I can't even tell if you're being serious?

The final sentence calls out the pricing. Yes, it's expensive. So are the hours of CNC time it takes to make that incredible cassette so it doesn't weigh five pounds, the team of engineers it took to come up the improvements, and on and on. The price will no doubt improve as...more

Could be it just didn't arrive in time, stuck in customs, etc.

Looks like he dug these brakes out from his Lapierre days, I can't imagine Sram would ship out a set of X0 Trails these days.

If improvements are killing DH, than yes, otherwise I don't get the point.
I'm really not pro UCI, but people have been complaining for years now and demanding a separate organisation for DH, but nothing has happened, and it's most likely that nothing will happen.
The tracks have been getting a LOT better and some of the new regularities aren't all that bad. DH will rocket upwards in popularity if and when some big sponsors get into the sport and I think we're on a pretty good path for that. And once that happened the UCI can't really f*ck up much anymore.

Well, with the exception of Leogang and possibly Lenzerheide they're all pretty great I think. It's a big improvement compared to 2-3 years ago.

We hear your feedback on the q-factor. Some riders prefer the shorter stock spindles for better clearance in tight trail conditions, while others prefer the longer spindles for stability and foot clearance from the cranks. We now offer a separate long spindle kit for...more

I rode the high-end model for a few days this summer and really liked it. I felt very comfortable on it right away and it blew my mind how well it pedals. It's very responding, but gets a bit nervous at high speeds, with that I agree. I didn't think it was too bad for a trail bike, though. On some hits I also felt like the shock extends very fast for the first few centimeters and then slows down, but this was very rare.
As a trail bike it's pretty spot on, if you're looking for something to smash the uphills and still get down every trail with a grin on your face.
