Welcome to the world of stitched parts. There's a balance between aesthetics and machine time that has to be struck so that you all don't have to pay more than you already do for the link. You tighten up those step overs and run time goes through the roof pretty quick. 0.005" step overs aren't free....more

Am I the only one here that thinks this ebike emergence is incredibly sad? Poor bullit.

A cycle with a motor is a “motor-cycle”. Seems more honest to just spend the same money on a dirtbike and have way more power.

Can't speak for other countries, but if you're a US rider you pretty much need to be rich to get into World Cups. DH isn't a cheap sport, but traveling the country for 5 races that get you UCI points (and not even that many) is crazy. Expecting people to max out credit cards and...more

Awesome review! One of the main points of feedback we have received is in regards to the need for a 12mm wrench for adjustments which as you have mentioned can be not very convenient for trail side tuning. To address this we have made a small 3D printed tool that has both a 12mm...more

I bought one of these last year and have been amazed by the performance on trail. Somehow it has really good support without being harsh and the hydraulic bottom out is brilliant, It works incredibly well on the trail and helps keep you in control during big compressions. It also has been very reliable for me, no performance degradation since I’ve owned it (about 10 months). Given my experience with the shock I’m now looking at the fork.

I’ve had similar experiences seeing them where they specifically shouldn’t be on multi use trails that include lots of hikers. And this is a bad thing for the Mtb community. 95% of people probably wouldn’t even notice the motor on this bike. Beautiful design, yes. Good for the sport? I’d argue that no, it’s actually bad for the sport because other trail users will group them with mountain bikes instead of a motorized vehicle.

As far as helping people with physical disabilities, I’m all for them using this as a tool to enable them to also enjoy the trails

Totally different topic I do find the price on ebikes in general to be pretty ridiculous. I own a current year MX bike (bought new) that cost less than a couple of these builds and I’d argue it has a lot more technology in it

To everyone downvoting, this is an issue that should be thought about. It has a motor, which makes it fundamentally different from a mountain bike. Some of the best trails out there specifically ban ebikes. See new single track trails in Moab or toads in Tahoe. The problem with e bikes like this is the line gets too blurry based on appearance. No question it’s fun, but that’s not the point

Yet another overpriced weak motorbike. E bikes are the bane of actual mountain biking, especially now that they are looking and weighing near the same.

Gwin is awesome, definitely my favorite WC racer. So much strength and aggression in his riding. Unrelated but his house is pretty fat, has crushed it racing. Well done AG

I’ve been led to understand in general that dual crown forks put more force on the frame junction from head tube to top tube and down tube than a single crown fork of similar travel. do you know (or care) if the Capra is dc rated?

Great test. Thanks vital. I’ve been curious about mullet for a while and it sounds like the difference come down mostly to preference rather than outright performance
