How is Greg Minnaar the GREATEST OF ALL TIME? Because he has 22 world cup wins? He doesn't have the most world championships nor the most worldcup overalls! Aaron Gwin has 5 overalls and so does Nicolas Vouilloz. Bruni has the same number of world championships ... more »

It isn't a model year if they come out with a 2020 bike a 2021 bike and a new 2021 bike all in the space of a year. It's the same model the DH one but with different geo, kinematics, spec and colours!

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 10/31/2020 12:33 AM

You claimed that Commencal hadn't stopped making model year bikes. I disagree and gave the example of their DH bike. Yes they still put up year numbers but there is a 2020 model, a 2021 model a NEW 2021 model etc. Thus it is only year model on paper ... more »

The GOAT hasn't ridden in competition for a few year now due to getting cancer twice... You must be talking about the wannabee GOAT Greg Minnaar who has a LONG LONG WAY to go to even catch ACC. He ISN'T even the GOAT of DH in the men's category!

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 10/30/2020 2:49 AM

I beg to differ. Commencal, in the space of a little over a year they came out with 2x 29 DH bikes, 2x 27.5 DH bikes and one mullet DH bike.

You are over reacting. RAW is a video without editing end of story. Vital RAW is awesome and still better than pinkbike's or Redbull's Raw footage.

I agree with you on the keeping to 11 speed instead of 12 for money and smaller cassettes and derailleurs are lighter and less prone to getting damaged. That said for where I live a 30/50 gear ratio isn't enough. Since there aren't 60tooth cogs yet I ... more »

Fair enough. Yeah no thorns here in the Alps.

I run Maxxis Assegai 27.5x2.5 dual compound EXO tires which with the small knobs cut off for better mud clearance. They weigh around 1000g. I then run the tubolite s-tubo 27.5x1.8/2.4 which can be used with a valve extension. I make a hole in the part ... more »

Best change in the last few years was going to inserts and lighter tires. Started out with Schwalbe Procore and am now on Cushcore with tubolite tubes (thus avoiding the whole sealant mess). Now I adjust my tire pressure to the terrain I ride not to ... more »

Strange that you say that about the Assegai. I have found it corners better than my previous allround favorite the Magic Mary. I do find the Assgai to be more of a dry weather tire. I did cut out the small side/middle knobs so mud would clear better. ... more »

That front tire isn't a wet scream unless it is the new version of it.

Seeing as that 2.5 is probably not a WT tyre and actually measures 2.3-2.4in there is a much bigger difference. Bigger tyre is better on rocky terrain but not necessarily in the conditions you mentioned (assuming same carcass of course) i.e. bigger tyre ... more »

Depends on the track doesn't it? If it is rough more travel will be faster.

Tight switchbacks can be done be pivoting on the front wheel. The pros usually nose manual for more efficiency and speed. A dual crown won't be any problem with that technique. Doing tight switchbacks without that technique requires skidding the backend around. If you are exceeding the turning radius of a dual crown then that implies you are going super slow.

Syncros sells a zero loss pump for the truly paranoid.

If you don't unscrew the pump fast enough you do lose air or if the screw is longer. Airing up my DVO Jade is a nightmare because of this. I'll put in 200psi and then when I check it again it'll be 185psi!
