For what it´s worth, this wekeends race footage of Greg Minnaar´s run looked totally off for me too. Now of course that was a life stream replay and maybe it was just on my screen or something, but it goes to show things can look strange due to technical

Not just only for qualifying. Only if it´d bring other value alongside it, like more cameras. Also they´d have to first make the situation better for all the independent media guys on the track before i´d trust RB with going full paid coverage. I fear ... more »

Definitely pedals and a Multitool or set of Hexkeys so you can set things up to your liking. Most rental shops won´t dial things in for you at all, so it´s good to have that tool in your pocket to adjust brake levers, saddle height etc. on the trail. ... more »

In Leogang Sport Mitterer has brand new Scott bikes of all categories for rent, even the high end spec Gambler models with the Fox Factory bits. You should probably email them and make a reservation so you can get the good stuff as they also have some ... more »

Yup, i hadn´t even doubted the crank story before any proof. The problem is when an athlete or manufacturer gets all up in arms over such a trivial thing, people will inevitably start to doubt the story. Now, after that interview, these things will pop ... more »

That whole interview really is something else. I don´t know what to say to that. This is getting blown way out of proportion by them.

This is such an important point. We have all these communication channels today, but sometimes it is better to not use them. Santa Cruz have not jumped on twitter claiming how Marshy was experimenting with frame flex on that particular frame and had ... more »

Saying stupid things is one thing. Throwing your friends under the bus is something else. What he´s doing is damage control 101, owning up to the mistake before the twitter shitstorm gets going. It´s basic knowledge for any pro athlete in 2019. Maybe ... more »

Biggest problem would be wear parts such as seals and oil. So you should probably factor in a possible service on suspension and brakes. Other than that, 2014 isn´t too old and should be fine in terms of geometry. Contrary to popular believer even 26" ... more »

Apparently the dates are overlapping so that plan was probably doomed from the beginning anyways. That´s just what i read somewhere though. I´d say given his start to the season and the hyper competitive field in dh, he´s better off just finishing the ... more »

Releasing wrong weight numbers for trolling purposes seems like a darn dumb thing to do for a bike manufacturer though, given how obsessed bikers are still with weight. I know they like to troll but...nah, i really don´t think those weights are off

The thing that´s weird though is that the frame doesn´t look like a proto. It looks like a production carbon frame. If this was a prototype, fine, but going carbon proto seems rather excessive and cost inefficient. So why build in that top tube mount ... more »

Interesting. Judging by the lines of the link mounting bracket and the thin toptube it looks like a carbon frame (just speculation), but that damper mount screams prototype. That long mount doesn´t look confidence inspiring at all. Really weird bike ... more »
