looks like a tubular set up to me with a messy glue job.

I would also like to see a slightly lower bb. Do the 29er dropouts compensate for bb height? Does the bb height go to over 15" when 29" wheels are installed?

I rode a Zerode down a staircase to test the claims of better rolling over square edged hits. After trying some FSR bikes and traditional low single pivots on the same stairs I can report that the Zerode is much faster over this type of obstacle. Most bikes feel like you are dragging the brakes when going over square edged bumps. The Zerode had no such feeling and just picked up a lot of speed. To me the gearbox is a side benefit. The real story is how this fast this bike rolls over the rough stuff.

I still don't understand why no one is running apex road rear derailleurs. They are actually made to work on road cassettes too.

That tape is usually called "waterproof electrical tape." It is really cool stuff. It is made from a slow rebound rubber compound so it keeps everything really quiet.

Any word on if the shock runs significantly hotter with the white coating?

Is that a prototype specialized tire I spy? Looks a bit like the old adrenaline tire, which is not a bad thing.

My guess on the two valves is that Mark has a tubeless DH tire that is coupled with a tubular road tire, or something like it, that is inflated in the valley of the rim to work as an internal bead lock to prevent burping or blowing a bead off the rim. A second benefit to this setup would be some ding protection for the rim.

I like the hand motions Anka is making here. I think she is about to say, "I was... inverted."
