Added reply in a thread Where is the Head Angle Sweetspot for Enduro/Trail? 2/14/2019 4:07 AM

I have to admit to be part of the hypocrisy: I rolled my eyes at canyon's 66 headangle on a 2019 enduro race bike, especially considering the shapeshifter. But... The slackest enduro bike I have owned is my commencal meta with 66, my previous 2 bikes ... more »

Right, but generally a rumour is something that is going around, not something I just made up like "Minnaar back on Honda, I 100% garantee it". In previous years there was an industry insider releasing information as comics for us to decode, a lot of ... more »

That's not really a theory, based on the syndicate, commencal and Gee's posts they clearly have an eye on things, at the very least they need to make sure info doesn't leak (Do you remember when Sam Hill's move to CRC was leaked weeks before the intended ... more »

After watching the bryceland video, all I care about now is what bike he is going to use for DH, as it seemed clear to me that will be his racing focus based on how he formulated his answer. Will Cannondale give him a DH proto, a Claymore proto/pre-prod ... more »

I would add that myself and a few friends all noticed that TLD shorts sizing changed around 2016, we all bought a second pair of shorts (skyline I think), after loving the fit of the 2014-2015 ones and found the newer ones to be 1-2 sizes too big :/

By the time I caught up on all the posts before it, the post above mine was 3 minutes old, and I still refreshed the page to see if anything new had leaked, this obsession is verging on a disease!

Except that Ebikes are really awesome as a trail building and maintenance tool.

Maybe people will just learn to accept them because once people put some time in on ebikes they will realize that both non and assist bikes are good.

They sure aren't going away.

I have the proframe and really like it for the weight, you can wear it for ages without issue. I had to wear a full face for extended periods in enduro races previously, and I always ended up with neck pain and cramps, dont think this would happen with ... more »

I remember having the same feeling last year, most of the footage before the finals weekend was from instagram. I think they purposefully limit the press coverage of the preparation stage to keep up interest. I can kinda see how if they showed the same 4-5 lines all week and riders hitting most of their lines it would take away from the finals. Still, the media blackout is a bit weird...

I voted for loris' Fox kit, but at the same time found Bruni's to be the ugliest!

Added reply in a thread The Mystery of the Bead Monster 6/18/2018 9:17 AM

Weird, in my case it was more the sidewall than the bead, but I think the issue was pretty similar: I guess that whatever lining is inside the rubber has ripped leading to overly strechy tyres?
