This bike for $3,000 is a steal, especially considering you'll likely get good shop service to go along with it. It's an excellent introduction to how much fun full suspension can be. The frame will last you years, as will most of the components. If you're a heavier rider (175lbs+) you may see some early wear on the items mentioned in the review, however.

Who know a simple bent spoke could prevent so much frustration? I can't do without this tool.

We appreciate you riding our hubs!

If your drive-side end cap keeps sliding off too easily it could be two things:

Added reply in a thread Plugs for bontrager rhythm plus grips 7/20/2016 1:01 PM

It's difficult to tell what type of plugs are included with the Rhythm Plus grips by looking at photos online, so I'll cover the basics. Most bar plugs get pushed into the bar. Sometimes it's necessary to whack it with a mallet.

They may reduce the number of times it would occur, though it'd still happen due to mechanicals and the lack of qualifiers in beginner/intermediate/expert classes. Pros often get a full minute or more, depending on the venue. If everyone got a minute, ... more »

He was probably late because the line to the porta-potty he was in was longer than expected. You know, since you can't just piss in the woods without getting fined.

After a lot of wait I finally managed to get hold of an Öhlins TTX 22M coil shock for my Spartan. I just got back from one week of bike park riding in Åre, Sweden, and I can't be happier about the performance of the bike. I was really surprised about how much the suspension...more

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure Krunk is now on a modified version of the Smuggler with a tad more travel. It may even use the new metric shock sizing and upper mount bearings. I own a Smuggler as well and love the thing, but I'd be hard pressed to take it for many laps at SV.
