Bikes are expensive. And there are a zillion different bikes out there. So this week, reviewers Luke Koppa, Jonathan Ellsworth, Dylan Wood, and David Golay discuss our new BLISTER Brand Guide to Mountain Bikes; why we saw a need for it; the trends and takeaways we’ve seen in the process of building it; and the revolutionary new Badonkadonk bike.

See all of our MTB Brand Guides (many more coming soon)

  1. This is AWESOME! I really love this concept.

    I am in the market to replace my 2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude, because, while I love it, it is just too much bike for me. I know I am carrying extra weight uphill to get so much travel, and so much downhill ability. I’d rather have a lighter, more agile bike, because at 55, I need every advantage possible to keep up to the young tarts I ride with. Already, your Santa Cruz guide has me thinking of models I hadn’t considered previously. I look forward to more of your Brand Guides to help decide between so many options.
