You guys are way overthinking it. This is just the bike he used at US nationals, he's racing a Bronson here in Aspen.

It's a lot to digest for sure, let me try to summarize: 18 hardware options instead of 80; intentionally designed eye-to-eye and stoke length rather than a collection of lengths determined by happenstance; consistent internal pressures and performance across an entire range regardless of length/stroke; decreased friction throughout; increased internal space for modern shock technology; designing bikes around shocks and no longer vice-versa; a consistent platform from which to develop kinematics.

Taken alone none of these is necessarily a major problem, but addressing them all at once is a big collective step toward improving performance. Other than cramming more and more inside of them, the only real change to rear shocks in more than a decade has been a few mm increase in the diameter of mountain hardware.

Everyone loves to use new 'standards' as a punching bag (often because they seem to do the opposite of creating a standard), but rear shocks have never been truly standardized. This seems a logical approach to actual standardization while also delivering real performance improvement. Pinch me.

Interesting comments from Peaty. Much of the impetus for the UCI point rules came from current WC teams and athletes pushing to make the WC's more exclusive to top-tier riders only. Seems those feelings change a bit when confronted with the reality of how difficult it is to gain points when you don't already have them (especially early in the season).
