What bike/size do you have now? Do you like it or not? What are you looking for? Stability or tight trail prowess?

Has anyone ever actually damaged cables running under the downtube, or is the negative comment about this routing more of a "what if"?


Also, if you found it to ride too high in its travel and didn't feel supple on small bumps, it sounds like you could have set up the...more

I'd say the mediocre rating Vital gave it is a testament to how good of a rider Jerome is. The bike doesn't make the rider but it still has to be there!

Vital, thanks as always for the test sessions!

Sounds like a great bike - especially the cheaper model. I have to say I like Vital MTB reviews. There are 3 things I picked up in this story that show you are objective and don't just go with the current trend. 1. The Patrol has a threaded BB (good one Transition!) which you like and...more

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.

I encourage you to read it...more

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.
