Just because a company sells lots of bikes, doesn't mean their marketing budget is unlimited, especially for a niche discipline such as downhill. To quote Eric Carter himself; "I know Specialized is currently in the process of seeing what the program ... more »

Not sure if these are functioning forks. Notice that the gold writing on the stanchion is catching the light on the upper edges. This would suggest to me that the writing has a thickness and the surface isn't smooth, like it is vinyl stuck on. The lack ... more »

Probably the same reason they axed a team manager who took them to their best season to date. Having read the EC interview on PB it seems that a management change has led to a shake up of their downhill racing program and probably some cost cutting. ... more »

Weren't Ragot and Macdonald on the Mondraker team together. Ragot to Trek then? edit - just noticed sspomer's post above. I definitely agree. Ragot is still one of the fastest ladies in the world despite her hints at retiring.

Thanks for clearing that up guys...still learning here :-) It just shows the natural ability to be able to ride such a wild, fast line and make decisions on the fly. This whole event blows my mind!

0:48s I'm sure having a guy walking next to the lip of a jump waving his arms around and hollering like a lunatic really helps with concentration.

Reading between the lines, I guess that means Blenki is leaving Lapierre?

I don't think these filling with mud is a big problem, but muddy water will get in between the carbon elements, either during a ride or when washing the bike. I wonder how quiet they will be with a grinding paste of dirt in there. I wouldn't want to remove my shock and remove/clean a stack of 40 or so 'elements' every time i wash my bike.

I can't see Gwin leaving Specialized having not achieved any significant victories (by his standards I mean - I know a World Cup win isn't to be taken lightly). Also they have just launched the new bike and he must have had input into it's development. ... more »

I agree I can't see Hill leaving CRC. At this point in his career when he has rediscovered his form, it seems crazy to switch teams and put it all at risk. I'm sure that one of the Specialized guys will go (having to run both Rockshox and Fox can't have ... more »

Like the idea but the SC logo on the downtube looks a bit shit.

Interesting stuff, thanks for the link! Seems the brake carrier was there out of necessity to make the system function. One thing the graphs do confirm is that it pedalled like s**t., especially weighing in at around 45lbs :-)
