Cam will not be racing in 2015, at least at the World Cup level.

Here's a short response from Banshee on that topic: "No 650b specific version... we wanted to offer a pure bred 26" DH bike as they have advantages for many riders. And not many other brands still offer it even though lots of people want it."

To each their own. I think it looks pretty rad for a MTB shoe.

Have to imagine it's in the works, but as of now they just have it in the 31.6mm size.

The two are in a very similar class - not what I'd call true Enduro race rigs, but more so all-around all-mountain bikes. This is reflected in the suspension leverage curves (relatively linear), available travel, and geometry. You can read our Bronson impressions here. The Ibis has more anti-squat built into the system, and likely better initial sensitivity. The Bronson has less pedal kick back and may be lighter if my memory serves me correctly. Both use a short dual link suspension design so rear end stiffness should be comparable, and both use a threaded BB. We have yet to ride the Bronson with the DBinline.

Compared to the other posts near $400, $250 is (more) affordable. True, the E-Ten wins the award for being the cheapest, but it'd be interesting to see how the two compare performance wise. The E-Ten also has just 100mm of travel.

Cheers, Thrash. While the Pike is also very smooth initially, it tends to have an almost two stage feel with a distinct ramp at the end. The Dizzy is much more consistent through the entire range of travel while also retaining an almost frictionless feel off the top. Chassis wise, the Pike has a stouter feel.

Not bad, eh? Cheers for adding your quite thorough "real world" review. You picked up on many things I also found true on the SB5C. Yeti did a great job with these bikes.
