It will be interesting to see if the Smuggler + Sentinel will both get a bump in travel like the Scout or if there will be a new Super Sentinel or whatever clever name Transition comes up with.

I don't think I have ever paid more than 60 euros for a tyre, specialised used to sell their tyres in shops for 35-45e (don't live near a spesh shop currently so don't know if that changed). With a small amount of browsing you can get top of the line Schwalbes or Maxxis online for under 60....more

$65 with no middle man strikes me as kinda expensive. MAP (minimum advertised price) for most Maxxis models is less than $70. A direct to consumer cost of $45-$50 would put them on par with the wholesale pricing of the the most expensive mtb tires available.

Not very earth-shattering at $65 dollars. If they were $40-50 that would be more newsworthy. When you have a boutique carbon FS bike, top of the line suspension and carbon hoops you usually don't lose any sleep if you spend 10-15 dollars more per tire. Not diminishing the performance of the...more

While it's great to see a new player enter the tire market at a high level on both performance and durability fronts, their "Direct to Consumer" pricing doesn't pencil out. I can buy any Specialized tire direct from Specialized or a dealer for $60. Street prices on any Maxxis I've ever...more

Great content! Thanks for the meaningful review of more affordable bikes.

One thing I would love to see — does spending 10K on a bike actually make you faster than a rig you can put together in the range of $3500-$4000? I’d absolutely love to see a review that includes timed tests in conditions...more

That is awesome looking bike!
Is that L size frame? How its climbs and how you make it that light, considering that it has coil and it is relatively heavy bike by default?

Awesome bike.

How much mud clearance does it have on the rear with 2.4 tire? And can you put bigger tire on the back besides 2.4?

Is that blue color of the frame, default/standard color from SC or it is some custom blue?
Im asking because it looks really vivid and nice.
And also what is widest tire that you can put on the back?

Thanks in advance.
