Awesome team. I'd imagine working for the Syndicate must be like working for Makita Suzuki while Carmichael was there. Big up Greg

It is a known problem... Enve riders find they tend to pull spokes through the rim due to their high spoke tension. I work at a bike shop that sees enve wheels all the time. And before you go hating on carbon or Enve, Minnaar told me himself that while running WTB wheels prior to the Syndicate picking Enve up as a sponsor he was going through up to 25-30 rims in a single race weekend. Now with Enve that figure is down to 8-10

It's known. A little birdy told me. Mayhap THAT is just a sticker, but Josh's issue was not "Loose" spokes. I remember visiting with Doug Fresh at a Notthstar national and having...more

It's like a garden shed version of a izimu or 224

That turn (you know the one) 1:46... Had to light up a smoke the first time saw it because I pretty much jizzed in my pants.

Have you ever used a csixx? If you have you'll know it features woven carbon (less susceptible to abrasion damage) rubber on the guide to prevent chain-slapping-plastic noise and kevlar woven into the "taco" part of the bashguard which helps it slide off rocks rather than hook up and stop you dead. It's a better engineered product, and I don't even have to look at the Ethirteen to know this

Csixx is still better. Will bet all my money on that

Head angle too steep, seat angle way to slack, especially for taller riders. No ISCG and no ability to mount a guide, no thru axle. About two years behind Specialized.

Am I the only one who's always thought Sam was faster on his Iron Horse than on the Specialized?

Can someone please explain to me how is it that even in Columbia everyone seems to ride these amazing bikes, but here in South Africa half of us can't even afford an entry level POS

Capricorn, blue stripe signifies Schwalbe's "first ride" developmental rubber program. Only pro's and people with connections have them. Basically think MM but with Maxxis slow reezy compound

So the lightest, most balanced frames with the fastest rolling wheels now just got better suspension, more powerfull brakes and even lighter. Please let all of these equate to a win for Greg. It's been a hell of a long time coming with way too many unlucky 2nd places...

Added a product review for Leatt Adventure Body Vest 1/3/2012 8:45 AM
The Good: Comfortable Not overly restrictive Leatt brace compatible Not too hot Good protection
The Bad: The sizing - I'm 75kg with broad shoulders and tried on the smallest size they had (which is meant for riders between 55 -65kg) and it fit me perfectly. Leatt really need to get a better sizing chart as rider weight isn't good enough especially seeing how completely out their recommended size was. They need to include more specific body sizes such as shoulder width, torso length and arm length (as iXS do). The back protection is of a lower standard than their full body armour (level 1 instead of level 2). Chest plate is too flat and doesn't wrap around the ribs as well as it could.
Surprisingly comfortable, not too hot and fits perfectly with a Leatt. My only gripe is that the back protection is not the same level as the full body vest. Which is something I wanted in particular as I broke my back in 4 places not too long ago. However I figured I'd rather have less than optimum protection knowing I would wear it all year round rather than having the full body vest I could only wear in winter (South African summers are insanely hot). Great product all round.
