They have made a link to give it 180mm and Magnus Manson is running it, but it only works on the large and xl sizes. I think Connor runs a medium so is still on 154mm. There was talk of the DH bike coming mid season

Same trick they pulled to make the first 29er Boxxer protos. Lyrik legs, even running a 15mm axle

I've got a Garmin Forerunner 245 music. Does everything I need. All the sports watch functions including built in heart rate and will run trailforks and audio through my Bluetooth headphones and about half the price of a Fenix.

So, is Dean running an aluminium prototype?

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 4/9/2022 5:19 AM

I've noticed Dean Lucas is running an aluminium Gambler frame this year, or at least the front end. It doesn't look too different from the stock one but there has to be a reason. New Scott proto or just testing custom geo?

I think you need to at least wait until after Fort Bill to judge how IFR and the new bike are going. Lots of top guys and teams were a bit off the pace at Lourdes and there's a big break now to sort out the details. Gwin looked happy and confident in ... more »

I don't think the shock will be mounted that high. The split bottom of the downtube suggests it will be tucked in there.

Added reply in a thread tire side knob angle question 3/6/2022 3:29 PM

From the theory I have read on moto tyres, an interrupted tread actually provides more predictable grip, but less overall grip. It breaks away earlier and less snappy, so you are less likely to go down. That said, I'm team straight side knobs all the ... more »

I don't think it is any more remote than Snowshoe, and any serious injuries would be picked up quickly by the Toll Rescue chopper so I don't think that is the real reason. If Thredbo wants to run a WCDH they could do it. I've heard rumours that they have been considering it. The rumour I heard was a new track through the golf course bowl which has the potential to be waaaay steeper. There's enough hill and terrain to build a super gnarly world cup track there.
C'mon Stuart Diver! make it happen!!

Laurie Greenland stopped wearing his when he went to a longer bike for that exact reason.

203mm is the standard. 200mm is just SRAM and should die! 203mm is 8" so if you want to blame anyone, blame America 😂

Scissors! You get yourself a $10 set of flush cutters, so worth it.

I hope there's a set on the way to Kye pretty soon. Also..... Kenda prototype tyres!

Added reply in a thread 2022 Mountain Bike Team Rumors 1/23/2022 3:46 PM

I just want to make it clear that I'm not hating on Gwin, but I am being critical of the tyre choice. I would love to see him back in the mix and challenging for wins. Maybe if he can stay off the ground, busts out a sharpie and spends a month in Morzine ... more »

You realise Aaron owns and runs the IFR team now and it's a separate entity to Intense Bicycles? He's chosen to run Kenda and take their sponsorship $. No one at Intense is forcing them to run them.

I felt worse for Jack about the stitch up he got from C'dale, but that looks to have ended up being a blessing in disguise. He seems pretty happy where he is now although I hope he gets paid the $ he deserves in the next contract cycle.
