I have to admit, the story behind that photo interests me more than the story behind these soap opera cartoons.

No I don't hate Riffle, But... I do think that there are way better riders than him that should be with big teams like Giant. And yes I know he is with Giant now but I am not sure how long he will stay with it, specially with the strong young riders coming up. I know that Riffle is super committed, hard worker and more but he is just not in that level.

Literally the entire thread has to do with sponsorship of athletes? Who knows?

Perhaps more importantly- who cares?

Brook has since tweeted that he was riding Moto with Blenky and simply borrowed some old gear... And here we are making up stories! I think I believe him... Could he join Trek with Gwin? Different personalities for sure...

Can't say I didn't see that coming. SRAM has really cut down on their sponsorship. The rims appear to be darker so I think Enve is still a go.

YOU'RE RIGHT. THIS IS RIDICULOUS. IT'S UP TO OTHER PEOPLE TO KEEP IT "REAL" SO I'M NOT SURE HOW TO "REEL" THESE CHUMPS BACK IN? MAYBE BY CONFIRMING THAT SYNDICATE IS GOING TO BE RUNNING KOOKA CRANKS.

BOS, BOS, BOS! and whoever else for the rest. I'd like to see more variety in the US market. And for that matter, I'm getting tired of waiting for an X Fusion downhill fork.

Presumably with all the effort they've put into making the V10 light, they will still want a good air option for the shock....Cane Creek with the new double barrel air?

I am not an account expert, but it seems you are right, I just checked on a dedicated website and.....
A trade court decision allowed the company to still run their business in November 2010, certainly due to better 2010 results compare to catastrophic 2009.
I just hope 2011 will be even better for them.
