#!markdown The problem with shootout style reviews is that they give the impression that one bike is better than another, and that's an oversimplification. I might like one bike for the way I ride but that doesn't mean it'll be your favourite. It's the same reason why we don't use a ratings system. We used to, but then readers are likely to just look at how many stars/chainrings/burrito toppings we give a product, and not read the review. Of course it's useful to compare, though, and we are noting how bikes ride next to each other and will sprinkle reviews with those notes when relevant.
