Video: Mike vs Mike: Geometry Battle - Specialized Stumpjumper vs EVO
I took a full day demoing the Evo 29 alloy on steep trails, a lot of climbing, and some high speed chunk. Super fun bike. That said, I didn't feel like it was a great climbing bike. It was fine, but felt slower than my coil sprung enduro 29, which isn't saying a lot. High speed and steep descents were awesome, I was into it. That bottom bracket height just didn't work for me though. If the BB was just slightly higher I would have bought it.

Video: The Struggles of a Downhill Racer From A Flat Country
I can’t think of anywhere within 4 hours of Tahoe that is as flat as the Netherlands.

Medium 2017 Sworks Enduro 29 Purchased new by me. As spec'd from factory (Dt 240 carbon wheels, xx eagle drivetrain, etc) other than following modifications: BikeYoke yoke (allows 8.5/2.5 eyelet shock usage) Fox DHX2 with 500lb lightweight fox spring (right for me at 160#) Gold XX1 cassette Bike has been ridden frequently and extremely well maintained. Fox DHX2 has ZERO miles on it since full damper & seal rebuild at fox factory Ohlins fork had full damper rebuild and servicing by Ohlins in summer 2018 Brand new Butcher Grid 2.6 on rear, Minion 2.5 Exo front. Bike is solid and needs nothing. I do ride my bikes, so it has wear, small rub and chips in spots, but overall looks clean and good. No serious damage anywhere. I don't have much presence on pink bike, but my local bike shop can vouch for me and the condition of the enduro. I just have too many bikes. Located in Truckee, CA, but can make it available in Sacramento or the east bay.

Specialized Releases New Eliminator Tire
Interesting, I’ve spent a fair amount of time on Grid tires and have had minimal puncture issues. I did have super fast wear though. Go figure.

Bike Check: Geoff Kabush's Enduro-fied Yeti SB130
Such drama on the choice of a shorter travel bike. Looks like an ideal pedally Oregon race bike to me! ????????

Here's My Unno Dash Test Bike - Tell Me What You Want to Know
@Broth-Ratchurch: I’m not sure of that evaluation. I’ve got an enduro and that o-lean sucked from day 1. I replaced it with a x2 coil and it’s been running perfectly for 16 months. Let’s not even get into the rxf 36 air and what a turd that is.

Review: MRP Ribbon Coil Fork
dropping the lowers is nothing like a full damper service and should be a basic skill set along with drivetrain maintenance and bleeding brakes. It’s no big deal and not a black art.
