Review: 2022 Vitus Sommet 297 AMP - Good Performance, Great Price
Love the reach numbers on newer bikes! You can go 2 sizes down and still be able to party with a good-looking bike, nice!

Poll: Would You Choose Custom Geometry If You Could?
Buy a medium 29er, because the top tube won't be bent as on the 27er and put smaller wheels on it and go shred.

Opinion: Are New Bike Component Standards Really That Bad?
It is not a standard, as there is nothing stardard about it. Mind you, you can always take a boost frame and shave off 1mm and make it accept a 150mm rear hub, a real one, not a Hope one, the chainline and dish will be fine. 15mm axles also just came to fruition because "reasons". I would find it acceptable if standards had evolved as improvements but it does not really seem that way somehow, they are more like fads than anything else. Pros running 12 gears but 3 rotor bolts and moto foam instead of a top cap, incredible! Mullet bikes are a stupid idea, one year later every brand is selling one. You can hardly find a 8 and 9 speed chain in local bike shops, the same goes for cassettes. Tough 26" rims are not that easy to come by in a desired variety, the same goes for tires. Nothing is really pushed on us, we are getting pushed out of the "hobby".

Updated: The Fest Series Parts Ways with Darkfest
If I understood correctly, from the numerous posts and writings about the issue at hand, Fest Series are jealous of Dark Fest and Loose Fest, since the only media praise and recognition and views to go them. It is incredibly childish and up to par with how problems seem to have been handled over the past few years. Quick fixes to non-existing problems, grey apron services, Übers, Dude Scaping, etc. One faces a problem and simply bounces off or decides to take the path of least resistance. Instead of upping their game and rising up to the challenge of actually trying to push this not so popular sport, they say it is not a core value to get media recognition on social platforms. I do not think Sam will have a problem with Dark Fest, as it is the only one the 53 kids at the skatepark talk about half a year long. Dark Fest and Loose Fest are at the core of Freeride and we all know it. Not wanting to be on YT or IG may be a valid point for some but having media presence of both platforms does not mean that the sport or people are selling out. "Since DarkFest has always been about shredding big jumps, having an inclusive and diverse rider list, and sharing our good times with everyone through social media, we have mutually decided to go our own ways." If this statement is against core values, then what are said values?

First Look: Devlin Cycles' Long Reach Trail Bike Prototype
Looks too good! Now just imagine throwing away the cockpit and putting a nice set of 50mm risers and bringing that overexaggerated reach a tad back! Dreams!

Field Trip: Devinci's $2,299 Marshall is a Capable All-Rounder
Imagine this in a size M with 27.5 wheels, a decent non-flatbar cockpit, a good fork and shock and 7 gears in the back and you have yourself a winner!

Field Trip: Vitus' $1,449 Sentier Hits That Middle Ground
This is awesome! Sell the 29s and the gears and the fork and the cockpit and put some 27.5s with a 150mm fork, 9 gears and a real handlebar and you'll be cookin'!
