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.

In all seriousness, E13 is a fantastic company. I'd love to try those tires!

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.

Yup, usually either in the parking lot talking about riding or on the side of the trail fixing punctures.....

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 love Shimano products, but damn, how can a company with $3 billion in sales put out a press release with grainy 2d images of forthcoming products?

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.
