Lol.

For the second time, did I say it sucked? I just said I'm *not sure it deserved the 5 star rating*. Simple.

I never said Shimano shouldn't make 12 speed. I never asked for 14 gears. I never suggested a pizza worthy 60 tooth was the answer to a problem I never...more

Fair point, a lot of my sentiment is based around the fact my Eagle stuff has been damn near invisible (I don't think about it - it just plain works) to me. That said, it does seem picky with respect to b-tension, and of course if something gets "beat up" all bets are off to...more

@Erotomania90 - Well, Rocky doesn't have it under their "Enduro" category- it's in big mountain and they explicitly refer to it as a freeride bike.

@Christopher - I think the weight is there to prioritize it's durability over uphill pedal-ability. If you look what they are putting the bike through in their image gallery, it's definitely intended to be in a burlier category than the Nomad or Ransom or Torque.

But it's a freeride bike, not an enduro bike. The enduro athletes all race on shorter travel options, like the Altitude.

Put a XX1 shifter on an XTR der and cassette...still works, all 1:1 ratio. Get a shifter you like with a der that doesn’t stick out as far and has a rebuildable clutch. Also the option of 10-45t

Edit: and b tension that doesn’t have to be measured to a thousandth of a mm to...more

You're assuming that SLX lines up to NX, when I don't think any brand is claiming that. These groupsets don't neatly line up to one another and simply ranking them in descending order and claiming they line up isn't accurate.

I know I'm going to get some flak for writing this, but I don't see how this can be a 5 star product.

Reviewing anything is obviously a relative thing. You have to compare the product to other products, either directly (compared to _____) or indirectly (by not mentioning a...more

Our WT tires are designed around 30-35mm rim widths. That means they’re ideally suited to those widths, not that they won’t work on narrower rims. We developed WT tires because of the trend toward wider rims in the market. As a world class athlete, Troy’s needs/demands on his...more

Highly unlikely. 26" sales of our current treads are nearly non-existent.

You're looking at it from a model vs. model perspective, while Scott is looking at it from a brand recognition perspective. They obviously want to have one consistent look across their full-suspension bike offer so when people see any bike from Scott they recognize it as a Scott. While it was a unique looking, stand-alone bike, the prior Gambler did not fit within the design strategy that Scott currently has.

I second the question Sir!? Seems like a slopestyle thing for catching tail whips. Subterfuge by shoe companies to generate sales through unneeded wear?
