New fork with 38mm stanchions like the Fox 38 (pretty much the direct competitor). Some photos have been "leaked", but might have been taken down since ... Bit of a boxy looking arch, rest is just black and looks like a lyrik, just fatter. No idea when they plan on releasing the fork

The link between the rear triangle and the shock is longer (you can see the 2 lengths in the 4 pictures of the side of the bike). On the current one, it's the link on the other end of the shock that is longer for the 216x63 shock.

I thought as much when I bought them a while back, but rode them in wet Wales and it actually kept the dry grip! The rubber is actually suuuper soft

Bontrager Brake Vibration Damper

I haven't tried gaffer tape, but the vibrations on mine are driving me a bit crazy ... And I'm pretty sure if I call my local Trek dealer they won't have heard of this :D

I'll actually give a try to gaffer tape ...

Remi Thirion's Commencal Supreme DH V4.2

That's technically not a 4.2, since it's using a metric shock and other small differences (like different cable routing going from the toptube to the swingarm) wink

Another picture where you can see the Ohlins fork and shock, shows him on Formula Cura brakes. But then the picture of him working on his Spe Enduro bike shows some SRAM Guide. So I don't know if he's just testing or if he's gone over to Formula ? Still ... more »

Yea, Brayton's was also the giveaway.

First one couldn't be Fairclough (brake noise that Saints just can't make), 3rd and 4th were pretty loud (and Gee's sounds like it's coming apart as he rides, and the Gambler is rather loud aswell) and Bruni's pretty silent.

Brayton's ohlins suspension was a dead giveaway to be honest.

why the hell does Gee's bike sound like a shopping cart?

First Look: 2017 RockShox Reverb B1 - Same Look, All New Guts and More Travel

At a bit over 6', with rather long legs, and 150 is kind of the "minimum" for me ... but it all depends on the bike, the way you ride, what you ride, height and leg length, ... I'll definitely keep an eye for shops stocking the new Reverb, and maybe even sell my 1month old Stealth, just for the added 20mm.

Yes but the thing is that you can't really find sales on Hope parts while you'll easily find prices with -50% on SRAM/Shimano/RF products, which make them much more competitive price wise.

The product may be extremely good, but I think they went bonkers on the price :/

Added reply in a thread Middle of the road, All around tubeless rim? 11/26/2014 2:09 AM

These are not strictly Tubeless rims, rather tubeless ready rims. Nowadays, most (if not all) rims are tubeless ready providing you put some proper sealing tape. A tubeless rim doesn't need the tape. Few brands have real tubeless rims (Mavic for example),

Oh and the Mavic wheels weren't the regular Crossmax Enduro, no stickers, 24 spokes on the rear ... Still props to the guy !
