clearly his front wheel collapsed on landing that huge huck. Vicious outcome. I hope the big man is ok.

the news for the WTS LTD is the introduction of a new Crossmax Quest XL dual ply tire. In nutshell: same rim,different graphics, new tyre.

yep, agreed. Seems they've finally added the last piece to the Guide puzzle, albeit, it would be nice to know what was wrong with the rebadged XO Trail caliper that they used initially. I really hope this doesn't mean we have to get different pads.

we've got the same shitfaced attitude by trail runners riding up local DH trails known and marked for one way (down) traffic. But no. FUs all round from the brightly colored ones. Pity their clothes are the only thing bright bout them...

your rhetorical question is answered in the first line. Are you an engineer with them? Also, how can short term testing of a new design prove anything against a DIN standard that's been field tested for decades now? Your statement about being removed many times and perform well blah blah almost sounds like saying the DIN polygon design has flaws in those areas? How does a patent cost versus using a DIN standard? it adds to the bill.
I personally almost dont care which way Hope went, but it is a curious deviation from what was previously seen, and frankly, I've yet to hear a compelling reason for the change given the benefits of the polygon design. Before you wind yourself up again, i'll say it again: the overall package looks a good product, so its not berating Hope in any way.

disappointed with the spline option. E-thirteen may have beaten Hope to the polygon style axle, but its still a darn good option. Would be interesting to hear their reasons why they ditched the polygon style axle, other than the reason that comes to mind: we wanted something different (patentable). Right. Anyway, nice product.
