    I agree with the previous comment. If you have to pack up your rooftop tent to leave the campsite each day, it isnt very useful. Im also wondering about the rooftop load limits for most vehicles? If the tent weighs 75-100lbs, and you add two to three people +some gear (another at least 300-500lbs) im pretty sure your roof rails/roof arent going to like it too much. Most rooftop rail ratings are in the 150lb range (unless you have some aftermarket rails designed for heavier loads)

  • Rob says:

    This is perfect for those far away races where you have to spend a nite. RTT solves the problem of no camping at race site, as you are still allowed to sleep in car, RV, in the parking lot. This is much cheaper than an RV, and much more comfortable than sleeping in the car.

    $160 :0 for some bits and a qr. I’ll stick with the alternatives lol

    • Craig says:

      Also, sticking extra weight into the axle, part of “unsprung weight” is detrimental to suspension. Just sticking this on the frame somewhere would be a much better place.

  • gg says:

    I9 is way off base juss like their special ALU spokes – Are they trying to get consumer to buy elsewhere or just playing highbrow ?
    Now Wheels is bang on. Looks like quality tools and the price is super.
    Great job !

    Most of these make no sense at all. Many aren’t even bike upgrades. Only the tires upgrade and dropper post here makes any sense for an owner of an older bike. For a drivetrain upgrade, I’d say consider one of the 1×11 offerings that are now dropping in price. Wheels? Sure, that makes sense. Get a set of Stans or Easton Arcs laced to Hope hubs.

  • gg says:

    Agree high priced non-compatible upgrades not worth it for the most part.
    Really new Camelbak bladder anything wrong with version -1 ?
    Maybe a 1 x Shimano, but Gregg are you getting too much free stuff to be based in reality anymore ?
    How about talking to Park and get a retro kit so old truing stands can be used for new wheel sizes – NOT buying a whole darn stand !!!

  • Chicken_Rider says:

    If you doing an upgrade, you most likely do not have a 27.5 bike, but a 26, so why not focus on parts for a 26er?

  • loll says:

    You guys should google the GT verb review online. Someone actually said the pivots creak and squeak really bad after 10 rides and requires constant relubricating and tear down, only with that condition coming back after a few rides.

    At this price point, the likely owner is a weekend warrior who wants to spent time riding more than they do tearing down the bike after 10 rides. Sure, some level of maintenance is a good thing to keep a bike working properly. But 10 rides, and then every three rides after is just way too frequent.

    During the late 90s, I owned a Proflex 655 that was $999. The pivot creaked so much that it took all the fun out of enjoyment of riding the bike. After taking the pivots apart and heavily regreasing it, I usually get about one quiet ride in.

    Fast forward 20 years to date, a squeaking/creaking full suspension bike at one grand should not be doing that.

    Buyer beware…

  • singletrackmack says:

    Got to call you out loll, because proflex only had two types of pivots up to 1995, which is the year you claim you bought your proflex. It was either the same pivot that came on the top of the line +$3k 1994 proflex or the same as the top of the line 1995 model. There were no budget pivots for proflex. And as far as you owning a profile 655, uh, well no, you did not own a proflex 655 and anyone can prove that easily.

  • loll says:

    yes, was thinking this out last night. It was actually a proflex 657 (not 655)…Is been too long. But the same comments applied, the pivot creak so much that I hated riding that bike.

    I was contemplating a GT Verb as a cheap second bike since I only have a hardtail these days, but after reading people’s review and the pivot, it remind me of exactly why i dont own the proflex 657 anymore.

  • Todd Frankman says:

    Every one of those bikes has a really bad fork that would limit riding enjoyment. Better to buy a used bike in good shape with a decent fork than one of these. You would get much more bike.

    • sofakinold says:

      Calling the RS Recon Silver and the Manitou Radium “Bad” forks is a bit much. Probably Todd is riding a fork that cost as much as or more than any of the bikes in this category. These bikes are specifically built for riders who aren’t going drop $4000+ on a ride. Which is the majority of buyers in the market place.

      Having said that, I must say that after getting into the business of providing the best bike for the buck to folks on a budget or just weekend warriors, I’ve had to drop the sanctimonial Single track snobbery.

      Forks that work well and can get riders into the back country with confidence under $300 and are few and both the Recon and Radium can do it.

    Funny how you guys describe the POC rain jacket for riding to be an ‘oddity’.

    When was the last time you rode your bike somewhere without having first transported in on your car?
