Yep, I picked all the parts for this one based on my own preferences. As stated in the article, a lot of the parts have already been tested and reviewed here on the site, so it was really a case of what I wanted to ride for this one (lucky me!). The one exception is the fork, as it is brand new...more

The marketing here seems quite familiar to a disaster from recent memory. Company starts, makes a hardtail frame to prove that they have the best ideas about geometry. Company takes a fuck you attitude towards skeptics and the bike industry. Company...more

I think people are tripping because they're looking at the frame-only price with a Push or EXT shock, but that's not really an apples-to-apples comparison. Frame-only for a Megatower is $3400 with a Fox X2, which is basically the same thing as $3500 for the Dreadnought with...more

For pricing - it's not that bad if you've looked at pricing lately - it's creeping up with Covid and the shipping quagmires. A Rocky Altitude is $3860, and a Yeti SB150 is $3900. This bike ain't cheap, but for a small brand, and given the complexity and presumed small...more

I hope many see this. I see SO many people running bars too wide on their bikes. Probably the most common bike fitment mistake I see, maybe second only to brake levers to close to grips by beginners.

well written article. sounds like a great hardtail, meets all the criteria and geo on my list. decent stack too for a change. this might be nice with the fork set to 140.

why is that your only takeaway? do DH racers only use a DH bike for all of their DH training workouts? no. does any serious athlete only use a single tool for training? no.

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.

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.
