I don't really understand why you'd want a helmet with removable chin guard?
Especially when they cost more than a proper DH helmet and XC helmet combined.
Is it so you can remove the chin bar multiple times on a single ride? Does anyone actually do that?

Not everything old is a "classic".
Balfa were just as terrible in 2002 as they are now.
At the UK races there was only ever a couple

@slyfink, that's not a thing. Reach for descending position = reach for descending body position. Enduro and DH bikes are both optimized for descending.

I don't think they have an official tyre sponsor either do they?

I'd be interested to know what size frame Loic rides.
Of the new Demo's available in shops, they don't seem to go very large. And the similar-ish new Enduro has larger frame sizes available, just wondering why the Demo doesn't have the same size range

So much tension at the start of this interview. Then it got great. So much insight. My favorite so far.

Narrow for most wheels?
I have a feeling that history will look back on the trend for super wide rims in the same way that the short lived trend for super low front ends a couple of years ago was. That being it was trendy for a while until everyone noticed that no one actually-fast uses it

Slightly boring comment, but by my rough calculations, that's a 60.5° head angle. Ooof!

Being an owner of a 1320 wheelbase 29er, there are also some comedic downsides not mentioned in this article - largely based around logistics - the bike doesn't fit anywhere!
At least, not anywhere your previous bike did easily.

The most annoying of these issues is chairlifts. It's funny at first, but when your bike has fallen off its 4th chairlift station and destroyed yet another £25 mech hanger, it really starts to get pretty annoying.

So watch out for chairlifts where the bike's front wheel sits in a hoop or wheel bucket - like that in Pila for example. The back wheel drags on the floor and tips the bike out

Cool! Thanks for the reply.
So not just yet another rebranded CST tyre.
It's a shame the main review doesn't feature the information in your post.
