Good call on the Remedy, I'm heavily involved with another brand but having test ridden one can say it's an excellent bike. To carry on the advice of others: - Suspension set up makes a difference, if the shop hasn't helped you set this up go back and ... more »

Of course they placed higher, 29ers are only an option for factory sponsored riders who should be near the top anyway. Everyone else has a 27.5, including all the riders who are not likely to place highly. Statistically speaking 27.5 has won more races ... more »

So, so far the actual racing data shows not much obvious superiority (when 3/5 sections were ridden fastest on 27.5) and from what I have seen from the daily track videos aren't as enjoyable to watch as a spectator - a personal opinion but looks like ... more »

The new bikes all appear to be Metric sized, so they can't use a Vivid

Looks exactly like an X01dh shifter to me, just at an odd angle, and there's clearly an X01dh rear derailleur in the first pic. That's not to say they won't be running or testing Box at some stage though.

So I've just noticed, this 'new' Supreme V4.2 is not actually that new. In fact it appears to be the original design, so I'm wondering when and why they changed to the production V4 bridged design?

It may also void your warranty due to the added leverage on your headtube, and in an extreme case will crack the welds joining your headtube and downtube. I'd ask the manufacturer if they're ok with it first just to be safe.
