First and foremost, Interbike needs to get the hell outta Vegas for all the above reasons. Second, I like pickle juice.

It'll work well for a variety of users, but those with AT LEAST one token will appreciate it most. If you aren't aren't using any tokens currently and still struggling to use full travel, this probably isn't for you.

Keep in mind that it's virtually hollow. In the wide open setting, air is virtually free to transfer between the main chamber and that of the cartridge.

A big time team manager once told me that they were considering using LED lights within the rider's goggles to signal split times being up or down. This was a few years ago. I dunno if it ever happened.

Maybe they have custom decals, but they didn't arrive in time. Maybe you should believe me. They are very much still supporting the Syndicate.

I'll add that I'm running mine with a Monarch with Debonair can - it's quite the ride. To control bottom out I'm using 3 or 4 (can't remember) bottomless rings.

I love this bike. My second day on it was race day at the Moab Ho-down and I put down my best times ever on the courses. Last weekend I rode it in the Enduro Cup in Moab, and now with a couple parts swaps, it's ready to race the Grand Junction Off-road 40-mile backcountry XC race. A week after that race, we're headed to Whistler.

Clarified. Both riders you note have won major races on e*thirteen guides, and at one point or another have helped with the development and testing of e*thirteen products.

"With riders like Aaron Gwin, Sam Hill, Josh Bryceland....you know each product is thoroughly tested before it hits the shelves."

Two of the first three are actually on MRP chainguides.

Hill and the rest of CRC/Paypal, as well as Josh Bryceland, now on MRP. Look for 5-10% improvements in radness.

What about using aftermarket rings with Eagle? Specifically 11-speed direct-mount oval rings.

I used to think motor doping wasn't real and was meant to be a distraction from the fact that traditional doping is still quite rampant. But now? I'm not sure what to think.
