Wish someone would make another moto style rear end ala Rotec from the 90s! That sender looks cooler without the seatstays!

Greg Minaar has a new V10 and it is longer than the previous v10 in XXL with a 475mm reach. Are you really surprised? What surprises me is how long he has been riding on bikes that are way too small for him! The guy is a factory sponsored pro and only ... more »

As a owner of a Pole EVOLINK 176 with a 1340mm wheelbase, 63º headangle, 460mm chainstays and a reach of 520mm I can say hands down this is the best bike I have ever had! I'm 180cm (5'11"). My bike is an L. Sure an Pole in size XL (535mm) or a nicolai ... more »

I think the negative stem setup looks sick! So moto. I been riding 10mm stem for a while now on my Pole EVOLINK176 (their old DH frame) and love it!

I sure hope so! It will allow shorter people to size up in frame! Now they just have to add some rear tire clearance and come out with an aluminium version and I might consider getting one

If someone lent it to me I would definitely ride it! It looks like it could be a whole lot of fun! Would I buy it? Not likely, way too expensive for what it is!

Loved this article&video! Might be one of my favorites on Vital EVER!!!
Would love to see you guys test out long and slack bikes vs normal bikes e.g. Nicolai geometron and Pole Evolink vs any of the bikes in this test.

I love Vital raw footage! Anyone else feel like most of those guys look like they are riding bikes that are way too small for them? You can tell by how some of them look like they are going over the bars of how much they hang off the back!

If your front wheel is tuck is a problem on your 29er then I think you need to look at your headangle rather than your fork offset. How much travel do you have on the fork and what is your headangle? If it is +150mm and +65º then you need to go slacker. ... more »

Added reply in a thread Have You Gone from 27.5 to 29er But Then Back to 27.5? 12/14/2017 7:34 AM

I tested the bigger wheels on my bike last summer and was blown away with the extra speed and how easy it went over stuff. I didn't find much of difference in handling. The only thing that is on my mind is whether or not strength seeing as I can't run ... more »

Added reply in a thread Do tire inserts mean it's time to rethink tire design? 11/30/2017 5:33 AM

I used to run Schwalbe supergravity tires with tubes a while back and was quite happy with that setup. It was an improvement weight wise compared to full on DH tires. Then 2 years ago I made the switch to singleply tires with procore setup. I managed ... more »

Added reply in a thread Pole - Machine - will Vital review it? 11/30/2017 4:53 AM

Why? Because is actually interested in this super bike? I have a Pole EVOLINK and am very interested in this new bike too!

Added reply in a thread New MTB design or monstrosity? 11/30/2017 4:48 AM

More maneuverability? That bike already looked way too small! Who wants chainstays shorter than the already too short 425mm on a mtb? It is a nice but totally useless idea in my opinion!

As someone with an actual long bike (Pole EVOLINK 176) with a reach of 520mm, wheelbase of 1340mm, chainstays of 460mm and headangle of 63º I agree with Tristan Mayor when he says only actual riding can tell you whether or not a bike will ride well. ... more »
