I would have had to flip a coin between Zink and Sorge. Other than that I think it was one of the best Rampages ever!

Here and there I would arm chair judge it different, but I’ve never been there physically so the judges probably know better.

Love the event! Love the progression! Love the fact there were no serious crashes.

C50_gundamn_1428773738

I ride a 29er. I love technological progress in bikes.

But I have one concern: If bigger and bigger wheels prove more and more advantageous, at what point will tall riders have a overwhelming advantage by riding equipment shorter riders can't possibly use?

One of my favorite parts of DH racing is that most sizes of human can compete-- to see Danny Hart and Troy Brosnan level with Minnaar and Payet is awesome.

But if people keep pushing the wheel size, and Payet sized people come to dominate on, you know, a 33in wheel in 2020, and short riders are pushed out of the sport like it was basketball or something, it would be a real shame.

For this reason I am fine with the UCI capping wheel size at a max of 29.

For the people saying the fast guys could have qualified slow to start earlier, this is why they don't:
UCI MTB Regulation 4.5.033
The start order for the final is determined on the basis of the reverse result of the qualifying round or seeding run (women juniors), the fastest rider starting last.
The top 10 protected riders (as defined in art. 4.5.031) who were not classified in the top 10 places for women elite and the top 20 places for men elite of the qualifying round must start immediately before the top 10 women elite and the top 10 men elite from the qualifying round. For the men elite, protected riders ranked 11th-20th who were not classified in the top 20 places of the qualifying round will start before the top 20 men elite from the qualifying round.
(text modified on 1.01.16; 1.01.17)

The UCI adopted this rule last year for the live broadcast so as to ensure the fast guys and gals are always shown. So now even if they did try to play tactics they'll just end up with less points and a similar start time to normal.

I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It is defiantly stiffer and much more stable at speed then the old one. It made me want to buy this bike again. The only thing that is holding me back is the fact that they should have made the bike just a bit longer in reach and gave it stronger wheels.

What would be rad to see is a long travel 29er comparison. How about that vital?

Really enjoyed the podcast. Had either forgotten or didn't know just how deep Martin's background went with bike suspension. I like a lot of what he had to say about the brand and perspective on the bike industry. Really looking forward to see what DVO comes up with in the coming year. My friend has the new boost Diamond and the newest Topaz T3 on his trail bike and the quality and finish looks impressive. Definitely in the running for my next bikes

The tube works with a finish line grease gun too, it's great for controlled application. also useful for squirting it down shift housings, which is probably my favorite use of this grease.
