It seems to me this is universities trying to protect children from the lessons their fathers tried to teach them. There's some solid humor in that. Good read Spomer, anybody that loves bikes would get a splash of nostalgia from this

A few years back, when the site location had pre-built features, there would be more info out there. Now that Rampage has gone back to a more raw format, there isn't any pre-building to cover and share.
In addition, the site is on full lockdown (riders and diggers only) for the first 5 days. Starting tomorrow, more media types will be allowed at the venue and we'll start to see more of the goods.

That's a good look at the course without any special production to it, good info before the live webcast. Thanks for doing that Gee.

Bingo, we are on the same page here.

A top level race program would go a long way to legitimize the brand and this new direction for them, much as YT did with their WC efforts. The dollar for dollar value is an interesting paradigm, I feel like we could unpack that for hours around a campfire, getting whisky drunk. I have a lot of thoughts on that, particularly given my prior role in the industry. Alas, this is not the place to discuss them.

I'll leave you with this (before I too, go ride) the next time I'm in your area, I'm hitting you up. Mostly because your garage looks bad ass and I used to have a bug-eye nearly identical to yours.

Darn Russ, that's a pretty rude thing to say...I had to make sure I wasn't on that Canadian site.

I went to Park City, rode a bike, thought it was bitchin' so that's what I wrote. As contributors, we have day jobs and aren't lining our pockets with ad money, no tin foil hat conspiracies around these parts.For fun, you may enjoy looking around the internet and reading that other writer/riders loved this bike too.

But yes, the name absolutely sounds like a pizza joint and we were told the grey is a near identical match to the Tundra/4Runner, effing sick.

Yo! Nice work on snagging a new rig! I honestly do not have any notes on what the specific pressures were nor do I remember. We started off by just using the chart on the back of the fork, though I found that to be a bit soft for my liking. My 2 cents would be to start with the recommended pressure and zero compression damping. Based on how that feels, add pressure or damping depending on how you like the bike to ride. You could even go lower on the pressure but bump up compression damping to prevent diving. Hope that helps man!

Solid observations indeed, let's get this cleared up. You are correct, the chart provided by Trek is a bit misleading with such a slack seat tube angle. In looking over my notes from the press camp, Trek did in fact steepen the actual seat tube angle by one degree, making it a hair over 75 degrees. The 78 notation in my article is a typo. Regardless of what the numbers say, the bike rode how it rode and was impressive on the climbs.

For what it's worth,, you will see a review of a 78 degree actual, coming very soon...

The flip chip is really less of a geometry adjustment and more of a means to offset the addition of fatter tires.

Not sure how the two compare to each other, I haven't ridden the new Nomad. The hammock effect was indeed reduced on the new lower link bikes but the theory of initial setup is still applicable.

I rode a medium in both bikes, they fit me beautifully.
