Moustaches. I don't understand the hate, isn't this the type of universal compatibility that everyone is asking for when they bitch about standards? Only problem is you can't fit that All In tool in there anymore. You don't need to buy this if you already have a bike with some cranks. If you are...more

Kona says the 66-degree head angle "strikes the best combo of all traits." This was actually a decision based on rider feedback. Those wanting to go slacker can use an Angleset if needed.

It's always worthwhile to remember that people on the internet (PB especially) are mainly there to bitch and if they had something like a product failure you're sure as shit gonna hear about it over and over and over again because they're upset. But someone who's happy with the bike will likely keep quiet because they don't feel the need to vent like an upset person would. I'm not saying there aren't issues, I'm just saying you're gonna hear about what went wrong a lot more than you'll hear about what went right. I've also noticed on PB the mentality is usually one bike failed so they must all suck!

what happens to the chain when the rear suspension compresses?... think about it

When a brand has so much OEM success, it can be very hard to sell parts on the aftermarket. In such cases there will always be a healthy supply of used brakes that people have taken off their bikes because they want to personalize their ride or whatever, which drives down the second hand price.

We opted out of any machine testing as we wanted to keep this about the real-world experience. Yes, this introduces some tester bias but we really wanted to evaluate the brakes on the trail more than anything else. On that topic, it's equally possible to have a brake set up wrong and turn in a less...more

OK, we need to get real here for a bit. First of all yes, as we pointed out in the article, SRAM has had quality issues with the Guide family of brakes. The most common problem is the master cylinder piston which has a tendency to get sticky over time, especially in hot weather. In our experience,...more

Not too interested in the tires, but the quality of Vital's reviews continue to impress. Great detail, relevant comparisons, reasonable suggestions for improvement, keep up the great work!

Also minnar is way too methodical to not have tested it. The dude is concerned about an extra ounce of Stans in his tires and wants half click on his suspension. I doubt he didn't do his homework.

As someone who is pretty much exactly Gregs's size and who had long struggled to find a bike that fits properly until the whole longer, lower, slacker thing came into play I really understand where he is coming from! It's wonderful thing to get on on a bike and just have it feel right, and when...more

He did from what I understand. Marshy was saying in one article that the 29ers were coming in 1-3second faster consistently for the whole team.
