Rocky Mountain Slayer 790 MSL - Review
@weaknesseightyeight: I owned one of the first sight 650b (yellow one) which became my wife's bike set with a compact shimano 3x10 and it worked very well. Then I bought a range with 1x11 with 30 ring, and I never feel good onboard. I ride a lot of slow, techy, rooty trails and it definitively show the weakness of the suspension as it becomes literally blocked when I needed traction and steepens the head angle. Worst OTB count with this bike. Then I bought a warden and my life changed...

Rocky Mountain Slayer 790 MSL - Review
@mikelevy One thing I just can't get is why they build an enduro superbike with this much pedal kick-back (20 degrees @ 160 mm) and a trail bike (Altitude) with so low AS and PKB (5 degrees a @ 140 mm)... I demoed an Altitude 2 years ago and found the suspension was a blast, tracking and climbing everything. If I spend 5000 bucks for an enduro bike (I did), I really don't mind how good it pedal since I can fix that with shock magic (i.e. climb switch or others) but I want the suspension to be the more efficient and free doing its downhill duty, i.e. no compromise towards pedalling efficiency... If somebody can explain this trend (big bikes with high AS and PKB, like Norco Range, Pivot Firebird, Yeti SB6c, etc...), I will be happy. By the way, Norco seems to come back from this trend with the new Sight...

13 Bikes From Core Bike Show 2017
@groghunter: Maybe I confused you a bit with my answers: I'm from France, working in Canada. You certainly know there is a long history of small griefs between Great Britain and France, and in a way or another, any French or English people will keep up the flame in a gentle way. I was just adding a little more to this heritage ;-) So all I wrote is purely 2nd degree.

@mikericci: From a geographical standpoint, you're right. From all other ones, you're wrong.

2016 Pinkbike Awards - Suspension Product of the Year Winner
@IronBender: Agreed fully with that. Moreover my pike and lyric saw their performance progressively decreased between two services, thing that didn't happen with my 36 past the break in period. I would really like to know if there is a difference between OEM and aftermarket RS and Fox forks.
