Because composite pedals are consumable. The one up broke in half after like 2 weeks. It’s a shame, the grip was fantastic (as was the replacement policy).

Buy nice or buy twice.

Lots of fantastic cyclists in there, but Rachel Atherton in particular is so dialed on the bike. Visibly more composed and on-point, and you can see why she's won 37 some-odd World Cups and 5 rainbow jerseys. Bummer she exploded her Achilles mid-season. Thanks for putting this compilation together, Vital.

Are they gonna make a longer travel bike for him to race on? 130 seems... aggressive.

Also, if we can get 250 people to pre-order and pay in full. I'm sure we could build a Phantom V3 frame that weighs in at only 2.5lbs including shock and axle. Same geo and everything. Only caveat is this frame will only come with a 7 day warranty, and High...more

Very well said Noah, and fully agree. I believe it was Graves who was once quoted at an enduro race saying something along the lines of. You get to choose the parts you put on your bike, parts you trust, you don't get to choose the wight of the bike using those...more

Guessing you don't like admitting "I'm wrong". Fun fact, I do it all the time. Liberating. I also learn that way.

Yes, more aggressive riders would prefer a more progressive design. I've ridden the bike. It isn't God Awful, but I did find it to use more of the...more

Jeff, slow people don't need heavy tires, strong wheels, or real brakes. This, in turn, makes their bikes much lighter.

My advice to people: do not weigh your bikes - unless you're trying to build up a hill-climb specific bike. There have been a lot of tests and studies about bike weight, and the consensus is, it doesn't matter nearly as much as people think it does. For some...more

Sorry, but no.

This is the same old adage of people going "VPP has this type of leverage ratio curve (the upside down U)". As we've seen in the current crop of VPP bikes, this is not true. There is a reason the engineers at SC designed the old VPP stuff this...more

This same argument is happening in reverse right now in the comments for the "Test Sessions: Five Slack, Short-Travel 29ers" review. Over there someone is complaining that the test bikes are so heavy, so why even bother buying a short travel bike? "If ... more »

amazing work everyone! keep it up! I liked how BT gave his 'add to quiver' bike and his 'one bike quiver' bike. and a massive shout out to Banshee for performing against the plastic, pretty, and pricey bikes.

awesome format and the geo nerdage is sweet too.

Here’s a thought: no one gets their first win this season. Tahnee, Tracey, and Myriam will be healthy and Rachel will be back on the bike. On the senior men’s side, it’s tough to bet against a stacked winners circle that already includes Loic, Gwin, ... more »
