The 2020 Last Tarvo Claims to be the Lightest Enduro Frame Ever
@JohanG: And which one rides better? Be honest.

@JohanG: Successful by what measure? Neither are mentioned when you're talking about the best riding bikes out there. Dollar for dollar, are you going to get either of those 2 bikes over an Ibis, Yeti, or Pivot? And those are pretty relevant bikes when we're talking the price point that this bike is playing in. Shit, for this money I'm going to build a custom bike over at the Atherton Bike site.

@WAKIdesigns: If you want to build power and explosiveness, squats and trap-bar deads.

@Alturis: No, not really. For this money I'd rather have a bike with a variation of DW-Link or some other creative suspension design, other than Horst-Link, or HL with flexy seatstays. I've ridden enough HL and single-pivot bikes vs. the others to know that I prefer the other designs out there. Just my preference, as someone who is actively searching for their next bike. HL is kind of low-hanging fruit since the patent expired.

After all that work and attention to detail to justify a premium price, they could have done something other than an unimaginative single pivot design.

First Ride: Industry Nine's New TR280 Carbon Wheelset
If you want the best hubs, just get Hadleys. Maybe they weight a smidge more, but they don't break.

@WAKIdesigns: How you do the plyo depends on what you're looking to accomplish. Most guys tend to injure themselves on the eccentric part, hence the stairs you mention. Also, the cocentric motion is what builds power while putting on less mass. During the eccentric part of the exercise, the actin/myosin is tearing, which is where muscle mass is built, which is why a lot of body builders emphasize the negatives so much, but increase their risk of tendon and connective tissue damage. The plyo between sets also helps to build more explosive strength and also strength/weight ratio than just the lift alone, however you need a longer rest before your next set of lifts if you incorporate plyo. You want to go into your next set with a reasonable rest so that you can maximize the lift. Among endurance athletes, weight training wasn't always popular, but these days the science is showing that if you carefully incorporate exercises that increase your strength/weight ratio and explosiveness, there are tangible results during competition, but like I mentioned before, you want to peak for a competition/season, then cycle it back.

@RayDolor: Ok, so you spent 34yrs not being a real orthopedic physician, are those the credentials that you're trying to throw in my face? What your post stated is that if you lift too heavy, for too long, and with poor form, you'll get hurt. Wow, what brilliant deduction. Did you actually read my post, or is that just your dementia kicking in, because I don't know what you're going on about, but I digress. Micro damage in your skeletal structure? What exactly is that? Last I checked, micro damage to your muscles (the tearing of the actin and myosin fibers) is what actually causes muscular hypotrophy. Cocentric motion also helps to build power with minimal mass, but I think that's over your head. I also take it that your patients from the MMA place next to you hurt themselves just lifting? The MMA part had nothing to do with it, correct?v And if I have to check in with anyone in 20 years, it will be with a REAL orthopedist. As someone who's actually studied real science, in a real medical school, and has been doing it for the last 30yrs, I call bullshit on what you're saying.
