Really good value for money, too! Commencal just came out with the Supreme SX, though: http://www.vitalmtb.com/news/press-release/Introducing-the-Commencal-Supreme-SX,1711

Jure Zabjek (was in the hot seat for a while, finished 12th) could use a 29er. Claudio thought he was riding a 26.

Congrats, Jure! Best finish yet at a World Cup!

The first ever win at a UCI DH WC race for a 29er has finally happened. Let's see how it goes in Leogang.

Are the extensions carbon or titanium? This could be the next big upgrade for me.

150g? According to Rockshox's website the old 650b Pike was 1861g and the new 650b Pike is 1841g. That's only 20g lighter. The only thing I can think of is maybe that's because the old version is non-boost and the new version is boost? But even the 29" version of the old Pike is only...more

If and when they do win many DH races this year and, subsequently, be the first to market mass-produced 29er DH bikes, then that will surely be $ka-ching$ for them. But what if the UCI were to announce a rule that DH bikes would only be 650b (or even ... more »

The difference between now and when Jeff Steber built that prototype is night and day. Boost wasn't there yet, there wasn't a fork designed specifically to be a 29" dh fork (the Dorado on the photo is for a 26" wheel), 29" tires with a DH casing weren't ... more »

Greg Minnaar was the fastest of the top 10 in Qualis, not sure if conditions were that much worse for him vs Loris and Loic.

Minnaar usually starts the season slow. Based on most recent form Gwin and Hart seem to be fastest. We now have the likes of Vergier and Shaw beating them. 29er's in DH have truly arrived.

This is all well and good until competition is none existent when none of the teams can compete because of limited budgets. And then the racing gets boring because you have the same teams winning over and over (i.e. Ferrari during the Schumacher era ... more »

The whole point about F1 is that there is a certain car "Formula" which manufacturers have to follow, where there are strict regulations from engines all the way to aerodynamics. DH is the pinnacle of our sport but it is by no means akin to F1. It's ... more »
