Rocky Mountain's New Thunderbolt - First Look
@DemoN8: My favorite bike ever, for the style of riding I do. You will definitely need the XL and you'll probably break the chainstay like I have, so hold onto your warranty info! At your size anything is going to break so it's nothing against Transition. But I totally recommend the Scout

Rocky Mountain's New Thunderbolt - First Look
@onemanarmy: I'm on my third chainstay on the Scout, and I've had other stuff break(Race Face BB's are crap!), get warrantied and I hate the waiting of 3 days to 2 weeks to get a part. I sold my other bikes since I prefer the Scout over anything else I've ridden, so I figure get a second one at some point so I'm never off the bike too long..plus I'd love to try the Lyric at 150 on a newer Scout :)

Rocky Mountain's New Thunderbolt - First Look
After getting a Transition Scout w/125 rear travel I sold my 160 bike(had about five over the years). Bumped the front up to 150, and it takes anything the longer travel bikes took but more fun. Also, I'm a heavier/taller rider at 6'4, 210 and I'm riding a size Large...small and flicky, and I've been amazed at how it handles, so much so I'm going to get a second one for back up :)

RSD Bikes Release 27.5+ MiddleChild Steel Enduro Bike
I got nostalgic a couple years ago and built up an "aggressive" steel hardtail. It was pretty damn sweet, but after a handful of laps on the trails, it was ridden more to the bar than anything else, so, I sold it. It's tough to leave full suspension fun

Searching for the Elusive "Perfect Day" in Bali
I've traveled a lot of places and was happy i brought my bike...Bali is not a place to deal with your own bike, you'll need a scooter to get around, so it's definitely best to rent(when you do get to ride). And the couple/few trails aren't near where you'd probably stay Pennyrisk describes it well and my two cents... I was there in "16 so new stuff may exist. Bali Bike Park is a lot of fun but it isn't very big and it closes by 2ish due to rain schedules, so you pack in runs and with the crazy traffic it turns into a whole day trip. I also did the "Enduro" guided trek, and this was one of my favorite days of the trip...the "trail" was a lot of foot paths and dirt roads from farmers, and some really sketchy spots with super dry conditions and loose rocks. But it was a pretty lengthy journey with amazing views, true Balinese culture, high five-ing little kids, that ended at a very quiet beach. Was about a 4hrs. ride(I believe), but again an all day affair. I didn't do the volcano run(sadly) Other than that there isn't anything else to ride, to my knowledge. Surfing is crowded...the peninsula of Bali...is crowded. I have lots of thoughts/opinions but I'll save those. I did stay at Chillhouse(and as you said these all seem like promos), and while they do offer lots of stuff, truth is you can stay somewhere cheaper and nicer room, and still use their services. Canggu is...crowded, so there are a lot of places you can stay full of Russians, Germans, other Euros, Aussies, etc. In my opinion if you're going to make that kind of travel investment and you want to ride...go to New Zealand! I took my bike and I rode every day...I found trails all over the place, super fun surf(sometimes alone and wishing someone was around), rode through towns to explore, etc. Magic! Or, trek through N. America

Fanny Packs For All? High Above's Lookout Pack - Review
$100 and it doesn't even have a bladder??!! I paid $20 for one on ebay about 4yrs ago...just as much storage AND has a hydration bladder and tube that clips onto the belt. Works great!
