The Runt works quite well and does what Diaz says it does. It is a great value and a sweet upgrade that goes into your fork in about 5 minutes.

I agree with the race vid analysis. BT pulls ahead of himself with just a few extra pedal strokes and doesn't get the 2 seconds back during the rest of the run. This highlights perhaps the most important thing in enduro and pedally DH racing, that putting down power is the easiest place to make time. Another thing about a race pace run in what looks like AZ- you better not go off the trail, cuz everything has giant thorns!

Cool vid, thanks!

Agree. Longer travel enduro bike with fast tires is f u n. Its easy to forget how slow the big meats are on rolling terrain till you ride some fast rollers.

Super fast. Definitely not as grippy as my normal dhr /aggressor set up. But it's fun to feel a nice light tire set up.

Eddie out with Pivot? Wow, that'd be tough for Pivot cuz Ed is damn fast and a great marketing guy too. Santa Cruz would do well to have him. Eddie, Iago and Mark would make a great team.

This looks cool. I am very curious as to how they are gonna catch the cheaters who hot rod their motors. Even a few extra watts could make a difference in this format with the climbing stages.

How does the shifter and derailleur work with an XO1 cassette is what I'd really like to know.

If your SRAM Eagle drivetrain isn't shifting well try 2 things. First, set the B tension screw per spec. Use the plastic SRAM tool and its quite easy to get it right. Still not super crisp? Try a Shimano SP41 housing and a coated cable. With these two things and proper cable tension, SRAM Eagle stuff works really really well, like super crisp.

Would I change out a hub for the new Shimano cassette? No way, but I might cross shop a shimano shifter and derailleur if the price was close.

Interesting! I've run Code Rs and RSCs on multiple bikes with great success. Love the updated Code stuff. Easy to bleed, easy to find parts & pads, just plain work. (edit: for me)

Weird and expensive. For every enduro sold how much is going to that ridiculous video? On a unit to unit basis, its more than $1. Over produced. Next to no riding. The story sucked.

Give me some raw ripping and fun-having. Leave the "I hope I get to produce the next Stranger...more

Aggressor 2.5 on a 30mm width rim on my SB150. No issues with rub or flex. 7mm clearance on the drive side chain stay.

BT makes it sound like a stiffer rear end may be in the works for the '20 model year bikes though, or perhaps I am reading too much into his comments in the vid?

Nice video review. This bike looks wicked.
