Good point! It's all the more baffling because so many people want to spec their bikes the way the pro enduro athletes are setting them up!

Ok seriously, how are manufacturers still spec'ing bikes with long stems and narrow bars?! Almost every review I have read in the past four-ish years has stated something to the effect of: "we switched out the bar and stem immediately because they did not suit the bikes capability"....more

"Every" review on Vital? Sure about that? The Slash truly does shine as an all around ripper in its class, and it climbs far better than the head angle would lead most to believe. That's why those specific statements are included in this particular review.

Great review. It's unusual to see an extra large frame being reviewed. Also, props for including the real weight of an extra-large bike. I also appreciate that you noted that the right side reverb lever mounted on the left side would be a benefit to setup like this. Why is this so overlooked?
Pity about the narrow bars, short stem, and press fit bottom bracket. PF95 alone dissuaded me from buying a Trek. Instead, I opted for a Yeti. Trek, if you are listening, it's not too late to change your ways. Threaded BBs are what real riders want.

Killer promo for Squamish - great riding and clearly world-class trails.

No rear brake, or shift cable? Sup with that?
