I second the fantastic coverage, well done Vital. Way more thorough and in-depth than other sites on the interwebz. Also, pretty sweet that you have a direct line of contact to the dude who built your shock. That's very impressive.

"the first shock that has a lever that doesn't change the overall damping characteristics of the shock" (paraphrasing)

Um what? I thought that was the whole point.

This is such a contrast to the way Fox, Rockshox, or almost any other MTB suspension brand talks about their product. Every other brand goes into extreme detail about the mechanical and design elements of their products, and old Torkell said exactly diddly about why Ohlins products...more

"Every" review on Vital? Sure about that? The Slash truly does shine as an all around ripper in its class, and it climbs far better than the head angle would lead most to believe. That's why those specific statements are included in this particular review.

I encourage you to read it...more

Great article. As a bike-fitter in my previous job, I have been trying to get people to look more holistically at their geometry figures, with an emphasis on reach. The more this gets known, the better in my opinion.

Eh, fair enough I guess- to each their own. The write-up is excellent though, definitely gives enough info to make a decision even if I personally may disagree with the rating. Cheers!

Cheers for the comment, WaffleStomp. The Stereo's overall rating is a combination of many factors. Value/price, spec, geo, weight, overall construction, and the little details are very good - better than most, actually. The ride qualities were also good on the majority of...more

While I totally agree with you that more women should be involved in our sports, especially from a sponsor's perspective, your last statement is not correct. Brendog has sold more Gamblers than Emilie has. More people follow his Instagram, watch his ... more »

Why you assume any mention of "green" is less than genuine is bizarre. If a company truly has have a green initiative, it should absolutely be mentioned in marketing where applicable.

Huh... I've seen the alu prototype before but I guess I just had my hopes up. The chainstay looks fairly horizontal with the ground in the pic and you'd think a 40 would raise it up a bit more than the 36. But, I do see the small rotor in the back now ... more »

Is this the same bootleg demo that was held for Interbike? Isn't that not open to the public, meaning that these were "industry" affiliated people and usually buyers for shops trying out the bikes? If that is so, many of them might be ill-equipped since they are here for the tradeshow and simply trying out bikes for their shop, rather than a sample population for potential buyers. There are many buyers who are absolute rubbish at riding bikes and this is most likely one such person.
