Good for x-ups, or good in general? The handlebar width has a huge impact on if you can do x-ups or not. Too wide and you end up hitting you knee or front of the saddle. A longer bike can have a wider bar while still doing x-ups. And a longer bike might ... more »

It might be okay, but the closest Bos service center to the US is in Mexico, so you will have to do pretty much all service and repair work on those yourself. If you really want to do X-ups, then get a single crown, but don't rule out forks like a 180mm ... more »

I just looked up the Axle to Crown lengths for the Boxxer and Totem, I didn't find numbers for 2007, but found them for 2008 and I don't think either fork changed between those years. The Totem is 3mm shorter than the boxxer, so there won't be much of ... more »

What geometry adjustments do you want to make?

They have one, her name is Kathy Sessler. To the best of my knowledge, she is the only woman who manages a WC DH team, meaning the Syndicate is way ahead of the curve.

If you want to become a champion, you must think like a champion thinks. And what better way make your thoughts a champion's thoughts than to make your face a champion's face! Who knew plastic surgery had become so dialed!? However, this may cause problems ... more »

I'm going to be that guy. Who are the Afton Shoe athletes who got World Cup Podiums? I can't find any mention on Afton's website of who they sponsor to verify that claim.

The EWS did not say they are "washing their hands of this matter." They said they are not part of the investigation. In any case of cheating, the EWS is as much a victim as the cheated athletes, therefore, it would be wrong for a victim to be an active ... more »

Way to go Enve. Now just lower it by another $1,000 and you'll offer competitive pricing.

When I last talked to Evil in 2014, they told me they have no plans to make another DH bike. That said, if they changed their mind a couple of years later, then 2019 would be a likely year to go into production. However, most of their new bikes have ... more »

Isn't that what most rumors are, mostly made up and therfore doubtful and unverified?

Added a comment about feature Vital MTB Test Sessions: Five of the Best 27.5 Downhill Bikes Raced and Reviewed 1/8/2019 9:35 AM

This is the best bike test I've read in over a year, mostly because it is for DH bikes.

More DH Bikes please. Also, a third testbrider would be good, especially when combining the segment times to get a clearer picture. Two people is just not quite enough to really solidify a trend in how a bike handles. I also offer myself as the third test rider.

You say you bought the bike one year ago. but didn't try to get a refund from Ellsworth until Sea Otter. That is way outside the 30 day refund window you mentioned, so they are under no obligation to refund you the money. And if they say there is no ... more »

Did the bike come with a warranty? Why did you let them take your bike? Why did they want to take it? Did you buy direct from them, or from a dealer? Why is the word "New" in quotation marks in the ad, was it one of their Demo bikes for sale? I need ... more »

If the mountain bike industry can produce travel adjustable forks and cuttable handlebars, it can figure out cuttable seat tubes. Or just start running shorter seat tubes, like 450mm seat tubes on size large frames instead of 490mm.

Added reply in a thread 2020 Bike Wants 12/24/2018 10:37 PM

I want to see downhill bikes return from Yeti and Evil. And more up and down bikes get short seat tubes to run long travel dropper posts. Or make markings to allow the customer to cut the seat tube shorter if they wish.
