Agreed. Situations like this, where I'm clearly not there, it seems best to hear what other racers think of this. Consensus appears to be "bullshit".

White tapegate is going to be talked about a lot, its pretty clear only 1 other rider had a tough time...more

Aye

I have been running a set of ENVE AMs since i got my Tallboy1 8 years back. OK the bike had an easy life until 3 years ago and we moved to Hong Kong, where things got rootier and rockier. No broken spokes or re-tensioning from day 1. But i have just been going through the comments on PB, could the rim width be a factor? Would a skinnier rim saved the SL?

Have just watched Wyn Masters giving our 1600-1800+ Euros to privateers at the recent EWS round. All made up of donations and Shimano topping things up as well. Maybe things are turning the right way round...

In all honesty, the Pros are supposedly being paid a salary and getting various bonuses etc and it is very likely the Pros are the ones who will be in the top 5. Why not scrap the prize money for pros and then dish out prize money for the non-fulltime/semi-pro ... more »

Just seen that DT Swiss has released an official (there were way to do this before now apparently) kit to switch from pawls to a their more reliable crown wheel type freewheel for about $100, but it comes with their lowest engagement (18T) crown wheels, so you need to about another $100 to get the 54T upgrade.

They don't say which model of DT Swiss hub is on those wheels, but it looks like it's the 370, which is one of their lower spec hubs. Also the 240/350 use a crown wheel type freewheel and the 370 uses paws, which are not as reliable, in this case, when compared to the crown wheels found in the 240/350 hubs.

Added a comment about product review Tested: Kali Protectives Maya Helmet 5/6/2021 9:12 PM
Aye

Just upgraded from a 1st generation to the 3rd generation Maya. Your head sits in the helmet lot more now and the padding is more sparse and not as comfy, but i guess that due to their new crash protection features. The extra venting does its job well and dial clicker for getting the fit just right, is an improvement. The front edge of the helmet does sit a little too low for my liking and i feel that i spend more time looking down the trail passed that front edge more than i used to, but if that is a trade off for better protection, then fair enough can happily live with that. Plus i still don't get sweat dripping down into my eyes. I would buy another.

You are actually free to have fun in NZ and ride how you want. Each lift pass comes with a guy ironically named Paver. He follows you around with a shovel. Keeps you happy and him employed.

While I agree with your sentiments on UCI giving close to zero f*cks about DH, it can be argued that without Redbull, UCI could very well reduce DH even further or remove it from overall broadcasts. With all it's faults, Redbull has done a lot for our sport many other potential...more

LOL, i had had the same idea about the shorty when i mentioned the MM just now, but i haven't riden the shorty, but yeah, i see what you mean.

Totally agree, its maybe why i am loving the Magic Mary's. Its not quite what you mean i think, but good ol square edged knobs grip.

Still running the Marys front and rear. The rear, obviously rolls better with up to 4psi more than I would run a DHR2, though the grip is not really effected by the increase of pressure.

By running a gearbox, you get a more centralized weight distribution, slightly stabilized weight as well, I think (?).

Update - I just tried a Magic Mary upfront and as well out back (both orange compound). On the mellower trails with not much of a descent, i thought my rear brake was dragging. I could feel the bike slowing down due to the tyre drag. BUT when gravity ... more »
