Welcome to the inaugural Riding Feels Good Fall Test Session! RFG will now be conducting fall, spring and summer test sessions, each honing in on a different category of bikes.

There is little debate that Giant Bicycles, touted as the largest manufactures of bikes in the world, was early in their adoption of the 27.5” wheel size. Despite this ‘all in’ approach to 27.5” the Reign, along with their full-blown DH bike the Glory, remained the last holdouts to the new wheel size – that is until this year. Fresh

KHS take a decidedly conservative approach to their bikes, typically laying low, playing things on the safe side, without a flashy pro team, and rarely targeting higher price points. While many frames are hitting the market now without build options below $5,000, KHS has very few bikes that even clear that mark. While this perhaps doesn’t make KHS the most

Disclaimer: While Santa Cruz does not have specific model years for their bikes, there are some small changes to the Bronson that will be available in 2015 versus the bike we acquired for this test. Though we declined to review a plethora of 2014 bikes for this test in order to focus on 2015 models, since Santa Cruz does not
