I know he has his own signature bar from Enve, but they offer a 50mm rise x 810mm wide M9 dh bar now. The higher rise would also preserve reach as the stem has to come back towards the rider is it gets raised up.

Or just run the old 810/Zee pads that don't have the fins

Looks like the top crown is too low and it's hitting the top tube. I'd add spacers under the crown and run a lower rise bar or stem (Renthal offer both) to keep bar height consistent. If they're concerned with that shortening the cockpit then go with a longer stem or an offset headset. Puzzle it!

Better double-check the work bench for the bleed nipple cover

Something I keep forgetting to say....how crazy good is Martin Whitely as a scout? Angel looked the the one he missed, but nope. In the hunt, young, stylish....and poised to be another one to watch for years to come.

Also Gee is a beast.

Well the series is sponsored by Mercedes Benz this year, so that's definitely been a big move in the right direction. Hopefully team sponsorships will follow

I forget which year (2006 or 2007 probably) but I was there for Vanderhams massive hip/transfer/quarter/table thingy. He had to be almost as high as Messere. Landed it first run but absolutely blew up on the second lap. Still one of the masters of changing direction in the air and getting super flattened out.

Most systems are designed to encourage air to collect vertically, so if you're going to do this the brake levers should be in a fairly normal position, somewhere between 45 degrees and parallel to the ground.

CE certification and product labeling would indicate that this is going to launch very soon. My main issue with Reverbs is initial build quality. Once I rebuild them they usually run great for the full service interval, but the OE builds are typically less than perfect. Hopefully they can improve their quality control/best practices.

So all loam is the same regardless of location? Once you remove top soil in the East Coast it will be identical to the dirt that's under the topsoil in the PNW? I'm not debating the definition of loam. I'm saying that the equal sand/silt/clay ratio you mentioned will only be found in certain areas of the world.

Dirt composition varies widely depending on location. There's no such thing as 'normal' dirt, because it will be totally different depending on where you are.

Agreed. Until they come ride a fresh trail in the PNW during prime conditions, they'll never know the true meaning of such a sacred word. Maybe its a good thing; if they think that jank is 'loam', then maybe they won't come clog our trails looking for it. In the words of Mr Burns, "Let them have their Tar Tar sauce".

The battle to save the word "loam" has been lost.
