My Man, we've got to get you on a DH bike at the world cups. Or hell, just on your trail bike. But you should take over on the Red Bull course previews. You've got the skills and composure. Nothing personal Gee.

For real... why is Nukeproof going even more anti squad? That is a bold move!

7.5B in sales of Red Bull cans last year and customers are left to log onto internet-cloaking servers, buried inside a rusting ocean vessel somewhere off another country's coastline.
What Bullshit.

whenever i see track walks i always wonder if any of these outdoors people who ride mtb down hill own any hiking or trail running shoes, you know, with treads, to walk on slick mouintainsides.

looks like an amazing bike. i have the wagon wheeler Slayer, bought in part due to the review here by Joel Harwood. looking at this new Instinct i'm glad i did. i prefer the look and geo of the Slayer. nevermind the bollocks or the labels, the Slayer is an incredible climber with a broad sweet spot for all kinds of trails. and it goes down just as you'd expect while remaining a playful beast.

not often you guys hand out the coveted 5 stars, always worth the read. and the freaky deaky Idahoan is a good edition to the Vital team.

For me coil shocks have better midstroke support, but he is the Pro, what do I know

yeah it's weird, it's not like there's no seal on the cover. no water should be getting in, no water, no dust. but it seems to be the case.

Had the same experience. 5 minute service. Use the correct clutch grease. Running smooth and fine. Curiously dry to start though. Makes me wonder if the correct or grease, enough grease or any grease was on the clutch to begin with.

yes. well known issue apparently. lubed it and set it a bit looser than it came stock and no problems since. otherwise i love the drivetrain.

i went all in on Sprindex and had it before my new Slayer 29 even arrived. best thing i could have put on the bike. it's the bomb. the ability to adjust spring rate on the fly depending on terrain, mood, climbing or descending is incredible. don't mess around with your compression settings, actually change the spring rate. coil had no appeal to me prior to this bike, now it's the ultimate set up. i have no interest in an air shock anymore.

Preload adjustment is very different from what the Sprindex does. Preload has always been adjustable on any coil shock via the spring nut. Sprindex is an adjustable coil spring spacer. By surrounding and cradling several coils,it allows you to effectively change the...more

The stack height on these bikes is crazy low. I have really long legs and, I guess, a shortish torso, so I think I would need a ton of spacers under the stem. Too bad, I've had Knolly bikes and loved them.

This is just my opinion, and I completely get it if I get a lot of heat for it, but it feels like the DHF is becoming what the Nevegal became - highly praised and widely loved, but too many other good options started popping up to just stick with it for traditions sake. It’s a...more
