Are we sure its a prototype and not just the standard trail bike with a longer fork? With WC coming up I expect to see a lot of the latter...

Sure. But maybe don't tell Luca or Loris that (they aren't tall)

You'd be more apt to say "run what feels best".

Just go back a few months ago to see how everyone was up in arms about the wheel debate. I'm merely suggesting both are able to win at the top level in both enduro and DH.

I've had this stance since the start. Just wanted to point this out now that we are reaching the end of the race season...

Though its tough to know for certain how much control these guys have over the rim manufacturing process, I have to agree with you. I've had excellent success with Light-Bicycle wheels. I can buy a set built up with good hubs, and two spare rims, for about the same price. Food for thought.

Remember - Cushcore changes all of that. The system takes up a ton of volume and adds sidewall support. I've been able to run 20 at 200 pounds. I didn't like it, but I could do it without rolling the tire off the rim or damaging the rim. No way I could do this otherwise.

Plus remember, he's running double down up front and DH casing in the rear.

Thx! So this would mean a guy like me would run 27-28psi. Seems totally reasonable with Cushcore.

Ha. I was just going to ask what he weighs...

Btw, so much for "27.5" wheels can't compete now that 29"ers are legit"

This was almost really cool. That effect is super lame. I want to see Richie ride and maybe learn a thing or two. This is an editor making his mark in the worst way possible. HINT: When you have one of the best riders in the world less=more.

You also have to remember, for a system like the 40, high and low speed effect one and other to the point its not as precise as we are lead to believe.

Plus, these guys have so much done at the shim-level the adjustments are more (very) fine tuning...

1) Please release Alpha Project on iTunes or Vital (full length - as high of quality as you can)
2) I think that rock huck clip of Minnaar was one of the first mountain bike videos I ever watched online. Pretty sure it was in my high school library with DC while penciling out our race schedule at the age of 16 lol.
3) Awesome job w the interview.

I've found similar results. I've also tried the bike with a coil with interesting results which you can find in our longer term look due out later this year.

Try the new Nomad or V10. That'll give you an idea what else VPP is capable of
