Man, looking at this picture made my gut tighten up. That remains the biggest thing I've done on a mountain bike, the crowd of seasoned pros sitting there scared in first practice told the whole story.

This is possibly the wrongest shit a human has ever said. Women's dh is a joke, pure and simple. Not only that, women's racing has held the whole sport back from being something interesting and progressive that people would want to watch. For example, ... more ยป

Clicked quote on the wrong post, stupid tiny phone. As far as me being "Jerk of the Year", keep in mind we're only two weeks in so it's a bit early to declare a winner, but I'll accept the nomination.

This is the first time in a while that I've been surprised by how expensive something wasn't. Let's hope it becomes a trend.

For $2400, a wheelset should have the best everything money could buy, and be delivered to your house by Monk, who then installs them for you and rebuilds your bike while he's at it. Then when he's done, he should hand you a check for the $1000 they owe you. $250 for a rim replacement program? I'm guessing that pretty much covers Reynold's cost on two new rims.

$2400 for a wheelset built with DT 240's? Not including the 36pt Star Ratchet? It's a bold strategy Cotton, let's see if it pays off.

I was wondering about the Horst Link patent status, when I looked up the design date (1980), I suddenly felt very old. I wasn't saying it's a bad design or these will be bad bikes. In fact, I know it is the opinion of many well informed suspension engineers that horst link is still the best design. Just thought it was funny too see them talking about it like it's something new, although you can say that about 99% of mtb marketing.

Remember when 800 dollars was as much money as you could spend on a wheelset? Way way back in 2009 or so. $850 for this, are you kidding me? I think because ENVEs cost the GDP of a small central american country, everyone thinks they can price their wheels in multiples of 1000 now. 800 dollars still buys you a handbuilt wheelset with Hadley/King/ or DT hubs, DT champion spokes, and whatever rim you feel like. And those wheels will be better than absolutely anything else on the market, in pretty much every way. 5 years ago this wheelset would have been 400 dollars, and people wouldn't have bought it then either. Nice try.

For sure you can expect a little more carnage and raggedness at worlds, today it just bit a few more than usual out of the contenders. I was right there with you hoping Neko would hold on to it. Personally I think the #1 plate means a lot more than the rainbow jersey. Champions should be crowned based on a series, not one roll of the dice.

Some interesting stuff happened, but I agree with JCL that it wasn't the best race to watch. Neko's chain, Greg, Danny and Sam's crashes, Bryceland's ankle, just lots of bad luck going around. Not to say Gee didn't deserve it, but his run wasn't that great either with that big bobble. Usually you need perfection to win worlds.
