Common guys - everyone knows....once you go black, ya don't go back!

Most of the sentiment I have seen was more so that he got massively underscored - not necessarily that he should have won. I would have a pretty hard time arguing with that and it was not the first fishy score IMO. The judges clearly have gobs of street ... more »

Reply to Does the New UCI President Really Care About MTB? 9/21/2017 1:13 PM

Seems pretty clear that MTB and Road need separate governing bodies. Scopes, consumer base and event demands for each are so different. Anyone who acts surprised that the new UCI Pres could give a flying funk about MTB clearly has not been paying any ... more »

Reply to Should There Be a 29er DH Class and 27.5 DH Class at World Cups? 6/12/2017 11:02 AM

This "looks lame" thing is such BS IMO....and slippery slope. Should riders still be on V-brakes..er... canti's....er...drum brakes? Ft sus only ...er fully ridgid? That would look way more loose. What about modern geo? Longer front centers create way ... more »

Can someone address 27.5 vs 29 wheel aerodynamics and drag when attempting to cut thru a midge swarm? Seems like smaller wheels will win out? Keep your chin's up boys... ;-)

Sometimes this industry just can't help itself - DH Bike sales (and the industry as a whole) are already suffering. After the race this weekend or Ft. Bill, when 29ers leave 650b in the dust....no one in their right mind will be plunking down 4k-9k for ... more »

The MTB gods speakith: "All ye commoners take note of thy large wheels of royalty and prepare yourself for Ft Williams. I give you 5 weeks time" PS: Only 7 rounds and no throw-aways. Something needs to be done about that.

Reply to Should There Be a 29er DH Class and 27.5 DH Class at World Cups? 4/27/2017 12:54 PM

Ill tell you one thing 29er DH bikes *might* ruin: DH bike sales for the entire industry for 2017. DOA. Kaput. Finnito. Laters pajama boys. Just as the selling season gets underway. If all the hype about 29er times proves true and the 29er posse puts ... more »

I caught that contradiction as well. Interesting difference in philosophy. Car's, moto's and other vehicles all seem heavily dependent on damping....but who knows...maybe bikes are different enough. The initial reports on this new suspension design seem ... more »

Reads like an Onion headline: "Guy who does work for company, says their bikes are best ever." It's certainly intriguing and damn rad to see something different from VPP/DW, horst, or single pivot. Some of the geo numbers are a bit interesting, but I ... more »

I heard Remy will be running some wheels that won the world cup overall last year.

Word on the street is that the Fox / Shimano BFF relationship (which competed with SRAM/Rockshox) soured a few years ago. As more and more suspension players are on the market and hungry to make inroads, expect to see more teams/riders taking deals from ... more »

Wow - SRAM looses Specialized factory, that is big news after they lost Gwin last year and considering how close SRAM is with Specialized. Makes you wonder if they are having $ issues despite taking Shimano to school on 1x sales the past few years. Is ... more »

YT is on TRP - Not Formula. Speaking of the Cura, I had a chance to ride those a few times now. They are the first mineral oil brake from Formula and I have to say....they were amazing. Let's remember these guys test stuff before making decisions....so ... more »
