First of all, this is fantastic news from Santa Cruz.

I'd also like to say I've never wanted a chainsaw as much as now after seeing the Santa Cruz colored one above.

Whoever wore this headline deserves a raise. But please, don’t quit your day job.

Thanks to Kirt, future Fest Series events will require all bikes to have water bottles and cages installed.

Is it me, or does it appear most of the Boxxers flex near the head tube? Don’t see that on the Fox forks in the pictures.

Super interesting! I've been debating whether or not to move to AXS.

Re: positioning, in the video where Curtis Keene is walking through the new Enduro, he talks about positioning and how was advised by someone at SRAM to skip the matchmaker and mount the controller on the left side of the brake. But of course, his hands are likely a different size than yours.

I bet the big guys are, but what about the smaller ones (e.g. Evil, Transition, Revel, etc...)?

Absolutely. It was long overdue for an overhaul.

I'm curious to see where the bike companies go in the next few years when it comes to bikes between the enduro and downhill categories. There are definitely a lot of blurring of the lines that I'm wondering if it will backfire in any way. With the Enduro and Demo from Specialized, Nomad and V10 from Santa Cruz. and while they don't have a DH bike, Yeti's 12345 approach with the SB series almost seems like the companies are investing too much in too many options. I know it sounds like "get off my lawn" but that is a lot of money in a market that seems low on margins. Just a thought.

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?

Thanks for the history refresher.

Last question - Does Vital have a long-term review of SRAM AXS around the corner anytime soon? Haven't seen any site post one yet.

Touche, but I'd argue that was - as you said - ushering in a new era, not improving an already established one.

This is a serious question because I can't remember - did hub manufacturers publicly comment about the XD driver access? At least one, if not a few, have done so about MicroSpline.

*heavy breathing* That line on the side of the jump around the 1:30 mark was really interesting. *heavy breathing*
