Yeah he seems to have deleted it. It was a selfie of him on the trails with the SC Intense kit on: Alpinestars jersey (with the team logo) and Bluegrass helmet. And not the kit from when he was on that team a couple years ago EDIT: Nope, turns out I ... more »

I just read "Blenki to Norco", coming from an industry insider (not throwing out his name, but he's a filmmaker)

KTM is a Swiss brand. EDIT: I don't know what I just did, massive brain fart. KTM is Austrian

Not the most recent news, but it seems like Lew Buchanan has found himself a ride for 2015. There's numerous posts on his Instagram clearly implying that he's on a team (e.g.:"Favourite track & we are back there in 2015! Windham does not fail to ... more »

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

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
