"SRAM will only make the Eagle chainring in the direct-mount style at first, and we were told it's the only Eagle component compatible with their 1x11 drivetrains." Here, I saved you $350

Chains have stayed 3/32" inner width for decades. Every narrowing has been done to the outer width. Note how KMC basically downsized their pin measurement every time another rear cog has been added.

To maintain intended levels of anti-squat on frames designed for 2x?

Sounds like what Fox intended with the CTD. I'd speculate they had their reasons for not linking the dropper to the suspension, and why mfgs, besides Rocky Mtn and Scott, didn't link the front and rear susp settings together. I don't use lockouts for ... more »

Frankly, I like vids where I can see fine details of everything from rider technique to how the trail's built. I prefer slow-mo vids where I have more time to notice details. I have a peeve against speeded up video at the "good parts". I generally like ... more »

Bar height. I find hard to adapt to a bike set up with an upright-position. High rise bars, lots of spacers under the stem, stem rising upwards... the horror! I will admit that I'm more leg than torso though.

Well, that's one way to get discs into the peloton... but it makes their bike less aero!

I hope that's not a field of poodle dog bush that the photog's standing in (purple stalks).

There is a production model that offer settings to provide 250W of power for up to 30 mins,100W for 1h, 50-75W for 1.5h. A higher end model runs silent (ceramic) and hide its batteries better. If you're like me, that's hardly any less than my own body's ... more »

Also, don't forget that CX racers can have a bike swapped as sort of a pit stop thing, such as if one's overly covered in mud, often with a very similar, if not identical setup.

Yes, let's not forget how easy it is to wrongly accuse people of "mechanical doping" out of ignorance. That poor guy not only got wrongly accused, but also had his bike run over (destroyed) by the motorbike (heavy, carrying 2 people).

17 Bikes Tested - 2016 Vital MTB Test Sessions

Orbea and Turner looked so smooth (have a bit of trouble with that Commencal? laughing ). Jamis's crank seemed to almost stay perfectly level--wonder if that right amount of kickback was designed in, or if it were just coincidence. Was paying attention to cable routing on some of them, and Turner has the most locked down setup of them all.

I can speculate why you had so many chain drops with NW setups... mainly because I have had the same prob with my RF NW rings.

I remember seeing this at Sea Otter too. 230+70mm of travel, I heard. I'm more interested in their Mixer and hope to hear Vital's post-trail-thrashing opinion on it sometime soon.
