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.

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

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.

Thanks man! The opinion of these rims seems to be pretty positive, but I haven't seen an "official" review of them yet.

Here - I'll give you my short review: I've ridden them all season long and have had absolutely zero problems. They are light, stiff, priced right and durable (yes, I said it...). The only downside is you need to be careful with tire selection as the width can overly square off the profile....more

That looks like a blast! Very similar to our winter style of riding around here - low speed skills and try to ride over anything you can find!

Wow, talk about a blatant marketing scam! Get a new bike when your old one isn't fun anymore, if that ever happens!

Eye popping: MSRP: $319.99 USD (PER SIDE, EXCLUDING rotors and mounts). So a set of ft and rear will set you back ~$800. Zee Germans are drunk.
