Field Test: 3 Full Suspension Mountain Bikes Under $3000
The sport continues to evolve. What is good today probably will be wrong for tomorrow. When I first toured bike shops, I did slide shows to explain that you could actually ride trails on bikes. I was adamant then, that the only suspension you needed was in your arms and legs. Later, I designed and built one of the first viable dual-suspension trail bikes. Technology that applies today will be discarded in the future. I've had to reinvent myself a few times to stay current. If you live long enough, at some point, you'll face that challenge.

@Rubberelli: Depends upon what you call "trails" in your neck of he woods. In BC and Hurricane, Utah, the Whyte is a trail bike.

MSRPs are inching up for all bike brands. We quoted the prices given to us at the Field Test dates for consistency.

No worries, PB's affordable trail bike reviews are a continuing series. Suggestions for future tests are much appreciated.

Exploring the Relationship Between Handlebar vs Stem Length
@lister11, Without being able to measure his bar/stem it would just be speculation, but your assumption that his bar may have put his hands behind or at the steering axis with the 15mm stem is probably right.

@ Shralpophiliac I got most of the statistics from PB Bike Checks

Field Test: GT Sensor Carbon Expert
Definitely ride one and see for yourself. I spent more time on the GT during the test than any other bike. Some of those laps were spent fine tuning the suspension in order to correct the notchiness we experienced. When compared to a handful of others with similar travel, the difference was clear enough to make it an issue in the review. As I mentioned, in a different context, where the techy pitches were spaced between long, smoother sections of trail, the Sensor's shock tune and kinematics would be praiseworthy. Also, many prefer a super firm pedaling platform, at the expense of small bump compliance, you'll just need to keep your speed up. I did not confirm the anti-squat percentage, but (watch the boulder footage) the chassis does not rock rearward under large pedaling efforts, which is impressive, so the GT either has a significant percentage of anti-squat built into the design, or it has a combination of factors that provide the same effect.
