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.

Added a comment about feature WIN A ROCKSHOX BOXXER & STEVIE SMITH JERSEY - Vital OTB, Lenzerheide World Cup 7/12/2016 12:18 PM
C50_twitter3_1382472127

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.

Agreed on several points, though my experience with the shifter hasn't been quite as poor as yours.

Rad to hear, though I'm certain Shimano wouldn't officially endorse it. We were shown an 11-46 tooth cassette alongside the new XT Di2 stuff around Sea Otter, although there's conflicting information from Shimano on whether or not it will work with XTR Di2.

Cheers for digging in and finding "real" prices. Chain Reaction also has some good deals on it right now if you'd prefer a more reputable seller.

No doubt it will still be heated. Though I hope they don't, rider friendships/grudges may come into play. At least the judges will all have intimate knowledge of the terrain, building, and riding skills required for each run.

Nice try, aubin26. Did you really think we wouldn't notice that you cheated? Not cool. Per the contest rules, expect Nathan Rennie and Chris Kovarik to pay you a visit soon...

I want to know when this bad boy will be available. Nothing like some rough DH laps to truly test suspension performance.

Sure that wasn't a 46mm offset on the Reign?
