Earn $100 at Jenson USA for Your Vital MTB Member Reviews

Every 30 days we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize. This month Jenson USA pitched in a $100 gift card! Vital MTB member dirtworks911 wrote six outstanding reviews, earning the Top Reviewer spot. Here's a recap of his best:


Race Face Turbine Dropper Post - "The Race Face Turbine seatpost appears to be just another average seatpost in a sea of droppers. When looking into what makes the Turbine different, you’ll quickly see that it separates itself from the rest in a few unique ways. The braking system really does lock the post in it’s travel when adjusted correctly (make sure you have that 2-3mm of lever play). In addition to that, it runs on super low PSI which has thus far allowed the dropper to be quite durable. I’ve only had the post for a few months so it’s too early to give a full report on how it holds up, but with the knowledge Race Face has put out there, I’ll have a hard time believing I’ll experience a major issue. All and all, I’ve been quite satisfied with this post." - Read more»


Race Face Next R 35 Bars - "The Next R line up from Race Face was designed to fill the gap between the XC /AM focused Next and DH focused SixC component groups. Although other components like the Next R stem and crank may fill this gap, personally I feel that the Next R carbon handlebar are potentially just a rebranded SixC bar (they share the same profile, weight, and feel). Is this a bad thing? If you're a true weight weenie and a true Next / SixC bridge gapper, maybe but for me, No. The SixC carbon bar is one the best aggressive bars on the market. If price is a factor, go with the SixC or Next R that’s a better deal. I can confidently say they will perform identically. If you Mr. “Enduro," go with the Next R because you know, they are so much more enduro." - Read more»


Ibis 3D Forged Stem - "Coming in at just $45, I really can’t find fault with the Ibis 3D stem. It’s got good looking graphics and shape, descent weight, and keeps the bars straight with those 5mm steerer bolts. The only thing that really made me decide to upgrade from this stem was the slightly narrow 45mm width bar clamp surface. On the roughest of terrain, I felt the bars twist a little more than I would like. That being said, the 3D stem is a great intermediate stem and is at a great price point." - Read more»
