Hmm... I'd say Remedy has better pedaling geometry- you are a little more stretched out and the seat is over the cranks a little more for better climbing position... I've ridden all 3- and if i could only have one it would be remedy. But- you've got the best idea- test them all.

That bike is super sexy... I can't help but laugh every time I watch the video though. Its the epitome of bike porn.

How old are the cranks you have mtbmtbmtb? E*13 updated the instal process and it will have alleviated a lot of the creaking me thinks—in addition to easier setup.

hey Vital/Nick Zuzelski, thanks for taking the time to ride the EC70 Trail wheels. Your readers undoubtedly appreciate that you pushed these wheels to their breaking point. We like that about Vital, that you're not just giving it a parking lot test.

We just want to...more

Foook Lopes is still rapid!!! The pedal uphill step up was pretty impressive.

The only two stops I did when they had the Oregon Super D were Hood River and Bend... you're going to have a blast there. It's really fast buffed single track with short/tech rock gardens, drops, some skinnies and jumps thrown in. Explore around after also, that's something I...more

Ya. Hood River is such a sick event! Personally, I may mix it up this year and hit the Bend one - apparently its pre sick as well.

Added a new video Vital Test Bike Preview: 2013 Santa Cruz Blur TRc 2/13/2013 5:22 PM

Every mountain biker knows the feeling you get when you receive a new frame or bike—less know the feeling of putting that new frame together. If you've built a new bike, you know that there is a soft, peaceful side. A side that cuts out the adrenaline, the excitement of that first corner you plan to annihilate, and that first trail you dream of ripping that leaves you grinning from ear to ear… A romance if you will. This feeling can often latch on while building a new frame into a bike. It can often be traced back to the sentimental thoughts that flood in while pulling the old trusty apart, setting the mood for the ritual about to take place as the freshy prepares to take the honors at the altar. It's a ritual that will always feel so good, regardless of how many times it has been performed. Never have I experienced these feelings with a carbon weapon, and so, this romantic ritual paves the way, upping the ante for all the rest—until the next. Despite the inevitability of some day being outdone, this ceremony of sorts is more than worth sharing. This is the early stage of a forming bond between tester (AJ Barlas) and the 2013 Santa Cruz Blur TRc… the build. Will it blossom into all that is dreamed of? Time can only tell and you will have to stick around to find out… soon enough.

I would absolutely love not buying a USAC license this year... As of now with the Enduro Schedule being non-sanctioned the only sanctioned race on my radar is Angel Fire National Champs... I'm assuming the Winter Park and other local Colorado DH races will be non-sanctioned. If nothing else gets...more
