I've got that model Mega, but the 27.5" one and it's been amazing. Curious if the playfulness comment is more to do with the bigger wheels than the bike itself?

I agree for the most part. Just think that we all benefit from the heavy duty tire if the terrain is both steep enough and relatively rocky/rough. If the trails are smooth then by all means run lighter tires. I went back and forth between WE and DH on ... more »

You pay dearly for aerospace level quality, and it looks like that's what these guys are delivering. Havn't seen any autoclave cure mtb frames before.

We utilize DMG-Mori NLX2000SY machines for the majority of our production....they are manufactured and assembled in Japan! Boosh!

You probably corner hard enough lol. I run like 25/27psi in the WE, they are rollier than maxxis tires I have run. I have run waaayy too much lsc in fork for long periods of time though, which contributes a lot to roll ime. But I went back and forth ... more »

I ride DH (Enduro?), I pedal up a pro GRT race course basically, not the gnarliest one but it should still be on the schedule if that gets going again. I run the WEs with Cushcore for the following reasons; because it gives me ample protection, because ... more »

Cane Creek used to have weird eyelet sizes, not sure anymore though.

I think they're cool anyways lol. I think it just caught a lot of people by surprise, maybe would have received a warmer welcome if the industry let the enduro craze cool down a touch more. Or if they came earlier. To me it felt like the industry was ... more »

I ride in Port Angeles almost exclusively, but have ridden Tiger and a few other trails around the I5 corridor. My 2019 NP has a leverage curve much like older santa cruz, it is soft in the midstroke. Idk if I just suck at setup but the bike has never
