i th ink the latest vid is more of a bump flip than this initial one. here is already in forward rotation before he hits the sign, but in the latest vid, he really hits that fence before starting the rotation.

is that a hans dampf? Yellow labelling on that schwalbe suggests a new year model, or a new tyre, or a new hans dampf? Doesn't look at all like the nob pattern of the HDs i'm familiar with. I don't see those weirdly turned nobs. Looks like they've married the pattern of the new Nobby Nics with the sideknobs of the Magic Mary. the side knobs on the new nobby nic are a bit strange.

love the scenery, love his riding more, but utterly despise the blatant product pushing. reminds me of those rubbish movies were product placement is shoved front and center at every opportunity as opposed to telling a good story.

Sorge's ride i might agree on, but straits and zinks.. sorry, still not as exciting. As close to one trick scores as they come.

I hope Lacondeguy crushes it this year. I dont understand why he hasn't won in previous years. He might not have that 'one trick', but he sure as hell throws down a helluva show top to bottom. Everyone that's won recently seemed to have that 'one trick' that seems to rake in all the points. Maybe i dont understand the points system,but outside of that 'one trick', their runs are relatively indistinct from other runs. Andreu throws down hard and mixes it up all over the place. i hope its his year. The dude deserves it.

not sure either, but if i had to take a stab at his assertion, then i'd say that's the day we start adding all things electronic to what was meant to be a purely mechanical+hydraulic system. motors and electronic shifting? seriously? wtf.

yes, that was my first guess: they are non-production wheels, but i was hoping it was an existing retail product. Not amped for buying new rims just to fit what's essentially an inner tube

i already had a look at the Deemax range, and the ultimate has a stated internal rim width of 21mm. I'm asking about Hill's specific rims, because the Procore system says the internal rim width must be at least 23mm. If it works in a 21mm rim, i'd be pretty stoked as I'm deadkeen on trying the Procore system.

are those custom 650b Deemax Ultimates? Rim width? Mavic website doesn't indicate that they have 650b Ultimates available.

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.

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?
