We did some shooting on bmw and stigmata, but we weren't really able to give the trails justice. And i agree, theres a ton of natural potential at creek, the new step up on ninety-nine is pretty sweet!

pretty sure that weird Redalp DH bike also uses a floating idler, still unique nonetheless.

32 pounds!?! Scary. I would have to guess those are single ply hans damphs set up tubeless. Definitely curious to see if thats true, especially with the aluminum frame. Really good looking build spec on both though.

Maxxis Descendant Tire on Syndicate Bikes

Descendant was the name of the High Roller II before they went into full production, and that almost looks to be what they have here. I actually ran a set of "Descendants" not too long ago, definitely get a lot of questions about them.

in a sense, basically there was a steep chute into a right hand corner into the stream, its about 2 feet deep in the middle, i just took the corner at good speed and kinda plowed on through to the other side of the trail. We had been shooting for a while and i just wanted to cool off in the stream, but we decided to get a shot of it and it came out pretty cool!

Added a comment about video New Angle of Aaron Gwin's World Champs Crash 9/10/2012 11:05 AM

"came in too hot of the drop." Yes, because his brakes failed. You can see his hands go straight to the bars when he reached for them in the other angle. Gwin has crashed before in his race run (Val d'Isere I believe) and doesn't blame it on his bike. Why would shimano have people thinking that their brakes fail if it was in actuality just rider error?

For the people who think that his brakes were somehow rigged to fail, don't you think they would do something that wouldn't potentially kill him? Maybe a cut link in the chain? This is why his brakes are prototypes and not in production. Nothing fishy here, except a defect in design.
