First Ride: 2019 Orbea Oiz
If you're an XC racer, yes it's worth it. If you're not an XC racer, get that dropper/Pike/Minions/1900g wheels etc and go rip stuff. And a proper trail bike frame is going to be more than 2100g last I checked? My Top Fuel is more than that... This is an XC race bike for XC racers. And no, you're not better off with a 8kg hardtail unless you're way down on power where 2kg is a big percentage of the rider/bike package weight. For XCO and XCM a ~10kg full squish XC bike is the perfect choice for many (most?) race courses.

First Ride: Maxxis Rekon Race
Maxxis was overdue for a traditional XC race tire, Ikons are dated and no bueno when compared to most of the competition.

First Ride: 2019 Canyon Lux
Yes. This. Adding a 2nd bottle cage for 2 full sized bottles in the triangle is a huge deal for XCM & Stage racers too. Sick of having a bottle in my jersey pocket or some cobbled seatpost mount.

Orbea Announces Oiz XC Bike
69 deg HTA, 2 bottle cages, 1600g w/o shock, no proprietary shock BS, cleanest rear lockout routing of all time, longer and lower but not insane and 2 bottle cages. Looks like a great XCO/XCM option, probably builds up to 20# flat in L/XL with xx1/Fox32SC/race wheels and rubber.

Finished: Ask Us Anything With Norco Bicycles
When are the Boost XC frames coming out? Got a great local shop here that moves norcos but all us XC racers can't go backwards to 142 rear bikes.
