Oh wow, such trigger-happy people here, willing to judge Anneke and her personal choices... Congratulations fellas, I'm sure riders will appreciate this high moral stance!

As far as I can remember, Rachel was on TLD before she was on Bell and Alpinestars with the rest of the GT squad.

Oh, so it seems Mike King, Mercedes Gonzales, Eric Carter, Steve Peat, Nicolas Vouilloz, Katja Repo, Nolvenn LeCaer and the rest were all GT Factory Racing B.C.???

Am I the only one pissed that Levy used the ”Racing Rumours” topic as ”inspiration” for his article today (no, I will not link it) and killed a good part of the mystery? I know there is no exclusivity on this, but to me Racing Rumours have always been ... more »

Yo, Spomer! Related to the first post in the thread: that fork is a Manitou X-Vert Ti (1998-1999/150 mm). The X-Vert Carbon came later, had the prolonged lower, just like Kovarik and the Intense boys used them in 2001 and 2002. They were also dry as ... more »

Reply to Loris Vergier has a 27.5 and 29er Santa Cruz V10 at Val di Sole 8/25/2017 11:30 AM

Now everybody and their cat will have an ”opinion” on carbon frames' and Santa Cruz' durability, totally ignoring the simple fact that no bike is designed to take side impacts from poles. It's as if you would act surprised if you hit you bike with an ... more »

Now everybody knows where Norco frames are made at! :D

It's always useful to have brake adapters from one of your competing brands, especially if you are an up and comer and also if there are blank ones available and sharpies around!

@bturman Thank you, but I guess this goes out to each and every guy who dropped a line on this thread. We are all true racing fans and passionate MTB nerds. I like to believe this also motivates one or few riders out there, knowing there are people whom ... more »

Now this is something! As a guy who plays basketball at least 3 times a week full throttle, wakes up to NBA results and The Starters, but lives, sleeps, eats and shits bikes, this is some amazing news. I need to wear that diagonal stripe road jersey

My take on this is that Greg deserves better aesthetics. As does Sam, as a matter of fact. But we'll see what he'll rock. The OGK Kabuto news is interesting because he had a business with Martin Whiteley distributing their goods. I always thought they ... more »

Riders often sell their racing and spare bikes in the off season for some cash. Back in the day you could buy these in their preferred bike shops, today I guess it's the internet, obviously. Some interesting rumours here in the last couple of hours,

This is bullshit! People! First and foremost, ”Gerücht” means in German ”rumour”, so those dudes are doing exactly what we are doing here, only they added some nice pictures and presented it as an ”article”. You should not be surprised if their ”sources” ... more »
