Yup, sure did. I forgot to mention it in the video, but it was in the full review: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/trek-fuel-ex-review-trail-bike-2020.html :)

Aggressive with the all-caps eh. I get that you don't like it, but lowercase would have been fine, I think.

I have at least three different bikes in my shop that have Shimano brakes with wandering bite points. I think I have one set of SRAM brakes doing the same thing right now. Bottom line: mountain bike brakes have been horribly inconsistent for many, many years now. You might get a four in a row of the same model that works well, then two that don't. Or vice versa, and from all the brake companies. Everyone is trying to make them too light and too complicated.

Of course we tried some things :) Even in the middle setting, the shock doesn't offer the support that we'd like to see.

Honestly, the Tallboy is quite capable on the climbs regardless of its angles. The Blur is a ton of fun, but I'd go w/ a light-ish Tallboy if I wasn't going to race.

@brappjuice: Neither of us liked the stock 2.6" tires that come on the Fuel EX. Not terrible, but they feel a bit vague compared to something with a bit less volume and stiffer casing.
