I would go with Rotorua when it's not raining, but even with a drizzle the soil is still good. The mud is generally not the sticky kind too as it rolls off the wheels quickly and doesn't leave your tire looking like a fatbike's. A close second would ... more »

Agreed. I don't recall anything on the article that wasn't already mentioned here. Besides, vital's Racing Rumors thread has always had far more information than any other english-language mtb sites (I do hear the French and German sites have a lot of ... more »

I wonder who would come up with an integrated mtb wheel system first, a tire manufacturer or a rim manufacturer?

Is MIPS really worth the premium price?

More mainstream sponsors will always be good for the sport.

I wonder what other stuff RL will oufit Reynolds with though (he is pictured with Astars knee pads) as I don't think Polo has any safety gear or even outright DH/Freeride apparel. ... more »

Very helpful feedback! Definitely a lot more to consider (price, sizing, availability, parts, etc.) but your comments on kinematics certainly gives people a lot to think about. Cheers!

If that's true then kudos to Devinci. The kid deserves a factory ride and I'm sure he'll get a lot better results now. He could be the next Callahan.

Would you consider this bike better than the Polygon Square One? Great articles, btw.

That's a gorgeous build.

How does it pedal? Does it feel more like an AM bike more than an FR bike when going uphill?

Mick Hannah, while being interviewed on WynTV, just mentioned that Wyn was going to retire (as per Wyn's brother Eddie). It looks like Wyn is going to go full enduro next season, I reckon. Which team, though?

Nice. I would've thought Intense would have won a couple considering many of the other manufacturers used their bikes back in the day.

I'm certainly interested to find out which bike (or manufacturer) has had the most World Championships.

It appears Sam Hill is quitting DH for good and will go full enduro.

The Finn Iles to Devinci rumor was also on the 2017 Racing Rumors thread, along with Bulldog leaving GT. Not sure if both rumors happen this time, though.
