I'm curious to see Fox's comments on the bolt on axle (mo stiffer? Everything old is new again?) and progressive & negative springs.

Almost 10 years of riding all black bikes is getting old for me. My latest bike is black, and if they had a different color, I would have jumped on it. Different strokes for different folks.

Specialized invested in the latest technology coolaid bath. Looks like it's working.

I would love some geo numbers. I love Specialized geo, notably the short stays. And that bendy seat tube points towards shorties! 16.5?

No kidding. These racers have my full respect.

And as good as the Enduro format looks, it seems almost like DH racing - on trail bikes - with a bunch a fatigue piled on top. Then throw in minimal practice rounds... Enduro roulette.

F'yeah to Cedric and friends for staying so calm in a life & death situation! Truly life saving. Cedric owes you guys a beer (or three)!!!!

And thanks for showing this video with tips on what to do, as it is not as uncommon as we think.

I took a handlebar to the groin, on a single speed, going uphill, and the bar had an ODI locking grip and end cap on. It went in 6cm, the MRI showed it 1cm short of the femoral artery. I got lucky compared to Cedric.

Sh!t happens. Stay safe & know what to do & have fun!

Santa Cruz is the right place for the North American premiere for obvious reasons.

This movie I am looking forward to, as staying on top of ones game is hard enough, staying on top of the World Cup's game for so many years is truly remarkable and rare. An inspiration.

Thanks for the tire review.

Tires are the component most finicky to define based on riding style, terrain & bike set-up. But they are that most important glue that sticks us to the trail.

More please.

Would love to see trail version of that tire pattern.
