He had a valid point.... which was what? Please provide additional information. Maybe links to the races that everyone else on the team has won that had world cup level competition. And for your question, Duncan is the highest ranked US rider on the world cup circuit after the other six choices and Richie Rude, who is going for juniors. It makes sense to choose him based on that and his past experience. Unless you would rather have Cody Warren go, who is ranked 151. He's the next senior in line on world cup rankings.

You idiot, what do you think is going to happen at Worlds? All six other people on the US team are going to win and NOT Duncan?

Gwin will probably win. Mitch is amazing but not quite up to winning speed yet, same with Elliot, who has flashes of brilliance but hasn't put it together other than a few times. Strobel can always do well, but has 'only' gotten in the top 15 at world cups a few times. Neko has tons of potential, but same as the other guys, I think he's got a year or two more to be a podium threat. Logan doesn't need anyone to say that he is going to kick butt or his head might get bigger. Not that any of this is a knock on those riders, they can all pin it and should go. Reality is that everyone will learn and there will only be one (only one) winner. We've got the strongest team in a long time, and that is something to be proud of.

As for Duncan, say what you will about him, but he's done well in world cups, and has more elite races under his belt than any of the other guys except for maybe Strobel. Duncan's year hasn't been what he wanted, but he has still done well and has potential. Maybe he can be an asset to the team, imagine that.

Logan Binggeli's KHS DH300 at US National Champs

Logan should have been the national champ last year, despite Neko having a faster time. One of the reasons the UCI has all the top 20 ranked world cup DH riders race at the same time (protected riders are put in the top 20 if they don't qualify in the top 80)is for the same conditions, in theory. And with this shit show a few months ago they say that different race times don't matter as far as morning and afternoon? Logan won with all the other seniors at the time he needed to. No offense to Neko, it wasn't his decision and he was just caught in the middle.

That being said, I wish Logan could come off like less of a prick and less of a douche, but he doesn't. He's fast on two wheels and that's about it.

If it wasn't for the KHS, Marzocchi, loose chain and brake lines that need to be cut I'd say it looks pretty good. In all seriousness though, all wheel sizes for MTB should die except for one. If it is 26, then great. If it is 650b, then it probably has some advantages and disadvantages. It should just be one damn size though. Three standards suck. At least 24 inch died off a little while ago. Well, maybe for everyone except for Kidwoo and his Bighit with Monster T's.

Added a comment about video Transition's 2013 Carbon Covert Features Cock and Balls Technology 7/2/2012 8:55 PM

"The Completely Optimized Carbon Kinetics utilized in production of the carbon structure are an industry first; only available on Transition Bikes...." Yeah, I'm sure Transition is the first company to optimize carbon. They MUST have put more R&D into it than Trek, Specialized, Santa Cruz and Giant. What a load of BS. In reality it probably works just fine, and lots of riders will say how sick it is over a PBR.

I'd be stoked if Lopes could come on here and comment, I'm curious about the use of the dropper. Were there tech sections where this made up time or was the race just a sprint? I'd imagine anyone (especially Lopes) willing to add about a half a pound of weight to the bike would have it pay off in certain areas of the course.

Tubular makes perfect sense for DH. No thorn flats to really worry about, which is a downfall of tubular tires, no tubeless goop, which is a downfall of regular tubeless. No burping, which is why I won't run tubeless. Same pressure, same casing, just ... more »

Gary, thank you so much for all the great photos. I'm so thankful that you won't have to put up with Seven anymore. The guy is crazy. I mean, who really wants to put cheese on french toast? Phuk man.

I'm hoping that without that marble sized kidney stone you'll be twice as healthy. That's not saying much, but it is a start. Heal up, and go for the fentanyl.
