Added a comment about press release The All-New 2020 Rocky Mountain Slayer Unveiled 8/13/2019 2:10 AM

That may change with the new slayer though. I wouldn't call it a freeride bike, it looks to be as capable as any other enduro rig.

160lbs 180mm travel. No spacers 65psi 10 lsc, 14 hsc, 6 out on both rebounds. If it gets steep I'll add a couple lsc. If its fast with big hits I'll add 1-2 hsc. So yeah the base settings aren't too far off for pressure and rebound. If my local trails ... more »

I think the spring is the most important factor. If you try to compensate for the spring with compression, the bike just feels wrong. Damper tuning usually boils down to front and rear balance for me. I think a lot of Loris' comments about the other ... more »

Exactly, I’d be willing to bet most of us watched the clip to make sure Aaron’s foot was still attached, not to hate on e13.

I’d rather you lied to us and not publicly pointed your finger at John. It doesn’t have to be anyone’s fault, it’s just part of racing @ the top level. The End.

I’m more upset he threw John Hall under the bus. The man is an absolute perfectionist, and there is no way a 3 year old defective part was used on a brand new build. We all know it was a squeaky clean brand new crank provided by ethirteen. Broken parts ... more »

For real though, we need to leave carbon cranks for the XC guys.

Added a comment about feature Aaron Gwin Still Undecided on Bike Size for the Maribor World Cup 4/24/2019 10:57 AM

I don’t think Gwin is willing to admit he doesn’t feel right on a longer wheelbase 29” bike. He looks far more dialed on the m29 than he did on the YT 29, but frame size seems like a step one off season thing, not pre-race. Just seems a little unlike Gwin, he usually knows what he wants and makes very little changes.

Cannondale should have made a leaf spring setup with this arrangement.

I wonder if the frame design has anything to do with the switch to fox suspension.

Sram and Shimano aren’t engineering much, just modifying 70+ yr old technology and consuming the market. We are talking 2020 here, I think it’s time we had a drivetrain designed this century.

Added reply in a thread 2020 Bike Wants 12/26/2018 12:41 PM

I don’t think current derailleur drivetrains have killed the gearbox at all. The industry just needs to support them more, and then the designs will improve. Gear range has no appeal to me, I could(and still may) go back to a 11-36 1x10spd and be just ... more »

I do like the steeper seat tubes for climbing, but I hate where it puts the saddle when descending. I’d like to see frames with optional linkages, optimized for air and coil. This middle area to work with both is an unnecessary compromise. No more 3 ... more »

They’re all super talented, and I think they’re all just getting started. I think Neko’s value should be up there because of windrock and how involved he is with east coast mtb in general. He’s an approachable guy, who’s promoting the sport in ways that ... more »
