Hill will be staying with CRC Nukeproof, they made him a very good offer as they really want to keep him. Would love to know what Rude's doing though, it'd be great to see him remove the 'e' and 'i' from Yeti!

More than that, Brook is managed by Martin / 23 Degrees, so he does spend quite a bit of time there. As much as I'd love to see it, it's very unlikely Brook will be joining the Mob. He'd be a good fit back at Mondraker.

That appears to just be a rebrand of their current Idylle, and has 37mm stanchions (if you zoom in on the decription).

Yup, you'll have to wait until 2018's are released in January, and given their popularity I'd put an order in quick so you can get in one of the first shipments. I'm planning on getting a 2018 Pro Race as soon as they're available to order.

Welcome to the world of Enduro / All mountain riding, it sounds like you have it sorted. The only change I'd look into is the Remedy 9, specifically the year, as the 2017 9 RSL (or even 8) may suite you better then the 2016 9 if price isn't an issue. ... more »

Mr. Commencal seems very switched on, first person I agree with on both E-Bikes and the 29er DH movement. Yes the 29er has merit's in DH, but it's far from an absolute superior wheelsize (Gwin and Brosnan proving that), so keep both and let us have the choice! That proto looks sweet though

I think he'd be ok with that, it'd still be his best result all season!

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

To put the result into perspective Danny won by 1.8 seconds over Gee last year, 1.4 over Loic this year.

Surprisingly no, the stock large Tues is 250lbs so 325lbs is actually quite a lot. I'm Gwins weight and for racing I've been using a 275lb spring.

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?
