I can't disagree, but we should be excited that Snowbird is seeing the value in mountain biking, and get excited that this could lead to bigger things from them. The terrain that is available there could lead to incredible things, so let's speak up and encourage them to not give up and help...more

I guess that's possible. I always thought carbon was stiffer, but I'm no engineer.

I have had a few pairs of the new DSP grips and they are hands down my favorites. I have used 2 pair of the 30.3 diameter ones on different bikes and then replaced one pair with the 32.3mm ones. Cutting the grips off didn't bother me, but getting the old double sided tape off was a p.i.t.a.

Also, the 32.3 ones easily feel as big as the Lizard Skin North Shore grips I used to use. Really can't imagine anyone needing ones any bigger in diameter than those...

Selling direct to the customer is great for keeping prices down, but the shops that will inevitably have to work on these bikes need to be selling them to stay afloat. Sweet looking bike, but their business model shits on the guys the customers will be relying on for the...more

Game changer?

Complete bikes with no dealer network, that are available exclusively through mail order?

Sounds more like a solution to a problem that doesn't exist...

Love the steel tubing in the front triangle. Strange they would reduce the shock's air volume with spacers in a high volume can. Why not just use a standard can?

For some reason, really glad a 26'" DH bike won it.

Sounds like the dirt is loose and slippery with wide turns.. big wheels could be just the ticket for more traction. Monster-truckaloto!

Rocky's suspension is called Smoothlink, and while it looks very similar to a FSR Horst link design, it is not one. With Smoothlink that chainstay pivot is located slightly above the rear axle and thus does not violate FSR patents.
