There you go again Vital, testing a bike us "non dentist" types might also be able to afford... Love VitalMtb testing/reviews. Just seem "real". Like your not swayed by who's patent is on the linkage, which brand is on the downtube or what bike company happens to be trendy at the...more

I've always been a believer and preacher of setting up the levers so your wrists are as lined up as possible with the rest of your arm when you are in your attack position. Really for all the same reasons they describe flat is better, mainly that this ... more »

Agreed, proprietary parts usually just cause issues for the owner in the long run, not to mention limits options... Limiting options is exactly what Specialized wants though, as it gives them greater control over how their bikes are set up so no one does anything ridiculous. That is the only benefit i can see. I prefer bikes that work with the "standards" although we have a billion standards in this industry. Being able find a replacement for a blown shock on a once in a lifetime road trip, in a timely fashion anywhere, is a lot easier if it's not proprietary!

I don't always comment on Vital MTB, but when I do, I prefer to be the 1st!
Just wanted to say thanks for these reviews, I look forward to them each year. Keep up the good work!

I would absolutely love not buying a USAC license this year... As of now with the Enduro Schedule being non-sanctioned the only sanctioned race on my radar is Angel Fire National Champs... I'm assuming the Winter Park and other local Colorado DH races will be non-sanctioned. If nothing else gets added, it might be an easy decision to make. Would be fun to write USAC an email explaining why I'm not buying a license for the first time in 10 years! Been wanting to do that for a while now!

Hey, Just curious if this will be going on again next season? 2011? Also where are the races being promoted? Team Geronimo is based in the Basalt/Carbondale area and we'd definitely show up. But I don't think any of us knew about this one last summer... ... more »

Bars over 30" wide are one of the best things that have happened to DH for us bigger guys. 30.75" Seems to be about perfect for me! So much better then the 28" We used to be limited to, but if your 5'2" stick to something smaller. Trends To Die: Hating ... more »

I had no idea, he broke his femur there, I was standing about 20 ft away, just though he got shook up pretty bad. Huge bummer, hope you have a solid comeback this season Alex!
