That drivetrain was under $150... and the bike is 6 yrs old so why put expensive brand new parts on to send it... so cool story bro!

Yeah, like, how can you even ride a bike with 11 speed?

Great review. I can corroborate some of the experiences you had with Butcher 2.6 tyres, the same ones my Enduro Comp came with. Far too pressure sensitive and would lose air for no reason mid ride leading to rim damage and terrible handling. Far happier on...more

32x19T (or 34x21 or 30x17) gives proper tension and it's a pretty reasonable gear for me. A "Magic Gear" is the gear ratio that works on a regular bike without the ability to adjust tension.

Sometimes it's a little tight or a little loose, but this one worked out to be spot-on.

How did you sort out chain tension? I don't see a horizontal dropout, tensioner, or any sort of eccentric hub/bb.

I’ll take that Yeti cooler bag, the ENVE air station and might as well through in a Patagonia wetsuit. Ok Done Christmas shopping for the wife and kids, where did i park my zombie green lambo?

Fair play, I don't remember writing this and it hasn't aged well. Pretty damn obvious observation upon rereading. I guess my inner fanboy got caught up in the hype.

Yeah, confusing. Why would you want a dual-coil 160mm travel enduro bike with snakeskin XC tires on it? Seems like you could put real tires with real sidewalls on that bike and still have a light bike. Or if you don't need real tires where you ride, maybe you can also get away with a shorter travel bike?

I fully support the UCI striving to raise as much money as they possibly can. How else are they supposed to fund a world champs for agoraphobics racing each other on their turbo trainers?

First thing i saw was 'easy to maintain'. They better be with the IGUS bushings wearing out in two or three months and the pedals getting noisy due to increased clearance int he bushing (pedal clacking around when dropping your bike to the ground which then sounds like a loose...more
