December's Top Vital MTB Member Reviewer Award

Every month we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize, and this month Jenson USA pitched in another $100 gift card! Vital member jackhill took home top honors in December after writing a great review. Here's a recap of his best:


Outsider Bikes BoXXer Offset Crown Kit - "If you are a setup nerd, these should be high on your list. I do recommend you have a modern bike (ie long reach/wheelbase), as these will shorten the wheelbase depending on what cups you run. To say I'm surprised the big boys haven't made these a thing yet would be an understatement. My guess has to do with old geometry, and manufacturers accounting for bad numbers too much.

I ride a 2017 Kona Operator 27.5 size large, and I'm 5'10 with short legs. I also have an Avalanche cartridge in my Boxxer chassis, and Avalanche shock in the back, which may factor into your decision regarding my experience.

Great design, great construction, and an improvement in your bikes handling are all selling points of these crowns. Skilled riders will notice the difference, especially in tight corners and on rough tracks. Make sure you are okay with reducing your wheelbase though, as this might make the wrong bike feel wonky. I would recommend these to anyone looking to get a bit "more good" out of their current set up. The only downside is the price." - Read more»
