What a perfect username.

Yes, the placebo effect is a real thing, especially when you're discussing minor changes to the same product. To say that 99 out of 100 riders wouldn't know they had an entirely different fork on the front of their bike is a ridiculous claim, however, and I'll take...more

I was curious about that too... I don't think this is a Metric-standard shock or frame (?).

"Metric 230x57.5mm"
Huh? Thought the whole point of metric shocks was more even shock sizing intervals, such as 45, 50, 55mm travel

They could pull a Gwin and just use what they want without sponsorship.

I fully back the BMX idea. There's generally a very evident line between riders who grew up on a BMX bike and those who didn't. My only problem is that I don't bounce anymore when I fall...

FYI - Transition & Rock Shox had to get a new rocker link made for the test bike because of this exact point.

That's because they wouldn't fit in your frame and if you somehow did get it to fit in your frame, the suspension kinematics would be all sorts of wacky.

what no one can make out on the videos (or pics) is just how deep the moon dust at VDS is. You think "ok, I'm going to put my front wheel there on that smooth bit" only to find out it's a 12" deep hole filled with dust and a death rock or two. This track is absolute carnage and chaos. And it's only getting worse as the riders come down. WORLD CHAMPS BABY!!!

Trek is the new Porsche: keep it the same but make it different.

This is probably the first bike-specific tool I got and it's definitely one of those tools that removed so much unneeded frustration and cursing when working on my bike. Every time I use it, I literally wonder, "what the hell was I thinking before owning ... more »

Shooting/edit-wise, this is the best that VitalRAW has ever been. I love the new slomo bits too (just not too many, ok?) So lucky to watch this free content. Well done @steelcitymedia and @creativeconcept

Is this even the same front triangle?.. main pivot looks different, or am I way wrong?

Interesting that he's not on the latest iteration of the Gambler, but I guess that's only for the Gstaad boys at this point?
