    Turner V Ripley v Pivot 429c race bike

    Turner V Ripley v Pivot 429c race bike

    Has anyone ridden these three bikes head to head. Not much info or reviews around. I am after a DW race bike. which is the quickest etc.
    The reviews I have read on the Ripley V the 429c say the ripley is more XC bike yet it has 120ml travel front and rear. Can't get a demo on any of these bikes so after any info anyone has.
    Also have heard BH is coming out with a 29er DW race bike. Similar to the 429c
    Thanks folks.

    any links to review pictures video etc greatly appreciated .also looking for specific race set ups and builds reviews ie. slammed stems flat bars light wheels .etc.

    No, but why should that matter it's MTBR... The Czar is the most racy of those three based on what I have read.

    Your welcome.
