I said you "risk" voiding your warranty, I never claimed this modification "would" void it.

Double coil and still under 30lbs. Well done. That tire spec is scary though...

To start I'm not sure Chris is arguing his theories and ideas are 100% right for every single kind of bike rider. Reading between the lines, you seem like someone who might be just as happy on a downsized single pivot or some kind of aggressive hard tail. Put...more

You're not mentioning the frame sized tested here. You're 180cm, right in between their M & L with a gap of 30mm reach. I'm 183cm and curious which option fitted you the most

If I really wanted to avoid the results I'd just not visit Vital / PB until I've watched the race.

We are a welcoming and understanding portal, that lets the user decide what they want to see. It couldn't be easier to make sure you get to watch the race without spoilers, just don't visit news sites or social media until you've seen it - it's the easiest decision in the world. My point is that it is...more

The article wasn't really about shaming Peter, but more to trigger this (important) discussion. As we can see already here in the comments, people are in two camps about this topic, and will likely stay in their chosen camp regardless.

I agree, watching the race unspoiled was AWESOME. It was so good,...more

Books and films are very different from a major sporting event, e.g. the ending of a book is never a newsworthy item in itself, whereas the outcome of a race clearly is.

You might think that, but our experience points to the opposite. Reporting the news with an exciting title that actually describes the news item seems to get better views than the "click here to find out who won" version. And to continue the analogy I gave in the text, under which circumstances would...more

does anyone expect the results of the superbowl to be withheld by espn, nbc, pbs, hbo, nytimes, drudge report, pennysaver and the appalachian gazette until everyone watches the game? fwiw, we don't spoil WC race results in titles or even the subtitles (text that social media picks up and could spoil)....more

This email and comments are a bit much... Vital is a news site and it's there obligation to report the news. If they didn't report the news of gravity MTB timely, I probably wouldn't visit the site.

ESPN, Nytimes, WSJ, etc. all report the winner of major events in real-time. Shit, I get a push...more

Ouch, the geo hasn't changed much if you size down. This shock location offers superior performance... (Trust me I would not have released it if it didn't!) in a stronger package with lower center of gravity, there really is no area where the performance does...more

From what I’ve been reading it looks like NBC is only showing the XC. What are some good VPNs?
