Sounds exactly like what the DC Mountain Lab was for a while

Got it, could've sworn the announcement claimed it was last season but that explains it

Does anyone think its news that Peaty is still listed as a Syndicate member with UCI? He did announce retirement from world cups last season, is this an option to allow for entry in a few rounds if he wanted?

Is it not big news that Peaty is still listed on the Syndicate team? He announced retirement from World Cups but could we still see him at a few rounds then?

Where have you been?!? They dropped the team with Loic, Loris, and Finn to focus on other areas. Lapierre won't have an official team this year I believe

Stoked to see him back in WC's there's so much talent and wisdom to just be making youtube videos. He should be a good leader for a team with a lot of younger talent.

Love the Marc Beaumont pick up! That guy has been in the circuit longer than almost all the other team combined I think. Great opportunity to bring some veteran experience to that team.

Probably one of the best insights into what goes on during the entire Rampage event! Love this perspective, really shows the adversity that is faced by more than just those that are riding... Gotta love Rampage!

It would make sense, Yeti is known for developing riders until they are "too big" for them to support. I don't think anyone expected Rude to come out as strong as he did this year. If anyone has a major increase in value after this season it is him. ... more »

Hey Not quite what you're asking for, but I think its something you could look at. I've broken both wrists a few times to a point that holding on hurts on a long ride sometimes or a day in the bike park. I'm also terrified to put my hands down when i ... more »

This is just speculation but isnt this the first we have seen of a 650B fox 40? Do you think we may see teams like the syndicate or the athertons showing up to PMB with 650B wheels?

Brook Macdonald is on a 650B bike for national champs, probably see this at PMB

Added a product review for Race Face Narrow/Wide Chainring 11/6/2013 12:45 PM

Awesome Product not XX1 Priced!


The Good: Not an expensive option to running a single ring, dont have to buy a whole xx1 or xx0 set up to run a single ring without a chain guide!

The Bad: Need to make sure that the chain is tensioned properly otherwise losing a chain will occur


I was very impressed with my Raceface narrow wide chainring. I purchased a 32 with hopes to upgrade to a 34 once i started pedalling a bit more.  Stupidly I didn't re tension the chain after switching from a 2x setup,  I used a roller to keep the chain more tensioned and it held up well, I lost a chain twice without it properly tensioned.   Once realizing that I needed to take a few links out of the chain, I was never able to lose a chain.  Considering if you want to run a true 1x setup with no chainring you need to buy a sram xx1 or xx0 setup I was much happier paying the 40 bucks to get this, rather then the grand+ to get the sram setup!
