That wasn't a case of a certain bike frame being "slow", but rather a case of some good old fashioned racing. I think you will see a very hungry Aaron Gwin at Val di Sole next weekend.

Added reply in a thread Do you use climbing-specific suspension features like lock-out? 1/12/2015 10:54 AM
I only use the propedal feature on my Float rear shock when a longer climb is coming up. Otherwise (95% of the time) I tend not to touch any of my lockout or propedal features when riding.

Added a product review for Shimano SLX M666 Disc Brake 8/6/2012 1:49 PM
The Good: Great stopping power. No noise or squeal. They just work, and really well at that.
The Bad: None so far.
Overall: I originally bought them for my XC/AM bike, but moved them to my FR bike when I found out the XC/AM frame was cracked. They were more than enough to stop the big bike (at least 40 lbs) on steeps and only 1 finger braking is needed. They also came on my new 29er and I couldn't be happier with them. No fuss and they work great. My FR bike originally had Avid Codes on it, which gave me non-stop problems. It's nice to finally do lap after lap with no complaints about my brakes.
