any chance Gwin is going back to MX instead of DH?

i think they normally leave that sorta color arrangement as a roadside memorial to a cyclist who succumbed to a vehicular accident while out riding. But for any other reason, that person must have succumbed to poor judgement.... ew.

dont forgot, SC sold-out to Pon Holdings BV, who probably has close to half a billion dollars in revenues for 2015 (based on projections from the 2012 earnings). I reckon they have deep enough pockets, certainly deeper than Intense/SRAM.

maybe gwin thinks he was always a Young Talent...

^This! Look at Manon Carpenter: one of her dayIntheLifeOfVids indicates she sees a pyschologist, which I'm assuming to mean she gets as much professional help with her mental preparedness as she does with her physical conditioning. There's only so much

because his contract will allow it? and late in what game? its end of season and end of contract. Contract implies mutual agreement, so if he leaves when out of contract, how he is being offensive to anyone but you and others who irrelevantly think its ... more »

Was really surprised to hear the Spesh team manager leaving. i thought eric carter was in for the long haul taking over from Sam heimahl? Gwin seems disinterested, and I just dont see the same team dynamic between him and Troy as there was with Troy ... more »

Needles to YT or SRAM/TLD? Cam to Scott (did they finally ditch Fairclough?) or Mondraker? Nick Beer to Giant? Kiwi to Sunn??

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 »

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 »

interesting theory, but doesn't make sense as Yeti has a long history of supporting up and coming riders. They've never been afraid of losing their top dog.

iXS team sponsorship announcement mentioned Morgane Charre riding for Evil??! She was riding for MS Mondraker last year, and her FB still mentions the same. Did iXS gaffe it, or was that a major typo? EDIT! GAH! i see iceman posted it already!

i can see TLD didnt have overall control of the design of the CRC kit. sad. Spesh rags look hot, Madison easily the best though. Will see how it looks with the athletes all clad in it.

if it is Gwin to $pe$h, then the question about whether Hill left or was 'encouraged' is a different story. Or potentially can be rather
