Usually not the biggest Josh Lewis fan but that was rad.

Can't deny... A cockpit with fewer cables would be pretty sick

does the mounting hardware lock? a couple twists with a wrench and those things could be yanked.

Good idea! I'll bring my multitool to Sea Otter.

Channeling my inner Brines: with the alloy rear ends and single front triangle design, seems like there could be future ability for GG to offer different CS length options.

The sad thing is if you want to get points for the WC, it's almost more cost effective to go to Europe than flying around for this BS.

I heard that at the request of Jordi at Fox that the Syndicate needed to have a mechanic solely dedicated puzzling. Apparently, Jordi wanted an extra resource to spend more time deep diving on adjustments. Guess Greg simply didn't twist the knobs enough ... more »

I am more interested in what they paid Walken than I am in Gwin.

I hear you but I am not sure a fully agree. If you're a WC rider, you get what 8 runs to prove who is the fastest for the season? The sample size in the context of racing DH kind of makes sense.

The video makes it seem like both rider had ample time and setup time on all the bikes so that they felt comfortable and then you need to lay down a race run. I think what's interesting is that certain bikes tended to work well for both riders in certain terrain but overall the fastest bike was the one that suited the riders style or maybe help compensate for the riders style weaknesses. I would agree with you if they just hopped on the bike and did a run but it appeared that both riders had ample time to get comfortable with the bikes.

I heard all this Syndicate banter is that they're dropping CLIF as a sponsor and picking up Kendall Jackson. Rumor is that there will be a signature Greg Minnaar pre-race red blend (some sort of Pinot Noir/Syrah combo) and Syndicate post-race sparkling. ... more »

I want to see internet engineers be more condescending to the actual people who make bikes. It's the best... In all seriousness improving tire casings. Lighter tires with strong sidewalls (i.e DH casing strength/durability) would be awesome.

I'm just tossing out an number... Let's not freak out. I am also looking at that money as total spend for the team which includes riders, manager, mechanics, physio, travel, food, vehicles, and other logistics. It's probably not that far off for the ... more »

No doubt its a marketing play for the brands... I was more saying the Syndicate, for example, gets $1.0m in revenue from Sponsors (i.e. SC, Fox, etc.) but the team spends $1.2m between travel, salaries, etc. and Roskopp just picks up the tab on the difference ... more »

General team question: My understanding is the Syndicate is Rob Roskopp's team right? SC along with everyone else sponsors that team (obviously the connection with Rob and SC makes that a extremely tight relationship). I am guessing Rob doesn't have ... more »
