Maybe the price only matters to people without $1200
Everybody is not meant to have it all

That whole write up is slathered in marketing blabber. It was hard for me to distill the what the quality improvements are (and they are there). True Trail. DYNAMIC CHAIN ENGAGEMENT. Rhythm Step progression. Vivid indexing. I feel like I am in a magic store.

Agreed. A set of Canfield or Loaded can be had for $50-70 less and they are over 100g lighter. Plus they look cooler and come in a variety of colors.

It's great to see a small company succeed because they have great product and great people. Congratulations to all involved.

Have got every single copy and never had an issue reading them...
Although the content and subscriber service did go downhill when FactoryMedia took over.
They've probably already tried, but I really hope another publisher will take them on.

thats 250 sets of Renthal stems and bars that are gonna be sitting around shops, cause anyone who's going to use this bike for it's intended purpose is gonna pull that shit right off. 50mm stem/740mm bars is XC spec by modern standards. really odd build, almost as if they...more

If you like to ride the descents cautiously and stressed about every feature that you come across, then ride with your seat post in the higher position. But if you want to have fun and not have to think about if you are going to get bucked or snagged...more

What's the cleat pocket depth? I.e., the VXi and Maltese LT are designed around the crank bros cleat and are not deep enough for a good pedal/shoe interface when running SPD cleats.

SO many sexy bits Santa Cruz put into the development and production of these bad boys. Everyone I know who rides one has had just as positive an experience as you Vital fellers. Thanks for a tasty write up.

In this case, I had the Reverb at MAX height.

The point of forward geo is to make the reach (which is measured at the middle of the headtube) longer but to reign the effective reach (perceived at the handlebars) back in by making the stem shorter. The number quoted by Mondraker on the 2015 bikes is about 30-40mm extra reach...more

To put Mondraker's geo in perspective, know that a Medium Foxy is the same length as most XL bikes from other brands.

It said one tester was 6'5". You think he should have been on a large?

Gonna back up Brandon on this one. If an XL isn't the intended size for a 6'5" tester, I don't know what world we're living in.
