It's hard to tell from the angle of the photo but, nothing is actually touching the chain. They cover the inside of the guide with the soft part of velcro to help make the bike quieter. This way if the chain contacts the guide when it's getting bounced around, it's slapping against that instead of the hard plastic guide.

It amazes me how quiet DH bikes are these days. DH bikes used to sound as if they were falling apart as they went past.

I like how silent everybody is watching Hart slay that section in the last clip. I can only imagine there was a section full of people with dropped jaws.

probably not a coincidence Nasty. Yeti probably read your comment and upped the travel when you showed them the light.

This looks like a really cool bike, but I think it should be speced with the Float X across the whole line, not just on the highest end carbon one.

It's an old BMX term. Yes, you can Dead Sailor into a crash, and logically the going down with the ship metaphor makes perfect sense, but having a crash isn't actually part of the original definition. http://bmx.transworld.net/1000080788/features/a-bmx-dictionary-for-outsiders/

Dead Sailor just means you look really stiff/awkward/unstylish in the air.

Because it has nothing to with weight. Not supporting the decision for a new "standard", just making the point that the size was chosen to maintain chainline, not based on weight.

What everybody else was already said, however if there are any rough edges I prefer using an ignition file to fine grit sandpaper. Makes it easier to more precise, plus they are super cheap and a handy addition to your tool box. ignition file

The new 36 works with a 20mm or a 15mm axle, there are spacers that come with the fork. Graves has a 15mm axle with the spacers.
