if that does actually happen, it's going to be a while. i would not let the industry dictate what i ride. it's gotta feel great, and i have to feel like i can rip on it. all else comes second.

Ohlins gets guys like you and me to comment on the deal. Word spreads. Eventually Ohlins rolls out wider in MTB. Growth strategy. As much as we're all talking about specialized in 2013, seems like a wise move to jump on and get some buzz started.

Love to see tech progress. Personally, I've run 1x9 for years. Have never once wished I had an easier gear and there are some pretty steep and tech trails around these parts. I'm sure the guys and gals reluctant to go 1x9 will be more likely to go with something like this. Options for all.

Agreed GT / Gee obviously got it dialed...however...the guy bumping him into 2nd place for the past how many races came in 20th......with Gwin "figuring it out" the podium is blown w-i-d-e open. You couldn't write a better story than what race 1 showed us.....support from me to all the riders. Thanks for the show you guys. Have a good race everyone.

There is no conspiracy here. Read my comments from months ago as to why the race is not coming back to Windham.

Rheeder's 3/4 turn into the left on the big line in the rhythm room was nice (min 1:25).

Makes sense. I'm pretty comfortable tuning stock stuff and know I need more out of what a stock set up can get me. In any case, i'll see ya windham. Good luck in the first race.

I tell you what with DH stuff Im at complete loss when it comes to suspension tuning. I can tell you what the bike is doing during certain sections but I have no Idea how to correct issues. MY buddy Eliot, the one who got me racing these things helps me out a bit and knows a bunch more on the stuff than I do. Pretty pumped hes goin out to be my coach at the first GRT this upcoming weekend. But yeah like you, XC and all mountain bikes are easy for me to dial in.

That's the cheat code alright. Not too keen on sending Fox stuff to Push. Considered the heavier springs but don't wanna make it too stiff. Using all my travel right now, not bottoming, but it needs to be way stiffer for pedal sections. Getting factory rebuilds now and will play with low speed compression a whole lot upon return. Also, if I set sag to recommended values, the bike is a mess. I can dial my XC and AM bikes in no prob but the DH bike seems so much more finicky.

Great comments. Running Fox as well, racing as well. Know my setup needs to be custom tuned. Wondering who you use?

This turned out to be an awesome thread. I really like SRAM as a company. At Windahm, they were doing free rebuilds and service for citizens racing. One citezen's fork was so bad they GAVE him a brand new boxxer. The other big suspension guys were there too, for the pros only. Even with an empty booth and 4 reps standing around, didn't really even want to talk. That really stuck with me. So many companies have great products, especially with tooling and machining getting more affordable, and rapid prototyping getting faster and faster. What I am saying is that sometimes the differentiator becomes customer service. Just look at how many suspensn companies are out there right now with products that pros are pushing really hard. My initial reaction to this video stemmed more from disappointment that the customer service aspect may have taken a turn. In any case, I'm glad it was a joke. No one expects the boehemoeth to market like a boutique. It's a win for sure.

I once raced a Cat 1 single speed 30 miler and came in dead last, 20 mins after the leader. If I would have had this shock, things would have been different and you know it.

OK - I just took the time to watch the whole commercial. @ 03:18: "Sadly, 97% of riders lack the skill to push the vivid to it's limits." Ya, I fell for it. Good job RS. Pretty creative execution with the whole deadpan delivery.
