Hey there, I used to race on different german national downhill teams and retired in 2012. I'm since then team manager of the PROPAIN factory racing team. Here are some advice how I got on teams in the past and how you would probably get team managers like me to notice ... more ยป

Check out the SIXPACK Kamikaze Wheelset: http://www.sixpack-shop.com/index.php?page=product&info=1106 They are available in 150x12 and 135x12. Strong and not too heavy. I can really recommend them!

I get your point. In Germany we have the so so-called "PROPAIN Friends" programm. To take part in this programm owners of PROPAIN bikes register with their bike (model, modelyear and size) and we from PROPAIN Bikes arrange test-rides with potential buyers so they can sit and ride on the bike to see if it is the right size. Where are you from?

Here are the TT length and reach of the TYEE in size L in comparison to a Specilized Enduro for example:

TYEE TT length: 596mm
TYEE reach: 440mm
Specialized Enduro TT length: 623mm
Specialized Enduro reach: 460mm

In my opinion the ratio of the TT length to reach is fine and correct. It is true indeed, that we keep your frames in comparison to other bikes a bit short to assure a playful and agile handling on the trails as well as a comfortable and relaxed position for the uphills.

Works fine without a chainguide. I use a X.0 Type-2 rear derailleur and therefore the chain is tensed enough. It weights 14,9 KG.
