You guys killed it with this test! I also really enjoyed the Inside Line leading up to this - thought it was one of the best Inside lines yet. A lot of riders these days (me included) have one bike as their do-it-all bike, do you guys think that an e-bike (particularly the Levo SL) could replace that one bike as their do it all trail bike? Or would having an e-bike always be a secondary bike to your analog bike? For riders who spends most their time earning their turns, having a 'one bike fits all' bike like the SL (maybe with some modifications) seems like it would make a lot sense...

Are we going to see your progressive springs in heavier weights?

ah the good ol' days.

Brendog and blenki were some of the loosest riders on the circuit. Ben Reid would win practice. Blackbox program in full force. Rider's kits looked more like pajamas than race kits. Those mudguards haha (how didn't with think of fenders before) Carbon frames were just starting to be introduced into WC racing (I was a skeptic). Peaty was on the hunt. Freecaster. Everyone as a whole was looser on a bike and made those tracks seem extra gnarly. Crazy how far we've come in a decade....

Can we get another one of these but even earlier on? When did Vital RAW become a thing? Also Spomer, can we get a compilation of all the super slow-mo vids? Loved those!

They should have an "unlimited" (skunkworks/black box) class from manufactures. You know to show people the potential of these machines, good or bad. This may sway the view of how people see them in the present or future and what direction the industry goes....more

Really well done Transition! Think this is a huge step forward for the brand and I'm excited to see other bikes in their line up get a similar treatment. Also love the versatility they're giving the bike with the ability to long stroke the rear shock, for heavier riders, that means a lower leverage ratio and less PSI/damping in your shock, that's rad shit. I'm with vital on this one though, seeing size dependent chainstay length would be the icing on the cake for this bike. Regardless, can't wait to try one of these out on my home trails.

Think that's a typo Spomer. The Atlas bar they tested is a 35mm bar if I'm not mistaken. Either way, love this show, keep it coming guys!

Anyway you could test a 31.8 Aluminium bar just to put some numbers and compare?

I'm 95% sure it's in Arizona, probably Phoenix.

Not to distract from the core of the conversation here, but this is something I wanted to bring up. One thing that really surprised me while recently working in a bike shop for a brief bit, is how much waste comes with packaging. It's interesting/shocking ... more »

The components on the non-S-Works builds are pretty disappointing and confusing. At the $6500 build, you get the base Fox Performance (not Elite) suspension, but carbon wheels?

well specialized should pay that guy more money then, he's done a hell of a job with a number of bikes in their lineup.

Was watching Amaury Pierron's race run from Andorra, which is absolutely insane to watch... like wtf. But I actually noticed that he was running the old Code levers on his bike, kinda curious as to why he'd run these instead of the new Code's. Any ideas?
