I've had great luck with the higher level SRAM XX1 chains. I have 3 that I use in rotation on 2 different bikes and have a ton of miles on them.

Not to discount Gwin's World Cup wins, but where are all of his World Champ jerseys? Sam was consistent in the overall race series and also consistently won Word Champs - twice as a Junior and 3 times in Elites.

I don't think anyone fully comprehends how loony Gee is. To come back from that sort of thing this fast and qualify? Gee is officially a synonym for the word "savage".

I assure you that the gents testing this concept (Transition, FOX, RockShox, Chris Porter, etc) know exactly what's up. I'd like to think I do as well, having been at this testing game for several years. The back-to-back process typically reveals all.

Seems to me that Mark Wallace had one of the best results of anyone that qualified in the top 20.

They are quite different, so be sure to have a read of the Evil Calling review: http://www.vitalmtb.com/product/guide/Bikes,3/Evil/Calling-Eagle-X0,18117#product-reviews/2636

Nope, I think that's exactly what they said. Not making 30.9 and 31.6 options should result in a lower score.

I honestly can't understand the confusion. The shock stroke is clearly stated as 50mm. The exposed shaft could be 50mm, 70mm, or 100mm, but again, it's clearly stated that the stroke is 50mm and that is the number you would take the percentage of to calculate sag - which is also given online/in the manual.

When other rims survive much longer than one day of riding in the same terrain at the same speeds, that certainly reflects on the quality of Giant's rims.

Nope, 460mm for the large in the low setting.
