I had initially planned to include a basic tubeless comparison as a control, but quite honestly I got too sketched out to do one as hard as I was hitting the curb with the inserts installed. I was sketched out every first run-in with a new insert installed. Knowing a basic tubeless hit would have the greatest chance of a big failure meant it had to be reserved for last, and I opted out. At 245-pounds with firm suspension settings, hitting that curb while not unweighting the bike at all is a very hard impact.

Jeff,

Thanks for the feedback, It's spot on on what what you can honestly tell me I feel. Just need to find a demo in the area so see if it'll eat up everything in it's path minus all my energy (as my dad bod is really starting to take shape.)

Cheers.

I thought it was the opposite since they use a sprag clutch instead of pawls and springs which rub together. The only drag should come from the bearings. Must be cool having a silent rear hub too!

We have a set in for review here at Vital. After mounting them for the first time I spun the back wheel up to speed with the bike in a stand. Then I watched in awe as the wheel spun for over a minute before very gradually slowing to a stop. There's less drag on Onyx hubs than just about anything else we've seen, which correlates to some free speed gains on trail. Plus they're practically silent which is rad... Nothing but tires ripping through dirt.

We never said he was, only that he was the "World Cup champion". As for not loading pads from the top...is this really a deal breaker for you? Just curious.

I think part of the reason for all the frustration about wheel size and standards evolution is due to the past 20+ years of stagnation, followed by rapid progression. The bike I started riding on in 198? Was not different from my last hard tail which was in 2000. Then in 2000ish I got a Turner XCE which was quickly warrantied for a Horst Link 5 Spot. Then I kept that bike until the Santa Cruz TBLT came out. I had wanted to get something newer and fresher, but there was not a better trail bike released between the early 2000s until something like 2012. I went through forks and 9 speed drive trains and wheels but kept the bike because nothing was newer or better for 12 years. The lack of new standards during that time was not because the standards we had were the best, or even good. It was due to a lack of progression.

Since 2012 I've been having a blast riding new bikes and new technology. The bikes finally do what we always wanted them to do. Are new standards a PITA? Yes. Are new wheels sizes difficult to factor into DH racing- sure. But I'm ok with it all because I get to ride an Evil Wreckoning rather than a Horst link 5 spot with a 69 degree HA and a 15" reach.

I'll take all the new standards they throw at me rather than ride the same bike for 10+ years when that bike does not do what I want it to do. We need progression. This sport is so fun, such a great way to spend a life. But the bikes need to be better. The Wrecker is rad. But The STA is too slack, the reach is too short and the seat tube is too long to let me size up and still run a 150 dropper. The HA is still too steep. I don't know if the chain stays are too long or too short or just right; but I'm willing to try other sizes out. I rode bullshirt bikes for 25+ years. I'm getting old. I want to ride a bike that does in reality what they do in my mind before I'm out of the game!!!

So 29 wheels in DH. Hell yes. 33", 36, 48, 54 sure. At some point they will suck. We don't even know what that size is yet. Let's get this show rolling!

What's the wheelbase of gregs bike? Is he not already at an unfair advantage by your logic? I mean Brosnan isn't gonna be able to pilot that thing 29" or not. Gregs height means he can utilise a more stable bike than shorter guys, he should be banned from competing cus he's too massive.

I agree, I didn't think I would hear that from Niko. Didn't he essentially go out on his own and create the V-process because he wasn't happy with other frames. He had radical geometry and technology that was ahead of everyone else and won a ton of races. Seems like a pot/kettle situation.

I don't think it's as simple as that. Developing a 35" wheel would take years and tonnes of money. And when you're done the huge negative side of such a massive wheel probably won't be quicker than a 275 or 29 wheeled bike.
The bike doesn't automatically get faster the bigger wheels you put on it. The most successful team will be the one that makes the right decisions over which size to use for which race and for their riders - just like tyre choice, etc, etc

I don´t think it would be good that the UCI would step in and rule what wheel size should be used. Both wheel sizes work for all the girls and boys racing EWS so why shouldn´t that be the case in DH. Like the commentators on Red Bull TV use to say - it is the pinnacle of the cycling sport and like Formula 1 and therefore just use/or roll on whatever makes you happy as a team.

I think it is a bit strange that both want the UCI to rule in that case.

@Brines, Isiah scored 53 last night and he's a generous 5.8! JK, I know he's an outlier, but had to point it out!!!

I ride an Enduro 29 Carbon. It's the fastest bike I've owned. I can get it sideways (just), it rails turns, it climbs, it ploughs. Haven't used my DH bike since I bought it.

What doesn't feel right to me is that at present, the Syndicate have an advantage over all the other teams. I know the advantage is debatable but my own experience of riding 29" bikes leads me to believe that they are faster (and Lourdes quali kind of confirmed it too). They will carry that advantage this season and over most other teams into 2018. They announced it late as a marketing stunt. They kept it under wraps so that the other teams couldn't react in time. They have access to exclusive tech from their suppliers which has allowed them to be the only team to bring this to the table.

I don't care what the wheelsize is, as long as it's fair for everyone involved. At the moment it's not a level playing field. Whether smaller riders can ride them with the same amount of travel etc will depend on how the bikes are developed.

I don't think wheelsize can be compared to other tech such as suspension. Wheels are a fundamental component of the bike and are a defining component. Just as BMX is 20", road is 700c etc. The wheels make such a big difference to the characteristic of a bike, I think that it's important that this component is a constant. If it settles at 29" that's fine, at least we'll have a level playing field again, if the bikes fit smaller riders without any compromises (less suspension travel etc). It's a shame that we only saw 2 years of WC level development on 27.5" wheels before the jump to 29".

That's the worst point that keeps cropping up. The exact same thing happens whenever a new innovation or improvement hits the circuit - carbon frames and components, somebody develops a glue-like tyre compound, somebody develops a super controlled damper (that smooths out terrain just like a 29er wheel btw). Etc etc, eventually everyone develops (copies) their own carbon frame, their own tyre, their own dampers and everyone's back on the same page...until the next thing comes along. It's precisely how competition drives innovation.
Besides that your (and Brendan's and Loic's) argument assumes that a 29er wheel will be faster and we simply do not know that it will in competition. Getting the right combination of wheelsize and bike set up for a given rider on a given track is what's fastest, we don't know that will always be a 29er for every track and every rider.
Good Santa Cruz. Would you rather nobody tried because "29ers are..."

Cheers for your feedback, forrequi. I too have experienced a seized Guide RSC lever, though performance up until that point was stellar.

As noted in the title, this is a First Ride feature. It includes our initial impressions over the first 80 miles of riding. Rest easy, as we'll look to update everyone with long term impressions in the future.
