The bike has a Sram derailleur, but they don't list Sram as a sponsor. Any insight into how that works out? Is it part of the YT deal? From the YT Mob page "The race bike setup differs only slightly from the stock bike: Grips, brakes and tires come from ... more »

I get the clue. Heisenberg isn't really dead, he funding Gwin's move to KTM/Audi/Redbull/Rocky Mountain. Or is it YT, or is it Trek, or is it Specialized? Either way, Whiteley is Heisenberg and Finkle is Einhorn.

She's not technically racing anymore, but Micayla Gatto is riding for Diamondback now. Any word on the Tahnee Seagrave pic a bunch of pages back? New team, new bike...?

“Spy Optics products are awesome and they have got me to a lot of race wins and we’ve had a lot of good times ,” Brosnan said. "Good times" clearly he's gonna ride YT goggles this year.

Lapierre doesn't utilize the driveside of the bike for cable routing

I saw a hardtail and a bunch of fat bikes raced during a few enduro races I was in last season. Since they were technically raced during an enduro race, would they fall into the enduro race bike category also? Didn't Tomac race DH with a drop bar back ... more »

If he goes to Specialized, is he going to keep Maxxis and Fox? And after all that effort getting the fit of the new Yeti jersey just right. Not too loose, but not too tight

While they're at it, they should sign Missy again. She needs a ride

I use a layer of gorilla tape around the rim, pop a 949 Racing valve stem in, then another layer of tape, hook up a compressor and good to go. No need to remove the valve core with these stems, in my experience at least. http://949racing.com/blackanodizedaluminumvalve.aspx ... more »

Maybe have a generic parts kit that you bolt on to each frame to better compare the actual frame and suspension characteristics from model to model. It would give me a better idea of why this bike is better than that bike.

I've considered making the trip, but its like 6+ hours whereas Windham is less than 2 and doesn't require a passport. I'm sure it would be worth it though. Calling it now, Peaty to start an EWS team after he washes out of DH. Since enduro is for washed-up, ... more »

I was wondering the same thing, what does this mean for the team? Heard rumor about Peaty stepping down to allow a young American to step up. If only Windham were on the schedule this year, I could see Peaty ride one last time in person

I think he's from the East coast. It would be pretty sick if he did though.

He could always ride for Morewood, based right in Pietermaritzburg. Proving Minnaar can never have enough wood

Tough to tell with Graves, but why would Yeti just build up a "fresh weapon" for Jared to ride if he's out? Whereas Brook is still on the same wheels he's used all season

I read he broke his ankle but rode down to the bottom and will not be competing. I also read that T Mac knocked himself out and won't compete either.
