Who cares about that, considering the price and the potential durability? Now I have a reason to keep the XX1's 94 bcd spider.

Hope that cable routing doesn't cause problems with shifting/braking.

What exactly does the rotor guard protect the rotor from? From the cooling air flow?

"Short stems provide stability" how is this true? I believed that they eased/quickened up steering, useful for slack bikes that fought steering inputs (and flopped more readily if you steered too much). If you didn't widen your bars when shortening your stem, it shifted weight back a little more and allowed you to get further back.
Is part 2 out? Wondering if it ever mentions that as reach and stack height increase, flickability decreases. For example, who goes for the long frame option (when they can fit on small) and increases travel (to 140+) on their DJ bikes and prefers it that way for flickability (ease of throwing it around)?

This was announced back in March. It's the Maxxis Aggressor. Double Down is the new tougher Enduro casing.

After watching this vid, I'm fairly convinced that bar width is connected to hip width and mobility. Those with narrow hips and decent width bars like Ratboy at 2:10 look like they are so free to move on the bike, and in a comfy place. Those with the bars a lot lower than the hip and standing kind of tall, like Gee, look kind of awkward on the bike.

I've not seen anyone plow through rock gardens at race speed chunkier than the ones at 1:00 in.
Cool way to market. Definitely got me to watch through it, rather than completely pass over it as a Northwave ad, considering I don't ride clipless.

Puy du Fou, French bike theme park you say?
Tomac gets my vote.
It should be noted that he helped guide/train Gwin in '11. Gwin dominated the World Cups for consecutive years, '11 and '12.

Nice and efficient mechanic setup. BEEF. Hope that's not a tall can of silicone-based polish in the back.

Badass setup. That modded XTR shifter...

Wow, the bushing bulge on the lowers looks so much lower than on RockShox's offerings... that certainly plays a big role in providing the extra stiffness and less bushing bind. Further apart = better for suspension performance, but the stanchions need to be that much longer (heavier) and need to have tight tolerance before they hit the inside-bottom of the lowers at max travel (no travel adjust, requiring unique parts for specific fork travel). That all said, if the Lefty had damping on a BOS level, I'd be all over that. The 45mm offset on this is a turn-off.

I also wish the hub had more PoE. It clunks loudly when engaging, especially when you have an uneven pedal stroke. Reminds me of a 18 PoE DT, it's so annoying. If it engaged with less noise and shock/feedback, I wouldn't notice it as much (and be less annoyed).
Gnarly chunk you got there. That last pic reminds me of the Stairway to Hell in Noble Canyon. I rode that for the first time about a week ago and felt like my SJ EVO 26 with XC rear tire was undergunned. Pinch flatted it there even at 40 psi (pumped it up hard after the 1st pinch flat, and it was my last tube)...

Sounds like he's going through a windstorm.
