Xprezo Adhoc - Review
I saw an Ad hoc with the exact paint scheme at Belmont Bike Park on Jul 6. Quite a looker. No doubt it shredded the DH trails there. In my world, an Adhoc with the E:I system would be the perfect bike no?

Bienvenue à Bromont
I was just there 10 days ago! Awesome place. Trails 7, 59, and 19 were my favorites. I will be back!

Yeti SB5c - Review
i don't equate skepticism or valid questions on longevity of any new technology as blind hate. i regard yeti HIGHLY, but NO manufacturer churns out perfection every time. i think the argument that "if you haven't ridden it, then STFU" is pretty hollow. it's clear from all the pricing/carbon haters here that no one has the money OR industry connections to ride/test every single new tech that comes out. Nor, do i think you need an engineering degree to figure out what works, or what has the potential to fail/weak points if you have years of riding different suspension designs.

Yeti SB5c - Review
i could see that area packing up with mud in gloppy conditions. i know it's been tested to 500hrs...but how many rebuilds, bushings during that time? I also wished that this initial offering had more travel, more descending orientated. a 66 or 66.5 degree headtube and at least 140mm of travel i think would have made more sense given the current market trend/offerings

Santa Cruz Nomad - Review
in order to have the kind of cash to "splash around", i do something called "saving". When i get a my paycheck, i try to put alittle away for my bike addiction. over the course of a year of "saving", i end up with enough to buy what I want/need. It's cool, you should try it.

Santa Cruz Nomad - Review
a shame that this was a nomad review and most of the comments are carbon rim or Enve haters coming out from whatever rock they were hiding under. manufacturer defects/designs happen, whether to expensive items or cheap items. i'm giving Enve alot of lattitude, but think about how many thousands of these rims have been sold, vs the failures that have occurred. i don't know of any personally, and have only read about 2 (both on pinkbike). i think carbon is still a viable material for rims and in some cases superior to aluminum. and i also feel that Enve is at the top of the manufacturer list of carbon rims. they're not infallible, but i do think they back their products. i've had no ill experiences with their customer service. i own the 1st gen 27.5 AM rims, and i've beat the crap out of them. cased square edge rocks on low tire pressure, shove my wheel into more bombholes and sketch ruts than i can count. now i'm not hitting WC/Pro dh speeds but i've done some pretty bone-headed moves and these wheels have just shrugged them off. i trust them. Did the Enves take a big chunk out of my wallet? Yup Are they gonna break sometime in the future? yup. Would i buy them again? Abso-fcuking-lutely.
