Looks sic, just don't get all the cover ups, really is it that big a difference, is this MTB or America"s cup , seriously OTT, Fox 36, Nomad, Regin, all shared and stoke is flying, this imo just pisses people off..

A good coach, knows the right things to say at the right time and how much to each rider, they all respond differently especially once they are or have been at the top like Gwin. Too much info for a seasoned pro can mess the mind rather than keep it uncluttered . Troy needed different motivation, obviously EC did his job as Gwins head was in the game and Troy had a great result too. Hard to get much better, not F1 where ya get a procession 1,2 finish either.

By far the best video shown of Gwin as a person, not sure if he's matured, had the humility or has grown it, but more of this and respect for World Champs event instead of dissing it and he will have a new fan in me, I was impressed, EC is and always has been class on and off the bike too, very good signing by Specialised.

Interesting. Please bring back 20mm so over 15mm hubs! While good review and I found this on the Metric from XF tested recently, apologies if I have missed it while reading, but I it'll findings were lacking mid-stroke support so increased spring rate which provided 18% sag? This will lead to a fork thats more harsh off the top, why not over the time tested use the volume spacer kit to fine tune the progressiveness of said fork run proper sag then retest, just adding more air is at best these days is misleading to the forks true abilities especially when they provide them, same with XF running less sag and more compression is a Fox trait as is the above if you have been riding CTD since it was introduced! Just pointing this out!
I would have liked to see Magura provide 20mm lower options and more travel, 150mm seems a little off specc of market especially with internal ability to change travel to suit the many bikes available. The market is changing rapidly year to year now and companies some big one Ive mentioned and those on the sides will miss and kiss they're opt unites good bye if they don't listen, Pike, XF, BOS, DVO coming and others pushing the aggressive end of dampening as it should be, instead of OEM mass specc linear offerings are going to relegated to the dung heap pretty quick, it's already happened in the 34/Pike battle which was a complete routing!

XF have great mid-stroke once set correctly, forget the rec PSI, they are way off, best to work with sag percentage, if you work from either spectrum, using more compression and less spring rate you will end up with less mid stroke support, Id add 5psi at a time and back off the compression and re test, I run my Vengeance @ 25% sag and its awesome very little LSC and no HSC and I have no mid-stroke issues at all, unlike Fox, recently tested a 2014 34, not even close to its performance, the Metric should be better again.
but I did a similar thing to this review dropped spring rate and added lots of compression, this is not needed with correct sag and rebound, because each adjustment actually makes quite a difference it can be hard to get right after being used to Fox and Rockshox products over the years, you have to unlearn the bad habits re learn and then you will hit the sweet spot and be impressed by its mid-stroke, soft off the top and control on big hits!

Just want to add re the weight comment I made, that was just a pick up test comparison with my own rig. static weight is relative, I mention it so they're was no bias or bs about my point of view, and this clarification is just so people don't get hung up on that aspect, how it rides is the important part and none of us know that and i can tell you you'd be far off, Rob does not ride crap stuff, its an amazing achievement in my opinion fwiw to design and build this level of bike, this is not a production model either so what Rob learns from this model can only get better if he ever got funded to take this into production, I wish him well and it would be one heck of a project to be involved with, but needs someone who is about passion about creating change in an industry of sameness and marketing, not money! to bring it to fruition, it would shake the very mtb foundations of over priced mediocracy we get fed every day. Good luck, I hope I'm lucky enough some time to rip a trail or 2 on it wink wink Rob
