Gwin and Graves must think alike, considering their tire redesigns look so similar.

A2C can vary due to their use of coil springs for the negative spring.

Pump in air for a very light rider and you get a shorter A2C; pump in air for a very heavy rider and you get a longer A2C. It's more honest and accurate to say +/- 5mm, to ensure there's no dramatic social media/forum firestorm about lying about A2C, when it's actually measured/compared by consumers.

Didn't expect to see Loic back on the podium so soon after his shoulder injury.

Pretty unreal looking pan shot from Duncan too.

Piggyback shocks have lockouts?

Gimbal makes the PoV style much more watchable. I'm tempted to try one out myself, but it seems like one would need to learn how to fix them, to save them after all the damage they take. :D

Looks like it could be a basic Tuned Mass Damper.

6c. The SB 29ers only have 1 internal port on the right side (no FD), and generally a shorter head tube.

What dial? You mean that giant knurled black ring at the top that's as big as the air can's diameter itself?

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?
