I'm glad they went with the 208 mm of travel and not the 200 mm that is so easy to bottom out hehe

From my perspective, the name of the game for Hill these past couple seasons has been consistency. This takes tremendous skill and commitment, yet isn't classic Hill styley.

Today showcased his original line choices, and flat out speed just like victories a whole decade ago. BOOSH

good spot there Acadian. didn't see that pic. But it does make me wonder why Brosnan seems to have changed.
Reason i'm asking is that i've made the move to Guides from XO Trails, and my word, these things are brutal. It's not so much the power that has changed, which it hasn't (pretty much the same as XO Trails and Codes), but rather WHEN that power comes on. Its so much earlier than previous SRAM brakes, IMO of course.

nice work eagle eye Capricorn! I looked at all the galleries and saw he was on Guide brakes - but failed to look at the FINALS gallery. that means he switched right before the finals.

according to the Dirt MSA finals gallery (image 44/46), he wasn't. Very clearly XO Trail levers+ Code calipers. Vital's own finals slideshow (Sam Slaughter) shows in slide 11/46 that Brosnan is running XO Trail lever bodies. In that same Dirt slide show, Gwin (29/46) was sporting Guide lever bodies, and Hart (31/46) looks like silver Code/XO -Trail lever bodies. No guides.

funny that both Brosnan and Hill are not using the guides as per previous rounds. Brosnan was also riding the XO Trail lever + Code caliper combo. I wonder if SRAM wants to tell us something about the Guides. VitalMTB?

what dont you like about them? I'm presuming you've ridden them for some period of time before delivering that verdict of yours.

if there are rough edges use very fine grit water sandpaper and sand those rough edges down. Very fine cuts/scratches without raised edges won't do much damage to your seals. Anything wth a raised edge is a problem. Water paper those suckers down and ... more »

not to mention the Penske brains behind the RE:Aktiv regressively valved shock. That portion, added to the ohlins, ERS,etc standard valving could make for more efficient pedalling of downhill bikes on pedally tracks.

The tweel would work better for a mostly consistent road surface, that is for road riding. I' surprised they haven't moved over to a punctureless system yet You never going to please everyone in terms of tweel compliance vs pneumatic pressure, but you ... more »

Scottish rules better than UCI rules...after that crash just having the balls to stand up and bringing your bike to the finish line should award you a deduction of 10secs...Kudos to James!
