Yea, Brayton's was also the giveaway.

First one couldn't be Fairclough (brake noise that Saints just can't make), 3rd and 4th were pretty loud (and Gee's sounds like it's coming apart as he rides, and the Gambler is rather loud aswell) and Bruni's pretty silent.

Brayton's ohlins suspension was a dead giveaway to be honest.

why the hell does Gee's bike sound like a shopping cart?

At a bit over 6', with rather long legs, and 150 is kind of the "minimum" for me ... but it all depends on the bike, the way you ride, what you ride, height and leg length, ... I'll definitely keep an eye for shops stocking the new Reverb, and maybe even sell my 1month old Stealth, just for the added 20mm.

Yes but the thing is that you can't really find sales on Hope parts while you'll easily find prices with -50% on SRAM/Shimano/RF products, which make them much more competitive price wise.

The product may be extremely good, but I think they went bonkers on the price :/

Added reply in a thread Middle of the road, All around tubeless rim? 11/26/2014 2:09 AM

These are not strictly Tubeless rims, rather tubeless ready rims. Nowadays, most (if not all) rims are tubeless ready providing you put some proper sealing tape. A tubeless rim doesn't need the tape. Few brands have real tubeless rims (Mavic for example),

On a French bike trade show last week (Roc d'Azur), it has been said that Danny Hart wouldn't be with KTM bikes next year.

He was riding a set of MagicMary and Hans Dampf

Oh and the Mavic wheels weren't the regular Crossmax Enduro, no stickers, 24 spokes on the rear ... Still props to the guy !

At last another 60mm stem ! But as much as I like pricy fancy parts ... I can't stretch that far for a stem ... Back to finding a 60mm DM stem (other than the Truvativ)

I love the marsh guard thing, but I prefer the Mucky Nutz one over the marshguard. Roughly the same price, exactly the same function (and having had both, they both work fine), but it comes with reusable straps rather than zip ties. And that is a big improvement.

Added a comment about press release SRAM To Officially License Its Popular X-SYNC™ Technology 1/7/2014 1:27 PM

I don't believe RF/WTC/others will have many problems ... If you compare the rings from SRAM and the RF NW, ok they share the same original idea (which isn't new at all), but the design is massively different. RF teeth are smaller, and pointier while SRAM's are pretty squared and tall. And I believe that should be enough for RF to keep going.
