From committing to the whole EWS Series yes, not from doing events here and there.

I don't think the long chain stays are guilt of the lack of climbing traction.
It is a fallacy that short stays = climbing traction For an extreme example, look at hill climb motorcycles.
The long stays have draw backs, but that is not one of them. I have a Yeti with long stays and I...more

Longer chain stays help us taller folks with climbing. Keeps the front end down, helps with traction. Noticed it when I switched to longer drop outs on my Spitfire.

Odd sizing/fit; compared to my XL Banshee Spitfire this XL RFX is one inch shorter in Reach (eff/vtt is about the same it appears) but the one inch taller head tube would be perfect as it does away with the one inch spacer I need under my stem. I'm 6'2", I guess I like a taller front end. Unfortunately I can scratch an XL RFX off my list as a future purchase; a bit too short.

Specialized 'Control' tires = cut side walls. Say it ain't so. I'm shocked.

An excellent and honest review of this bike Vital. Based on my experience aboard my "Snuggler", I think you nailed it.

Quick tip to cut down on internal cable noise, instead of trying to keep them 'taught' as you did, push them into the frame as much as you can, so they are always in...more

So how do these compare to a Minion DHF & DHR combo, on the same loose over hard type trails? I'm surprised the review doesn't go there...

Gonna stick with goofy and 650b. Twenty Seven Five minus Five really bugs me.

This just makes me wonder how much one should pay a guy for riding his bike fast down a hill only 8 times in a year really. I know, there is much much much more to it. But only 8 real races a year, it's pretty silly imho.

No doubt Keene's fast, but if you compare EWS results from 2015 to 2014, it's pretty simple. Slower in races, bad luck etc, pretty sure he's not too happy with it either. I've met Curtis once, spoke briefly with him at Winter Park. Really nice guy, down ... more ยป
