So much talking, but so little proof to back it up. Honestly, the fact that Stikman says ”Charlie and John hanging is an interesting rumour” gives the rumour more weight that the rumour itself. Or he is trolling us all and enjoys his popcorn right now...

I don't believe it's as simple as that, like a kid with a super wealthy parent walking into a candy shop: ”So what do you wish for, love?!” It's too fairy-tale like. I believe it's more probable that they have excellent ties in the industry (duh!) and

Hah, just the photo I was about to write about! Brayton on Oakley more than likely means he's off Scott, because it seems that certain sponsorship deals come in packages. I remember when Brendan switched to Scott Bicycles he was a Smith Optics rider ... more »

I thought Eliot was riding just moto in TLD gear.

You mean Johnny, right?

Either way, glad he is alright! Cheers!

I have seen him in certain videos throughout the years, riding XC in Australia, promoting the sport, still with connections to Santa Cruz and the Syndicate etc. That's what I remember. I don't know precisely what he is doing these days, but I am left ... more »

After all the PR fiasco Specialized was through in the last couple of years * cough-cough, Roubaix cafe *, I am pretty sure they are very aware of the image damage they are risking in such a case, even their contract with Jared ends this year anyway, ... more »

Adidas is bigger than TLD and it is a prestige collab that everybody benefits from, especially TLD. Also, in case you didn't notice, it's the era of collabs and they are all over the place, a thing that also kinda waters down the idea of collabs, since ... more »

Sorry, Claudstradamus! I did not know of your existence. Please spare me of your wrath! What does the crystal ball tell you; will you be able to forgive a cheeky mortal like I am? Grazie, Mx

Oh, sorry, my bad! I forgot our ”Simon says” rule that applies to this thread.

What sense would it make? Commencal already has a team and they've put quite some effort building it. It's a team of younger people that already is pretty accomplished. Does anyone think money just floats around? The Athertons will obviously go to whom

Hm, that would be cool, but as far as I can remember she has mentioned her love for the Miata/MX-5 a few times on Instagram, so maybe it's only that. But I do second your hope that car makers will be back into MTB. And to make the picture complete, Volvo ... more »

Yep, Tomac is a total farmer. Even his first signature tires were called ”Farmer John”. And he's father to one of the most successful MX guys out there. Oh, and he's a MTB legend, doing product development and asked to coach every now and then. Including ... more »

Pinkbike's, erm, ”information” was pretty much a compilation of what people are talking around here since 15+ pages now.

Sorry to interrupt, but I think it's super ironic that the page that announces our favorite Rat's departure from Santa Cruz has a Santa Cruz ad tailored around him (and that actually mentions his name) in the header.

I am talking about how keen serious riders or privateers were about buying Giants back then vs. nowadays, when they are much better. The comparison is Giants of back then vs. other bikes of back then and Giants of nowadays vs. other bikes of nowadays.

Not a fan of Merida, but with their money they can make anything they want. How good were their road bikes before Lampre and TdF and all that wind tunnel testing? If there is a budget and a team to develop around, I believe pretty much anything can be

I see your point and I mostly agree with it, but no Brit has ever invaded Romania MTB-wise. Yet. We have had Harry Heath and Robert Williams over in 2011, but Harry was a special guest and Rob heard of the race and decided to come along and returned ... more »

Erm, this year we decided to document the Worlds in English. I don't know if posting the link here is a problem, but you should find some nice pictures inside and we are not competitors of VitalMTB, but rather fans and our site is local and small. If ... more »
