Slightly off topic, but a quick note regarding a few "bike parks are too easy, think of the children" comments: Oisin O'Callaghan who just swept junior WC DH grew up at the bottom of Ireland's (possibly the world's) easiest bike park (his dad was involved ... more »

The plastic piece of protection bolted/glued to the bottom of the downtube that goes from the BB up about halfway the DT. It serves to protect your frame from rocks thrown up by the front wheel. It's purpose is exactly the same as a wrap.

Thank you for clarifying exactly which part of your sentence was the insult, and throwing another one in there for good measure. I'm not particularly bothered, just a bit thrown back at how polarized and aggressive people are getting about completely inconsequential things.

Can't believe this is still being debated... So let's throw another view into the void. Rules are rules, but they shouldn't be applied in an algorithmic manner. Upon breach the incident should be reviewed by a human and then a decision made. In this ... more »

Maybe the "DH is the formula one of MTB" isn't such a simplistic saying after all. After the grim donut video, I read a few comments saying brands should build up race specific one off bikes... Looking at those numbers it seems to almost be the case. ... more »

Yeah I'm definitely an OCD cry baby for spending an hour every 3-4 years effectively doing preventive maintenance... Do you guys also remove those downtube protectors all bikes come with?

I got double whammy of grief from friends because I have an eMTB and I bought a ridewrap kit for my levo SL, it looks amazing (matte finish) and is protecting my frame from the wicked sharp brush we have in so cal. I am glad I purchased.

I didn't realise some people did not wrap their frames, I would even wrap my second hand entry level aluminium frames, there is literally nothing to lose apart from 30 minutes to an hour of time and around 50 bucks for a big roll of helicopter tape.

Back to the Alex Fayolle announcement: Didn't he announce this at the start of the season? It made for biggish news on the french forums as it was a really emotional announcement, where he talked about having "stolen" his win in Lourdes. Effectively ... more »

Added reply in a thread Should the UCI do more double headers? (in non-pandemic years) 10/16/2020 12:10 AM

Seeing as I can't watch it during work hours and a race coverage takes forever (3-4hrs, minimum 2hrs if you want to be sure not to miss the winner's run in case he is badly seeded) I'm not totally convinced about a full double header format. But, I was ... more »

Great start to the thread, a whole bunch of nonsense! I think the syndicate would be nuts to let Vergier go, he is the best performing but also the most entertaining with his goofy funny style. They know it too with how much they put him into their edits. ... more »

Loïc over the stumps was bananas. For anyone who doesn’t speak French, the quote from the dude immediately following is: ‘Go bring a bottle of champagne to Öhlins. And say thank you. Motherfu....’
