Monday at work, the phone rings, "Do you sell those DH Bikes that can win WC races without chains?" (Reply) Yes, yes we do. LOL.

As a fellow wheelie devotee, I applaud a record on a "real bike" rather than the effective unicycles (fixies and such) I have seen in the past.
Braking takes effort along with the other balance aspects and it makes for a true wheelie record.
Nice work!

Keep in mind that this was made for a VERY general audience - so, yeah, some of the narration isn't 100% correct. But you get the idea. My favorite bit is the distinction between the inner and outer suspension forks, haha.

WELCOME TO LEOGANG - World Cup Track Walk

Slide #14: hilarious. I hope Brendan Fairclough gets some top results to help his career momentum. He's a great personality to see in WC coverage and I want that to continue for a very long time.

@shutter2ride, I'm not saying 460mm is not a short XL, I am saying it is not a L. I would consider the 477mm Spitfire, like the 485mm GT Sanction, to be at the extreme end of the XL spectrum. But your example with the SB6c proves my point: the XL is 465mm while the L is 447mm, so the 460mm Capra is inline with XLs, even if it is shorter than some folks prefer from an XL.

460mm is absolutely not a size L reach. My XL Stumpy EVO is 456mm and is a great fit for my 6'4" all-torso self. 460mm may not be the longest offering in XL, but it is nowhere near a L.

PIT BITS - Aaron Gwin's Super Clean Specialized S-Works Demo for Leogang

That is how his contracts are written; suspension is Fox, drive train and brakes are SRAM. That's not uncommon. I heard some athletes actually prefer splitting sponsors because they can net more pay. If sponsor A is a full kit sponsor paying $X, they may deliberately sign with B and C who collectively offer the same components because the sum of B's pay and C's pay is more than just A's pay, $X.

Side-by-side is loaded with two bikes: DH and ebike. Stash e-bike at bottom of run. Drive to top with DH bike. Descend on DH bike. Leave DH bike at bottom, then climb to top on ebike. Load ebike on side-by-side and drive to bottom. Stash ebike, load DH bike, and drive to top. Continue until you, your ebike, or your side-by-side run out of energy.

Pretty cool slideshow even without all the DH shots. It's just a cool look into the WC support life. You guys always give us glimpses into that, but this slideshow is chalk full.
