Been on this post for a few months now and can echo the review. It's reliable, well priced, and just works...The travel adjust is super easy and a nice feature as well!

So much boring shit
No custom-geo, long travel hardtail mullet titanium gearbox bikes? (Nordest cycles btw)
No TRP 2.3mm rotor brakes? Ebike/DH inspired.
No DVO onyx love? There’s a coil for first 30% of travel..plus the ebike single crown version has 45% more bushing...more

This is just my opinion, and I completely get it if I get a lot of heat for it, but it feels like the DHF is becoming what the Nevegal became - highly praised and widely loved, but too many other good options started popping up to just stick with it for traditions sake. It’s a...more

I've been on the new e13 for a while now and gotta say I'm not going back to Maxxis. My last 3 Maxxis tires had the wobbly casing and I had to deal with warranty. Huge pain in the ass. The e13 Mopo compound is wearing much better than the last MaxxGrip I had, and man the e13 have insane grip. Maxxis is far from the end all be all. Choice is good.

Yup. Been running them for a while and absolutely love them. I found the Gen 1 better than Gen 2 (Gen 2 is good just a bit more slow rolling), but the new Gen 3 tires are the best. They moved back to a slightly rounder profile and the new Mopo soft compound ... more »

Been on these for a few months now. Had a few rock strikes that I was sure were going to do some severe damage but they shrugged em off with barely a scratch. Inner bearing bulge has not really been noticeable to me unless my foot accidentally ends up in the wrong place on the...more

Nice review. I've been on these for the past 3 months and love them. Tons of grip and super tough after numerous rock strikes. I was a big fan of the originals as well, but happy to see that these are thinner and lighter, and that the unnecessary spin control is gone.

Great looking bikes. Nice job Commencal! As for the wheel comments below, me and my buddies have been on the same E13 LG1 DH Plus wheels and the've been awesome. WAY better than the POS Stans I was on before...

I've been on the new E13 Plus pedals (I had the original pedals and loved them) and I'm super pleased. Insane grip and super solid build. My last few pedals developed some play pretty early but these have been solid for many months now...They've taken some nasty rock strikes and came out unscathed as well. I'm a fan!

Added a comment about product review First Ride: E*thirteen TRS Plus 9-50t Cassette 12/10/2019 12:23 PM
Milkman55

Been using this cassette with Shimano XT 12 speed shifter and derailleur and a KMC chain and it works great. My hub didn't have a Microspline freehub available, and I didn't want to buy a whole new rear wheel, so this solution was perfect. It's also a nice chunk lighter than an XT 12 speed cassette. Highly recommend!

If you buy the SLX cassette, shifter, chain and derailleur it costs about the same as a high end light weight 11 speed 9-46 cassette (like E13), but you still need the driver, and you'll end up with a heavier drivetrain (by about . half pound). You could buy a Sunrace cassette too if weight isn't an issue (they are heavy though). Changing to GX Eagle is also an option, but will add a bunch of weight and be more expensive. Those reasons above is why I stayed 11 speed with a wider range cassette!

I've had 2 pairs for about a year. Still trust them more than the RF and SRAM carbon cranks I broke in well under a year. I agree the older cranks were sub par (but no worse than the early SRAM X01 carbon cranks out there that broke a ton). The new cranks ... more »

Would you say this tire had a plethora of knobbies?

I like it. I run a Minion SS normally but I'd give this a whirl.

I've been using the Minion SS and I love it, traction is amazing even on mud. This one looks great.
