I did this on my Spank Spikes on my previous bike and the OneUp aluminiums on my current bike. There's no point in having pins there since the shoe doesn't cover them, at least for me. The foot arch undercut is there and the shoe moves away. Plus if you move your foot a bit more outwards, the pin doesn't get covered.

Different strokes for different yolks though.

I think the catch here is that 'two athletes tested positive thing' with no names, but there was the picture of five guys being tested floating around. The speculation of who was positive started there.

Excelent generalisation!

Is the V10 also more efficient than an FSR XC whip?

FWIW, i think the AXS Eagle launch had a new set of Lyriks on one of the bikes and the knobs were the same as with the RC2 damper.

I know. I meant 'the truth lives deeper' part.

Elaborate please?

Ah, that explains it. I take some of what i said back then.

But isn't it normal for an athlete to receive a temporary ban for during the investigation, when he/she tests positive? I'm not that well versed in these things, but cmon, proven that you're positive and still be able to race? You're guilty and it's ... more »

Wasn't it confirmed that they were positive? What is the case then? If the EWS is removed from the matter, do they get a ban (if they do get a ban) for only French rounds? Or what? This is all very confusing and a 'we wash our hands of this matter' kind ... more »

Mismatched wheelsize on the Demos? God they look long :D

So, while I have made some posts (on first page), I sadly haven't read the majority of this thread since making my last post (over a year ago!). Maybe I will get to it after posting this, but I just want to share my findings. I've been drinking the long ... more »

@Whattheheel yeah, i know, but nevertheless, a good point. It might be his own doing.

Will be interesting to see if anything happens.

It's not 'how they did the boltless thing'. It's the 'Volcom' thing. Volcom isn't exactly a bike/MTB brand (if anything, BMX, maybe...). So him having a stem cap from Volcom might maybe indicate some changes?

At least that's what i'd like to hear about, don't know if jmcneill has the same stance.

Yeah, they can be dropped, but the governing body can't mandate that the sponsors drop the athletes as part of the punishment. That's what I'm saying. Dropping or not is a decision completely in the hands of the sponsor. EDIT: at the risk of poking the ... more »

Again, sponsor dropping is not something that can be given as a punishment. Also, i think one of the drugs was found in a nutritional supplement from Ryno there was a picture of Graves mixing it or something.

Added reply in a thread EWS Doping Thread Disappearance 3/10/2019 10:59 PM

I don't think anybody said that the punishment itself would be for the sponsors to drop them. It was more of a question what the sponsors will do. By themselves. As for top 50, top 5, etc., both Jared and Richie had very medicore seasons in 2017. Richie
