I can speak first hand comparing that shock to much more expensive shocks: Its AWESOME. $/$ tough to beat that one. Especially if it was free! With the right tune (damping and air) you'll love it. Super underrated. Only downside is you'll notice some ... more »

Maybe I missed it, what is your body weight?

This is awesome. Especially now that the industry builds bikes that (almost) fit him. Hope he has a hell of a 2020.

Something that was never added (or I don't see). Nothing wrong with keeping speeds to a minimum. A number of skills do not require speed to work on. Keeping speed low while working on anything from cornering to weighting/unweighting the bike is a great ... more »

In all seriousness you are touching on a few different things. First, the internet is not a fair representation of the mountain biking community as a whole. While I can easily get into some silly debate online that is akin to religion, I rarely ... more »

Bike riding of all kinds has always blown my mind in how many people dedicate ions of time to getting good with no payoff besides simply being good. I'm one of those guys, though I wouldn't say I'm really good (I sure have put piles of time into it though). ... more »

Very cool. Thx for the reply. As Team Robot alluded to, there is a "golden window" to really get good at this sport. I picked it up when I was 12, and by today's standards, I'd say that is still too late to be *really* good. Case in point, with exception

I’ve been riding one of these for the latter part of this year. I was a massive fan of the OG Scout and been waiting to get on this iteration for a while. I pretty much agree with everything said here but I think 4/5 stars is generous. To be honest I think this thing is too...more

TeamRobot said everything I would say. That said, I wanted to ask, when did you start riding? Do you have any other experience in another sport that might translate? I ask because a "virgin" mountain biker at 40 who has 15 years of B level moto under ... more »

That would be a test I’d like to see too.

When the Pinkbike review complained that the Top Fuel didn’t have a enough anti squat I knew it would be a bike I’d love.

HAHAHA. Thanks for adding some "clarity" to all this. You are probably right. The question was wrong in the first place. Also, fun fact, though you should check before putting you own seatstay through your seat tube, I had no issues clearing a 60mm shock. ... more »

Thx on this. I thought they did! I thought Push did too, but I think that's only their coil conversion up front? Maybe a real suspension engineer can chime in here (paging DC to the thread...)
