimano vs SRAM).

The Calling
Climbing: 3 stars - Good
Descending: 4.5 stars - Outstanding
Fun Factor: 5 stars - Spectacular
Value: 4 stars - Excellent
Overall Impression: 4 stars - Excellent
