I seriously can’t handle how fast he rides. Just watching I blew at least 10 corners. #darkmagic

Looks like such a fun bike! I ride a 180 / 160 as my all mountain rig and really enjoy it. With a 180 up front on this rig I wonder if 26 would be a good choice since the longer fork raises the bottom bracket. Sounds like he enjoys the 27.5 though

Okay, I get people switch teams and sponsors but this is a little over the top. Getting rid of Gwin and then claiming “The past 3 years have been filled with historic firsts, epic victories and a lot of lessons learned”. Yup except perhaps the lessons part, Gwin was responsible for the successes. Maybe I’m mistaken but has angel ever podiumed?

Commencal CLASH Signature w/ Deity & Hope Brakes

Anyone have much saddle time on one of these? I’m very curious how the rear suspension design performs. One of my rides is the meta sx and this looks the part of a worthy upgrade

The narrow rear end possibly contributing comment is in reference to this feeling:

"While really pushing the bike hard through berms at race pace, it presented a wallowing rear end feeling right at the corner's apex when the most force was applied. 'Did we burp the tire? Did...more

Really not a matter of "better fitting" but strictly a matter of preference (driven mainly by riding style and terrain). For fast, open and rough trails I would personally go with the XL, if my trails were more twisty and tight, the L.

Flashback - Superco Silencer Prototype DH Bike

I actually rode up a lift with doc just 2 seasons ago at a bike park and he was riding this amazing creation. Still one of the sickest bikes out there. Unfortunately, I don’t think he’s ever coming back to the messed up world of the bike industry

76 degree effective seat tube angle as it sits.

Instead of bending the seat tube to look steeper, we use an offset straight seat-tube so people could use the length rather than face interference issues. When combined with shorter seat tube lengths, it allows for 170mm droppers to fit on all sizes of our bikes (and...more

FFS, Instagram is out. It's just a stupid Facebook suburb, filled to the brim with showoffs and pseudo motivational phrases. Plus who the heck wants to watch videos in that crappy resolution anymore?

boaz I’m also 6’1” and did a bunch of XL demos this year, each around 500mm reach like the Sentinel, sb130, Process 153 29 and some others. They were the longest bikes I’ve ever ridden but with modern climbing positions and short stems they felt pretty damn good. Still long bikes...more

I’m 6’1” should I really be riding a bike with a reach over 500mm?

Yeah, I blew up the stock shock multiple times. Not a good product. Shock pictured was a RS test shock, and I honestly really liked it. It may not have a piggyback, but it still performed great, and this shock had a much more progressive tune which really helped the bike come...more

To be really honest, it did feel like the "test pool" was very limited with this fork. Most of this fork was clearly well engineered, with a lot of time put into it and obvious strong attention to detail. However, I think to bring any product to market these days, you really need...more
