Added a comment about product review Purpose Built Top Level Enduro Bike, But Beware of New Shock Technology 9/14/2017 9:06 PM

I think you do an excellent job across the board with your reviews, Jeff. I keep wanting to want one of the new Remedy's or Slash's but Trek keeps doing these hokey or proprietary "innovations" that, as you've expressed, don't do much. Add in the low end damper on the fork and at best I might consider a frame only. Which is what end up doing anyway. Keep up the great work!

If that is really what you take away from these features, we might as well not bother doing them anymore. Why That Bike is all about our members, we cruise the bike check section looking for sweet rides that people have put some effort into customizing, and then we showcase those bikes in the feature to share...more

Any pictures of the damage?

I also appreciate seeing the same bike being used throughout so many tests! I take it as an effort to reduce another variable. Either that or lots of love for the Capra!

Way to tell it like it is vital. Your honesty makes the 5-star reviews that much more meaningful.

I love the snappiness of carbon rims but until i am making 150k a year, I cannot possibly justify it.

They look about 0.005" thicker than what's currently available...

I assure you that the gents testing this concept (Transition, FOX, RockShox, Chris Porter, etc) know exactly what's up. I'd like to think I do as well, having been at this testing game for several years. The back-to-back process typically reveals all.

Totally agree about the tire choice. But the new nomad has to be ridden to be appreciated for what it is. Definitely function over fashion for the new one.

The only part in question is the Ardent as a front tire. After seeing this though absolutely no desire for the new Nomad. Rad work!

Is it just me or did they just throw on a 29er 40 and put his rear wheel in the longer chainstay setting and call it a 29er DH bike? Also, remote lock out X2? Take my money now.
