WOW! Loic is the latest rider to master the art of putting together runs at Worlds! Looks like he and Loris sitting out of MSA paid off. Also so stoked to see Vali carry the momentum she's been building this season and take the rainbow stripes. But, it's hard to look past Cami's 4th place just...more

DH is the best.

Comments about winning bike: What’s wild is Loic demo mullet setup is in short chainstay setting ( if he kept it same as previous pics of his bike). Turns out top shelf bike handlers can do a lot with an agile ride. I think modern bike designers and reviewers are forgetting...more

Thx Thom, I also ride an HT and currently use a Maxxis Aspen 2.4. It's pretty harsh and the grip is marginal if best. I have a 2.6 DHF/DHR tires on my FS bike, will try your setup. Thx again

Thanks! The only handling advantage is that I can run pretty low pressures and with a Rimpact it feels quite controlled, damped. It’s not suspension but it helps. And I find it less bouncy/ pingy than running a full 29er setup.
My favourite rear tyre is the Aggressor but they don’t make a 2.8, hence the Rekon. But I actually really like it too. It’s seen as a light weight, which it is but it has a great balance of grip/ pedal ability just like the Aggressor. Imo.

Not a single 27.5 in other words. Ball scrapers only.

I’m using some M15x1 crank bolts in this one. They work fine but I will most likely get some use specific ones going forward. That’s one area that is due to change so for now I’m using the closest I can get off the shelf.

nice. Whats the geo/travel?

Thanks! Travel is 140 rear and I’ve designed this one for a 150mm 29er fork. Geometry on this (because it’s mine) is slack and short….62° HA, 430mm reach, 430mm chainstay. They’ll be custom front triangle geometry once I have everything dialled.
