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

Ah ha, Eagle vs. Shark. I get it now. Nice work OneUp.

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?

Are those "plus-size" bikes?

"11 dropped chains on narrow/wide setups" Vital MTB keeps it trill.

That first action shot is amazing.

Seems like the inclusion of a video sample of your new video technology would make sense for a press release, no?

What kind of bashguard is that?

Right? I'm not seeing any way to mount a guide. What I'm also not seeing is any of their team riders riding without, so.....
Beautiful bike. Great details otherwise. I like that they've gone with a 190x51 shock instead of the increasingly common 184x44, this gives you wayyyy more options for shocks.

But winning general practice has no correlation with winning the race (see Ben Reid, John Kircaldie, Brendawg, etc.), unless you're Remi Thirion.
...nor does winning the internet (or internets) (see Wyn Masters, Bernard Kerr, Phil Atwill, etc.).

Keep in mind that this was made for a VERY general audience - so, yeah, some of the narration isn't 100% correct. But you get the idea. My favorite bit is the distinction between the inner and outer suspension forks, haha.

She was a great bike!
How many miles do you have on that ring?
It may be that most chainring reviews are "full of all kinds of technical data, CAD drawings, friction coefficients, etc." but reviews should have some kind of qualifying information like that, not simply be "it worked, it's great."
Having pretty extensively tested N/W rings over the last year or so, I can tell you they all seems sensitive to wear to varying degrees. Pretty much any of them will work flawlessly at first - thus the reason you might see a sponsored athlete able to tackle a few runs down Rampage guideless. However, it's rare you'll any elite racers go without a guide in competition - even those with full factory support.
I mean, I'll happily sell anyone a chain-retaining style ring, and for some people that performance is good enough. But, it's about time an MTB site did a real test of these products' performance and durability. I think you'll find their (rings only) long-term performance still falls short of a really basic upper-only chainguide - a product that's cheap, doesn't really "wear out", weighs as little as 40g, and doesn't introduce friction to the system (which interestingly is cited as a "con" for chainguides, but never mentioned in regards to rings).
Sorry, rant over, haha. Killing time in the passenger seat on the long drive to Sea Beaver.

Nico, the Scott rider, and the Rocky dude slayed it. I was expecting someone to get clotheslined by that tree!

Correct, but the all black Lev Ti was considerably more expensive. The cheaper Lev DX still has a natural gold telescoping portion - looks dated. I was trying to avoid having black, Kashima, and natural gold on the uppy-downy parts.
