Not sure, it would have been unfair for Gwin to lose the entire championship due to rain had the points been closer.

So, looking at the curves this gives you less midstroke support at the same level of bottomout pressure?

That's not really what I'm looking for, but besides that it looks like a very useful add on.

nothing against sam but his best result in the last 2 seasons has been 20th*. honestly not surprised he wasn't chosen and not sure how sam and VdS go hand in hand - he's never won there and his best result was 3rd*...8 years ago. *this is using his results ... more ยป

The pattern is available, but the GRP40 rubber isn't out yet. Your only choice at the moment is 65/55 in 27.5, which is a bit hard even for a mud tire on the WC.

it seems the yt is much closer to his last bike than his last bike was to the bike before that. change can be difficult but i don't think it's going to be as drastic as before.

ditto. i'm just under 6' and still use a 3" GD. at that drop my thighs don't go past parallel with the ground while seated and the crank at 12 o'clock (so i can still actually pedal) and i have plenty of room for maneuverability. i want my seat out of the way but not feel like it's been removed.

So i might be odd man out, but who's dropping their posts 150-170mm? Honest question, I'm 5' 8" so maybe it a tall person thing? I don't drop my post more than 4" ever and have been trying to wrap my head around the need for such big...more

rattlers all over these parts. in 25 yrs of riding i've seen maybe 3 and heard maybe 3 more. they're out there but never seem to be the terror i read about year after year.

brakes. specifically lever reach and pull. i like a decent amount of pull before engagement.

Didn't Aaron explain that the modified link and the air shock on the Demo was to make it more progressive?
