First bike brand, who builds a horst link after the end of Specializeds patent in North America?

That's no single pivot bike. It's a Horst-Link one. The front triangle looks almost like Rocky Mountain's slopestyle bike though.

All that said, I like it. Transition has always been guided by the KISS...more

I'm with you on this one prestondh. I would definitely wait for a long term review of how this "new technology" holds up before I dropped 9k on one of these bikes. Maybe it's the shit.... but...more

im still under the impression that this is over complicated and partially a marketing gimmick. i mean do they really need fox kashima coated switch rails...

160 is the sweet, spot companies just do this to differentiate themselves and in the end limit consumer options imo, which ultimately means sales. SC do this well, SC also do Keep it Simple...more

Pefect: So if I were to pony up for one of these magical dream steeds, given my current riding habits, I would only need to service that little flux capacitor EVERY MONTH.

Graves strongly considered the SB5C for this weekend's race, and may still use it at select events.

These are heavier than the impact clipless? While these sound like fine shoes, I'm not sure why anyone would opt for them over the impacts. The reviewers request for lighter and stiffer exists in the new impact.

If I'm not mistaken, a V10 carbon frame weight is 7.2 lbs with a coil shock, so it's lighter. It also has rearward travel built into its rear suspension, so that's not a new idea, just borrowed from Santa Cruz. Finally,...more

Very cool bike, except for the rubber bumper to protect the rear end from contacting the seat tube. That contact should be impossible on a properly designed frame when using the correct size shock for the bike. Claiming...more

Thank you Orange for still offering 26. 27.5 should be another option, not the only one.

I personally feel 23mm is the sweet spot for 2.3 to 2.5 tires. I'm currently running 28.5mm internal and have noticed my cornering game has suffered. My tires are too square and I'm running big 2.5's. A 2.3 would be REALLY square. The square profile feels great on slow tech, straight line braking, straight line stability, and tech climbing, but when the speeds are fast with frequent corners, I'm slower and less agile than with 23mm. I'm noticing more rolling resistance too. I know wider is better marketing tells us wider can allow for faster rolling speeds. I won't argue the physics of low psi in rough terrain, all I can say is I'm experiencing more rolling resistance whether going up, down, through rough or buff. Now I know why Mavic refuses to capitulate to market trends. The last generation Enve DH rims were 21mm internal. That wasn't an oversight I'm sure, but they know wider is selling so it would be tough to convince anyone right now that 21mm is a good width.

Broke 2 Enve DH wheels this season in four rides...I race CAT 1 so not the fastest nor the slowest rider. Best wheels to ride on, YES! Confidence in Enve's quality control, ZERO! And they claim a two day turn around for warranties, NOT. I hope they get things back on track. I really...more

I think the better question is are the M90 rims capable of handling DT super comp spokes or do they fail like the M70's?
