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?

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.

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.

Lol, yeah I guess I am. Well set suspension really unlocks what a bike can do. Plus I've had long night shifts working with nobody but my thoughts...

I remember watching one of Vorsprung Suspension's videos where Steve, the owner, said that he highly encourages a rider to play around with the suspension tuning option they have before they consider getting a custom tune from Vorsprung. His reasoning ... more »

Correct, the trials don't even have a date set yet.

You may also be able to increase the travel of the fork you have, and then add the MRP Ramp Control Cartridge for the Fox 34 to get more end stroke support, you just need to make sure that the space taken up by the Ramp Control Cartridge is less than ... more »

I vote new fork and shock. You can get both new for about as much money as a carbon wheelset, and I feel that there is more of a performance gain for spending your money on more agressive suspension. Yes, there are lighter allow and carbon wheelsets ... more »

What is it about the Fox 34 that you feel could be better? And what wheels do you have right now?

Minnaar doesn't go to bike brands, bike brands go to Minnaar... Bad pun aside, is Minnaar's contract with SC up this year?

Kevin Menard at Transition stated in the Inside Line Podcast from five weeks ago that FMD racing (Seagrave and Co.) will still be on Transition frames for 2019.

The problem with the way Rampage is judged isn't that the scores are known too soon, it is that the standard that the rider's are judged against is known too late. The standards that the riders are compared to need to be know before the event starts ... more »

In today's Inside Line Podcast, the co-owner of Transition, Kyle, stated that FMD is staying with them for 2019. As for the Rat, if he is mentoring, does that mean a return to the WC for him? If so we can likely rule out Evil, since they haven't made ... more »
