Very cool! But I remember the rear end being a bit if a wet noodle. I'm sure modern wheels helps a lot.. ?

looks like a trials bike with a DH fork...

I had no idea a patent prevented you from making something for personal use. Interesting...

Agreed. Pretty talented cyclist. What I heard was "Do this impossible line, then set up wide for that impossible line, then square off this turn so you can get into this other unrideable off-camber root section..."

Not a fan of his chest mount view.

Awesome bikes, love the review format! The radar charts and suspension analysis of the group are fantastic

amazing work everyone! keep it up! I liked how BT gave his 'add to quiver' bike and his 'one bike quiver' bike. and a massive shout out to Banshee for performing against the plastic, pretty, and pricey bikes.

awesome format and the geo nerdage is sweet too.

I ride these same trails 1-2 times a week. These tires are the minimum tires for out here. Exos get shredded out here, constantly. Exo+ is the bare minimum. Exo+ cushcore is actually the best option

Another really great review. The octal rating and graph is really cool and a nice graphical and overall measure. This has me really looking forward to my new Banshee Titan build.

Was thinking of paring the Titan with a tallboy 4 and still think that might go...more

Great comparison. These bikes all look like a bundle of fun. One suggestion would be to show the antisquat curve through the gear range rather than through the travel range. We all pedal in the 15% to 45% sag range 99.9% of the time, which gives us a pretty...more

We thought about this, and it is a good concern to bring up. In a perfect world, VitalMTB would test different suspension systems on the exact same reach measurements. Or different reach measurements on the same suspension platform. Since that perfect test will...more

I think there is a big difference between a classic 120F-120R Trailbike and a modern one with 140F-120R. It's not just the fork, when you have All-Mountain geometry, All-mountain tires, and All-Mountain weight you have an All-Mountain Bike with a bit less travel...more

Also, if we can get 250 people to pre-order and pay in full. I'm sure we could build a Phantom V3 frame that weighs in at only 2.5lbs including shock and axle. Same geo and everything. Only caveat is this frame will only come with a 7 day warranty, and High...more

My advice to people: do not weigh your bikes - unless you're trying to build up a hill-climb specific bike. There have been a lot of tests and studies about bike weight, and the consensus is, it doesn't matter nearly as much as people think it does. For some...more
