Sometimes this industry just can't help itself - DH Bike sales (and the industry as a whole) are already suffering. After the race this weekend or Ft. Bill, when 29ers leave 650b in the dust....no one in their right mind will be plunking down 4k-9k for ... more »

True dat Spomer. Also there is a lot of talk about tall guy vs short guy, straight track vs tech track, fun vs speed....which is all good and dandy, but what about some actual scientific analysis of the physics of 27.5 vs 29? There must be some boss nerd mtbers out there that could enlighten us all with some analysis? As a side note, how the hell is there minimal discussion about Fayolle rocking a remote lockout rear shock?!?! Particularly on a track like Lourdes where there seems to be limited opportunity for boost mode....but come Ft. Bill, Cairns, ect....that seems like a bigger advantage than dropper posts we saw dudes rocking at Pietermaritzburg some years back. There has to be a story .... or podcast there?!?! ;-)

The MTB gods speakith: "All ye commoners take note of thy large wheels of royalty and prepare yourself for Ft Williams. I give you 5 weeks time" PS: Only 7 rounds and no throw-aways. Something needs to be done about that.

Ill tell you one thing 29er DH bikes *might* ruin: DH bike sales for the entire industry for 2017. DOA. Kaput. Finnito. Laters pajama boys. Just as the selling season gets underway. If all the hype about 29er times proves true and the 29er posse puts ... more »

Transition is killing it right now. Rad group of guys making rad bikes and having fun doing it. Both the Patrol and Scout are on my short lists of next bikes.

Easy there, Lace! We often add tokens or bands when experiencing bottom-out issues. Nearly every Vital Test Sessions review discusses the addition or removal of air volume spacers, compression, and the like to dial in a setting that works best for our testers and the terrain...more

I caught that contradiction as well. Interesting difference in philosophy. Car's, moto's and other vehicles all seem heavily dependent on damping....but who knows...maybe bikes are different enough. The initial reports on this new suspension design seem ... more »

Reads like an Onion headline: "Guy who does work for company, says their bikes are best ever." It's certainly intriguing and damn rad to see something different from VPP/DW, horst, or single pivot. Some of the geo numbers are a bit interesting, but I ... more »

I heard Remy will be running some wheels that won the world cup overall last year.

Yes, you are correct saying that the XT derailleur works better than the XTR. The XT was designed to run a 42-46 and the XTR was designed to run 40T. Good review guys, keep it up.

Word on the street is that the Fox / Shimano BFF relationship (which competed with SRAM/Rockshox) soured a few years ago. As more and more suspension players are on the market and hungry to make inroads, expect to see more teams/riders taking deals from ... more »

Wow - SRAM looses Specialized factory, that is big news after they lost Gwin last year and considering how close SRAM is with Specialized. Makes you wonder if they are having $ issues despite taking Shimano to school on 1x sales the past few years. Is ... more »

Let me keep this simple for you. Those sideknobs on this and the Michelin are like no other tire made. There's not a single tire in existence outside of those two that have sideknobs that thick. And yes they are literally carbon copies. Not 'looks like'. They are identical. Therefore if...more
