A guy from Maxxis told me that the Minion SS with Silkshield is essentially the EXO+, just without the name.

Finally some good Raw from EWS. This is absolutely insane! You dont see top riders so much in trouble into the UCI DH worldcup...

I definitely think you are missing a bike...
But solid review nonetheless, really enjoyed that!

Although I think you went halfway on this. You wanted to do a back-to-back, strict comparison of the bikes. Well bike makers don't make the parts, so why would you have different parts on each...more

You guys should do an aggressive 27.5 trail bike test, and include some bikes like the new Transition Scout, Canyon Spectral, Pivot Mach 5.5, and the Guerrilla Gravity ShredDogg

My first thought was, "Those dudes are so stoked!". Cool to see such an invested group of individuals basically building the equivalent of a castle for a WC track.

Damn I need more of this in my life. Can we make this a biannual tradition?

Pretty surprised to see a post here from barstool considering they encourage injuring cyclists by intentionally running them off the road or running them over with their cars. Major faux pas Vital.

Agreed, by far the best article and pics on the Capra that appeared online today. Well done! Nothing game changing but another solid and well priced bike from YT. A shoot out with the Enduro, Nomad and Wreckoning would be fun.

I wonder what the greatest injustice in mountain bike history was?

I want high end shocks, brakes and tires. House brand the piss out of it with external cable routing from there. I'm not a weight snob. I want performance componentry and could care less about the rest. A basic drivetrain with clutch derailleur is 10 times better than old school stuff anyway.

Cannot believe that the old argument of "there's not the right girl for the team" pass that easy in the conversation.

Thank you! This is a fun one to design! One design goal was to get the CG as low as possible and mount the rear shock as low as possible in the frame.
