These always feel like previews for the real video. I'm sure John could talk for hours about setup and what not. Instead were left with a few sound bits and b-roll

Earlier my comment about Pivot downsizing their sponsored athlete roster was debunked as false... however, it's apparent Pivot is slashing riders from CX, MTB (XC) and looks like Ed Masters leaving too. So, my original statement that they're likely pulling ... more »

The rumor I was referring to is cutting back their Cyclocross squad/sponsorship and how it may relate to the Pivot MTB side of things since it's coming from the same budget. Could also mean an increase on the MTB side as well.

There's been some talk that Pivot is scaling back all of it's sponsorships for 2020 (not just mountain). He might be a casualty of that. Although, he is one of the top EWS guys so he may have also left for a bigger contract anyhow.

Regarding YouTube... I've seen stats that while it fluctuates a ton based on many metrics... it's fairly safe to assume a 10min+ youtube video (has to be over 10min to have slots for multiple commercials) that has 1 million views, will net ~$1,200 for ... more »

Would like to see someone put a crank based power meter and a hub based power meter on this bike. See what the losses are due to the idler (obviously calibrate on a normal bike first).

Bike looks fantastic BTW.

Allen, you referenced adding spacers to increase mid-stroke support--that's not true and wanted to point it out just to clarify for other readers. It's important to point out the myth (that I've heard repeated in Youtube videos and in written web articles) ... more »

*And I'd assume since he has to run DHF 29 tire, he wants the same casing and rubber compound for his rear tire so they have the same feel. Hence the DHRII

Loic has some version of the Hillbilly out back. However, sideknobs slightly different than current Grid/Black Dymnd design. Interestingly Specialized doesn't have a DH version of the newer design hillbilly on their website. However, I think this tire ... more »

"Wasn't Max Commencal against carbon??" Ha, going to have to walk that back "FRO", "Found a good environmentally friendly factory" etc. Maybe had his racers clamoring for it and watched sales of carbon bikes...

Love when video guys just keep the camera on the person's face when they're showing features or demonstrating things on the bike. Way too common in cycling industry promo/info videos.
