You are actually free to have fun in NZ and ride how you want. Each lift pass comes with a guy ironically named Paver. He follows you around with a shovel. Keeps you happy and him employed.

This took me a few days to listen to but I loved it. Nice work Vital!

I was fortunate to ride with Charlie and his see his van when he rolled through my neighborhood after I chewed out one of his sponsors for him making a comment I was unhappy about!!

True, but the leverage ratio and travel will change with those larger changes. That would need to be addressed. Doesn't Raaw or Privateer someone offer 2 links/shock stroke change depending on rider weight?

I think long-travel bikes like this are the bees knees. I can only have one mountain bike due to money and space. I chose a long-travel bike, and I love it. My bike is a 180 front/160 rear Megatower, but pretty similar to the Nomad reviewed. It climbs technical stuff surprisingly well, and I'm able to...more

Awesome review! One of the main points of feedback we have received is in regards to the need for a 12mm wrench for adjustments which as you have mentioned can be not very convenient for trail side tuning. To address this we have made a small 3D printed tool that has both a 12mm...more

As an old school downhiller, I sold my last DH bike 15 years ago and have been riding Freeride, Super Enduro whatever 170mm bikes since, and racing DH on them. Why?? Dropper post! Versatility! I have such a hard time owning such an expensive single use ... more »

1. Interesting they're all on 50mm stems and coil shocks. 2. I'm shocked they're still riding 203mm rotors. 3. I can't/don't believe they're not running inserts.

That was amazing!

I feel the long bikes didn’t work back then because the small wheels would “push” too much. Not enough weight on the front wheel with its small contact patch.

Interesting watching the riders hitting their knees on their grips a few times.

Seems like the bikes were setup softer too, trying to get grip, the modern bikes are so much more hooked up they can be set up firmer. I like modern bikes set up soft for max control though!! Call me old school!
