Sounds like you need a better crew to follow! Next time for sure.

Give him the right color and he'd dig it.

It looks as though they pushed a bunch of dirt from the last jump into the second to last. The show booter is massive this year.

Added a comment about feature WIN A ROCKSHOX BOXXER & STEVIE SMITH JERSEY - Vital OTB, Mont Sainte Anne World Cup 8/15/2016 2:31 PM
C50_twitter3_1382472127

Congrats to thinkbike, the winner of the Mont Sainte Anne World Cup OTB contest and the RockShox BoXXer World Cup fork!

Of 337 entries, 23 of you correctly guessed that both Danny Hart and Rachel Atherton would win. thinkbike’s predictions were off by a combined time of just 2.606 seconds. Nice work!

No entrants correctly guessed the exact exact Elite Men's DH winner and time to the thousandth of a second, so Stevie Smith's autographed jersey, collector pack, and Truvativ signature BlackBox handlebar will carry over to the next round.

We'll have several more OTB contests throughout the season, so check back often.

SRAM does. It's the new Eagle link. Certainly stands out.

Correct. This is Jared's ride, the next is Keene's.

Landon, we feel it'd be pretty significant, and have been asking Scott to make the change for several years. For the reasons you mention and others mentioned in the review, there's no doubt in our minds that this bike could drastically improve if Scott were to ditch the TwinLoc system. We'd also suggest the largest volume spacer from FOX to add some much needed progression to the rear end.

Cheers bud. Thanks for reading.

Cheers for the feedback. We replaced the Red Bull player with the Youtube version.

That fresh Patrol with a Metric Super Deluxe is looking mighty fine! Hoping the new shock tech makes its way into the rest of the line.

This bike for $3,000 is a steal, especially considering you'll likely get good shop service to go along with it. It's an excellent introduction to how much fun full suspension can be. The frame will last you years, as will most of the components. If you're a heavier rider (175lbs+) you may see some early wear on the items mentioned in the review, however.

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure Krunk is now on a modified version of the Smuggler with a tad more travel. It may even use the new metric shock sizing and upper mount bearings. I own a Smuggler as well and love the thing, but I'd be hard pressed to take it for many laps at SV.

Congrats to hanklorimer, the winner of the Lenzerheide World Cup OTB contest and the RockShox BoXXer World Cup fork!

Of 400 entries, 22 of you correctly guessed that both Danny Hart and Rachel Atherton would win. hanklorimer’s predictions were off by a combined time of just 0.961 seconds. Nice work! No one correctly guessed the winning male rider and time to the thousandth of the second, leaving Stevie Smith's signed jersey up for grabs at the next World Cup race.

We'll have several more OTB contests throughout the season, so check back often.

A 20mm travel change typically results in a 1 degree head angle change.

The Superfly was a rad ride, but things are progressing quickly these days. I think you'd be surprised with a ride on a new school 29er with a little more modern geo. They're an absolute blast.

No, they were just fine. Like every other bike on the market they had a slight kink in the top tube to allow the fork to clear when it spins around. Now they've determined that they can make a better, stiffer bike by making the downtube straighter.
