Scott 11 Team at World Champs Not Hiding Something - How Did You Miss It? - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

One of these bikes is not like the other. We tried to give you some hints earlier on during the World Champs slideshows (slide #14) but you didn't take the bait.

    Easy! Floriane's Fox 40 is a factory team one!

    Lol they even deleted my anti-605b-comment. All butthurt because nobody cares for their desperate marketing of 650b.

    You can try to ignore it LK, but its only a matter of time (like less than two years) that bigger wheels will be in DH solidly. It just makes too much sense for many reasons.....;-)

    reson 1: how can we sell more bikes

  • Morpheous

    Actually, its how can we go faster over rough terrain, technical progression.

    That's what marketing-spindoctors want to make you believe.

    Its what those of us that are already using them already know.....

    That's what your gear queerness wants to make you believe. At what races did you better your results with them wheels exactly and how did you measure it?

    didnt realise you were winning everything and needed the sport to get faster? aren't we going fast enough?

  • Morpheous

    9/5/2012 2:01 PM

    Nope, you can go faster, with more traction and control, over rougher terrain with the larger diameter wheels. Until you have ridden them you cannot understand. They will revolutionize the sport. (with or without you cling-ons!) ;-)

    not that nobody took the bait, its that nobody f#8kin cares. Sven Martin is a wheel-baiting controversy seeder.

    CARBON!!!!

    Maybe we missed it because no one into downhill should care about 650b or 29ers.

    Should have known when Claudio came down with a rear flat on such a smooth bike park course.

  • iceman2058

    HA! Yeah I'm guessing that was the last thing they wanted to happen when racing the 650b DH for the first time...

    You guys are rediculous. Plenty of riders flatted over the week. Claudio DID NOT flat. his tire rolled off on the wallride, just like Neethling. Unlike Neethling his tire was glued to the rim. Hence it rolled off properly. The G-Out was just too great for 1.8 bar. The fact that his rim was plenty strong for the rest of the track without tire is a good advertisement for 650B in my opinion. I deal in facts.

    It is an opinion not a fact unless you are Scott R&D

  • iceman2058

    I didn't say he flatted because of the wheel. I said it's the last thing they wanted to happen when running a new wheel size.
