No problems with the coil shock at the moment, one friend broke 2 in a Specialized enduro in the past year, but this year none. The air shock is other thing, I dont know any that didnt break in less than 4 months, one of them break allmost every ride

I would wait for a month review, I own a coil 36 for 2 months now (Specialized 29 coil) and the black coat in both stanchions is gone. A friend of mine (specialized mechanic) has the air 36, and he broke it every month at least once. I spoke with a "official" rider and he told me he...more

^^^ True pro move. Looks like he got lost or didn't know what was over that roller- he hit the eject button immediately...

Track looks fine. They knew Leogang was on the schedule since last year- maybe instead of complaining the riders should practice pedaling hard?

Last year the riders complained about the man-made rock gardens, saying they were too easy in the dry, and pretty much a gamble in the wet. Well, it looks like the organisers listened to them and removed the rock gardens.
Careful what you wish for...

look to the lower/right of the wheel there is some smooth rubbery/foamy looking thing in addition to the tire (which is wrapped on the right crank arm)

Sadly I think this guy is speaking the truth. I've played with a lot of DAQ on bikes... Other than being able to replicate DH runs on test machines (in a lab) I'm not sure how much tuning info they are gaining. Generally you end up staring at the screen and go 'wow that's a lot of wiggly lines'.


Like guy said- it's mostly to intimidate the other teams.

Turman- can you comment on rear end stiffness? Also looks like long dropper posts (125mm or more) are a no-go, is that the case?

you can slam it lower- the hose on the stealth routed posts usually hits stuff before the actual post is bottomed in the frame. She looks pretty short so probably wants the shortest seatpost possible.

it does pump a little more oil- the piggy back shocks have a 12.7 (1/2") shaft where the inline shocks have a 10mm shaft. Bigger shaft = more oil displaced.

changing wheel size every few years is not causing mtb racing costs to spiral out of control. I think if Payet could ride a 32" wheeled bike faster than everyone else- he'd be stupid not to.
