Pinkbike Awards: Value Mountain Bike of the Year Winner
I doubt it was a factor but I've seen that YT seems of have poorer QC then other brands . I asked a LBS about 2 YT boxes in the shop and they we're both DOA customer bikes. Local "YT" guy that has had at least 7 has had 2 DOA bikes . Neither the guy or the Bike shop had a problem with DOA's but both were pissed about waiting 90 days for replacements to do supply issues , when they could still apparently buy a new one on the website and they were showing in stock. Another thing I've noticed is in the last 3 years I saw a Huge boom in YTs on local trails and now I haven't seen one I maybe 6 months .

Ridden & Rated: 4 Trail Bikes Under $3,000
@gnarnaimo: Funny enough I stopped using a bottle because I can stand the sloshing . Hydradtion packs create a vacuum when you drink out of them so I'm not exactly sure how one would slosh. But pack vs bottle is boarder line a wheelsize debate .

Bike Check: Martin Maes' GT Force - EWS Finale Ligure 2018
Never had a problem with mine at all on the old Force and it worked really well and was a great climber. It was linear digressive which was kinda odd but I think that may have been to great a linear feel throughout the travel . I could see that feeling good but it might not have any bottom out control. But I road the Force as a long travel trail bike so it never really mattered.

@eswebster: They leak Stan's but don't leak orange or there own sealent something do with a chemical in Stan's . My trail King was flat every day with Stans and maybe slime I think it was? LBS said Continental "like" Orange sealent . Lasted a week or 2 then no problem.
