Too short an edit for such an inspirational figure.

I've got the fleaxair and the defend pants. Agree that the flexair are great and comfy. The defend pants have the polartec grid in them and they are lovely and warm for the UK winter shit-fest that we get, when it is damp and cold. Really suited to DH days where you're not always...more

I had a baby-blue Bottlerocket with brown Revolution 32 wheels and coil suspension front and rear, I friggin LOVED it! Super cool to see this. Looks like the only "needed" update was wider bars?

I think it was cheaper for me to use a VPN subscription for 1 month and watch via Canada. What a joke. Good idea sending the letter.

It's good to hear they're back. I hope there is no animosity between the brothers.

Having ridden this stuff myself, albeit short-term tests only, I disagree with the statement that it "doesn't do anything better." The shifting performance under load is impressive, far better than Eagle, and it does also offer 1 extra cog of range. It also seems less sensitive...more

XTR has never been, and will never be, about value for your dollars for a value conscious rider looking to max their experience while minimizing their expenses. So its not fair to hold it to that expectation.
The reviewer is holding it to it's intended standard. Which is being their flagship best possible performing groupset, price be damned.
If someone says "This is the best tasting tequila we have ever made and that you can currently experience". You are going to be expecting the best damn tasting tequila you've ever had. Very different from someone saying, "Hey, for $20, this tequila is pretty damned good!"

If I tell you, will you buy me a beer? Haha. I've used the nipples on some wheelset's before. They are really nice and add some subtle color which is unique for a brass nipple.

Loic is a genuine dude. Props to Specialized for letting him be who he is and say what he wants. Too many fake, brand-protecting personalities in this sport. Mountain biking needs more people like Loic.

Brilliant. So authentic, this is what I love about DH and Vital.

Loic is dating a World Cup XC rider, if I recall correctly, hence the ribbing from The Goat.

How are you liking the Onyx SC? Coming off of another DVO fork, or is this your first one?

With Gee's comments on rebound and Bruni's interview, are we seeing riders moving towards softer suspension settings (maybe more progression) and faster rebound? I think an early inside line podcast talked about this a bit (can't remember who). I tried this myself and...more

I have personally not ridden the Smuggler, so I can't help you there.
