Yeah i think i remember them running FOX seatposts, but i distinctly remember them running reverbs when they switched from SRAM. Though FOX didn't have a dropper at the time. Now that Shimano has a dropper post as well, who gives you the post if you ... more »

Only if it had the seal head replaced with a Rock Shox one (the big, black nut instead of the integrated seal housing like it's on the Transfer) and had the Rock Shox logos applied to the top of the slider. http://www.pinkbike.com/news/fox-transfer-dropper-seat-post-review-2016.html ... more »

https://www.instagram.com/p/BPdjWEvBW6l/ I find it so funny that the Syndicate still runs reverbs even though there's a fox post out there and a ton of much less direct competitors to the Shimano and Fox pairing... Have they ever run anything other than ... more »

Almost all sports are like that. At least most winter sports as far as i know. The problem with this is that the women's DH pool is much smaller than men's and it'd be questionable if there would eb enough coverage and the like. Also, i was saying that ... more »

BTW, i think it was mentioned that FIS skiing has more races per year than UCI MTB DH and that DH could have more races as well. An important part of the FIS ski season is that you have 4 disciplines (well, 5 with the combination, kinda) and the overall ... more »

Kids like these give Monster the money that enables them to sponsor their athletes who then do what they were born to do. Still like Red Bull for only giving the clothing to their sponsored athletes, you actually do know that you are in the company of ... more »

They might be developing a chassis, but that doesn't mean they have a chassis ready to perform at world cups. Maybe they are just covering their asses and putting their dampers and springs into Xfusion's chassis for the time being. Them saying they have ... more »

His Instagram post confirming he is moving off Scott has been posted here. Look for Brendog giving him the cheers with a cup of tea in their pits.

Race face (and Easton) is now owned by Fox Shox, which is usually paired with Shimano. So you often have a conflict of interest here, since Shimano also makes bars, stems, cranks, wheels, etc.

Wouldn't you want to have a team you're sponsoring running all of your kit that you make? Considering you can buy arandom frame and EVERYTHING else, bar tires and the seat, from Sram. And a fork fender.

http://www.pinkbike.com/news/box-one-derailleur-shifter-first-ride-2016.html The video thumbnail in the middle of the article shows you how the current shifter from BOX looks on the underside. It's similar to the previous prototypes. And it has a narrow ... more »

A Box shifter has two bolts on the underside of the lever, not a single large bolt, like in the picture and like Sram uses.

The bottom lever most definitelly looks like a Sram X01 lever.

The DH squad seems to be on Formula... EDIT: it does seem weird to me that a team like SPecialized factory racing (effectively) would go with such a hardware setup...

Because you never move your pedals while riding?

Of course. And i saw Sram's Instagram post about proving can't wrong just a day or two before posting. Incidentally i remembered Jared because of his Instagram post... The irony.

Granted, the general suspension geometry (slider and link positions and lengths and all) might well be very similar to the SB6, but i'd say there were some tweaks done, at least to get more travel (though a longer chainstay would help here as well). ... more »
