Jeebus that video is awesome, Commencal really filling in that empty hole where vital raws used to reside. Can we start a quickstarter to just send Amaury and FrixFrix around to the various WC tracks with 10 videographers?

Just read it in a French accent, it will make perfect sense! whistling
OK so I did proof read 'most' of it but in my defense I'm pretty much half French and definitely more than halfway towards fully senile, so there you have it. Guilty as charged.

Now I'm wondering whether or not to fix it, I...more

Sweet looking bike, but considering the geo and weight, wouldn't adding 10mm travel and unifying the range make sense? Just how extreme is the AM going to be next week?

Looks really nice, but there is a serious price creep going on, most of the models don't really count as "good value" due to some cheapish components. I guess they have to pay for those weekly sick videos and the massive DH team somehow!

Will we ever see anyone as loose as Blenki on 26" wheels ever again? His jeyrsey being 2 sizes too big just adds to the awesome factor.

I have a completely unsubstantiated theory that the equipment back then wasn't up to today's speed: wheelsize, suspension and tyres in particular have come a long way. Not sure the grip was good enough to handle the speeds that a longer bike would have allowed.

Added reply in a thread When/will enduro racing become as intense as DH? 4/20/2020 12:32 AM

Disagree entirely with the premise: Top guys in enduro are either guys who have won a DH WC race: Hill, Maes, Rude; or guys who grew up full enduro: Nicolai, Dailly, Tordo. Maybe there are some guys in the EWS top 20 that started riding pro late, and ... more »

$65 with no middle man strikes me as kinda expensive. MAP (minimum advertised price) for most Maxxis models is less than $70. A direct to consumer cost of $45-$50 would put them on par with the wholesale pricing of the the most expensive mtb tires available.

To answer your title question: not beyond mid-range GX/XT. Similarly for full bikes, I always go for the lowest or second lowest build and upgrade little by little. Regarding your actual points which are with regards to destroying rims and derailleurs. ... more »

I agree with the crowd, if you just bought an entry level bike: 1) Dropper post, ideally 150mm or more. 2) Tyres, 1kg of more for 29er tyres for proper riding I disagree with a comment above about SRAM brakes, I have the entry level levers on both my
