First of all, I want to say that this is my most visited site on the entire internet besides maybe Yahoo or Google. But, is it just me or is the Enduro Compare-O just a set of paid advertisements under the guise of a bike review. I took nothing away from these articles whatsoever as there really isn't any comparing from bike to bike, and frankly I could look at the geo. numbers on any if these bikes and came to the same conclusions that the reviewers came to after test rides. Not to mention that every bike got glowing reviews. I suppose all $5k+ bikes are excellent riding machines, but I can't help but wonder if the MTBR reviewers are really giving unbiased opinions after either getting paid for the ad space or just getting the pleasure of testing the latest and greatest. Maybe mountain biking is so much damn fun that every bike just makes a reviewer all complementary, kinda like post-coital grin just without the morning after regret.
