Blanket statement here, but you had a high growth area in cycling and racing that was unmonitored for YEARS. I personally do not believe for a second that the sport was clean in the early days up until the association with UCI started recently. There ... more »

Definitely a bucket list area. So much good stuff around there, but you can ride the standard race course descent for days and not get bored. The full XC course is a soul crusher if you decide to do the climb as well. If you haven't been, go!

I can relate, 48 with 5 kids and a very intense job. Still race as much as possible and even though I am not winning a lot still having fun hanging with everyone. Priorities change, but the drive doesn't.

When you see the best bike handlers in the world tripodding down the trails you know it is tough.

Also the difference watching Richey vs Hill is pretty dramatic. Hill is relaxed but attacking while Richey is in the backseat. You can just see the difference in them mentally for those conditions. Compare that to Richey in dry conditions and the guy is an animal.

Great review of new technology. I have been running CushCore on SC reserve wheels with very good results so far, but this looks to be a much lighter weight setup. Kudo's to Enve for the innovation.

You are comparing a feather weight XC wheel with a heavy weight Enduro race wheel, so not really the same. Personally I will say that you shouldn't buy carbon for the weight savings. It is the stiffer setup with inherent damping of carbon plus way more durability in my experience.

Having almost that exact setup on the ARC AS in the early 90's I can confidently say I will take the SB6c. I am curious on what the effective reach is on both bikes when taking stem length into account.

Best news so far this year. Great kid and seriously talented! Hopefully he gets over his dislike for international travel this year.

Our passion is motorcycles, here's our bike team....

Might want to rethink that tagline when promoting your brand in cycling. Maybe the passion is two wheels now?

Best award. Best recipient.

First off, great test. We need more of these types especially with full bikes!

I am a Saint fanboi 100%. Never thought of myself as mastering my brakes, but I know my friends are scared to touch my brake levers when they jump on my bike. Anytime I try a different brake setup I wonder what happened to the power. May have to try a set of Hope's though after this test.

And you will still have those places. The only thing this changes is that it allows local land managers to decide instead of having a blanket ban on cycling. What does not make sense is taking someplace that has historically allowed cycling and then ... more »

We need real back to back riding comparisons with the benefits of each bike, same trails, same days, same riders. Some will be stronger climbers and some will be better descenders, what we need is the nuanced differences between them. Don't get much out of the grouping exercises of separate tests.
