Dave reiterated many times, it's not always your suspension which is to blame. And while tech tips are great, this is a focus on specific tools and how they are applied to improving the rider/bike/track harmony.

Added a comment about video Greg Minnaar is on Another Level - Fort William Winning Run 6/7/2017 4:13 AM
C138x104

Yes and no. Yes, because Minnaar had won here 6 times already, and two in a row until this run. No, because he won by almost three seconds and it looked startlingly effortless (which is of course not true, but visually it was impressive), and his rolling speed/momentum was also something that could be seen.

On a related note: this is insanely impressive to watch. I was floored when I watched this the first time...and always will be.

TOTW was so sick. That is a proper "crown jewel" trail.
Whistler is life-changing.

Vaults continue to bel the best thing going for large-brand options. The T-Macs are a killer option too. Burtec are still the boutique benchmark. Flat for life, clips are for kooks.

Don't misunderstand why Loic doesn't like the 29'er. Yes faster is faster, but he is coming from the standpoint of "why go faster"? If it is an advantage now, but then everyone adopts the wheel size, it just means that everyone would then just be going even faster - which is hard to fathom. To see the speed in person, and see the unfortunate moments when things go wrong at that speed...Loic's view point is reasonable. And he's not the only one. The hype of the big wheel is hype, and there will be some more to come other than SC, but we're not going to see a whole-sale overhaul of things just yet. It is important to hear passionate riders discuss topics like this openly, and I think it's commendable that he put himself out there on the subject. Only the time will tell on Sunday!
