"I'd do it for free." What class. Great interview. I say just go out and qualify first at the first race and just know that you can make it your first win.

That design is 90% internal anyway and as Daniel says, it will never pop out/protrude like other full external ones do.

frame design precludes it. External posts with the cable fixed at the post collar are the best anyway. No need for internal routing (which is pure vanity) and the cable loop doesn't move into the line of fire of your rear tire like it does with a external post with the cabled...more

I was out riding and ran into a Dad on his E'-bike and he had a strap and was towing his son (on a 24" F/S bike) up the hills..I thought it was pretty sweet.

Ya & with the difficulty of YT parts / warranty claims. Not sure I'd buy a first generation carbon e-bike from YT when Specialized is in the same price range with years in the ebike market.

Constructive. Glad the idea of getting people (who are restricted by age or health) on bikes with their friends/family causes you to feel ill. Thanks for joining the discussion.

Yeah I dunno...was going for something not-quite-like the usual enduro garb to point out that the shoes are a bit different...guess I'll forever have to live in infamy now.

That would be applicable if controlling the point at which the front wheel locked was the issue but it isn’t

I've always thought of it as a modulation thing. With a larger rotor I find it harder to keep the rear wheel just below the point of breaking traction. Last year I was running a 200f/180r setup and never felt like the rear didn't have enough power and was very satisfied with being able to control the rear wheel locking up. My current rig has 200s front and rear (and the same brakeset) and I find myself skidding around unintentionally a lot more even after 4 months with the larger rotor.

at the press launch today i was told that because DVO doesn't have any XC-specific products and had no plans to develop any, that was the main decision behind the switch. the DH/enduro crew was stoked on the DVO stuff and just learned about the switch a week or so ago.
