EWS is the first sport I've been interested in for a while. It reminds me of the old WRC days when you had many manufacturers with extremely talented drivers competing on the toughest roads around the world! So I do hope they start offering more coverage of it. I think it could...more

Sarsha Huntington giving the live commentary of Nico making the nose wheeling around the corner. Reckons she is pretty Sic too. And she is.

The Polar bear stopping on the tree and calling "that was nice" was pretty funny too.

Richie is a friend of mine and OC and BB have pretty much nailed it. The idea that he should ditch his bike and son to elevate journalism just shows how far removed from real world mountain biking Pavlov must...more

Perhaps he has kids and a life and then makes his own bikes on the side and then goes out and races them because it's not enduro unless you're racing and then has time after the racing to give this interview...more

Hey Pavol how about getting a vasectomy and selling your bike? Then you won't have to worry about cleaning your bike or having children.

Interesting, I actually just bought this bike. Shortened the chain to the correct length, fixed the slightly tweaked rear der., and added some chainstay wrap. Shifting pretty perfect now! After about 10 rides, running 30%sag and having slowed the rebound a touch, the shock is breaking...more

"notable sources have set the M6 as the benchmark in the enduro / trail category." consider your sources. have you seen those guys ride? have they ever raced an enduro event? where did they test the bike?

imo enduro & trail are not the same thing. one is a race and the other is just...more

Dollars to donuts that they rode more than just that trail for testing. EDIT: ^ Yep.

This was just one of many trails used to test the bikes. Unfortunately we're unable to post our video footage from the burlier trails (think non-stop rock action). While this trail is on the smoother side of the spectrum, it still offers some great...more

I appreciate Vital not posting video (or names) of the "good" trails in SLO.
As you now know there are some sick ones that need to stay on a need to know basis.

And this trail is not in San Luis Obispo, but half hour away in Montana de Oro State Park. And...more

Yeah, I could see it getting you close enough when comparing bikes of similar use, but man, Reach is a better and more accurate number, IMO. If you have Reach and Stack available, DT length is only novelty.

For onsite measuring, DT length does top the...more

It’s a bit disconcerting to hear you guys call out trails like ___ so casually. I like to see that you are doing bike testing in an area that I ride, because for me it legitimizes the review. My main concern is keeping the identity of most of the trails under wraps.
___ is a delicate situation...more
