36lbs is VERY normal for a properly equipped enduro bike. The lighter ones have parts that wont hold up (especially tires) and are expensive builds (most riders can't all afford high end cassettes and wheels that save weight). For most people, this is the actual weight of an...more

All carbon (wheels, handlebar, crank and frame), tire are not so heavy, the big betty is 1150 g and the magic marry is 1250g. The coil is not so heavy too, it's like 800 g, with the RS superdeluxe (450g) the bike is approx 14,5 kg.
The frame was totally sand so, there isn't old paint on it yet, I saved couple...more

Have you tried running more pressure/less sag in the fork? Similarly, I’d mess with tokens, too. Spring rate is much more important for suspension feel than damping, especially for tuning bottom out, so I wouldn’t assume it’s the damper’s fault until you’ve tried a...more

I found this strangely relatable for mountain bike content. More than anything it comes across like a genuine attempt to help less experienced riders make a few simple decisions and arrive at a better outcome for themselves. So it came across to me...more

36 w/ cushcore pro and downhill casing tires. The 30 lb Slash isn't going to be built for the same abuse.

The Saint brakes are a nice touch. As a huge guy, with dh intentions, I think the alu frame with perfectly coincidental Saint color touches is really classy.

Well I alluded to it in the review, but to clarify: I feel I'm getting at least the same amount of grip and confidence from this new generation Butcher as the I do with the DHF, certainly on dry, loose, and rocky trails. They also wear a lot better than any of the...more

Added reply in a thread Go with SRAM or stay with Shimano? 9/17/2021 10:20 AM

Gotta plug the mixed setup I've been running: GX AXS with Shimano cassette, cranks, and chain. The GX AXS derailleur is an absolute tank that's survived some serious hits (judging by some of the scratches it's showing) and it's played surprisingly well ... more »
