Would have been interesting to then do the same test with mortal piloting the two bikes. You always hear, "Pro X could ride a shopping cart down a hill..." Would a new bike only be slightly faster for us? I don't think so, most of us would probably have a huge gap between the two. Pro's are just amazing at riding the ragged edge.

Such a great piece. Peaty is the best.

EDIT: Maybe this would have yielded bigger differentials if he did it at a world cup track? Can someone comment as to the gnar factor of that track?Just curious. BTW, pretty cool they brought Bryceland back as Peaty's mechanic. (that was a joke)

I think two things are at play here.

1. Rude and Moir arn't on one so obviously they are trash bikes.
2. The rearward axle path does make it harder to generate speed from pumping. Ok on steep shit like most dh courses but maybe more tiring on long enduro days.
2b. People really need to get over the idea that bikes need to be light. It really makes no difference.

I'm really surprised they left that in. To bad its not at the start, would be the best squirrel catcher ever.

I wanna thank you for making the alloy Scout frame. I'm 5'10", have short legs and love to shred but not on a mega-travel mongoloid frame.
Now I have something to upgrade my pretty cool parts to in the near future.

Now...if only Lars remembered that one time we were on track...more

I know its qualies but damn. Look what happens to US racers when we have a race on home soil. Wish we could come up with a few legit venus that could be ran every year.

@taldfind summed it up nicely as the slacker head angle, longer travel fork and longer chain stay of a downhill bike create a longer wheelbase and thus a bigger overall bike to handle. Regardless of similar reach numbers. As an example, here is a comparison between by personal V1...more

Kona's process X has 435 chainstays in the short setting. Unfortunately they are plastic and f'ing expensive.
