About MeMy name is Greg Heil, and I am the Editor in Chief for Singletracks.com. I've been mountain biking seriously since 2005, and I love to travel and ride new trails. My travels have taken me across the United States multiple times. To date (April 2017), I have ridden well over 650 different trail systems in 20 different US states and 6 foreign countries, and am adding more singletrack to my trail resume every year! I enjoy all types of mountain biking, from ultra endurance cross country all the way up to chair lift-accessed downhill runs.
If you want to connect with me, please follow me on Instagram or "like" my page on Facebook.

This article is so much more than a review--it's a ripping away of the facade constructed by larger-than-life Instagram photos. Of course I'm a bit of an Insta fan boi myself, but as with any tool, it's all in how you use it.
Is it just me, or was that track way shorter than most of the world cup tracks?
The only hub I've ever destroyed personally was a Bontrager hub. This was about 4 years ago so I couldn't possibly make any comparisons to their hub quality today, but I've never destroyed...
Sounds like I would get on well with this bike. Great review! Also, that Lord of the Squirrels Trail -- Wander Lust in 3, 2, 1...
Having done a long term review of the previous gen Trigger, it sounds like they made a bunch of positive changes here! Would love to give this one a go someday.
Always be passing!! Seriously, you probably passed like 500 people! Also, what Aaron said about the 38T--nuts!!
