MBR is soo bad sometimes I find it amusing.
They jump on the bandwagon of every trend and try to make you feel inferior if you don't follow suit by buying the latests and greatest kit, e.g:
Your bars must be 711mm or wider or you'll crash.
If you don't have 15 or 20mm axle forks your wheel will fall out and you'll die.
If you don't have a bolt through rear end on your bike it will be too flexible and unrideable.
Any pre FIT cartridge Fox forks are useless (my open bath 32s are actually plusher than my FIT 36s).
You must have a tapered headtube otherwise the front end of your bike will flex like mad.
They seem totally obsessed with upsizing every bike they test to a large frame (they don't even consider standover height or the bike looking stupid as little seatpost is showing) even though their testers would better fit a medium as they want the extra stability of the longer wheelbase...WTF!
They never test any frame only custom builds or anything from non-mainstream manufacturers these days. I can't remember the last time they tested any fairly common 'frame only' brands such as Santa Cruz, Intense, Turner or Cove.
The reviews of full suss bikes never seem to give any details of the things you actually want to know such as small bump compliance, if there is any brake jack and if there is any pedal feedback when in the granny ring. On second thoughts this is probably because the Orange 5 suffers from brake jack and pedal feedback, but they never have a bad word to say about it.
They don't seem to know what people are actually riding as all the talk is about you having to own a full suss, whereas more and more people are riding longer travel steel and alloy hardtails which they never test.
