The tone might be a miss for this launch, but MFF is a rad company doing a great job in the road market. I'm glad to see them dipping a toe in MTB and hopefully they can get a more dialed "we know what we're doing" vibe without losing their noteworthy inclusive vibe. I think we...more

Word at the time was that Dan was the driving force behind that version of the Sanction. (Poor GT engineers didn't seem to get much credit...)

Would love to see a new carbon rim shootout. One bike multiple rims and a series of repeatable tests.

Noble's Sine-wave rims, the new crop of WAO rims, the Cranks brothers Synthesis, the Revel carbon rim, SC reserves and whoever else wants in. I wanna see these all...more

Or somebody put a KHS label on a Trek because KHS couldn't/didn't provide a frame for a sponsored racer. Maybe KHS just doesn't have DH frames available right now because of the pandemic.

Looks kinda like the inside of a ferry or train? The spy shots game is really heating up.

The only small German suspension brand I can immediately think of is Intend. That would be a surprising move.

I seem to recall he favored those pants for a while. Pretty sure he was wearing them in this vid: Vital RAW - Richie Rude and Jubal Davis (2019)

Rachel Atherton's baby will be the 3rd Syndicate rider. But actually, I guess we won't see Rachel racing much this year. Maybe Atherton Bikes will launch a custom carbon/titanium balance-bike to celebrate?

One from the driveside, just for fun.

Old MTBR forum posts list a 7.5" eye-to-eye and 2" stroke shock: Thread from 2004Thread from 2005 If you have the original shock on hand, you could measure & confirm those dimensions. The OEM spec shock was a proprietary model from Giant (see manual).

"...a completely new chassis designed, developed and manufactured in Andorra by Production Privée at the Forestal Technology Centre." So, sort of both?

Personally I'm more curious about the ability to drop the saddle nose for steep climbs and re-level it for longer sections of flat terrain. That might not be applicable for everyone, based on where and how they ride, but the idea being able to produce ... more »

Thank you. Now back to our regularly scheduled program of 'Guess the new Syndicate rider.'

Not to toot my own horn too much, but I actually did guess Norco based on the silhouette.

https://www.aenomalyconstructs.com/ Seen over on you-know-where. I'd like to try one; I think the idea has merit. The mechanism seems pretty small, so not sure about long-term durability, but it's got me curious.

Danny to Cube confirmation is live on the Vital homepage now. It's been the second-most talked about rumor of the off season, behind Loris, but still seems sort of surprising. (Edit: typing on mobile is slow; y'all beat me to it)

Very curious about Giant for 2021. With Marcelo already gone and Eliot now off the team as well, are they supporting any factory DH riders besides Jacob Dickson? Doesn't seem like there are many " _____ to Giant" rumors out there... Perhaps they're concentrating ... more »
