Heavy sweater here as well. The IXS Trail RS works perfectly for me. No sweat in the eyes while riding, but as soon as i tilt my head forward a good shotglass of sweat comes pouring out of the upper front vent. I dunno where the helmet does store it, ... more »

The reduction in arm pump is huge, too, i feel like i have much better brake control at high speed.

We totally agree, longer runs and more runs would have ultimately shown the difference. We may have tried to pack one too many things into this whole feature, which ultimately did not leave us enough time to do a proper timed test. If we had...more

I am normally one to put a fair bit of stock in timed runs, but watching this footage there is no doubt in my mind that the tuned set up would be faster over 4+ minutes. That much additional composure in the bike is going to be so much less...more

The only time this has been a problem for me is when RedBull posted "See Loic's Winning Run" video right on the page where you go to see the replay. All news sites should be expected to post the results imo.

Yes, because we as a society have agreed that reading the book is worth more than just finding out how it ends and tend not to spoil it for each other. Especially so for highly anticipated releases.

It was absolutely awesome watching the last DH World Cup round, the suspense, the twist...finding out...more

Whether your opinion is right or wrong, there are a fair number of your readers who agree with Peter. We just don't act like dicks about it...

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.

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 »
