I'm just glad that Dave Weagle doesn't get ripped off for once.

I think I can safely say that we will all be sleeping a little better at night knowing this

Maybe they should see if Michael Phelps swims faster in his jeans or in a skin suit too

Wait... Did they just try to sell me a Specialized skinsuit?

The pedals were fine, though not as good as thinner pedals would be. The shoes were stupid. What were they thinking?

Most people are absolutely blown away to learn that flat pedals allow you to pedal at a lower percentage of vo2max at these lower outputs. But there is actually a lot of data from studies that show this to be true. It has more to do with lower...more

Is that what's considered "Proper DH" nowadays?

Since when was riding groomers ' proper DH ' ?

At least ride a real dh trail...a 6" bike would probably been faster

TRex,

I appreciate the skepticism given the general nature of Vital focusing on more "aggressive" riding disciplines. I've used those Oury grips for what seems like forever, even when I lived in Oregon and it rained all the time. I really like the diameter it gives my grip and the...more

This dropper is specifically aimed at first time dropper users (purebred XC riders/racers), which is exactly why Josh was a great reviewer for it. To my knowledge there are no other XC droppers on the market today, so what would he compare it to? His findings do coincide with my...more

Here in 'Murica we tend to shout a lot about FREEDOM! But we certainly don't have the FREEDOM! to build ridiculously fun trails like that in the neighborhood. Well done Switzerland.

Very cool! I would love to see more mixed style events. A new definition for "All Mountain."

Wow, talk about a blatant marketing scam! Get a new bike when your old one isn't fun anymore, if that ever happens!

I too have yet to see it on the WC circuit, but many of the Rampage riders were skipping chainguides entirely. This one at least has a top guide still.

Technically no- this bike uses their proprietary bars, stem, wheels, and tires as well so they do have stuff that other companies don't have "exact" access to. If anything there are more "special" parts on this specific rig but you could for sure find comparable or lighter parts...more

`gotcha. I always find these "look at this light bike!" things really funny when it comes from a bike company. The only part that makes this bike different than what any weenie can build is the frame and shock. So lets compare weights of frame + shock: then you know what is the...more
