Is it the video source (so the camera) or is it the encoding for the web? The picture is SO blocky in dark areas, it's like a camo. Either there is way too much noise (camera) or too much compression for the stream.

That would be logical, them running FOX suspension and all.

This one is a bit more serious... BTW, a works team in motorsport means an official factory team. Audi's Le Mans effort was a factory effort, but trackside operation was handled by the Joest racing team in an official manner. Same goes for Toyota and ... more »

Ah, the road bike training pic. Missed that one, sorry. My mistake, i went on a needless rant there.

Pedro is saying that the yesterday's photo and the photo from 4 days ago have the same sponsors. We were talking that today's (fresh) photo doesn't have those sponsors. From Pedro's post i kind of got the vibe, that the fact that yesterday's photo and ... more »

Wai. The fact that the last few photos, up to yesterday, had the same sponsors, that aren't featured in today's photo, is the reason for you to be sure, he is NOT moving to a different team and not a reason, tat he IS moving to a different team? How?? ... more »

But not today. Granted, there's no bike in the picture. And he didn't tag any clothing or equipment sponsors (Crank Brothers, which was tagged yesterday). Might be a sign of things to come, might be nothing. Brendog for example posted his Scott road ... more »

Hardly, there have been many long-standing rumours covered in this.

Like i said, Gwin is a Red Bull athlete and was famously driving the FOX Ford Raptor a few seasons back. If it makes any sense.

It has been said before that Scott will not continue with Claudio/Velosolutions.

Well in that vein, Curtis Keene, Hanna Barnes and Jared Graves are either going (back) to Yeti, or Ritchie and Kelly are also going to Specialized. They also all hang out together.

As per NSMB, size is just a number to Push, so they can easily make a metric shock if needed. And it will be available for the new Patrol.

If you look at the pistons, the compression side (the one that is raised in the picture and is thus covered by the compression shim stack) has three parts (with rebound ports inbetween them). On each part, there are two ports in the old piston and only one, larger port in the new one. You can also see around the rebound ports that the old design just has a flat surface and a hole drilled through the plate, while the new design has a ramped surface, which is the part that lowers turbulence through the ports, raising efficiency.

Nothing says the switch won't work anymore, also dual compression circuits and a switch are clearly visible. The new piston just optimises the current design, but doesn't change the concept. Same goes for the reservoir.

Agree with all of it, it's just that it's fascinating that an enduro bike has to pedal realtivelly well to get to the top, be light enough, yet still hold up to the abuse that is thrown at it. It's the delicate balancing act that is so awesome to me ... more »
