5' 9" on an XL. Sure, that sizing is on point...

It just occurred to me: what happens to Mille Johnset? She was supported by the Athertons and doing pretty neat last season. I believe she will be in the Women Elite this year, but on what team? Does anyone have a clue?

So this means Trummer joins Potgieter and Irmisch on YT frames. Speaking of Dirt Propain, I have found this the other day and I don't think it needs any further explanation... https://www.pinkbike.com/u/firebird79/buysell/ Sniff!

”Finally” joining forces with Bell Helmets, as if winning the lottery throws a bit of shade to another helmet sponsor that happens to have stayed on board as a clothing sponsor, iXS. Not exactly smooth communication, if you ask me... But nobody asks

I say YUCK FOU, ream_tumours, you're late to this party! About 4 months late at least.

Kthxbye

I'm totally with you here, but also totally biased, since I have always liked Intense, but never been a fan of Gwin. To me the Intense team of the last two years was the most fun out there: scoring good results with young guns, obvious chemistry among ... more »

Was about to say ”My money's on Mondraker too!”, then scrolled and saw people quicker than me. Nice stuff! :D

Oh, and Zarja definitely had it and was up and coming. What a heart breaker that was, pfff... Monika? Hats off to her too!

I think it is rather a thing of announcing only when things are assembled as you want them to look like, so your image will be perceived just like you intended it to. Very aware of the UCI deadline, probably a lot of people work now very hard to to add ... more »

I believe one needs some numbers to be able to have your bikes made by one of the big guys like Merida or Giant.

Try to think about how many bikes Specialized or Trek are making yearly, because they're the biggest customers of the two above, ... more »

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

I believe people have then tendency to forget that some of the World Cup people who are not on upper shelf contracts still have full time jobs in the off-season, in order to afford all that racing that we all love. Anyone remember how Tracey Hannah worked ... more »

I'd rather watch a proper movie starring Christopher Walken. That's my weapon of choice (sic), thank you!

Nope, but they didn't distribute GT or Trek either.

This is their list of brands, BTW: https://www.madison.co.uk/brands

Hm! I was about to dismiss this. But then I thought again. 1. The Athertons hinted in their farewell statement from Trek to doing ”something different” in the future. This could be diplomatic euphemism for a press release that basically translate into

I see your point, but I believe Merida's ambitions are becoming relevant in every aspect of the sport, pretty much following Giant's path, who also started as a company making bikes for others, having their own brand that steadily increased in value, ... more »
