Yes, i'll second this; it's so refreshing to see actual linkage analysis published in bike reviews. Even though Linkage is cheap and easy to use for interested consumers, it's important to me that the reviewers understand what's actually going on when writing this stuff. You guys are killing it!

That was a very good business lesson! In short, Suntour made a lot of Marzocchi Suspension without any issues, when some of designs changed & the engineers didn't do a good job teaching them how to assemble it properly the wheels began to fall of the cart. So a combination of difficult designs, poor engineering, and poor assembly education lead to faulty products. So with DVO, we have our own assembly teams & we spend a lot of time here at our factory inside Suntour making sure we do it the right way. Life is full of valuable lessons & learned nearly all of them! Cheers!

Dylan and I both commented that this was one of the most comfortable bikes straight out the door. Why I felt that way when I'm a good hot dog length shorter than Ol' Gangly Moose is because of the way I like to ride. A generous cockpit and stays means a generous wheelbase which in this case equals comfort and stability at speed. If I had or enjoyed tight twisty trails I'd go large but that ain't my jam. Also, if you do go XL and find the 50mm stem to be lengthy you could size down the stem, I wouldn't suggest the inverse.

For some it may seem too technical, but I appreciate the suspension kinematics at the beginning of the review. It gives knowledgeable readers important information, well at least on paper. Also it sets Vital apart from the other magazines by providing a more detailed scientific review rather than a bunch of guys drinking beers and discussing what they thought based more on subjective opinions.

Excellent review. I bought the following based on vitals review last year. The Calling seems like a plusher version of the following. The following is a very capable bike. I ride everything from bike park to smooth, sharp berms,flowing trails. I definitely ride it beyond its capability which is why I'm looking for a rig with more travel for those rowdy DH trails. The following really shines on smoother trails that are fast with lots of burms and jumps. Even when the trail gets rough the following still holds a line, you just won't be as fast and it takes a little more toll on the rider.

He is a cool dude. I met him on Backbone trail in the boo about a year ago. We were at the Latigo parking lot and he was asking for directions. He was on his TI FS Moots at the time. Big bike for a big guy. Anyway, he has some serious cardio, he was talking about his ride and he puts in some serious miles, especially for a big guy.
