I'd like to say that i recently discovered that Big Wheels rip up long sweeping drifty corners and make me feel like a hero. Oh and my ass rubs on the rear tire.If you're not a great rider it makes scetchy stuff quite a bit more fun.

The tool is for installing the new low Friction seals, they are a tighter fit that previous seals so the tool is nice to have.

Just got a 2012 Zoke and it is stellar. They will get bought up and be better than ever.

Yup! Essential gear for me too, never ride without it. I use the IMC, it has lasted 2 years. I need to upgrade to the integrated glove now! Can't ride without it, zero pain with it on.

"Bout time DH went 10 speed. It's not like you'll get herpes if your DH bike has more than 9.

Bring clear packing tape to the races just in case your ghetto ass race promoter tosses you a paper plate! Clearcoat the crap out of it before it turns to toilet paper.

More blue fork seals like Gwinns, i can't imagine they're enduro though. A few years ago Fox said Enduros are so tight that they can hold a grain of sand against the leg and scratch it!

Nother shattered radius here 1.5 years ago...still wearing the OTS brace with the zero degree chip. Hoping to graduate to the TLD shock Dr. This would be great for snowboarding since it would fit under a snow glove.

I used to rock the Tioga seat like Nico's, i called it the Weiner Dog seat, never had the full on couch... What's more freeride than 3.0's and big seats? LBZ pants!!!

Well it's good that he found a place that will keep him at the races then. The type of events he does are going to help grow competetive mountainbiking. It does look like he's got himself a light, capable bike to race on.

I just hope than shock gets him to the finish line. He's run coil suspension on his Nomad even at races like Ashland which is 5" bike nirvana.

I could understand using a pull shock if it somehow allowed to use a unique suspension design or drame shape. But the C Dale looks so similar to the old Scott, it just has a link pulling the shock instead of pushing on it. Same pivot points, and same shock location.

Guessing you weren't around 10 years ago for the Rockshox coil pullshocks on the GT Lobo, and the Yeti Straight 8. This is Cannondale trying hard just to be different. And especially be different that the Scott, that was nearly identical otherwise, since C Dale hired the Scott guy to build this bike. Mert Lawwill of Yeti engineering at the time thought that there would be less friction on the shock but it turned out to be a PITA to build. They first built it so there was no need for a pressurized floating piston to further reduce friction but then due to heat expansion it would blow up. A resivoir was added, then at that point it was just like a regular shock, just far more complicated.

Was Santa Cruz dumb enough to let him go or was Cannondale smart enough to hire him? Good move for C Dale.

I wonder if that's a Fox seatpost. He's been on Gravity Dropper for years.

Nice to see Riffle showing a little personality. He comes off as a major tough guy. I've been n DH since 24x3.0's and rarely heard Riffle say a word.

Yet another team off to SRAM

Rando is just in australia now i believe, he's still doing a lot of testing. Not to start off a geo thread..but After quizzing Rando in Vegas he said they run stock geo and run the Fox 40 15-20mm up in the crowns to slack em out....i said yeah but most people run Boxxers and that's what comes on the Glory 1...can't do that...maybe they'll use Anglesets this season. The 44/56 Angleset is shipping in a matter of days!!!
