Kiran MacKinnon (works for SC) using the same idea: shorter reach, backwards buzzworks and longer stays. He and I talked about it at Tamarack and he thinks it's all relation of body weight/position to BB. he also thinks longer reach is yanking riders too far forward these...more

477mm rear end, and interestingly they got rid of the Buzzworks headset to make the front end 8mm shorter. All my life I've heard how short chainstays corner better, but Greg seems to be doing fine on the limousine. I hope all the engineers at SC talk to each other, because...more

you obviously don't ride east coast very much. in the wet, there is a PROFOUND difference in maxxx grip vs maxxx terra. maxxx terra is like ice. when it's dry i think the differences are negligible. i actually just went to a continental der baron to finally get more front end traction...more

I’m more curious about the new stem that XC Gear is developing. It allows flex in all directions, not just vertically.

A little context to this may help. The GNCC series a couple years ago began allowing ebikes to be ridden to pre-ride the race course to scope lines etc. Before that, riders were allowed to ride the course on bicycles, but being a GNCC moto/atv course, ... more »

Added a comment about product review How Much Fun Can the New Santa Cruz Blur XC Bike Be? Vital's First Ride 3/21/2018 8:53 AM

Shoot there is so much to say about this that Vital could probably do a whole article about it. In short, I like to control the bike, not be a passenger, and the Patrol was awesome but on our densely forested trails in North Carolina, it was such a rare occasion that it would get up to enough speed that you get to that point of being at the limit of what the bike wanted to do (AKA where it gets really exciting). I wanted quicker handling and more feedback from the trail to my body, and the Scout did just that without (IMO) giving up anything else. It's a very personal decision and I'm sure there are many people who would want the exact opposite from a bike- one that feels planted, smooth, and always in control. That's why options are good!

Could not agree more about finding the limits of a bike and how much fun that is, that’s why I recently swapped from a Patrol to a Scout and am very happy I did. Great review BT

Most definitely, the entire cleat box is reinforced and not 90 degree transitions from the sole if that makes sense. Huge improvement and night/day difference. Best part is they have the new cleat box in all their clipless shoes.

Added a comment about product review Tested: Five Ten Hellcat Pro Clipless Shoes 11/17/2017 4:18 AM

I may have missed it, but have they addressed the issue from previous models where the shoe cracks around the cleats? I have seen numerous pairs of them broken. We have a lot of steep hike-a-bike sections and thought maybe that had something to do with them breaking so often.
