Curious why you didn't use a Nomad for a build like this?

5'10 3/4 and 31in endseam. I ride a large with the saddle slammed forward and a 40mm stem. I prefer the longer bike for Enduro things.

Can vouch for the Tilt. My buddy has one... and its a total ripper for a good value. I opted for the Lithium, and we ride the same steep rocky terrain, and that Tilt is married to my back tire...

This is and has been the format and wording of every Vital review for quite a long time. WE are Vital.

Good review, apart from the "We" pronouns through out the review... were there two reviewers?

I have a 2019 Fugitive LT. Maybe the shorter reach and slightly steeper HT aids... but I find the bike pretty playful and super fun on flow trails. With a shorter stroke shock (50mm vs 55mm), It feels even snappier. Have you guys ridden the previous iteration to compare the playfulness/snappiness? Thanks!

"Integrated Storage" aside, it looks like a phenomenal bike at great price points. Kudos to GT for having their highest-end model top out at 6k.

The big let down on the Pro LE is the aweful wheelset they chose. Ditch the X01 derailleur, and at least equip a DT350 hub over that woeful SRAM MTH.

The rear triangle is another thing I’d be surprised to see complaints about, I bet the majority would prefer aluminum with 148 over carbon 157.

It's almost like they're completely different companies with marketing tailored to different audiences and price brackets. Weird.

Pivot is pricing out a large portion of the market by not being able to provide a sub $6k complete option. The “Race” kit from pivot at $6k comes with a mostly SLX drivetrain, SLX brakes and Performance level suspension. other complete bikes with a build level like this are...more

Added a comment about product review Is Bigger Better? All-New Öhlins RXF 38 m.2 Reviewed 7/28/2021 6:56 AM
teethandnails

I hope they have improved the reliability. I had early STX22 and a RXF36 models on a 2017 Enduro 29. They felt great and were relatively easy to setup, but both had major reliability issues that presented themselves in the first 6 months. The shock lost all its dampening, and had to be replaced. The fork started LOSING travel, starting at 160mm, and then sinking eventually to a static 130mm. I am in the Moto industry and Ohlins has always been the gold standard, so hoping the new MTB stuff is more reliable than what I dealt with.
