Kiran MacKinnon (works for SC) using the same idea: shorter reach, backwards buzzworks and longer stays. He and I talked about it at Tamarack and he thinks it's all relation of body weight/position to BB. he also thinks longer reach is yanking riders too far forward these...more

477mm rear end, and interestingly they got rid of the Buzzworks headset to make the front end 8mm shorter. All my life I've heard how short chainstays corner better, but Greg seems to be doing fine on the limousine. I hope all the engineers at SC talk to each other, because...more

This would be a really fun race course! Off camber loose rock turns, jumps to flat, dry blown out berms, and long sprints before entering incredibly rough sections are the reason I love downhill.

We're going to be reviewing these, so we'll have a lot more information for you in time...

I'm disappointed to see the large inboard bearing, you'll end up standing on it at some point in a race run and it will keep your shoes from full pin penetration. My favorite part of the old pedals was the uncompromising grip (with the longer than standard pins) no matter where your foot was placed and the uninterrupted platform was the main reason for that. The lack of a raised inboard bearing on the old pedal essentially afforded me an extra and necessary 10ish mm of usable platform for my larger than average foot wearing 5.10 Impact shoes. What is the platform size on the new Plus model pedals and are longer pins available from E-13?

Don't be a dick. This is a good thing, a rider can race every discipline on a short travel 29er now.

they already qualified in their home countries. Thats all the qualification that is needed. No need to have another round of qualifiers at Worlds. No reason to cut a small handful of riders out. Just plain sucks for everyone.

What is different this year is riders have to qualify. Not many seem to this know as it’s not been well communicated. Sad really. For some small nations, You do what you have to to make the team, your one chance on a world stage you’ve earned and your week may be over after Friday...more

Its funny, I was just talking to a buddy about how a company could come in right now and absolutely blow 5-10 out of the water if they make a shoe like the old impacts. Hopefully these guys are on to something

take this with a grain of salt, but the only unconfirmed reason i've heard was that if an overall could have been clinched via qualifying points, it would make the finals race (webcast) less exciting. was also told other sports do this. still seems weird to me.

natural trails that only required a minimal amount of clearing and grooming are the way to go. all my favorite trails are natural and raw no bike park crap
