Vital, I'm getting tired of "don't let the slack head tube angle fool you" and "one of the most well rounded" jargon. We hear that every review. I appreciate your hard work but this review tells me nothing.--Actually it tells me that this, the Nomad, the Spartan, the (insert any...more

typically leave my Float CTD in Trail, it only goes to Climb when I know the long climb ahead or to D in case of a familiar technical downhill. Bike is a Banshee Spitfire V2.

in response to this ("We think the ideal solution is adding a larger volume spacer with around 30% sag or even increasing the base compression tune in the shock.") why not try this recommendation out during your test, to proof that it works or not? I understand that time is limited but I've seen enough reviews with similar comments that made me wonder if you guys don't have a bag of volume spacers to just try it out and then mention the results in the same review...

It's great to see brands like Canfield, Mondraker, and Orange get some attention rather than just the industry heavyweights.

That's what I'm seeing in the CO front range. Serious money/credit being used like it's nothing. Glad people seem to be doing well ;-)

Not true. I am an engineer and make good money. Still no way I could rightfully afford one without credit being involved.

I love the looks of this new Evil but the slightly longer chain stays on the Phantom may not be a bad thing. Allows for a steeper seat tube angle too, ST angle on this Evil is pretty slack it appears. Looking forward to ride reports on vital.

Really good on 96% of your ride, far more responsive/efficient than a bigger 160ish 27.5 bike, and quite tolerable when it does get super chunky thanks to geo, suspension, and tire choice. We've been testing the Banshee Phantom lately, which has a similar disposition. You can read about...more

The review kind of reads like what I've read about the Yeti sb6, firm and fast.
Direct distribution looks promising!
