    Write a review get some rep!

    It is that time of year as a cyclist's thoughts turn to dirt singletrack, epic rides and new swag.

    So I challenge you to contribute a good review to the MTBR reviews here: Mountain Bike Product Reviews - Mtbr.com

    Go to your newly purchased and well sorted out bike, or that bike you have had for a year or a couple of years or forever and write up a fab review, write a boffo followup review, or write an end of the line, bike is done, Dear John review so those that come after you will be sure of their purchase and be able to hit those trails knowing you have trail tested it to the best of your ability.

    This responsibility doesn't come cheaply, so be honest and forthcoming, contribute to the site and post a link to your review here. Others will look at your review, nod their heads appreciatively and then come back and rep the heck out of you because your review was so awesome!

    Do it!

    Do it now!

    Just to know, can't we get a link to all our reviews in our CP user account ? When I post a review, I see the system auto-fill my username and email address into the field. Will it be possible to have a list of the reviews we posted while logged in ?

    Nice write up man! I think they were wanting the reviews in the Reviews section of MTBR though, and not an informal write-up in the forums. Maybe you can cut and paste some of the info into a review for the bike.

    Its great that you compared the SB-66 and SB-95, how does the SB-95 compare to some of the competition out there from your assessment? It helps me if I have a baseline to compare it to.

    I own a Santa Cruz Tallboy Carbon, and I am pretty intrigued at the suspension design that Yeti came up with. It shows that they are willing to step outside the box and create something new! Previously they have always played it safe and used proven suspension designs which didn't make it all that different than other products out there. Now with the Switch Technology, I think they bring something different and special..or at least uniquely "Yeti" to the table!

    Have you rode any Tallboys, Jet9 RDOs, Epics, AnthemX29s or DW-Link bikes to compare how the suspension perform compared to the SB-95?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Oops I'll have to jump over to the "real" review, then...fixed it:

    Yeti Cycles SB-95 29er Full Suspension Reviews

    As far as comparison goes, I only rode the Yetis that day...major homer, that's me

    I have rode the Mojo HD, which I absolutely love as well. And, I hear it is cert'd for 650b in 140 mode. So that intrigues me. The HD pedaled wonderfully and felt great with a 160 fork...although on real steep climbs I did knock it down to 120 with the TALAS. Again, I can speak to this ride's ability on the ups since I think I was even more hungover for that demo (trend? ). That bike, being carbon, was so light it virtually felt like it was pedaling itself. I would expect the Ripley to follow suit.

    I think that Santa Cruz was at Fruita last year, as was Specialized. I will have to give either a Tallboy or a Stumpy a go. Will report back...in the review area of course.

    Scott Scale 29 Team vs Specialized Carve Expert

    I moved from 26 to 29 last year as an intermediate rider. I am tall but not too chunky so the spaciousness of a 29er combined with rolling resistance that is more familiar to me (was a road bike rider and never got used to 26 wheels with decent tread on tarmac) seemed logical.

    As soon as I received the bike I fell in love with it. I couldn't believe how well it rolled on my commute, and thought it handled XC pretty well. I was never totally convinced about the stiffness of the Alex rims and spoke system combined with the jelly-like Rocket Rons, but it all worked and my fear of buckling never came true. I was very happy with the drive train and brakes. My only real criticism of the Scott Scale Team 29 was the squiffy steering - it just didn't work intuitively and picking a route through a tight chicane on or off road was interesting. Not sexy.

    The my beloved Scale was stolen from my garage (if you're reading this, scum, I hope you cracked your pelvis in two when you tried to ride a bike set up for someone 6'5") and my insurance agent was brilliant, but alas not Scott Scale Team 29ers were due into the UK for some time (2012) so I had no choice but to select another bike. The bike shop the insurance company hooked me up with immediately suggested the Specialized Carve Expert 29, which is new this season. It would have been a contender last year, but it simply didn't exist in 2011.

    The Carve is very similar in specification, but I had to upgrade by a few quid to get the Expert model. I am very used to buying the largest frame size in the range, but amazingly Specialized do an XXL Carve compared to the XL Scott Scale. For the first time in my life I was riding a bike that not only fitted me, but was not at the extreme end of the scale, and with all the worries that come with that such as 'is this geometry REALLY successful, or is it just there to soak up the market of taller riders?'. Yey! I'm not considered a freak any more!

    My first impression was that it was a better frame than the Scott, only slightly, but cleaner lines and better weld finishing. Drive train, brakes etc all very similar in feel and quality. The big and very noticeable immediate negative was the rolling resistance, which made it distinctly harder to ride tarmac... but then I took it off-road:

    A completely different experience to the Scott Scale - I forget I'm riding a 29 - there's absolutely no hint that the rims are delicate, the geometry is so sweet picking those tough chicanes is now a very enjoyable experience. Sexual!

    Carve is an excellent name for the bike. I am a snowboarder and I know all about carving, and this bike replicates that feel - something just not possible on the Scott due, I suspect, to the geometry combined with the 100mm RS fork. I haven't managed to bottom out the 80mm Recon yet so I am currently agreeing with Specialized that 100mm isn't absolutely necessary for my kind of riding.

    I complained about the rolling resistance of the Captain Controls, but off-road it clicked in my head that Specialized have committed this bike to off-road, and it works extremely well! I can now mentally forgive the rolling resistance on tarmac because I'm safe in the knowledge that plugging my way out of deep mud is easy compared to the Rocket Rons.

    I feel I can throw the bike around like a BMX compared to the Scott which always felt like riding a lanky horse off road.

    Hats off to Specialized for getting the geometry to work so dam well for someone my height. I love Scott and will never look away from them - they are innovators at heart and make excellent products, but in this case, it just goes to show that a year is a long time in the 29er world.

    The Carve is very similar in specification, but I had to upgrade by a few quid to get the Expert model. I am very used to buying the largest frame size in the range, but amazingly Specialized do an XXL Carve compared to the XL Scott Scale. For the first time in my life I was riding a bike that not only fitted me, but was not at the extreme end of the scale, and with all the worries that come with that such as 'is this geometry REALLY successful, or is it just there to soak up the market of taller riders?'. Yey! I'm not considered a freak any more!

    My first impression was that it was a better frame than the Scott, only slightly, but cleaner lines and better weld finishing. Drive train, brakes etc all very similar in feel and quality. The big and very noticeable immediate negative was the rolling resistance, which made it distinctly harder to ride tarmac... but then I took it off-road:

    A completely different experience to the Scott Scale - I forget I'm riding a 29 - there's absolutely no hint that the rims are delicate, the geometry is so sweet picking those tough chicanes is now a very enjoyable experience. Sexual!

    Carve is an excellent name for the bike. I am a snowboarder and I know all about carving, and this bike replicates that feel - something just not possible on the Scott due, I suspect, to the geometry combined with the 100mm RS fork. I haven't managed to bottom out the 80mm Recon yet so I am currently agreeing with Specialized that 100mm isn't absolutely necessary for my kind of riding.

    I complained about the rolling resistance of the Captain Controls, but off-road it clicked in my head that Specialized have committed this bike to off-road, and it works extremely well! I can now mentally forgive the rolling resistance on tarmac because I'm safe in the knowledge that plugging my way out of deep mud is easy compared to the Rocket Rons.

    I feel I can throw the bike around like a BMX compared to the Scott which always felt like riding a lanky horse off road.

    Hats off to Specialized for getting the geometry to work so dam well for someone my height. I love Scott and will never look away from them - they are innovators at heart and make excellent products, but in this case, it just goes to show that a year is a long time in the 29er world.
    Thanks for the review! See if you can write up one here as well: Scott Scale 29 Team 29er Hardtail Reviews and Specialized Carve Expert 29 29er Hardtail Reviews

    Can't review my own bike

    Last week I received on the mail my DB Overdrive 29er. To my disappointment I found a spoke bent and the rear derailleur bent towards the wheel. Since I got my bike in Friday and got it out of the box at night I have had to stare at it in my living room all weekend instead of hitting the road

    I can't wait to call Diamondback on Monday and try to get this squared away. I had knee surgery in January and riding a bike on the street wil be a perfect low impact exercise until the dr. releases me to do more hard core activities (like riding on dirt roads).

    I have also started a thread and keep everybody posted on my experience with costumer service. Once the bike is ready to go I will be more than glad to write a review.

    Best of luck with your bike. The damages look like they could be from shipping, and not DB's fault. Either way, hope it works out for you.

    No I have not. In the right hands I am sure a regular TB is capable just about everywhere too (I have friend who rides his Rigid SS 9er at Northstar just to mess with people), but I take full advantage of any "trail" help I can get. (not sure I could take a SS 9er off of the curb in front of my house ) I spent 3 hours last night playing with the fork and tire pressures. I think I am "dialed". Thanks Ace.

    Post up the links. You gain rep by people giving you positive rep through your account, not by writing reviews. The reviews are a way for people to give you rep for doing something helpful for MTBR.

    I reviewed my cycle computer

    It may be hard to explain to my wife that I need to go out and buy more stuff so that I can have more chances to win some freebees. I could really use the new tires. The grand prize would be pretty sweet too.

    Yeah, I've notified them (MTBR) about this but no changes so far,

    BTW... the product description and the price is wrong too or maybe just the tittle, pick your poison.
