I’m personally more interested in out of the box. If I wanted custom Avalanche is the next town over.

Why not dvo? Adjustable bladder pressure in the Topaz and Jade shocks seems to offer a large stock usable tuning range. Of the top in the forks is interesting too.

I’ve done my part and bought a dh bike this spring. 8 of us went to Highland this past weekend, 4 dh bikes and 4 enduro bikes, seems to be how most groups I see go. Last fall I spoke with one of the Cannondale guys and I mentioned not selling 500 bikes ... more »

My Deore clutch lasted 7-8 miles before needing to be adjusted, it was like it wasn’t even there.

I think Chromag still makes a flat bar. You should try one of those to get even more weight on your hands.

For reference, the 30-tooth/52-tooth combo is a lower ratio than the old three-ring, ten-speed setups we had back in the day. A 22-tooth/36-tooth combo is still not as low as what is on the Slash. In other words, the Slash's gearing is lower than the lowest gear but lacks the top-end.

Fair point on verifying the angle, we should definitely work that into each of our tests, regardless of the category. Thanks for the feedback!

Honestly, the seat angle wasn't discussed much because it did not stand out to any of the testers (positive or negative). The overall ride...more

I am a huge Finn Iles fan, and I think he's half right. One style is just a turned-down whip. Where we disagree is that the other style is just a turned-down whip, but lower.

I build it for the bikepark.

I've always been a fan of simplicity and for what I'm doing with this bike I don't need either so I thought it would be cleaner, simpler, lighter and more original without them.

Also the cockpit is a dream without all those levers.
