Pretty confident for race day... I have never had 100% chain retention with SRAM or Shimano setups using clutch derailleurs with the "correct" 1x chainrings. Granted, I've only lost the chain maybe once or twice without a top guide, but that's too many times. Martin Maes might agree. It probably depends quite a bit on suspension design?

Very nice! I am a fan of the svelte XC saddle although after a mild get-off yesterday when i took the nose of my SLR in my inner thigh I was reminded you definitely pay to play. Cool bike!

People are stoked on it because Gwin didn't give up once he flatted. He continued to push as if he were still racing for something knowing that his chances of getting any points were very low. If he had throttled back and cruised like most racers would/do, no one would care. His determination...more

I heart Gooseburry. And Nino shreds, no qualifying "for an XC guy" necessary. Would love to go ride optional lines down there with him anytime!

I want to like this rad video but I am boycotting anything using the tired phrase "young gun(s)"

I am excited to see what Fox has coming after a couple years of lack-luster efforts. They have struggled a little being on top of the heap and Rock Shox is really pressuring them. Fox won't sleep for long.

I just got the scoop on these from ENVE last week during a visit... they ARE new. New arch profiles with tall/straight sidewalls, new widths, new naming system – 90/10 relates to the use if I understood correctly... 90% DH, 10% uphill or similar. So ... more »

I love this. Of COURSE it's niche, it's expensive and for a lot of folks it's probably unnecessary. But knowing it's out there is pretty damned cool. It's a great solution and a nice re-purposing of parts to create a custom solution.

You are sadly misinformed. Any DT Swiss hub, I9 hubs, newer Deemaxes, Reynolds hubs, newer Easton hubs--my list is far from definitive--all XD compatible.
