You obviously don't know Ellsworth. Of course it is bad. They said it themselves: "This is the first bike to be built, so testing and further refinement are expected to happen before production." Way to go. Make carbon molds and a bike before you even know wtf it is going to ride like. Maybe that is too harsh. I'm sure they'll redo all the forms and not just tweak the upper link in an effort to make it 'good enough'.

A sub 1000 gram DH tire in the even bigger size of 27.5? I can't wait to see how sturdy the casing is on that, looks like it rolls really well too.

So you won't watch it? No, you will watch it. This might bring mountain biking to more people than many other things have, so what's the harm in trying? Riders have a choice to do it or not, it isn't like they have to do this for world cup points.

Go to the photo of Matt Slaven and see why people suck. So many of those riders murder the local trails and spread out lines for their own benefit. Sucks that he couldn't care that the actual trail is a couple feet to his right. Of all the enduros, Whistler seems awesome. Lots of pedalling, as it should be between sections. Lots of cool descending, but don't make your own tracks everywhere and spread out trails to make highways.

I don't know why it is so crazy that Sam won on flat pedals. Gee won on flat pedals this year. Nobody seemed to make much of a fuss about that. If there was anyone who is a clipped in rider, it is Gee. Smith has run flats, Brook still is for the most part, Peaty and Minnaar were on them for Champery before, Blenki and Bryceland were on flats just a bit ago. Way more of an argument for flats that a rider like Gee, on a pedally track like Cairns, won. Pretty much solidifies my opinion that you're a fool if you think you shouldn't have to ride flat pedals well. Flat pedals make you good, clips might make you faster.

Syndicate using a mid-shock mount chip? Looks like halfway between the 8.5 and 10 modes. Of course the frame could be different as far as the linkage, but there is a lot of space on either side of that bolt.

I'd consider even less travel and maybe drop bars for Winter Park.

It took a while for this to come out because it takes most SL-R's 8-12 months to stretch enough to fit 27.5 wheels.

Stock steel bolts on the front part of the direct mount clamp and ti bolts on the two rear mounts? And they even replaced the fork bumper bolts with aluminum. Rad touches.

"An audible alarm will warn of an upcoming front derailleur shift so that a rider can choose to remain in a given gear." Yup, I'm going to pay hundreds of dollars more to be warned that my front derailleur is going to shift. hahahahahahahaha.... hahahahahahaha. Go away front derailleurs. I'm quite happy with XO1.
