Pissing here. The only thing that I really like here is the slim top tube to match the traditionally slim seat stays. For the most part the top tube acts in tension apart from flat landings, which is appropriate in this instance. I like that. I don't like plus. Sorry. The last industry...more

Cool review. A 850g 29+ tire however isn't going to be very durable... i see pinches and sidewall cuts.

More and more I find myself thinking about what's the one bike I'd like to own. Modern trail bikes in the 5-inch range cover a pretty wide gamut in ability, and it's the bike I find myself riding the most these days.

There will always be a need for niche bikes (dh, dj, and, yes, even...more

Interesting that they've kept the old impact, and not replaced fully by the Impact VXI. I noticed Mr Hill never swapped to the new ones and preferred the "old" classics.

I love the new lighter impact, but they are dreadful for longevity. I've never been one to...more

"their already low margins squeezed" = LOL. You mean keystone margins? Like the $10 part you are selling for $20? Most car dealers make lower margins off a $30k vehicle than a shop makes on a $6k bike, but they understand business and move inventory. It is pretty common knowledge in the car industry...more

It's Electric! The 27.5+ Specialized Turbo Levo

Moab recently banned ebikes from all non motorized trails: http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/news/Moab-Bans-Electric-Bikes-on-Mountain-Bike-Trails,834

Hopefully other areas follow Moab's example and ban ebikes so there's no ambiguity.

Normally I would read the comment section and be saddened to see how many people shun new technology but I have to agree that electric bikes must go asap! They're going to bring a new demographic into mountain biking that I don't think we want and just because there...more

I fall definitely into the "you've gotta earn it camp" and I'd rather eat my own hair than ride one of these mopeds. At best, I can see the point if you have an injury or disability that makes cycling difficult, at worst it'll put lazy c**ts out on the trails who...more

The beauty of not having electric assist- The higher you make your way into the trail system, the less gapers and people overall crowding the trails. Electric assist is a horrendous idea. If you're too lazy to pedal to the top, stick to the lifts. At least then we...more
