Looks really fun for a groomed bike park trail. Had to take a closer look at that lower section.

I read a rumor that "Maxima Ultra4 0W-30 Motorcycle Engine Oil" is the equivalent of Rock Shox Pike 0W-30 Susp Fork Fluid.

I'm going to abuse that helmet cam vid at 200% speed mental training tip. Thanks.

The return force of the Command Post is controlled by how much air pressure you pump into it, at least for the Command Post IR. Spec states that it should not be pumped up to more than 25 psi. I have mine set to about 15 psi. With it completely empty, I have to nudge or bounce on the post to get it to return. On my post, it would leak out the pressure if I stored the post with it down for a couple days.

Funny typo. Trying to imagine a DJ fork with 20mm stanchions

What kind of voodoo magic are you using to keep all these bikes upright for these side profile pictures?

Larger rear tire than front is my only logical conclusion. 2.5 R, 2.35 F maybe?

Why does the rear wheel look so big?

Is that a new BOS fork? QR cam lever on the end of the axle looks newish. 29er?
Edit: oh, it's the Dizzy. Looks like it has more travel in the pic though.

Chrome. It works now, for some reason after a PC restart.

Might just be me, but the arrow keys and Prev & Next button don't work. I have to click on the thumbs on bottom...
The comparison should pretty much be decided at the cost stage, between those. The Orbea is as expensive as carbon super bikes, yet this Capra is as expensive as alloy models... the real questions I have are, what else is there that really could contend with this for Bike of the Year, and when will it be available in the US, now that the 1st gen production bugs have been squashed.

From 1 min into the video and on, she's just floating... roots, ditches, holes, etc. just absorbed and pumped, riding smoothly through as if they weren't there, even in the corners. Seeing her go through the puddles, knowing there's sometimes greasy slime mold that grows in that stuff, and then get launched out made me worry about her slipping on roots there after. I watched it again just to watch her line choice and get a better look at the ground (interesting trail to have uphill braking bumps), and I was impressed. I even paused it a couple times to try and get a look at her expression... super composed, maybe even smiling in a few sections. Looks like she still would do well in DH racing, comparing this to some of the World Cup DH coverage I watched this year.
That's honestly the kind of trail I want to ride regularly. I want to be able to ride it like that too!

That saddle got a lot of google hits today I bet.
Good stuff. Makes me wish I were there.

I usually find any Ti frame jawdropping, but this is kind of ruined by the components (like that alfine shifter).
Fanny/back pack hybrid... I guess that's one way to eventually make fanny/hip/lumbar packs acceptable.
