Ahhh, the old "pre-production" excuse... Also, have they done anything to improve the strength of the part the cleat clips into (the "wings")? I'm pretty happy with my Candys, but every once in a while I bash that part on a rock and destroy it.

Gwin doesn't even need a chain to win a race, so calling out the chaingide he uses is pretty moot point. Pro riders parts need to last one run... using that criteria as the basis for what you and I run isn't sound. That said, have had nothing but great luck with e13 chainguides...more

"With riders like Aaron Gwin, Sam Hill, Josh Bryceland....you know each product is thoroughly tested before it hits the shelves."

Two of the first three are actually on MRP chainguides.

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.

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a crazy new frame material, or some huge leap in suspension design, then I might feel like my 3 year old bike is outdated.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.

This article spends a fair amount of time...more
