Yeah I was a little surprised myself

8/10 for the Kona, i appreciate the need for bottle and stuff strapped to the frame, i just don't like how it looks.

This, for me, is perfect. I've had it 5 years, and despite all the others I've ridden, this is still the best all rounder. Just treated it to the 12 speed stuff, and a longer reverb from the Pivot

This thread is f*ckin' everywhere with the ratings. Have seen some VERY nice bikes get a 6, and some absolutely stock ass uninspired stuff get 10s. Welcome to pinkbike.

That Santa Cruz is dope af too, just prefer a little longer travel for my style 8.5/10. Love the fact that you are like "hey screw new bikes, this one is the fave for me"!

This is my dream build Ronda the Remedy

Oh, I have plenty of other, newer, bikes that do specific things better, like XC or Enduro (see further back in the thread). This one is just the best all rounder (it’s the only one I’ve raced both XC and enduro on). All the others will be moved on eventually, this one won’t.

8/10 for the remedy. BLACK GRIPS MAN!

9/10 normally I'm not a fan of mixing multiple colours, but there's just something about yours that makes it work well

Sorry to say but the Trek is just terrible. So terrible that I won't even rate it.

If it weren't for the colour mismatch it would be half decent. As it is I do not like. That's being nice...

9/10 on spec
7/10 on looks the green stem, pink grips and blue bars really kill it for me

@LAballin23

Do you ever get cat called by other dudes on the trail?

...and you're like "hey screw matching..." LOL. Actually at first I hated the cockpit color combo, but after looking the whole thing over, it's more like instead of making everything black "stealth" "murdered out" cliche black, you said hey the frame and stuff is already black, let's make everything else clash and be crazy as much as possible for fun contrasting accents. A few decades ago it'd be a hit, lol didn't mean that as an insult sorry. I sort of like it, confusingly.
PS does Ronda get rowdy?

When it fits it fits! I love when people realize they don't need the latest and greatest!!
