I assume he is referring to the oil not lubing the seals as much as if it was flipped 180 degrees. At first I thought he was saying that running it horizontal is better...

I think the new Range is a great looking bike and it sounds like it performs well too from the early reviews. The prices are a bit unexpected and the weight does seem at least 2lbs heavier than it should be. But I guess the ability to change the dropouts ... more »

Looks like a cube or something?

Well lets look at this differently, what would the wishlist for the new saint be like? where are the weaknesses that need to be addressed?

Looks like incremental updates at best, likely just catching up to what the rest of the Shimano range is doing. 10 tooth 7-speed cassette, which I expect can change under load, likely on microspline. Wonder if they are using a stronger wider chain or ... more »

A virtual high pivot point is still a high pivot point… Think Canfield Jedi

So what are we speculating, something more like a Devinci Wilson?

Possibly a HP version of the old 4-bar supreme, with the floating shock through the frame, but with a horst link instead of the single pivot. Can't quite make out if that is a shock shaft above the idler in the lower pic...?

Is that the new saint crank as Wyn's mic prop? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBLDSGnG-F4

Out of interest, What are the implications of this? More chance of derailment and less power transfer?

She did a fair amount of DH world cups before her injury followed by retirement. I suspect she does a fair bit of coaching on the DH bike as well...

I have no personal experience here but it’s been said that the DVO stuff is great for self maintenance and customer service, but that may vary depending on where you are...

Does the AXS have limit screws?

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 3/18/2021 10:34 AM

looks like the mule they used for prototyping the new bike, I wonder if they will release an Alu version?

Are you one of those people who still remembers all of the phone numbers in their phone

Possibly larger or longer life batteries for AXS

Reply to MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 3/10/2021 5:21 AM

What would be interesting and rad would be if Intense tried a dual link virtual high pivot design ala Canfield Jedi, no one else seems to be playing with that yet, just single pivot and horst link HP bikes lately. (Ps. yes I know a horst link is also

Looks like a session 😋 - but no for real, I think that IS actually a session.

After the recent DH fork shootout on another popular bike site, I’d be surprised if RS don’t move the Boxxer to the new 38 chassis and offer the domain as the budget & ebike option
