    Every XC bike's worse nightmare: being bought by a DHer for "quiet traildays"...

    Wait a minute. Kyle Strait rides xc? Nice.

    And I hope that was filmed on legal trails, with the approval of all appropriate governmental authorities.

    8mm-ish. I dig it.

    Dirt_drifter, it says right there that they plan to unveil the brakes later today. I expect we'll learn more then.

    I like that video treatment... kind of dreamy. I didn't learn a lot about the brakes, though.
