The pattern is available, but the GRP40 rubber isn't out yet. Your only choice at the moment is 65/55 in 27.5, which is a bit hard even for a mud tire on the WC.

I think a lot of it has to do with the "coolness" factor of hearing the 1/2. It's similar to what was we saw when the Aussies showed up in DH and went padless, all of a sudden no on was wearing knee pads at the local race. If you look at the last two ... more »

I'm going to guess they're trying too keep some of the look and feel of the old dare models that used rear seat stays and an arch similar to that.

Been using Cillos stems for the last two months and love them. Stiff, light and they look beautiful!

Great product from Gamut

The lawwill type designs were evil without a floating brake. They truly brake jacked. Same goes with the old Storm Cycles system.

All the dh bikes back then where heavy and pedaled like crap

Actually I would say they're all copies of the Ventana El Cuervo design that have been tweaked.

Then why not use 150mm? It's already a standard in use if you wanted wider.

Also, we have plenty of useless standards for bike that where invented to "solve" problems, BBs anyone?

Agreed...nice building effort, but it looks like a two lane 4x course. DS is suppose to be about who can turn the fastest on all sorts of turns. I'm not sure why making flat turns seems to be seen as a bad thing.

Well, good job doing a lot of work. However, the smoother and smoother the berms and track are the less excited I am to race. I loved the track 10 years ago with more grassy turns and fewer berms. Maybe call it retro to make it pass committee. In the end though, it is good to see a...more

I might point out that a lot of the WC euros are out here this time of year riding that course.....
Anneke Beerten was also out there last weekend also. Even in California the high mountains are not usable in winter.

It is what it is........At least its racing in the winter. After sprinting that wall section a couple times, sprinting straights on most courses seems like just a warm up......
