Added reply in a thread Enduro practice - Should it be standardized? 7/25/2015 11:03 PM

All I see here is a bunch of tilting at windmills. If you want rulebooks 30 feet thick, go race UCI; go race USAC – they're sanctioning enduro races now. I think EMBA is doing a fantastic job at organizing, promoting, running, and REGULATING races. As ... more »

I got in a lunch ride at Yeti 2 days ago and had similar impression of the bike. Extremely smooth, no harsh bottom, firm climbing, and it felt like closer to 6" of travel. It looks a little complicated at first but it is more simple and much easier to maintain than the previous...more

"If it ain't taped, it's raped!" The French allow it, so I don't understand why everyone is whinging. Nico is putting on a clinic here.

This is probably the highest rated suspension design. Natural anti-bob that also improves suspension sensitivity and bump absorption. You don't need platform shocks or weird linkage rate curves that all negatively affect performance in one way to gain in another. This just works without compromise.
Also, I'd...more

i remember when i was hoping to buy a trek 8000. didn't have enough money at the time, but looking at it now makes me nostalgic for high-posting steep singletrack on my aluminum 26" hardtail... good times.

after three years with a dropper post, i sometimes wonder what would happen if i tried to go...more

i don't have anti-29 bias. i love the enduro 29. had a blast on it at whistler two summers ago. could barely tell i was on a big wheel and enjoyed how the braking bumps didn't feel quite as gross on the bigger wheels. anti fat bike bias? i just hope i can get on the stache without a step stool haha

the high bb thing almost makes one wonder if the bike was originally designed to be a 130/140mm bike, then marketing got involved and said "we must have a long travel carbon enduro bike! i know, let's just put a longer shock in there."

then all the engineers secretly shook their heads...more

Honestly, we found the rear shock of the Jekyll challenging (mentioned in the review), and a number of times we had issues with the rear suspension, despite following the more involved setup procedure precisely. At one point the issue presented itself after adjusting the...more

Volume reducers typically only impact the final bit of the spring curve, so it's unlikely that the addition of a few volume spacers would change your pressure at sag much. The Debonair can maxes out at 350psi, so it should still work for you just fine. You may find yourself...more

While Vital's viewership is strongest in the US, a sizable portion of our readers are in other parts of the world. Also, Canyon may come to the US in the future.

No, the frame is dented. Too. So I have a dented frame and a new brake hose.

A big rock flew off my front tire and saw bladed my brake hose clean in half. New brake hose = $50. I'd say it's a valid complaint.
