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.

Why does this story remain in pole position on the newest story list? the Newest is actually the hope crank story by a whole day.

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.

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.
