We've done our best to lay everything out in the open so you can know where we're coming from and what our process is. No, there are no lab tests. After testing and tinkering with enough bikes and components various feelings become quite obvious, especially when you're a big guy like Fred. In this specific instance we felt as though some may be concerned with the low spoke count on Roval's wheels, but neither of the items you quoted were an issue.

Cheers, David. Be sure to catch the reviews from last year if you haven't already. We had some very long bikes. The Trek Slash (480mm), Cannondale Jekyll (484mm), and Mondraker Foxy (518mm) may be of particular interest.

Fair question. The large Stumpy has a reach of 442mm, and was the shortest bike AJ rode. We always try to get two testers on each bike for a more well-rounded opinion, and given Fred's 6'1" height and preference for a bike in the 440-450mm reach range, the large made the most sense this time.

The large Smuggler has a reach of 457mm, which was a bit long for Fred but right in AJ's preferred range. Ultimately it's a matter of choosing one size that will work for both of our tall guys.

If anyone was wondering, there may have been a little bit of air left in the Commencal shock making it a touch harder to compress from behind the bike.

Nailed it! That is indeed a 2015 YT Capra AL 1. With 2016's now available it made sense to hold off until we can get one of those to try. It arrives very soon, so look for that review in the future as well.

This is true, though you can still get a sense for what's what, and there's much more to look at than just chain growth. We'll keep it as consistent as we can in future videos, though it's unlikely all of the bikes will have the same gearing combos available.

Cheers, PeteB! We'll do our best to include something similar in every complete bike review from here on out.
