Sticker looks gooooood bro!

Andrew Rivera says:

I like the intro! Gonna demo the recluse when I go to outerbike in crested butte in August! Going riding this morning and just like u it’s what gets me through the day! I like your short poppy style of talking along with the occasional edit to keep the vid flowing!

Oh! How’s the clipless pedals?

Charlie Brookes says:

I have a calling and I have an intense, trek, giant, and a specialized in the past and I can honestly say the evil is the best climbing bike I have ever had I am the most confident I have ever been on this bike and it is the smallest travel bike I have had. You wouldn’t go wrong with it. But I’m with you on all bike are personal. I take every bike review with a grain of salt. A bike that one person loves one hates.

Florida Trailrider says:

Nice ride and review brother. Are you still digging the clip ins? I got a pair coming in the mail. Lil nervous about it. Cheers

Bill T says:

Nice video! Enjoyed hearing your thoughts on the Recluse as I just picked up a Primer a couple of weeks ago and totally love it

BOo MonSter says:

you should try doing the ziptie upgrade yourself on your new bike, it might help with building the confidence needed to do other stuff.

Vman 77 says:

Have you tried the Santa Cruz 5010 or the tallboy

Johannes Nilsen says:

Really liking the Renthal Apex35 stem, I haven’t had a stem that held on to the bar for as long. I posted an review of it. It beats the Rf Atlas stem in performance & weight. I use RF Sixc bars, previosly used alloy bars from bontrage in 31.8. Then at as and Sixc. Defenitly will go on the next bike.

roberto alves says:

I like the trail where is the location?

BOo MonSter says:

if your having shifting issues and you think it’s because something hit your derailer I would have the alignment checked out or replace the hanger or both. just a thought.

Juank solano ulate says:

Nice video! Greetings from Costa Rica!

Tito says:

Keep up the videos brother! You will grow with time, your channel is just as good as the bigger channels!

James Mann says:

Can I buy your old dropper of you for my hardtail
