I find it very intersting that many people question the offset in comments. Wonder if it was the same way when Giant introduced the longer offset for their Reigns.

Hope to get to demo a new Patrol/Scout soon.

I don´t think it would be good that the UCI would step in and rule what wheel size should be used. Both wheel sizes work for all the girls and boys racing EWS so why shouldn´t that be the case in DH. Like the commentators on Red Bull TV use to say - it is the pinnacle of the cycling sport and like Formula 1 and therefore just use/or roll on whatever makes you happy as a team.

I think it is a bit strange that both want the UCI to rule in that case.

sick bike - love it and honestly the weight is not that important.
I did not have any clue what the weight of my bike was until a friend wanted to know and it felt 2kg heavier when pedaling uphill afterwards.

Maybe you could do a long term review after 6 months and again after 12 months as it would be very interesting to see/hear on how the bike holds up. Have fun riding!

@cody.souisa
very nice build and as already pointed out - a very practical approach which I really like

did you use a 2x SLX crank set up as a 1x with any spacers or did the chainring/chainrline fit like it was? I want to switch my existing 2x XT crank to a 1x setup and using the existing crank would make it more affordable

any word on where Conor Macfarlane will end up riding? Not really racing - but maybe someone picked up something?

It would fit the BMC changes I noticed. A marketing guy who was involved in MTB left and when I talked to them last year in autumn they did not seem to have much space for the "Enduro segment". Maybe they are also pushing the e-bike things? And of course ... more »

Kirt's attitude would fit really well on a brand like Transition I think! Sponsor this man!

Attention bike marketers: I do not watch burm slashing, edge of the world, drony, triple can-can bar hump videos. They are all the same; boring. But if Kurt is in a video, I watch. I watch because his videos are not "let's make a video like the other guy" videos, I watch because Kurt...more

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame...more

I ride Onza as well and like them very much. Sometimes mix them with a Maxis DHF at the front and no issues so far. Grip an predictable in wet conditions.
