Added reply in a thread Should the UCI do more double headers? (in non-pandemic years) 10/17/2020 4:20 PM

As a fan I love it! Almost too difficult to enjoy all the coverage. Good problem to have. As a rider, especially as someone who has tried to be competitive as a privateer it would be much more difficult to keep the bike running, however, I always loved ... more »

Thank you Brandon for some truly awesome reads and videos! You will be missed. As for you Vital, DONT you dare think this lets you get out of reviewing DH bikes. We the people want more DH bike reviews!

The wannabes or the people like me that don’t have time or money to test all kinds of different set ups to see exactly what performs best but still want the best preforming bike they can have.

I have to assume you're referring to the author, not the comments?
If so, the comparison makes perfect sense. They are the 2 similarly priced complete builds from 1 brand and very differently speced. This really helps people wondering if they should buy and race one or the other...more

Yo! I think the sizing worked well for me, I don't always take reach numbers the same and this bike seemed to comfortably fit me. Never felt like it was too small. I imagine I could go a little bigger, but I don't feel the need to. I've always enjoyed a slightly smaller bike as my riding style in dynamic and playful. The top of that track was a blast, don't get to send it straight down the mountain anywhere much anymore! Wish the drop and some other bits were included and didn't have go arounds, but overall I enjoyed the track as it had everything.

Yeah, not my finest hour, that's racing! Appreciate the props and potential future projects, I'm always down to "send" it for the Vital viewers.

Glad you are stoked on it, enjoyed making it for you! Specialized certainly hasn't ruined anything here, it retains all of the high level ride characteristics that you enjoy while also still allowing you to monster truck to your heart's delight.

No doubt that is my go to tire setup as well, but I enjoyed really learning how to push the Butchers to the limit and honestly felt they met my needs.

Great idea and something worth exploring in future test videos. This comparison was created because Specialized currently offers both models.
