Well it was actually Niklas that had such high a placement last year not Robin. But for the most part Robin outpaces Niklas by a small margin. And Robin have qualied 2nd there so I would have him down for a medal if he can ride his best and not have a mechanical.

How can you have a tie for thrid and then a fourth place? Do you guys even race..... With a tie you drop the next place down a peg.

Because before they had 10 travel on shorter shock now they would have 8 on a shorter shock. Seems weird to go to anything besides 9.5x3. I rather have all bikes on the same size shock than save a few grams

How do you stop the tube from expanding all the way out into the tyre wall? Seem like any tube would just expand until it fills up the entire tyre. Looking at the picture the only thing you would need is something to wrap the innertube that isnt elastic.

taldfind: As long as you have a normal tubeless valve you can inflate the outer chamber since the tube etc wont make an airtight seal around your valve.

I can see where the whole bigger wheel thing has come from now, more people getting into a sport that actually isnt that easy so they need some extra help. Maybe a 36er would be what these mtbers need, it would certainly help with rolling over rocks. Or maybe if they spent the time for shaving their legs on technical skills.........

I am always so baffled by marketings ads such as this "yeah we have put slightly bigger wheels on and our rider got his best results ever" ok so the bike means everything then? Not the hours in the gym, on the xc bike, dh bike and all the mental preparation that riders do for racing. All this is nothing compared to putting on new wheels that are barely different from the old.

And he was given a completely redesigned frame also, which had nothing to do with it. It was just the size of the wheels.................


Love the bike, if they have sized it properly one would consider going back to DW suspension again

Whoever thought up this comp last year is officially best guy ever. Thought last year was ridiculous but this year, oh my god. Next year we need some angle trackers on their bikes

Yep, going to be interesting to see what they will bring to the table. Would be sweet if they could make a fork also, so one could have locally made suspension.
