Most well balanced XC-W I’ve ever had.   

  • Stock suspension is great 
  • Feels stable at speed and doesn’t feel like it’s a stink bug 
  • Gives me confidence sine the front wheel doesn’t get deflected all of the place 
  • Great in the really rocky nasty terrain - stays planted as well as any bike I’ve been on 


Power delivery is great 

  • Updated maps make this bike start SO MUCH BETTER than my 2019.  It’s nearly as good as a carb bike.  Just a touch off that when cold. 
  • So snappy and so much power - I’m going back to the gray throttle cam on this bike to soften it up 
  • Didn’t feel the need to play with the power valve on this one.  She’s a go'er 


If you have a 2019 TPI, don’t ride one of these unless you are willing to sell your bike.   

  • If you're 2019 runs great (many do) and you are happy with it, don’t worry about this bike.  Turn off the podcast now and go back to your normal life 
  • If you are having issues with the 2019, this is for you.  I like my 2020 so much better than my 2019.  Little things all add up on it.
