1. Start a fund for riders who are injured competing. Kind of like Aflac but they don't have to pay in to it. 2. Disappear

admittedly I did not read all of the comments however I have experience with this so I figured I'd share. I dented my i9 enduro rim badly in two places and the tire would not seal. I took the tire off then put it in a truing stand and started bending ... more ยป

YT is a proven winner, just not in DH.

What about charging $5 for every live feed? Have that money go straight to rider safety and secondarily to better purses. Red bull gets to splash their logo on everything and we pay the riders something for their risk. Honestly, I'd feel better watching...more

The guy that started it seems engaged in our community so most likely it is but you never know. I read that Pauls family is going to put a fund together.

Truth
only for components really needed to make the switch
no special compatible frame needed
no wire
modular batteries
45min charging
simple shifting
home run

No way, not over the top if it works well. I can see having that and moving to a 34 up front... well actually who am I kidding. I just dropped to a 28t xx1 set up from a 32t and love it. So I'd see if I could do 30t or 32t w/ this. That'd be rad. Less spin out more granny. Sounds good to me.

No nonsense guide to protect your investment

Rating:

The Good: Light'ish (i have the alloy version, also comes in carbon). Quiet Super easy install looks great protects your chain ring added peace of mind

The Bad: Not cheap but relative to other bike parts its a bargain

Overall:

I have used an XX1 setup since it came out. Originally with a 32t ring up front and no guide. The narrow-wide ring + the clutch does wonders for keeping your chain on however its by far not guaranteed to stay on. In the past 3'ish years I've dropped my chain probably 5 times and I noticed it had become much more frequent as the chain aged. After a chain swap i found it was tight as can be yet I was still clocking my ring on rocks and such. Something like this guide is the perfect solution. It fits rings down to 26 in size (now I'm using a 28), the install took literally 5 min without evening having to remove my cranks, it's very quiet and there is no possible way I can see my chain pop off. Add in some ring protection and you have yourself a great investment. Speaking of, it isn't cheap... but what is in the MTB world. At least it is cheaper than new carbon cranks. I'm very happy w/ what the guys at MRP put together. Great product.

Have you seen the new Tirner RFX floating around? Saw a couple on the Thursday before the EWS race last week in the park. Bike looked amazing. Carbon, slack and low. It was black with chrome decals
