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

Looks like that will be Mongoose. They showed production bikes with it a month ago.

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.

They don't even really have leverage over that world either. The Teams are pissed, the riders are pissed....I think it's coming to a head even on that end of things. Very few riders have a shot at a national team or the Olympics, they just want to make a living and ride their bikes like most of us.

Actually, UCI is using the rule to mess with the roadies and XC guys, so it's not just gravity they're after. The XC guys are probably more pissed at this moment...events like Leadville and the Whiskey 50 are unsanctioned.

No it's not a simple solution, there is a reason these races don't have USAC sanctioning. For them there is no reason too, USAC does not give them any benefit, it's a business decision. It's not by chance most of the new big events, that are bigger than most of the USAC events don't deal with them.

Also, this is nothing but weakly camouflaged extortion.

Interesting enough, unless something has radically changed in the past couples weeks USAC is the ONLY major cycling fed enforcing the rule.
