Binary Chuparosa Ti-HT+ Dream Build I9 XX1

Sweet, my buddy had a Klein back from like 99 or so custom painted purple to try and mirror how Ti looks. This is just on another level. I would hang it up and not ride it.

No offence, but I thought these are rumors, not predictions or what we would like to see?

A 30T on the front! Are you climbing with that beast?

I agree, and you will have 14 year old's (who try to trade their Kona Cowan and a Playstation 3 for a 29er dh bike) commenting on the future of DH racing.

Stop right there, you said rumors and pinkbike.

I thought Fearon had just resigned for 3 more years during the off season, same with Dean Lucas. The Bulldog just signed a 3 year deal with MS so he is not going anywhere. Seems funny that Trek would ditch their Atherton experiment after only 3 years ... more »

Why was there no chicken wire on the first corner, that might have made some riders feel a little more secure.

Looks wicked! I seriously thought about one of those before I got my Pole. How is that bar? 12 degrees seems like a lot?

I will wait until there are more hub companies on board (and a XT version) before I would look at the 12 speed set up. I have the one up 50T with a XTR shifter XT rear d set up on my bike now and it is great. I will be getting the pedals. I have the current ones and I have always wished the platform was a little longer, now the new ones are. You can find the new ones online from Germany for like $135 US and not the 180 Shimano has stated.

I have had two, 26 and the new one. Hands down the fastest most stable in the rough stuff dh bike I have owned. I think the longish wheel base does not hurt that. I had come off of a few different versions of the SC and Trek bikes. Rode it back to back ... more »

I highly doubt there will be an alloy option. They have not had one for years.

Added reply in a thread 2018 Racing Rumors 5/26/2018 7:06 PM

People said the same about Mondraker and their forward geo stuff. I have had 3 of their bikes and they ride amazing. I am waiting for my Pole fully buying into the longer front end. I do agree, they do not fit everyone, however you could say the same ... more »

Talked to the rep at the local demo the other day. He was pretty sure what you see next weekend is the production model of the V 10 29er.
