Does anyone else love that this winning bike is aluminum and a GT? It's like underdog + underdog = Hong Kong Phooey!

That is such a great visual of DH mountain bike geometry. The bike is almost neutral over that rock.

Mechanical? Reliability? Sign me up! I have a 10 year old Gravity Dropper that works flawlessly, and I've ridden it for the last 9 years.

Amazing those Ikon tires can hold up to the speed Duncan was putting down. We set a CHP (yes. The CHP!) speed trap on 3rd Divide, and Duncan was the fastest, radar had him at 40 MPH!

We had the CHP give him a ticket on the podium...

100mm travel weenie 29er over an aggro hardtail with a dropper? Whaa...? Smoking the pipe must still be in. Ha! The demise of the hardtail has been on these lists every year since 1993, and the hardtail has to be put back on the list in every year into the future as they will always rip!

Adding: Is the seatpost still able to lock into low or high positions during failure (on a ride). This overlooked "feature" is a ride saver - as the seatpost will fail (unless it is a Gravity Dropper). Usable functionality, when dead, saved my season goal event - of which I had trained for months and traveled to get to.

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame...more

Attention bike marketers: I do not watch burm slashing, edge of the world, drony, triple can-can bar hump videos. They are all the same; boring. But if Kurt is in a video, I watch. I watch because his videos are not "let's make a video like the other guy" videos, I watch because Kurt brings the every-rider flavor of fun and riding to videos. He makes me want to get together with my hooligan buds and ride! Get this man a ride!
