I'll definitely be really interested in Zerode once it gets electronic shifting. I messed around with a guy's Zerode at a campsite, and the suspension felt great, but the grip shifter felt about 20 years behind my AXS lol.

Apparently most people haven't noticed that after you click "Submit", it takes the gerbils powering the VitalMTB forums a minimum of 2 minutes to fulfill their request, and keep clicking "Submit" a dozen or so times.

I just love ultra arrogant comments like this. Parking lots full of mechanics, techs, engineers...you name it. They're all meticulously doing installs and getting right "most" of the time. All of them have the same if not more knowledge than Alex here.

But somehow he's the one person who has decided...more

Yeah the Conti names are dumb. I'm also wondering if they're going to make trail / ultra soft available. There's no sharp rocks here, so I run EXO+ with light inserts for sidewall support. I've tried that back to back compared to heavier casing, and ... more »

So, still lighter than a Michelin?

Why oh why are Transition using the crap Acros headsets. The amount of times I've worked on a bike (ex bike shop mechanic) with internal routing and found a rusted BB due to water ingress is laughable.

Looking forward to the day when mountain bike companies admit running cables through the headset bearings was laughably stupid and go back to cable routing that doesn't lock customers into proprietary headsets and higher maintenance costs. But unfortunately we probably have a rough few years ahead of us as companies...more

Nice updated geo.

No inside info, but I'd be surprised if they don't make the new Megatower available as either 29 or MX (but not convertible back and forth), like the V10 and Heckler. There's a lot of racers who prefer MX, even riding size L or XL, and this is their ... more »

The SB-150 and -130 are due to be updated this year. Maybe they're waiting to release those with video/photo of her riding them?

The milling pattern on the upper link looks quite a bit different than the Cascade Enduro link. I'd expect Cascade wouldd use a similar design since they're both the Spec 6-bar layout. I think it's more likely that it's Spec trying things out for a new ... more »

I think it's a Float X based on the blue compression adjuster. Although I can't see the rebound knob, which is normally on this side, just below the compression adjuster.

That's a new AXS Reverb too. The collar is different (not big chonky silver thing) and the battery part at the back under the saddle looks different.

Yeah, I'm definitely more interested in TRP knowing a few high level riders have chosen them when they had options from S/S. Like, Neko is running TRP brakes but SRAM drivetrain, and basically said that he was choosing his favorite components, rather ... more »

I don't think he was talking shit, I think it's more likely there's something funny going on with the kinematics of the prototypes. In one of the interviews (maybe Vital?), he said as soon as he got on his new bike, it instantly felt much smoother in ... more »

Or maybe it's different tires? Although since he covered the front hub, wheels probably make more sense.

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 1/11/2022 11:55 AM

That would be my guess too. Especially the "half the bike" part - just the back half.
