While dry everything but the first trial feature it wouldnt be much a problem for most but give it some nice slick mud and rain...........seem to atleast be fairly straight and not to much off camber

Looking at Mayers crash I think the added thickness added a pretty big lever for his neck to swing over. His head just whips back so hard at impact its more scary than just landing on his back. On a ski hill you almost always land on a smooth surface ... more »

Shifting while coasting is a good thing agreed but I dont know about doing it like this though. I've thought about the same solution but having a constant spinning chain seems like it could be a problem. If its reasonably priced I would def try it out ... more »

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.

To bad I ride on rocks.....off course sealant can seal up a hole from a spike but aint much good when there is a 1.5-2cm gash from a rock directly cross the thread

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

finally someone has gotten the message, normal lSC/HSC adjustment on a short travel fork. Now we need them to get the straigt 1.1/8 and 20mm axel message and we have our selves products that make sense
