How about a custom ENVE build? M60 HV on DT Swiss 180 hubs, plus a bearing upgrade from Ceramic Speed: total cost $3750, according to WheelBuilder.com. (I don't think I can share specific builds from their site, but if you plug in all the same options ... more »
Shane Stokes at CyclingTips had the most interesting piece of context so far: "Meanwhile Van den Driessche’s father has, predictably, insisted upon her innocence. [...] His words will likely be viewed with some scepticism, as her brother is currently ... more »
Boohoo, Aaron Gwin doesn't love us enough... This is the most popular thread on Vital right now, and every other comment on anything Gwin-related is asking who he's riding for. People are having fun speculating, and he knows it, and he's just egging ... more »
Your step uncle's best friend is right. My former roommate's ex-girlfriend's dentist was sitting behind Bruni and Vergier and Brosnan in an Arby's last week, and he said everything here is true.
I got a GoPro. Good motivation to put on those fresh tires I've been saving under the bed, get some new brake pads, and go ride that one trail that scares me... do it for the shot, right?
Oh, this is fun. "In the Look for" = ? "Hole in the mountain" = Canyon? "the eScobar" = Specialized? "a system of down under guy" = Somebody Australian or from NZ?
"...it's obvious people are hooked on the simplicity and clean look of 1X systems, so making them more accommodating of a larger range of riders (fit or otherwise) is clearly a priority for all the brands." SRAM deserves credit for their marketing department. ... more »
OneUp just released a 45t cog for Shimano cassettes. For the most part, I think, 'Why not?' If somebody wants to spend the cash to install a chainring-sized cog, and that helps them have fun on a bike, who am I to judge? On the other hand... Does anybody ... more »

As much fun as that is to imagine, I think he's just using SRAM Matchmaker.
Looks a lot more like the Sunn DH frame of a couple years ago, to me.
Obviously not an exact match, but the Canfield is a short dual-link design and this looks like a high single pivot with a pull-to-push linkage, a la the Sunn. (I know pull-to-push ... more »
Looks like whatever Brosnan's got going on back there, Gwin's got it too. I thought I was imagining it when I first looked at this shot but now I'm more convinced. https://instagram.com/p/0LHTxMFSpm/
Not the current world champ, and not technically dirt jumps, but a 3x former world champ airing it out. Close enough?
So, what happens now? I have to assume that at least one or two people at the UCI are intelligent enough to realize that preventing the Syndicate from registering would be a bad decision. Is there some sort of appeal process?
I want to say yes, but my perception was that the top of the game changed after Gwin made everybody look silly for a season. Seems like the serious factor got turned up another notch (in terms of training, diet, etc). It's not impossible that somebody ... more »
As far as I see it, it's pretty easy to set up your bike so that you won't get any flats. Throw in some nice, thick tire liners, a pair of heavy-duty tubes--maybe even some sealant in the tubes--and pump those suckers up nice and firm. Flat-free! But, ... more »
Gwin confirmed SRAM drivetrain but Fox suspension today. A rare combination. Apart from Lapierre I can't think of any other teams running that set-up.
