Good angles + good suspension = fast. Fast + Ardent front tire = certain death.

Let me get this right, you are worried about being eco friendly in regards to a chainring, when attached to that you have rubber manufacturing from overseas, metal manufacturing from numerous countries, and probably around six pounds of carbon fiber in the frame? How many DH chainrings do you wear out a year? And which body of water is strait aluminum from? The Strait of Gibraltar? The Strait of Magellan?

Pretty awesome bottom out bumper there. Looks like a mini-donut.

Sspomer, did Marcelo say why he runs 172.5 cranks? Super odd size for dh, considering 95% of people are probably on 165mm, then some holdouts on 170mm.

Who is the factory rider on Specialized that is using the Maxxis Minion and not a Butcher/Purgatory/Slaughter? I'm assuming it is a top end Spesh rider with the frame, wheels, drivetrain...

Really? It is so bad to be able to use standard wheel/driver body if you want? And at a lower price? I see, I see, you said 'triggers', which means you mush shift with both hands. That must be so difficult, I know I'd lose my mind as well if I still had to use both thumbs to shift.

Which frames did you crack? I think bikes are pretty good these days compared to just a decade ago.

Bruni probably had the lowest average race time if that makes you less upset.

That Kidwoo character seems dumber than a bag of hammers, so the fact that he crashed hard and can still type give that test/helmet a lot of street cred.
