I don't think Carll means that the drugs increase muscle mass. I think he means that if someone who is very muscular wants to compete at an endurance based sport where overall strength/increased weight is a potential detrimental factor, one way of overcoming ... more »

I mean, it even says "average user rating" before each of the star ratings. I'm not sure how much more obvious vital could have made it really. If you want to take anything away from this, its that we (as users, not vital staff) need to make the ratings reflect our criticisms of the product and until then, maybe ignore the ratings and look at the comments which I always find more informative anyway.

As stated in the opening paragraph, these are the opinions left in reviews by Vital users like yourself. The ratings are an average of those left by users.

The cameras they have only cover at best 1mn30 of the track, so at the end, they do "get lost" because the top-10 riders are on 3-minute gaps. That's when they show some slomo of each run or cut other stuff in. That doesn't mean that you are not...more

Added a comment about feature SRAM's New NX Eagle 1x12 Drivetrain is the Most Affordable Yet 6/15/2018 8:53 AM

Having ridden 12 speed Gx for the past few months, I'd personally not be in any rush to upgrade if I was on 11-speed. It is a bit easier on really steep climbs in that lowest gear, admittedly. However the shifting is not as smooth and the rear derailleur cage has a design flaw that causes it to shit itself after a few months of use. The rear cage is incredibly thin where the screw comes through to attach the upper jockey wheel in place. Mine, and I think every other person I know who owns Eagle, have all found that this junction snaps, at best leaving you without a derailleur and and worst sending it into your wheel to mash that up too. I'd be pretty cautious about buying anything eagle until they get that sorted. I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has had similar problems.

But the tyre mounting has no correlation to brake rub? The two are separate entities. The brake is a hub or brake caliper alignment issue.

Hey enrico650,

I don't work full time for Vital, I do review product for them from time to time, so don't take what I write as "coming from Vital".

However, I have been to a few of these bike launch events and wanted to mention a few things...

Added a comment about product review Review - 2018 Orbea Rallon from Vital MTB Test Sessions 3/16/2018 3:55 PM

As an owner
1) Tape helps. I wrapped mine from new with road bike bar tape and black electrical tape and its silent.
2) I have pretty inwardly turned knees when I ride and don't feel like its an issue. I was worried I would be hitting my knees off the shock, but I've yet to experience any issues. Mind you, my pads don't have straps so that's maybe why I don't get any snagging either.

In regards to other people's comments on shock choice, mine has the coil but I can't say I have had bottom out issues and finesse isn't a word I would use to describe my riding style. I mean, it does bottom out at times but I have never really noticed it. I would love to try it with the float X2 mind you! Its certainly not a problem as it stands, and this is me coming from a Capra with a float X2, which would be very progressive in nature. (Whilst we are on the subject, the biggest difference I noticed when swapping bikes was the climbing ability. I find the rallon to out climb the capra by miles. The Slash must be insane uphill if the rallon was described as mediocre!)
