Thanks for the props! Can't promise it's something we'll always be able to do, but we really felt like it was all the bike needed this time around and we were stoked that it was a fairly small change from an engineering standpoint - it was that extra little bit...more

Really cool that they made an upgrade kit for only $299! Can't think of any other manufacturer doing that in the age of planned obsolescence.

Yeah, it will look great on TV, big air and speed are what looks good on TV. Then again so did Danny Hart's winning run in 2011 and there were a lot of flat corners and off-camber. I do remember the OLN footage and agree it was pretty lame. Thanks for some how thinking I was young!

Really? The first half is a bike park with more berms than A-line. The old NORBA track that Greg Minnaar won on years ago had crazy off camber rooted sections and was rougher. Looks really fun to ride but where is the classic West Virginia tech?

Tioga is still in business? Haven't heard that name since the 90s. Interesting concept.

Great interview with Tracey Hannah! I remember first meeting her at the Durango NCS when she was 16. She has come along way, great to see her on top.

I don't want to be a dick about it but it still costs twice as much as a grip 2 fox 36. I remember when hope decided to knock thousands of pounds off their hb160 they refunded the difference to customers who'd paid the initial rrp, surely anyone who bought the...more

Great question. Between the Faast Flexx, Spank Vibrocore, and OneUp bars, the XC Gear stem, and RevGrips, there are all of sudden several ways of addressing similar things in the MTB space. It might be time for another Vital MTB Face Off to really feel out the differences...
