Honestly, it makes sense. Wiggle seems to be getting crushed by Competitive Cyclist, JensonUSA and CRC (mostly CRC because CC sucks). Why not go one bigger and dominate? But hey.

Had to giggle a bit at the length of this thread (and the OP who brought my name into it), but it's damn good seeing your name up there, Jeff.

Question 2: When it comes to a DH 'race bike', what are your opinions on head angle/chainstay lengths/head tube length? Is there a 'perfect' geometry that optimizes speed and performance without sacrificing handling? Also: favorite get up kids live-performance ... more »

Todd, as someone who has been inside of the DH scene for so long (and who was at USAC), what disparities do you see between the Euro DH racing scene and the US courses? Do good riders rise to the top of the WC based on their training ground courses?

Added a comment about feature Opinion: When Does Risk Outweigh the Reward? How Red Bull Rampage Changed Our Perspective 10/18/2015 10:23 PM

Excellently said. The riders do choose to get up there and compete for themselves, but as you said: the FEST series is far, far different than the biggest annual single event for RedBull where millions are made. These men are pushing the very limits not just of our sport, but of human ability. And instead of valuing their contributions and paying them what they deserve, our industry is treating them like circus animals. Pay them peanuts and those animals will always perform for the chance to earn popcorn, but these guys aren't products -- they're people. They aren't objects to be exploited, but irreplaceable, invaluable individuals with legacies and history and personal stories.

We've become too desensitized to massive risk, and so we devalue it. When is the reward enough?

Man I hope these last...Love the performance but with lower and lower bikes I'd be more than willing to take an extra 100 grams in the sake of durability.

Hmm... If Gwin wins the Quali, he'll win the race too, according to the stats, scary...

Atherton's Carbon Stan's ZTR DH Wheels

I believe the 'RACH' probably stands for 'Rachel'... But I'm also curious as to whether or not she'll move over. If she's running them at Val di Sol, they're in for a good bit of hell!

USAC is dumb. The other USAC that of cars tried this back before the '79 Indy 500. Back then that USAC was so lame the car owners broke away and started CART. Anyway that USAC tried to ban all teams involved with CART from entering the 500. The teams took them to court siting anti trust laws and...more
