Troy running what looks to be some type of telemetry device at national champs. Measuring braking forces maybe? View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aaron Pelttari (@aaron_yo01) on Apr 5, 2019 at 9:30pm PDT

Longer frames and larger wheels are where the extra weight would come from. For comparison, Minnaar's 2011 worlds bike weighed in at 15.87 kg https://www.sicklines.com/2011/04/01/santa-cruz-syndicate-preps-for-world-cup-greg-minnaar-bike-check/

Google reckons Danny is 178cm which I believe is similar to Gwin. So not that short. For comparison, Troy Brosnan is 167cm and he's said 29ers are a no go. Riders below 170cm maybe the perfect candidates for a 27.5/29 combo. Although I'd wager that no ... more »

Danny Hart testing in Portugal. Rumours is he’s riding the 29er Myst all year. Is Danny the shortest rider making the full time switch to 29?

According to the Santa Cruz website, 2019 is the first year Burgtec has been an official sponsor of the Syndicate. Not sure why they decided to cover the logos last year though as Burgtec parts have been appearing on Syndicate bikes for years.

Not sure how much I trust Syndicate numbers given they're a bunch of trolls but here are the nerd numbers off their latest insta story. Greg's XL V10 has a wheelbase of 133cm in the long setting and a buzzworks headset. Tire pressures are 28psi rear
