Robin Wallner's Ibis Mojo HD3 Bike Check - EWS Round 5, Aspen-Snowmass
@bluumax: They already have timed technical climbing in the stages, we just don't hear about it. Most enduro races do.

Stages Cycling - UCI WC DH - Leogang Power Competition Winner
I think that you guys are too bent on the equations rather than understanding the quick burst power these guys have and use. In DH, the power only needs to come from maybe even less than one pedal stroke. They are going really fast to begin with, in a really high gear. Max power for a DH racer is not going to be a 5 or more second average. Max power is peak, not an average.

Because it also tracks cadence with power output. The data used is from when one is pedaling.

Bulk and size have nothing to do with power output. Muscle density is where it's at. The most powerful short bursts will come from WC DH racers when it comes to cyclists. It's what they train for.

Behind the Bike: Developing the XXL Santa Cruz V10
The seat is actually used to control the bike in turns. That is the reason why the seats aren't slammed.

To show that there are other companies making them overseas which won't be impacted by the lawsuit.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@hellbelly: How many volume reducers did those two bikes have in them when you demoed them? I had a db air on my bronson v1 and it was good, but did take a lot of tuning to get right. Even the recommended settings weren't up to par for me. My Nomad was tuned before I got it with the monarch plus, however the fox float x2 is way better and even pedals better now. Rides a little better than the CCDB air with small bumps and big hits. Pretty similar other than that. It took me about a month to get my v1 bronson right and I'm a licensed suspension technician.

Santa Cruz Tallboy - First Ride
@hellbelly: That was a trait of VPP bikes in the past. The current models don't have much of that at all. I understand that they used to hang up some, my V1 bronson did that until you really learned how to ride it. I've never seem any recent reviews that said that though. I came from riding different FSR bikes, and it took a while to learn how to ride VPP bikes, but when you get them setup right, they're really fast. VPP bikes do need very aggressive spring curves to function at their best. You have to run about 4 volume reducers to get them to ramp up well and keep them high in their travel. Suspension setup is more critical with VPP than any others that I've ridden. DW link bikes do pedal well, however VPP is still one of the better pedaling designs out there. Especially with all the 4 bar/ horst link bikes out there these days.

VPP bikes are known for their good pedaling. May not pedal like a Yeti, but neither does the Trek. Santa Cruz has a much better warranty as well. Each to their own though, the best thing that one can do is buy the bike that rides the best for them. Plenty of good bikes out there these days.
