If the seat angle is steepened so that it reduces cockpit length and subsequently requires more reach, what happens when the rider is out of the saddle? The Ideal out of the saddle/descending reach number is then likely compromised for climbing. I'm ... more »

I'm okay with having a compromised climbing bike if I'm not being timed uphill I'd rather have an AM bike that was geared towards the fun side of riding. I also think that technique and fitness plays such huge part in climbing and most guys are nowhere ... more »

Well I completely disagree with that unless you're racing XCO/Marathon.

Oh seated weight distribution. Apologies, I thought you guys were talking about DH handling.

What does SA have to do with weight distribution?

Carbon Evo on the way next spring apparently. At 174cm and even inseam/torso the S2 size will be perfection for me. Well apart from the inevitable racist cable routing that all bikes seem to be adopting.

Top and downtubes should be square section like the rear triangle. It's not very cohesive as is. Seat tube ID should be 34.9 too. That is going to be a new standard (size wise).

I bet that would be the case for 95% of team managers.

I think in a lot of people's minds, as with Froome, Richie will always be a doper from this day forward.

But if you're naturally very mesomorphic like Rude, what you would need is more oxygen uptake to enable you to compete with more typical physiques like Hill, Dailly, etc in endurance cycling disciplines. Moving that much mass around is going to take ... more »

Ahh so that's how you compete in endurance cycling events while looking like a jacked Crossfit bro. I feel sorry for the athletes who got beat by them.

Good news for IBD's in the locations where the stores have closed.

You would have to be dumb as a rock to think this was legit. Even if the prices were tripled..

A real shame IMO. Loic and Finn's bikes often look on a different planet damping wise. I think with a little more time they could've been the default premium suspension choice for MTB.

Well, lets just hope for the best for Ohlins, some fine people work there.

I'm really interested to see the results. I've always wondered how people can compete in multi-day endurance cycling events with Crossfit physiques.

Dang Johan, you look so cramped standing and pedaling on this thing. No wonder people get bars so wide--your kneepads would be banging on the controls if you just turned the bar a little. The seat looks so slack too; it's closer to being over the rear axle than the BB. Sadly, it's probably needed...more

Very nice. Had zero issues with my RFX 36 and only sold it because I wanted shorter offset. Will have this stuff on a future bike without a doubt. So nice internally, no plastic/circlip crap.
