Field Test: 6 Downcountry Bikes Go Up Against The Impossible Climb
@UtahBrent: I mean, tAllied fits to a "T" what they want the category to be, ideally. As someone wrote above, it would be a good race bike for XC races on trails like the Pinkbike staff ride regularly... but 99% of the XC racing population don't race on those types of trails, or even have regular access to them. I got my Exie 4 weeks ago, rode it 3 times, then won the final local race of the year. For Lane's benefit, I am 48 but it was Cat 1 open, and 2nd and 3rd place were 16 and 24 years old, respectively. It's a very, very good race bike. It has remote lockouts but I never used them that day, no need.

Video: XC Sucks with Lief Rodgers
Some of you guys are hilarious. Most of the quotes in the video were of people saying XC riders can't ride for crap. XC rider (granted, he rides other disciplines, but most of us who are any good at bikes do the same) rides XC bike on moderately aggressive terrain better than 95% of Pinkbike readers could do on a big bike and it doesn't prove anything because he races enduros as well (like many of us who race XC do) and it wasn't "an XC trail". I mean, if it goes up and down, and across country, it's kinda XC by definition. Such a weird thing to hate on what the competitive side of the sport evolved from. Or maybe that's it - many want to pretend at being competitive but actually doing it requires work and discipline. And sometimes tight clothing. Imagine being so insecure that you actually care what others ride or wear.

Field Test: Allied Cycle Works BC40 - The Fun Race Bike
@SATN-XC: It's also what makes it possible to tag the controls on the top tube in a crash, as they showed in the video. The curvy top tube of my Exie prevents this, even with the stem slammed.

Field Test: Allied Cycle Works BC40 - The Fun Race Bike
In the video, and the text, tons of references to how the bike stacks up vis-a-vis the Lapierre and the BMC, but only one passing mention of the Exie, and no direct comparison? Seems like those two were the closest to what Downcountry was originally seen as by Levy, and (reading between the lines) that the Exie is their choice for racing first, fun second, and the reverse for the Allied... but again nothing actually stated as a direct comparison. Strange to omit that.

Santa Cruz Blur CC frame, Fox 34SC Performance Elite

$3500 USD
I'm selling my 2022 Blur CC frameset now that the race season has ended. Raced 8 times, 5 wins, 3 2nd places. Great race bike, excellent condition. Was Ride Wrapped from the go; top tube has minor paint mark (pictured) from controls hitting once but zero damage and it's actually not visible until you get close and look. I've loved riding and racing this but new year, new team, new bike... Includes Fox 34SC Performance Elite fork (FIT4 Damper), Fox DPS Performance Elite shock, and Chris King headset. Will include stock chain guide I never used. To be totally clear - this ad is for frame, shock, fork, and headset only. Will sell frame only (no fork) for $2900 plus shipping. Open to reasonable offers, but I've priced this very fairly for what's on offer. Please reach out with any questions. Buyer to pay shipping in US. Local pickup OK. Have other parts on hand (not pictured) if needed for your build, just ask.

I just want to point out that 95% of the people who call Pidcock a "roadie" couldn't get that flat off a jump on the best day of their lives - much less on a 100mm XC bike with their heart rate pegged at 175 BPM. Like him or not, dude can ride a bike, ANY bike.
