Covers over the internal routing ports... Whose bike, & did they jerry rig external routing, or just not have it assembled yet?

that linkage almost looks like it could be a plastic composite... which might be durable & light enough to be a good idea.

Don't have any pics of it built up, but this bad mamma jamma. I actually contacted the dude I sold it to back in 2012 a few months ago, but he had passed it on a year later. Objectively know what I'm on now is just as capable, or probably more so(Carbon

I just want to say, as a heterosexual man, that Brook is fuckin' adorable when he grins like that.

Like iceman says, he's riding for Hope. Since Hope doesn't have ties to a suspension company, & Adam doesn't have a secondary suspension sponsor, it's basically up to him what to spend the money hope gives him on.

If I was on a independent race team, & the budget supported it, I'd be on Ohlins too.

You mentioned that you ran them on different tire widths, but didn't mention how they performed(other than to note slightly less tire rub on the wide rim.)

Did the tire ride well on narrower rims, or does the profile get so curved that you can't find the side knobs?

Dang, they really need to work on their branding, I wondered about that stem, but it doesn't really say it does Di2 anywhere in the description or name.

I'm insanely curious about wire routing, does it run out of the top through that little arrow in the pic, then back down into the stem? Post some pics when you get in installed!

Gotcha. wasn't sure if it would have enough space with a dropper, or wondering if it might rattle, but sounds like it's been problem free. Although, I am hoping they come out with a PRO stem like the tharsis, but in AM lengths, putting the battery in the steerer seems like a great solution, especially for charging.

Although, I am very tempted by that "split pivot socket" top cap Salsa released at the same time as the Redpoint. I'm on a big kick to get tools off my back & onto the bike. thinking about building a custom framebag for the small area in front of the shock, to hold multitool, pump, & tube.

Y'know, I'm slightly over the blacked out bike look, but these seem to transcend that. That detail pic with the carbon pattern on the inside of the tubes, but black on the rest is stunning. Really good design there Cesar, good luck with your new company.

haha! We will start releasing information each week about bikes, geometries, kinematics, production process, materials used, tests that we've performed... Just keep checking our Facebook and Insta for that. Be sure we know anything about those bikes...

Well, at only 13 oz of liquid, hard liquor is really the only choice... shame, as I was actually kinda stoked on it until I saw that...

Sick bike man, can you describe or show a picture of where you hid the di2 battery? Getting a Spartan sometime this week, thinking I might go Di2 once the XT stuff they announced today hits.
