Not that much, it's all contained in the head. What I would like to see is the proliferation of 34 mm posts. This would increase the bushing diameter and make for a stiffer, longer lasting post. The tube walls could also be thinner, which would then ... more »

Ooooooh, Unior. Hm... Could the Unior team be making a change in a few years?

It actually does look like it... There was an article on Pinkbike stating that the linkage showed no difference to the riders with it being there or not. So they removed it.

It says she is supported by Nukeproof and that she is supported by Maxxis Germany, while the NoTubes deal comes via the German importer or some other store/dealer. There is no obvious connection to the factory Nukeproof team.

Exactly that.

It seems very weird to me that they didn't join the swingarm triangle under the main pivot the the 'dropdown' for the linkage...

It seems very easy to still incorporate some kind of iDrive based on the pivot and BB position. Also, the shock position is very logical based on the picture.

That was the idea as far as i can remember. Full time EWS, selected WC DHs.

You guys really need a better video player, the noise due to image compression makes it look worse than SD even at 1080p image size... EDIT: what about Magura brakes?

Not to me, i am aware of all of this stuff. Just not the fact itself that Astro also makes other frames besides their catalogue line. I didn't give it much thought before that anyway, so in the end it's not much of a surprise, considering their capabilities. ... more »

I think an updated Spectral would include a metric shock...

For example, Kraftstoffs are as well, Solid bikes used their stuff and Mondraker, before they developed the Zero line of bikes (when they first signed Barel). And some other small brands as well (we have a brand in Slovenia that used to sell their frames). ... more »

TBH i always thought they only make catalogue frames only, not custom designs.

Blenki was also on a new shorter travel bike. It might be the already shown sight but it could also be the yet unannounced Range.

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 »
