It seems absurd that pedaling a 180/175mm travel bike is now a reality, but it is. The Torque is entirely capable at gaining elevation without a chairlift or some form of shuttle.
Even with that trait, it doesn’t compromise a bit where it matters on the downs. It feels stiff, poised and like any good downhill monster, seemingly makes the rider the weak link in the equation.
I have tried my hardest to find the limit of this bike and I am disappointed to say I never got there. This bike managed to ride Crabbapple hits and Goat's Gully without adjusting a thing.
The regular Torque already has glowing reviews but mine is far better.
Since having the bike I have had the rear shock serviced several times by The Shock Howse, Replaced linkage bearings, Replaced rear hub bearing, and Replaced cables and housing.
Fork has had several services. Fork was serviced on 9/18 and has had 2 rides.

The most notable upgrade in my opinion is the coil conversion. Let me start off by saying I still have the original air spring and will include it in the sale and would be willing to swap over to the air spring before you purchase the bike. However, I strongly recommend leaving it in. Imagine the most plush fork possible. Usually coils are on cheap bike but this is not just a normal spring to replace the air. The Coil has a hydraulic bottom out that can easily be changed. With a twist of a dial you can change the fork from linear to progressive. Main downside with coil is having to find the right coil spring weight Luckily Vorsprung has a calculator to help with that. On top of that I have several springs including 35,40,and 45lb.
If you have any questions about the bike or parts pls reach out.
