These kinds of debates are what 300 post comments are made from, there just isn't "right" answer? Haha. Who you ride with, where you live, what terrain like to ride, etc... At least there isn't as much trolling on this site vs the other one.

Anyway, I use the same argument with the lifted pickup, but more power to those guys if that's what they want and really helps up their FigJam game at the trailhead. I live in the Denver, Front Range and only have one "modern" bike a SB66c @150mm, and use for sure bikepark/burlier trail but do a lot of XC too, even a lap on WhiteRim on Minions which was a dumb choice. Interesting as well, when I got it in 2012, I had a 200mm DH bike which I sold b/c the SB66c was so much better at everything once my skills caught up, like you said about skill/fitness matters more than travel.

Spent a couple of days in Moab on the newer SB5 and while better, still similar enough to the SB66 IMHO. Also think an argument could be made about how the level of speed and aggression you put into a trail can have a big influence on bike and fun which I guess is just defacto if you race. A 8-10min run down lower Ahab is a very different experience than a 15-20min ride.

My buddies are smoking me on their long travel 29'ers on some sections of trails and they all have good things to say about the new stiffness of the newer bikes, so I can see one in my future for sure.

I love how they said Sam was going to be capable of taking some sort of "fight to Richie", I love Sam Hill but he beat the guy on 1 stage and by 1 second at that. Richie is unbeatable!

About as straight up a review as I've seen on this or "the other" site. It was refreshing to see you call out specifics and not gloss over the items you didn't like. Thanks!

Awesome coverage as always!
If I'm not mistaken, the slideshow is usually uploaded the morning after the race, I see someone must have stayed up late while the party was going on. Cheers for that!

my heart goes out to his friends, family and everyone in the mountain bike community. always seemed a genuine person--didn't know him but his spirit shined through tv interviews. damn.

my best friend died while we were on a ride together. just the two of us. fucking heartbreaking. this story, along with some beers, brought it all back and now I'm weeping at the bar. May you all find peace and live your life to the fullest.

Gonna have to call you out on that one. Mik is one of the most powerful guys on the circuit...2nd at Pietermaritzburg in 2014 proves that. Brosnan has shown he's not lacking in power...1st in Fort William 2014 with the infamous 'motorway' section.

You make a good point here - a lot of people forget that Boost isn't just about wheel stiffness. Having that extra space in BB/Yoke area (small though it may seem to non-engin-nerds) is a pretty major ingredient in what allows us to shorten the CS's and add enough material/structure to keep all that stiffness in there. It also allows for more tire/mud clearance. In the end, it's a pretty big benefit (and this is from a guy who nearly put his fist through a wall when he heard about another new 'standard'). --JP

Also a good point on your end. I've always been more of a VW GTI/Subaru WRX type of guy vs. a 911. The reaction was as much because even $5600 is well out of my budget. It's even more difficult when you have bikes like the Salsa Horsethief that you can buy complete with X1/XO1 for almost half the Yeti. (Albeit, that's more in the 4.5c category) I am glad to see they increased the rear tire clearance significantly compared to the 4.5c. It makes a lot of sense for anyone in muddy areas or who simply prefer the support of a 2.35 or larger tire.
