Vital MTB Trail Pistol Review

The bike says "I like goin’ fast" on the top tube and, you guessed it, it does... Those willing to quickly choose and commit to rowdy lines are rewarded with the confidence and stability of quality suspension design and great geometry... We were left strong believers in the Trail Pistol. An incredibly capable bike that rides fast and wild, the Pistol is not for the weak at heart... The Trail Pistol proved that it doesn’t run off scared when the fighting starts. As one tester replied with the longer wheelbase, “It feels like you can get away with anything.”

This bike was faster than any bike I’ve ever ridden... I was unsuccessful in pushing the Trail Pistol to its full potential. I would not hesitate taking this bike on world class technical epics with sustained punishment like the Whole Enchilada.

Member Review: Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol

I hate this bike. I hate how an aluminum, slack-ass trail carver puts my old carbon 29er to shame. I hate how this steed looks like it would take a country mile to turn, but pushes through switchbacks more ferociously than I am comfortable with at times. I hate a rear suspension design that lets me pedal faster up climbs than I ever have before. I hate how my face hurts after two hours of smiling like a one year old after their first taste of cake. I hate how line choice is pretty much out the window; it's all just point and shoot from here on out. I hate this bike- and you can't go buy one, because I don't want my ass kicked by everyone else shredding a Made-in-the-USA, 29er death machine

So who is the Trail Pistol for? I think anyone who wants a well-built, solid, aluminum, aggressive 29er with great versatility would be pleased.

Member Review: Guerrilla Gravity Trail Pistol Review

Given the previous bikes from GG I knew it would descend well... It's super agile, very poppy, and small bump compliance is very good... It climbs incredibly. The best climbing bike I've ever owned... I can stand and sprint and not feel like the suspension is sucking my energy away. Despite the 30# weight I've been PR'ing a bunch of climbs without trying very hard... I think it would feel like an XC bike while climbing if you threw a pair of light wheels on there with fast rolling tires, especially with the steep seat tube.
