was going to say the same thing... love how everyone is adopting the horst link now. guess trannsition's previous designs, like kona's were simply not as good.

it sounds like they didn't settle since the wording is so terse, but we'll probably never know... in any case, giant's behavior appears to be far less sketchy than trek's, who invited him in for a show and tell, and then proceeded with their own patent shortly thereafter... i own a giant, and I'll buy one again happily.

i've been on these for about a year (though we have hard core winter where I live- no riding), and they've been good. i do not have them on my DH bike, and I'm pretty careful about rock strikes. that said, they've seen some airtime and a few knicks here and there and have held up well. no complaints. actually, epic price and superbly light. wish they had one more pin in the middle of the pedal.

i dunno if people really "hate" on Gwin. maybe a few think he might have been a flash in the pan, or that his preparation last year sort of sucked, but hate? i don't think so. bummer stevie was out, but should be a great battle for the overall.

common sense ain't so common... so awesome though - loved this. i wouldn't have been as chill as you. hell, I chased some stupid poodle around last week when it went crazy trying to attack my dog... I gotta mellow out...

isn't there a potential conflict of interest here? If Whiteley is/was Gwin's agent, while also running the TWR team, that would be a problem... If so, Gwin has likely done the right thing... anyway, was he Gwin's agent?

He's fine. Racing sunday. Check his twitter feed for a photo of his face with a gouge in it! What place was he at the splits??

Sweet PVC shock! Must be new technology. Seriously, looks hot. Wonder what it weighs.

is that for sure - Nick Beer on Devinci? his name wasn't listed on their WC team, so I wasn't sure they could add him?

bummed but stoked is right. i think ultimately a 2 part series was doomed - e.g. even snowboarding had to eventually fold and full under the FIS umbrella. i do think freecaster did a mostly good job, and it's tough to see them not around to reap some of the rewards of what they helped create. still, solid coverage via redbull should be rad.

Brook has since tweeted that he was riding moto with Blenki and borrowed some old gear. I guess we'll have to wait a little longer...

Brook has since tweeted that he was riding Moto with Blenky and simply borrowed some old gear... And here we are making up stories! I think I believe him... Could he join Trek with Gwin? Different personalities for sure...

I love that people can have a reasonable discussion on this forum. I think I was wrong. This new series will kick ass. Seeing full runs of the top 20 is all I ever want anyway and we'll get it here. Big prize money ensures the big guns will be there. Can't wait.
