Seems way too high to actually work on this bike.
BMC does something similar on the new TrailFox 29. Pretty slick.

It improves durability for those who ride in mud for sure. Crankbrothers also updated a few other details in the name of longevity last fall: http://www.vitalmtb.com/photos/features/INTERBIKE-Part-4-Another-28-New-Products-for-2014,6413/Updated-Crankbrothers-Kronolog-Seatpost,64263/bturman,109
I have yet to re-test the post with the updates though.

Mud guard for the Crankbrothers Kronolog.
Check out www.xddriverbody.com for a complete list of companies making XD compatible hubs/wheels. It's pretty huge.

What else would you buy? The thing I like about this system is that it isn't ghetto. FINALLY. The ratio jumps in the cassette are perfect, not a compromise. While it's certainly a niche item, those that appreciate consistent shifting will really enjoy it.
With its horizontal movement, the derailleur also adds a massive performance gain for DH bikes. By design it eliminates ghost shifting and skipping, things that plague nearly every DH bike. If you've ever used XX1 you'll know that it doesn't skip around. I'm glad they've decided to make a derailleur available for a standard 10-speed cassette as well.
In my experience, 5mm in bottom bracket height or crank length can definitely make a difference on rocky trails. This is pretty similar.
Krispy is correct. There are no aluminum cogs on the X01 DH cassette.
I recall that while developing XX1 SRAM tested various small cog options. 10-teeth won out because of reliability reasons. I believe with a 9-tooth they observed some skipping and premature wear.
"It doesn't even take advantage of the fact you could make a wider hub body and thus stronger wheel."
Now you're thinking.
#6, combined with this one, I think you'll find plenty of world wide variety if you look through our previous Bucket Lists.

Euan and #6, this is simply one man sharing five of his favorite rides that might be worthy of being added to your bucket list. It's not meant to be a definitive "Top Five Rides in the Entire Universe" article, so please take it for what it is and appreciate what Browne is putting on the table.
Better yet, try adding something to the discussion. What are your five favorite rides that I should consider for my own bucket list?
To add to Johan's reply, I requested the converted EUR to USD prices be included to help give the rest of the world a sense of the prices. The slideshow does state that US pricing isn't final.

Why are you comparing an XL Banshee to a Large YT? A Large Rune is very similar to the Large Capra.
Loved this. Only wish we could see more of it and fewer fancy POV shots.

We're aware. They still slipped.

Typo indeed! Good catch.

FOX doesn't offer anything in the 34 range with less than 160mm of travel in their aftermarket lineup, and I can't recall seeing any shorter travel bikes with lowered 34 forks. Can you? We wish they'd offer it. Perhaps weight was somewhat of a priority, too?
We recently rode a Solo with RockShox suspension and a lowered 140mm Pike. The bike was slightly worse in the pedaling department but had better support where it's needed, providing more good feedback and making the bike easier to jump/pump. With a slight weight gain (aluminum wheels, fork) it was also more planted through the rough stuff.

Those things still exist?
