Todd Leduc! One of the better guys to pass through the DH scene.
I remember when he replaced the rear shock on his Foes with a solid metal rod for the Lake Morena DH races they used to have in San Diego way out near the Mexican border. For mo' better pedaling!

Recently watched the whole Leduc family (Todd, Kyle and the old man) battle it out racing short course trucks.
Still pinning it as hard as ever.

Lets see..
The AM rim is narrower than XC rim = fail
Both rims are less then 30mm inside width = fail
A superior rim straight from the factory in Asia (where these are made) is half the price = FAIL

But the color ways are raaaaaad bro!

The point is to bring some attention to a brand that has been stagnant for the last 15 years...
The custom fatbike x V-10 contraption they had on the other hand was at least interesting!

2D forged arm, 24mm spindle, fixed spider...unless these retail for $50 they are a huge fail for Thomson.

Everyone who I saw look at and pick these cranks up just kinda laughed. They belonged in the China knock-off section.

Dooood, don't forget about Lake Tahoe with Squaw Valley in '99. Young and angry Weir built a course that Nico was afraid of and the unknown Aussies shredded! Bring it back to the West Coast! I vote Mammoth.

Added reply in a thread So, what about the Strava Heat Map? 5/17/2014 9:20 PM

Yeah, that Heat Map Crap sucks! Way to blow it Strava. There does not even need to be a segment, anyone can see where every strava user is riding. Really bad idea. I don't even see why they would want to do this, what is the benefit? Strava will soon ... more »

The Shimano USA factory guys state the front rings are "a little wide, a little narrow, with a little hook".

AKA "a little" like a copy of SRAM!

Straight tubes!
Serviceable bearings not designed for a fishing reel or RC car!
Water bottle mount!
Threaded BSA BB shell!!! (those who complain about lack of PF30 just don't know yet.....)

Thank you SC, finally a possible replacement for 2011 Speshy Enduro (with janky proprietary shock).
It's been a while, but I seem to remember shredding VPP's back in the day.

The baby blue/pink one sure does look like it was speced by Mr Sloan.
Jumping ships?

No matter what color you make a turd, it still stinks!

"Avid brakes, those were garbage! But these new SRAM brakes are awesome!"

Hahahaha!

And I am sure this new design has been thoroughly tested, just like the road bike disk brakes that were recently recalled.

Looking into the crystal ball; hacked together 650b Stumpy (29er front end, new rear + linkage+ shock) released late spring/summer to salvage some lost sales. Real version redesign 650b Stumpy for next model year. There will be some blown up Enduro World ... more »

Of course it's a Specialized 27.5/650B! They stand to lose tons of cash in the current market without a 27.5 offering. It is truly a case of the customer (and dealers) demanding a product and Specialized having to comply. I am sure more models will follow....
