So that's the new ethirteen assegai then. Looks interesting.

230x70 is metric. 222x70 is the old 8.75x2.75in and would fit!

Greg Minnaar doesn't fit his bike which is why it keeps getting longer every year! He should just get a 540mm reach V-10 made special for him with 480mm chainstays and be done with it!

I think that is a pretty useless feature on a fork. Mid speed compression would be much more interesting to prevent brake diving.

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 7/11/2021 10:12 PM

You could already do that with the previous fork. This one probably has less offset.

It's a custom one off with a steel front triangle.

I'm pretty light at 60kg and have trouble getting full travel out of my Dorado even with the IRT so that's why I mentioned having a coil version.

I think it'll be 20x110 boost with shorter offset and IRT standard in the Dorado Pro. The only way they could make it better would be to offer a coil option everything else is already awesome!

Sad but true...

My issue with centerlock is a) you have to tighten it super tight or it comes loose and b) they is always a bit of play which is super annoying. Next wheels I will be back to trusty old 6 bolt!

Crown looks reversed for sub 30mm offset.

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 3/17/2021 1:57 PM

New Dorado will come with shorter offset, boost spacing, compatibility with 223mm rotors and apparently new stickers.

Reply to Will lighter riders benefit from an RS Zeb or Fox 38? 12/17/2020 3:15 AM

I weigh 60kg/132lb and I prefer a stiffer fork which is why I don't run a single crown fork. I have had a Yari and a 36 and can say the flex under braking is terrible! From the reviews I have read the new 38 and Zeb aren't much better. I will stick to ... more »

Results decide whether or not you are the GOAT. Greg Minnaar has most wins because a) he is a great rider and b) because he has been around the longest. Gwin has acheived more in a shorter amount of time. Vouilloz achieved even more and then retired ... more »

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!

Reply to 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!

Reply to 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.

Reply to PB using RAW? 10/30/2020 2:40 AM

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.
