I stopped respecting Neko when he tried to start with cardboard instead of proper back protector and got disqualified

Eye to eye on mine is 200 mm, but the shock doesn't use all it's travel, because otherwise the piggyback would hit the frame at full bottom out. I'm not sure what they did to achieve that, maybe ask Giant?

I heard Bad Wildbad is thinking about opening soon, maybe write them on Facebook (Bikepark Bad Wildbad). The DH track used to be really cool, but they mellowed it down a lot I think. The other parks I know of (that could be open soon) aren't really worthy ... more »

It warms my heart to see him not in a Leatt abortion helmet.

I would replace the Giant dropper as soon as possible!
Mine is very unreliable, from the beginning I took it apart and regreased everything as soon as it started to feel rough. But after only 3-4 month of use it had quite a lot of play, looked like someone sanded it and started to feel rough after 2 drops of rain.
At the end of last season the play was so bad, that it started to rattle really loud while riding. That was so annoying that I'm going to replace it now, but I wish I had done that the second I got the bike and didn't have to have all that trouble this season.

The final sentence calls out the pricing. Yes, it's expensive. So are the hours of CNC time it takes to make that incredible cassette so it doesn't weigh five pounds, the team of engineers it took to come up the improvements, and on and on. The price will no doubt improve as...more

Could be it just didn't arrive in time, stuck in customs, etc.

Looks like he dug these brakes out from his Lapierre days, I can't imagine Sram would ship out a set of X0 Trails these days.

If improvements are killing DH, than yes, otherwise I don't get the point.
I'm really not pro UCI, but people have been complaining for years now and demanding a separate organisation for DH, but nothing has happened, and it's most likely that nothing will happen.
The tracks have been getting a LOT better and some of the new regularities aren't all that bad. DH will rocket upwards in popularity if and when some big sponsors get into the sport and I think we're on a pretty good path for that. And once that happened the UCI can't really f*ck up much anymore.

Well, with the exception of Leogang and possibly Lenzerheide they're all pretty great I think. It's a big improvement compared to 2-3 years ago.
