"Finally, we will compare athletes improvements with Halo Sport to their historical data to see if any significant differences exist". The control data that we'll be comparing to is testing results from the past few seasons, on a similar training plan, using identical testing protocols.

Certainly! It will be interesting to see how it plays out, both with the review and potential future uses. I think I'm just a little cynical, especially when there are pro athletes putting stickers on their frames to dampen vibrations and wearing magnetic bracelets that are...more

I agree with what you're saying - a scientific conclusion can't be made. You're bang on that there are too many uncontrolled variables. That said, we've got a few years worth of data to compare to for either rider, their training programs won't differ much from previous seasons. If their long-term improvements are more significant we can infer or suggest that it had something to do with HaloSport, but we can't prove it.

Either way, there is evidence from a number of studies to suggest this is worth checking out. Worst case scenario, it won't make a difference. Best case scenario, it works.

So far so good, even after a few days of rock flinging in the bike park and a few shuttles. Peeling will take time, but I'll update if anything appears.

Had the slash a month everything I thought about it has been said in this review, I even converted the forks to float as didn't think there was need to use talas. The bike is just fast!!

Cool. I'd start with a 150mm Pike. The 160mm airshaft is not a big change if needed. I don't ride Prevost, but Forbidden is one of my favourite places to ride. I'm currently on a 160/155mm Pivot Mach 6 and I'll keep that bike as my winter ride.

I'd say you're on the right track if you're after a super capable daily driver. It would excel in places like Prevost and Forbidden, but will still be fun on easier trails. If you're familiar with Squamish: I pedal up to Cakewalk, Angry Midget, etc. comfortably. 160mm didn't feel like 'too much' to me - you might prefer it if you end up at Mt. Washington. If I lived on the Island I'd still run 160mm/150mm without travel adjust.

The 150mm Drop Line is 50mm longer overall than the 125mm version on this particular test bike. I was able to drop the post 50mm and then some as I had that question myself.

That's pretty much it - I find that most frame designs are pretty solid these days, but each one has a unique feel, area where it shines, riding style that it favors, etc. The Slash allowed me to drop my heels and go fast, the Yeti offered a little more rider feedback. Both great, just different.

I have ridden the SB5.5 only once, so can't say definitively. My initial sense is that the Trek mutes the trail a little bit more than the Yeti - not a better or worse feeling ride, just different. Both are extremely capable and I would have a tough time deciding between the two.

I didn't get out a tape measure to get exact numbers, but I had more than enough room to drop the post an additional 2" and then some for bike park duties.
