I find that hard to believe. I regularly ride in PNW winters (very mild for all intents and puposes) and even then the reverbs i've had perform noticeably worse, specially when you get close to freezing. I've never had that happen with cable remotes or shifters....more

When I had it hydraulic, it would freeze up when it's under 32 (yes, it gets that cold here in Nor-Cal) and I've heard from countless others having the same issue. I switched to cable and that solved it. ....as for "sub-zero" I'm not sure who/why anyone would ride...more

I ride weekly through South Dakota winters, as long as it’s above 0 degrees F. In my experience suspension components, hydraulic brakes, and especially reverbs perform at less than 100% of warm weather operating performance when the temps are below freezing. I’ve...more

Huh? I ride a cable actuated dropped all winter here in Vermont. Winters are very cold and I've never had a cable freeze. If anything gets wonky in cold temps, its hydraulics.

I guess it's just because I'm a cheap bastard, but it's pretty remarkable to me people are still spending $400 on droppers when PNW and One-up posts work so well

Evil videos just aren't the same without Strobel ripping a new one in some dark and loamy PNW trail.

I believe it’s mostly to help you get a spring rate between offered rates; I.e. if fox offers a 400# and 450#, then this would give you a 425#. This also allows for tuning on days where you want more sag (loose over hardpack) or less sag (bomb...more

It seems like they want this vehicle to be a moto by selling it in a powersport market. It gives a real mixed signal to both industries where the vehicle belongs and what rules/laws to abide by

It may be clever but I personally think it's awful looking... it really ruins all the clean lines of the design

My point isn't that these bikes shouldn't exist, its that why are they so portly? The suspension is lighter. The frames should be lighter, since the fork axle to crown is less. You don't need Codes or Saints. You want good EXO tires, but I'd argue you don't need...more

I fail to see the point of a short travel aggro XC bike when they average over 31 pounds. My 6" enduro bike (that can pedal extremely well with light tires) weighs just at 30 pounds.

Most of us would. Schladming just needs to put in a bid and pay the UCI hostage fees.

Thanks for all the great content and solid reviews Vital! Looking forward to some fresh 27.5 bikes. Big wheels work well for lots of people but not for me. My Big wheeled bike is up for sale.
