If I'm not mistaken Tahnee said somewhere that the bike is a bit different, most noticeably with longer CS

@sspomer Rock garden is still part of the track. Anyway there will be plenty of footage from track in the following days as IXS euro cup race is being held this weekend and the competition is stacked because pretty much all major teams will be there. ... more »

If someone would be able to develop graphene for industrial applications it would be the likes of Northrop Grumman or spaceX, definitely not Trek

That entrance into last woods with massive offcamber roots was nuts!
Part of lower section runs across some private land so they had to shut it down... Anyway the long pedal to the gondola was almost not worth it

That would be a bummer as he was the best rider on that team, but they were probably the most unlucky team with all the injuries...

Best (or worst) prediction for 2019: Athertons on Marin Xquare one clone with Trust the DH prototype fork, the ugliest bike the world has ever seen, Gee and Rach win all races by margins even Vali cant reach in junior women, the world burns.

I was wrong with my Sherlock guess on previous page, You can actually see relatively thin end of the swingarm with 2 bolts of the dropouts and the chain does not go towards the BB but much higher aka high pivot. Even swingarm is elevated

Since you are talking about Monika, I've just went full Sherlock and found that the last story she posted on IG is almost certainly from Cannes, France. Troy Brosnan just traveled across the world to the south of France and Mark Wallace is there as well. ... more »

The thing is, registration deadline is 15th, UCI page however does not become available immediately, last year it happened around 10th of February... But this still gave some info on previously unannounced teams, I think UNNO was one of them...

If you check comments from that article, in between there is a comment from someone related to the brand who says there are total 4 people running banshee bikes, this would mean Atherton WC team is bigger than the whole Banshee bikes

Added a comment about feature Slow Motion Action of The Message Front Linkage Suspension System 1/10/2019 3:34 PM

What I've gathered from different reviews, there is potential in this design (there is an active topic on mtbr forum plus some reviews floating around internet). Performance on small bumps and corners is apparently amazing as is efficiency (you dont need to even think about lockout), big hits supposedly suck (presumably damping related). Most interesting parts of reviews were opinions after going back to normal forks, many people said that while Message is far from perfect in current state, it clearly shows how bad (or maybe I should say unbalanced) classic telescopic forks are in certain aspects like breaking/cornering. Basically telescopic fork is not able to separate inputs from wheel or rider and simply reacts in the same way to any input while this design is very capable of doing so, I can completely agree with this statement and see exactly the potential. And I do not think so because DW designed it, never really liked him as a person, always found him pompous and the release of this fork really didn't change my mind. Apparently its is also very short so it drops modern already low BB's even further, that sounds like an issue regardless of performance. Hope they also make more models with different travels. And finally the price, this one pretty much costs as much as my bike, would be interesting if alloy version can be made...

Video is titled: "Running in some new parts. So stoked on the set up for 2019.", can anyone figure out what new parts he is running? I'd say brakes are still TRP, fork looks like 36?
