It'd be a shame to drop that awesome idea. I think Neko could do really well on another, more relaxed team and on a bike he's used to. But if that happens, who will be the big dog for TWR? Brook was supposed to be their top dog but injuries have slowed ... more »

If you want a really aggressive AM bike, the Commencal Meta SX is just amazing, it's truly a mini-DH bike. Here's a couple vids of it: http://vimeo.com/76182654 http://vimeo.com/103986450 It's a 26", maybe you won't like that, I don't know

awesome! good to know. can you elaborate on your lessons learned? if you don't want to give anything away, no problem, but i think all vital viewers would be stoked to know more about the project.

"Shower thoughts." Love it.

Pedal-kickback (the cranks rotating backwards when the suspension is compressed as a result of chain growth) typically isn't really felt until you've used quite a bit of the travel, in which case you likely wouldn't be pedaling anyway. Low kickback on...more

There's lawyers (usually lawyer firms, it takes a lot of time) that specialize in class action lawsuits: they get people to sign petitions (be sure that there's enough people that complain), then interview them all, and BOOM, they sue some of the largest ... more »

Pretty sure it's Renner's, but even if it was Gwin's, KTM seems to give (or give a solid discount on) bikes to RedBull athlete. Right off the bat: Stevie Smith, the Athertons, Aimee Fuller (snowboard),.. I know there's more, just not the time too lazy ... more »

So I read this review 2-3 days ago, loved it, but I had some shower thoughts afterwards:
Isn't it a bit silly to have almost non-existent pedal kickback if you can barely pedal the bike over rough stuff without the pedals touching the ground?
So wouldn't it be more beneficial (if I were to buy this bike, which is never because I'm a broke college student, but anyways) to buy shorter cranks for this thing of beauty?

That track looked so freaking technical, I'd never be able to find any flow on it

with those complaints about suspension and the lower bb being less than practical I can't see it being an 'outstanding' bike, it's the frame/shock we primarily want to hear about and sounds like it isn't exactly perfect going by the review

I'd say about 10 a year would be just fine, a number that would allow to have an organized and logical race schedule (e.g. A race every other week). Also, I think this sport would get much bigger if RedBull realized that live streaming their events on ... more »

It's a rule that is common to all UCI disciplines. And it's the kind of small thing that only bitchy team managers would report if a rider started doing well on these. Kind of like Minnaar's mishap in Cairns: any guy outside the top30 would've gotten ... more »

Sunn will have to ditch the belt drive. From the UCI rules: "The bicycle is a vehicle with two wheels of equal diameter. The front wheel shall be steerable; the rear wheel shall be driven through a system comprising pedals and a chain . "

Absolutely love it! And I'm not the biggest Specialized fan.
The only thing I don't like is the grips, but apart from that it looks super clean (which is usually only the case on DH bikes with air suspension and trail bike components)

Not aware of any DH races where dudes are skipping the chainguides. .Feel free to re-post when it's race (or park) ready.

Sounds like this EWS thing has given French riders a reason to learn English,
it's almost a pleasure to listen to Jérôme, Damien and Fabien.

Just buy the cheap 10 to 7 speed conversion kit from ti-springs instead of paying 1000 dollars for an XO1 DH groupset
