Damn. This might have just jumped to the front of the line for my next bike. Still considering the Kona Hei Hei and Epic Evo.

I've never ridden a Bike Yoke (heard good things) but like Brandon mentioned in the review, the ability to "feather" the height of the seat while on rolling terrain is amazing. I would have never thought this until experiencing it myself. So to me, there is also a performance factor. And in almost 1 year of ownership I've only charged the battery twice, so it's not a bother at all.

Not very earth-shattering at $65 dollars. If they were $40-50 that would be more newsworthy. When you have a boutique carbon FS bike, top of the line suspension and carbon hoops you usually don't lose any sleep if you spend 10-15 dollars more per tire. Not diminishing the performance of the tire, but when I read the headline I thought the tire must be sub 50 bucks.

Looks like a solid contender in the downcounty/upduro category. I wish they would publish the frame only weight though...

I think Barel and Canyon were working on a remote activated device that would disengage the hub from the freehub body and giving the "chainless" performance. Guess it never materialized...

My buddy is 6' 5" and loves his XL Offering. He came from an XL SC Bronson and prefers the Evil.

The first mountain bike part I really lusted over was a Z1 Drop off, I think I was a freshman in high school. I bussed tables and spent every dollar I made on mountain bike parts. I used to flip to the back pages of MBA where Jenson and Supergo ... more »

I would find it more refreshing if a company released an E-bike without an accompanying video that talks about how "noble" their E-bike is. It seems like every company has to have this feel-good stance on them like they will be the savior of mountain biking. The videos and press releases all seem slightly apologetic and contrite.

Wow, I didn't know all that drama. I haven't been keeping up with the Team Rumors as I did in past years. Maybe Moir will end up being like Eddie Masters and become a top 10 threat in both disciplines.

What does Jack racing Enduro say about DH? At 25 could he already be disillusioned with the WC DH circuit?

Been riding these wheels for about 6 months on my Evil Offering. They are the Bees Knees, it'll be hard for me to ride any other kind of wheel on trail/enduro bikes from now on. The Enve wheels on my XC bike feel downright harsh after riding these.

I was watching it on the Olympic Channel which I think was the NBC broadcast. I tried to watch on Redbull.tv through a VPN (france and netherlands) and couldn't get it to play. It kept saying "broadcast error" or something.

That commentary was so cringeworthy I had to mute it at times.

Evil Offering

Thanks for the response. I have an older 140mm pike on my Offering that came off another bike. I want to get a new fork soon, can't decide if I'll stick with 140 or go to 150. And if I go to 150 I can't decide between the Pike Ultimate or Lyrik Ultimate. Any reason you went with a Pike over the Lyrik?
