It's got a vein popping out of its seat tube.

Why not just use the downtube bottle mount with a Pro Storage bottle.

Looks 27.5 to me, due to the lack of BB drop.

Good stuff. The Blenki clip and you almost going through that creek crossing made me laugh. Great looking trails over there.

(assuming the pedals are just an excuse to give a sneak peak of the proto stuff that you aren't allowed to show)

Wild Rock'r2 with Minion shoulder knobs? Had to check and see if my E29's downtube looked that boxy and if the link was that long, to see if I wasn't looking at a proto Enduro, cause that doesn't look familiar to me.

Edit: Looks like it's just the long link that's throwing me off. Keene's instagram shows him with a normal looking 650b Enduro with a longer than normal link.

"SRAM will only make the Eagle chainring in the direct-mount style at first, and we were told it's the only Eagle component compatible with their 1x11 drivetrains." Here, I saved you $350

Chains have stayed 3/32" inner width for decades. Every narrowing has been done to the outer width. Note how KMC basically downsized their pin measurement every time another rear cog has been added.

To maintain intended levels of anti-squat on frames designed for 2x?

I hope that's not a field of poodle dog bush that the photog's standing in (purple stalks).

Orbea and Turner looked so smooth (have a bit of trouble with that Commencal? ). Jamis's crank seemed to almost stay perfectly level--wonder if that right amount of kickback was designed in, or if it were just coincidence. Was paying attention to cable routing on some of them, and Turner has the most locked down setup of them all.

I can speculate why you had so many chain drops with NW setups... mainly because I have had the same prob with my RF NW rings.

How did the stock slaughter tire handle that kind of terrain, assuming you rode it before swapping to a Butcher? :D

How do you say it pedals compared to other trail bikes? None of the glamour shots show any sort of pedaling, which might turn off some of those into 3hr rides with buddies going both up and down mountains and backcountry stuff.

Watched it the first time on the edge of my seat scoping out his mind-blowing lines and riding skill, and the 2nd time taking in the environment while laid back.

DH mtb must be viewed as some sort of spartan sport down there.
