As someone who is sometimes lucky enough to get to go and shoot racing, there are few things I look forward to more than seeing Blenki appear in the viewfinder. If anybody can make shit look good, it's Blenki!

To the point of a bigger bottom out bumper, I have a rather linear sb5.5 fitted with an elevensix that has exactly that. I won't claim it's an equal substitute for a bit more progressive spring curve, but it's amazing how a seemingly low-tech solution goes a long way to changing...more

Great comparison. Really does bear out how the rider (fitness and skill) is the most important factor.

How about the same with 27.5 - 160 - 170mm travel bikes?

Awesome test, seems like overall the performance of all the bikes is very similar.

Other timed tests I would love to see:
Capra 27.5 vs Capra 29 (same build)
Entry level vs top spec bike (same tyres please)
Commencal Meta 4.2 vs Commencal Meta Power with power off on descents

Bturman, what are your overall thoughts on 29er fork offset? Was the 44 vs 51 noticeable when switching between bikes?

Agreed but disregard wheel size. Bikes fit in the same category regardless of wheel size. I'm not exclusive to wheel size when I shop for a bike. In my opinion the wheel size isn't that big of a factor when classifying the bike.
