Do this more often! This is the kind of info we need when shopping for new bikes, not highly subjective reviews that say the same thing about every bike!

I really like how he showed the highlights instead of a 30 minute long POV video.

One of the few times I've enjoyed a POV video.

The answer is "Not as much as the bike industry wants you to think it has."

Every time I see something silly, like fat tires, or electronic shifting touted as the next big thing, I'm happy because I could care less about that crap. The industry is clutching at straws trying to come up with new crap. Once there's a crazy new frame material, or some huge leap in suspension design, then I might feel like my 3 year old bike is outdated. I don't see that happening any time soon.

Yeah, uh, a picnic table drop wouldn't even bottom out my trail bike. If he bottomed out his DH bike off a picnic table, he'd had serious problems in WC races.

What's the size range? I usually wear US 14, usually have to squeeze into a 13. But, even 13 can be hard to find for bike shoes.

I think Shimano is confused. We didn't get rid of the front derailler because we only wanted one shifter. We got rid of the front derailler because they add needless complication!

Bike review sites should take this as a sign that they are NOT telling people who are shopping for a new bike what they need to know!

Please take what I am saying from an obviously biased commenter who owns a Pivot Mach 6.

I was waiting for this particular review to identify any biases the reviewers may have. Big factory MTB bike review vs. small boutique MTB review, etc.

Intense Carbine w/CCDBA and Pike. I put the Pike into Trail mode on very smooth climbs, which are pretty rare for me. I'd rather ride up techy stuff where the suspension helps. After demo-ing some Treks equipped with CTD, I purposely bought a bike that ... more ยป

Honestly - I wouldn't plan on ever seeing too much "official" on these when it comes to reviews. The company has their little niche but by no means is trying to be a "brand". The closest you'll see is a review on the Ibis wheelset - which is fairly similar.

But yeah - in my humble opinion, go...more

I have 2 sets. No problems with either. In contrast, my buddy has gone through 3 of their rims so far. We both agree the performance is awesome. As for square tires, we both think the width takes a Hans Dampf to the next level.
