Jeff, how did the race go and how is the Top Fuel? Did you try a Tallboy 4 before going for the Top Fuel?

This looks cool. I am very curious as to how they are gonna catch the cheaters who hot rod their motors. Even a few extra watts could make a difference in this format with the climbing stages.

How does the shifter and derailleur work with an XO1 cassette is what I'd really like to know.

If your SRAM Eagle drivetrain isn't shifting well try 2 things. First, set the B tension screw per spec. Use the plastic SRAM tool and its quite easy to get it right. Still not super crisp? Try a Shimano SP41 housing and a coated cable. With these two things and proper cable tension, SRAM Eagle stuff works really really well, like super crisp.

Would I change out a hub for the new Shimano cassette? No way, but I might cross shop a shimano shifter and derailleur if the price was close.

Interesting! I've run Code Rs and RSCs on multiple bikes with great success. Love the updated Code stuff. Easy to bleed, easy to find parts & pads, just plain work. (edit: for me)

Weird and expensive. For every enduro sold how much is going to that ridiculous video? On a unit to unit basis, its more than $1. Over produced. Next to no riding. The story sucked.

Give me some raw ripping and fun-having. Leave the "I hope I get to produce the next Stranger...more

He's an old school dude from humble beginnings who has been inspiring us for well over 20 years. Mad man embodying the true spirit of MTB- go fast, take chances, and have fun! Keep it up Voreis, thanks for the inspiration.

Aggressor 2.5 on a 30mm width rim on my SB150. No issues with rub or flex. 7mm clearance on the drive side chain stay.

BT makes it sound like a stiffer rear end may be in the works for the '20 model year bikes though, or perhaps I am reading too much into his comments in the vid?

Nice video review. This bike looks wicked.

Agree- bike looks really good. Wonder why SC would limit buyers on shock sizes and types though?

The Rockwell Flyer. Micheal Ronning also did some great riding on one of these I think.

Same weight as a modern ebike! Crazy times we live in!!

From 2016 EWS in Chile. Now go read the list of ingredients on that Alphamine he's about to scoop in that bottle and you'll see higenamine listed. In 2016, when this photo was taken, it was not on the list of specified substances but was added in 2017. You can draw your own conclusion as to how it...more

Lighten up dudes.

Richie got busted, served his penalty, and is back in the game, whatever the back story is. He's a young powerhouse with a long career ahead of him. I'm sure he'll be a lot more careful who's bottle he sips from now.

And damn, what a return!?!

4/5 stages won? Very impressive!

The only thing missing was Martin Maes to battle it out with. Martin is the same. I think he got hosed but that won't change how this is playing out. He'll serve his penalty and learn from it. Let the young men continue to mature and we and mountain biking will all be better for it because both he and Richie seem like good guys who have both had a really eye opening experience with these incidents.

What are these guys, 21 years old, 22? I don't know about you, but I was pretty foolish myself at that age. I'm not sure how well I would have behaved had I been in a spotlight as bright as the one shining on these guys right now. Don't wreck their careers because of a mistake. Steer them back on course and let them change for the better.

I will be patiently waiting for the RR vs MM showdown whenever that happens. Lets get back to RACING!
