Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
@vinay: I devide my time between a steel Kona Honzo single speed and a Evil Wreckoning. I’d have no qualms running NX after having spent a solid couple of months on a bike that had the 11 speed version last year. My last couple of bikes have had XO drivetrains, but NX performed equally as well.

Review: Time Speciale 12 Enduro Pedal
I've used Time pedals in assorted forms since '95. They are insanely reliable and require zero maintenance. Currently a set of MX8's and some ATAC Z-controls* are doing time on my bikes. I think the Speciales are a step in the right direction, but with two major caveats. Number one, the cost. I've never paid more than $100 for any Times (usually scored them lightly used) and honestly the lower end models (Z's, Aliums) hold up better than the fancier ones. Secondly, speaking of fancy, the adjustable ones they've done intermittently over the years never felt as good as the simple ATAC's nor were they as durable. It is my hope that this design will be available with the simple ATAC system at lower price point and then they'll have another killer. *The Z-controls and the Aliums are the most bombproof pedals from Time, period. They weigh more than most, but are rock solid.

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@bohns1: Uh yeah, no doubt. A related sad, but true cliche is "What do you call professional bike racers? Homeless." :(

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@petehvid: Weagle also has the Split-Pivot design (employed by Devinci & Salsa) which is virtually the same as Trek's ABP. The DELTA while also a "single-pivot" is a very different design. All of his designs (DW-Link, Split-Pivot, DELTA) ride well, however I think The DELTA has the most unique feel of all of them.

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
@WrenchRy87: That was the last anything was ever said regarding Evil on PB and that was nearly three years ago. Since that time Evil has released basically three new bikes (including the update to the Following) none of which have been reviewed let alone even mentioned.

Review: Orbea Rallon M-LTD
I demoed the Rallon last year as part my ongoing effort to ride all similar bikes (the only widely available long travel 29er I haven't ridden is the Sentinel) to my own whip the Evil Wreckoning. The Rallon as noted in this review has a decidedly more trail bike feel. It feels much more upright and and dare I say twitchy than the Evil (which PB may never review :/). As far as all around riding, it was not any faster an ascender and the Evil demolishes it on the descents. I think it would be a great "enduro" bike if you are coming from a more XC-ish background, but the Evil reigns as a far more confidence-inspiring rig when the going gets crazy and gives up little the rest of the time.
