You beat me to that line. But you meant to say 7 miles/second - not feet.

Edit - thanks for correcting it

Looks like the silver RD does not have the clutch whereas the black RD does have the clutch? Confused...

I will never understand people who ride without gloves. Awesome video though.

Ok, we know what Brian looks like.... Now let's see more shots of the bike. It bothers me when bike check videos focus the camera on the person rather than the bike. That's why I much prefer the Vitalmtb bike check slideshows with audio.

Added a product review for Specialized Pitch Pro Bike 5/1/2011 8:05 AM

Awesome (2011 version)


The Good: Climbs extremely well, Propedal works very efficiently with the FSR suspension, Decends incredibly, ISCG tabs, the fork can be internally lowered to 140 or 130. Has cable guides for a dropper post. The XL weighs in at 31.25lbs. Despite what I expected with white grips, they clean very well.

The Bad: Not really much, comes with X5 shifters which I promptly replaced with some X7's, but only because I had some extras. I'm sure the X.5s would've handled fine

Overall: Climbs well. This is the most underrated bike out there. I'd put this up against any 3-4 grand bike any day. Since my riding style caters more to the downhills, The 90mm stem was a bit awkward when I wanted to manual or jump so I put a 40mm on it and now it's perfect. Upgrades so far: X7 shifters 40mm Hussefelt Stem Funn Fatboy Bar (same dimensions as the Specialized one, but it's stronger and lighter despite it being a freeride bar)

Added a product review for Truvativ Holzfeller OCT 1.1 DH Crank 3/20/2011 8:46 PM

Great Part


The Good: Lightweight, Inexpensive(compared to other hollow cranks), looks good

The Bad: Not a very good finish, machine work isn't flawless. Then again neither am I. However I am not selling myself.

Overall: Definitely worth the investment.

Awesome Frame


The Good: Simple design, very strong, can be used for anything from DJ to slopestyle to trail riding to light DH, very flickable, awesome value for the money, great company to back it up.

The Bad: It's just the frame.

Overall: Definitely worth the money
