I believe new Thomson stems use 3mm allen heads. I've always loved Thomson but the new stem bolts are horrible.

Just read it in a French accent, it will make perfect sense! whistling
OK so I did proof read 'most' of it but in my defense I'm pretty much half French and definitely more than halfway towards fully senile, so there you have it. Guilty as charged.

Now I'm wondering whether or not to fix it, I...more

Seems like an "OK" value when it comes to DTC models. The YT Capra 27.5 Base or the Commencal Meta AM 29 Ride offer slightly improved build kits, better geo, proven performance, and a better unboxing experience for $100 less. 70 Degree seat angle???

Great content! Thanks for the meaningful review of more affordable bikes.

One thing I would love to see — does spending 10K on a bike actually make you faster than a rig you can put together in the range of $3500-$4000? I’d absolutely love to see a review that includes timed tests in conditions...more

I've been riding a 2019 Scout for just over a year, and I agree in part with this review. It is definitely the most fun-loving bike I've ever owned. And while it's no speed climber, it's intended to party downhill. The added girth allows you to blast through chunk 130 mm has no...more

Disagree with the stance of this article from an opinion basis, but there is also numerous incorrect pieces of info, I also do not appreciate Vital's choice of image for the lead (Racer guy hammering, and some dude bobbling on a roach emtb with no helmet, no proper attire, etc....that misleads the reader that...more

I hear you on the blue stripe gripe. I actually went to the effort to paint it black but that ended up looking worse. Oh well. As far as the vent holes go I love them as it gets pretty hot in the desert here and most of my rides aren’t the mythical mud filled shred fests you refer to. I have a pair of old Shimano am 45s for those days.

A RAW aluminum version with FOX Performance ELITE and Shimano SLX and I'm riding a new bike.

The components on the non-S-Works builds are pretty disappointing and confusing. At the $6500 build, you get the base Fox Performance (not Elite) suspension, but carbon wheels?

Contract talk is interesting. I feel manufacturers don't want the public and other riders to know how much they are getting paid, as Troy says the top 5 are on some proper money, well into the 6 figures. A rider just outside the top 10 is on a lot less, but without...more
