I think I like that look better than any of the other two looks so far. Very nice.

Added a comment about video THAT WAS CLOSE! Cyclist Almost Hit by a Train 10/3/2013 11:26 AM
He saw the gates, he was going around them to beat the train. If you look, there is a cyclist, in a bike lane on the other side of the track. From the other cyclist, you can tell that this video's unlikely hero was way outside the bike lane, in an attempt to go around the gate.
He suffers from what I call, "bikes are allowed onto the road, therefore they mys be just as capable as cars, therefore, I can act the same way that I do when I drive a car." syndrome. It afflicts many road going cyclists all over the world. It results in run lights and dead bikers. Please, help stop the madness, and give me ridiculous amounts of money, so i can do research into medicine to fight the syndrome. I will need to buy a new $10,000 road bike every week for this research. Thank you.

How well does the DB Air match up with the Avalanche Cartridge? Does it feel like it has equal performance?

How deep does the water need to be to jump into it like that?

Perhaps I am mistaken, but it seems like they cut the pedal section shorter than it was last year, and added some more time in the woods, and a lot more jumps.

How do those Sapim CX-Ray spokes hold up? Are they as good as DT Swiss competition spokes?

Looks like a DHX Air. I'm sure they are changing the Damping, but come on Fox, I doubt it will be as good a DH air shock as the High volume layout found on the DB air, Vivid air, Swinger Pro, and Void. Until Fox makes an air shock that has a body that is very different from their enduro offering, I'm not really interested. Only way to change my mind is to have a shootout between this Prototype (once it is in production) and a DB Air or Void. Just my opinion though.

Sam Pilgrim on a triple crown fork, dh bike? Whaaat?? Anyway, Sam had some nice style on the big bike. I bet if he spent some more time on one riding the DH tracks in Europe that he could become a Rampage podium threat. He just needs to get more comfortable on the Big Bike Terrain!

I think that dual slalom and 4x could get a lot more love from the mountain bike community if the tracks were built a little more like a "dual lane DH course" or a really wide DH track that could handle 4 riders at a time. Not only to I think those type of tracks would be easier to build and maintain, but the level of riding would force racers to choose between BMX and MTB, since it would require a MTB skill set to win over a BMX skill set. And I think it would be even more fun to watch.

Added a comment about video When Roadies Do MTB... Meet the Pinarello Dogma XM 7/12/2013 11:32 AM
"All MTB manufacturers build their own frames on the assumption that the fork should rotate 360-degrees. This forces them to stretch the main triangle, inevitably compromising its own natural stiffness, contrary to that of road frames."
Four arguments on this statement. One, since when are road bikes the pinnacle of bicycle strength? I thought that when they hit random dogs in the road they crumble. Second, since MTB is a different beast with different needs, why make it into a road bike with suspension and knobby tires (didn't they already do that in the 1960's and 70's?)
Third, not all mountain bikes have 360 degrees of fork movement. Apparently the Pinarello staff with "unquestioned mountain biking experience" has never heard of Downhill MTB racing, or Freeride MTB. And finally, this incredibly experienced staff has never heard of Slopestyle MTB, where you need your fork to move 360 degrees in order to do many tricks.
Once again, I can't help but think that roadies are very stuck up and ignorant.
