I have not ridden live valve, but the goal of my system seems to be different. From what I can gather through reading is Fox uses a few fixed values (angle of the bike relative to gravity, etc..), and looks for recognizable events like drops or pedal ... more »

A while back there was some discussion on self-adjusting suspension, and I thought ya'll might like to see what it looks like now that it exists. This is the first hardware iteration for my system, which was built from spare parts and a lot of electrical ... more »

I would say that such a system could anticipate and preemptively adjust, but it would take some real-world testing to prove my point. The rider would determine their preference (prior to the race run) for how much the system can change, and when on the ... more »

With the variety of sensors available on full telemetry rigs, I'd bet that a good learner could guess track conditions(moisture, dust), track wear-in, and account for these differences with suspension adjustments mid-run. With enough data per second, ... more »

With hardware capable of changing suspension setting quickly, it would not be a stretch to be able to tune suspension throughout a race run. This could be easily automated, using M.L models trained on practice run data. So, if a rider were to commit ... more »

That is Cole Picchiottino's Session. Check out the shock orientation. Edit: Beat me to it ^^^

That's definitely a new DVO shock... Looks like a few more adjustments. Maybe a DPX2/X2 similar damper design?

Its not racing, but YT is getting ready to launch either the new Capra or a new model of some sort(New DH?, 29er?). https://www.findyouryoungtalent.com/ This was a banner ad on PB, but there is no company associated with the website, other than Shift ... more »

I'd bet that GT has a new enduro bike in the works, or ready now, and they will launch an enduro team with Wyn, Strait, and Maes as the headline riders. They step away from WC DH, but attempt to make a top enduro team

Hey Bud trail on Blackcomb mountain. Spent an evening on Blackcomb this summer, and it was a welcome change to the blown out dust bowl that is the bikepark.

I've never really heard of this bike, but thats not to say its bad. If I were looking for a bike in this price range, i would take a look at Commencal Bikes. Depending on what type of riding you might be doing, the Meta TR V4.2 or Meta AM V4.2 would ... more »

Added reply in a thread How many riders in the 2017 Lourdes World Cup DH Top 10 will be on 29ers? 4/19/2017 7:06 PM

I mentioned this in the Racing Rumors thread but its probably more relevant here. Trek was testing what looked full carbon Session 29ers alongside that aluminum prototype a page back.

Added reply in a thread 2017 Racing Rumors 4/14/2017 7:22 PM

A little bird told me that Trek R&D was riding what looked like full carbon Session 29ers along with the raw alu 29er proto from the Dirt Mountain Bike Article. The bikes looked super well finished, almost as if they were production but they didn't ... more »
