Added a comment about feature Nico Vouilloz and Fabien Barel Discuss 29ers in DH 5/2/2017 10:06 AM
C50_89341830_1252229392

I think two good points were made by Loic and Brendan in the dirt walk around. If everyone gets 29ers, it's the same race, just on bigger wheels. The only people that lose are the amateurs who now have to buy, new frame, new fork, new wheels, new tyres. It's not really progression, it's a variation. Bad Santa Cruz.

Sounds like really good racing, with different winners of the stages. Jerome's experience and consistency are paying off too. Good to see Tracy back too.

Maxxis need to strengthen their sidewalls. I've had two mega exo Minions and a High Roller 2 deform on me in the last year. Maybe I should move on.......

Your weight whinge doesn't add up. One of the only issues with 1x11 is top speed. I think this is more about be able to run a bigger ring up front, rather than an easier climbing gear. There are a load of advantages to using 1x11 (or 1x10) over 2x whatever. I use a guide up front too, as no system is 100% reliable.

At the end of the day, you don't have to buy it. No one does.

I want a wider crank axel, by maybe 20-30mm. I tend not to ride fully on my pedals (flats), so I think a wider Q factor would suit me and make me use all my pedal. That means I could go with a wider rear axel (154?) and use a 20mm up front, which could ... more »

I'm sorry to say that Dirt has gone right down hill. It's sad about the mag, but their website has six main articles on the front page and one of them is 3 weeks old! Pink bike has nearly 30 and the oldest is 4 days. Vital has about 20 and the oldest is 3 days. It's a poor effort. I only find 2-3 articles of any worth in mag these days. I think it might soon be the end for them. Such a shame.
