There's already a sport for that: Real enduro. Dirt bikes. Of course the above would be fun, but MTB's are gonna be kicked of many trails in a heartbeat if that becomes the new norm. Think about it.

No, access to non-motorized trails in the US has been a nonstop struggle for 40yrs, and it is *not* on a singular trajectory towards getting better. There is a very militant anti-MTB lobby (spearheaded by no less than the Sierra Club, our most influential nature-advocacy group) and adding...more

Except for the part where MTB's aren't allowed on many trails in the future because of way way more bike traffic. Also, the barrier for entry will be virtually gone. Real MTB is hard...that's why a lot of people don't do it. But now a lot of people will be out there that don't care and/or are...more

Make believe racing for pseudo-athletes too lazy to pedal an actual bicycle? Stop kidding yourselves and just buy motorcycles already.

Makes perfect sense to classify a bike with a motor as "non motorized."

I've had this groupo for about 8 months (you could get it from Europe before the delayed USA release). While I agree with everything in this review, I feel like there's a piece of info left out. The bite point on my enduro 4 piston XTR brakes changes on long descents (or when...more

Funny how 3 years ago, this bike would have been seen as ultra long, ultra stable, but not playful at all.

I"m no math wiz.. but the overall rating should be 4.0625 based on the numbers provided..

ps.. why not test the Mullet configuration if the WC boys are running Mullet?

it's more a matter of the difference in failure modes. yes they're intended to accomplish the same things and provide the same benefits, but do so with a different design. the foam inserts evaluated here rely on elastic deformation of the material. procore utilizes an air bladder.

it's possible they didn't include it as procore is a fundamentally different system (dual air chambers vs foam insert) so it would have been difficult to make the kind of head to head comparison based on the test methodologies used here

Great. I get it. I'd love to ride with loved one's, too. But, instead, we do things that ALL of us can do--things that are important to them. Like just hanging out, hiking, taking a walk, going to breakfast. Not everybody needs to ride mountain bikes.........This video...more
