Thats for rear shocks?

Im not sure what push and vorsprung are doing with their springs. Thats pretty cool that push are doing that and theyre adding the hhdraulic bottom out on their shocks too. Having both sounds like a good idea. Progressive ramp and no harsh ending sounds ... more »

The problem with a coil fork is its too linear. Used to love my 888 and 55 wc ti but they did bottom out lots. 888 would build air in the fork and control that until it got too much air. Then id screw off the top caps and burp them and start from scratch ... more »

Sounds like you're creating a narrative that it could only be eebers and then trying to find others to join in. Youre the guy at the back of the crowd yelling burn the witch bud

Two years ago it would’ve been EXO tires and a Fox 36 and 31ish pounds.

I vote that you differentiate by calling them whiner bikes and ebikes. Seems quite fitting after reading the comments. Tissue anyone?

Theyve got a good line up. Their 180/180 bike is pretty sweet. This one has a lot of fail. Shocks get hot , more so on a 160 bike than a 120 because itll see longer dh runs, so this makes no sense. Emtb doesnt need those shock adjust levers. Emtbs, more than mtb's, need external cables/brakelines because its an added pita routing around a motor. That stem cable system is a hard pass on the bike unless theres an external alternate option
The CoG is lower with the motor turned because it allows that larger battery to sit lower than it otherwise would. It may allow a shorter cs too, not sure on that.
Their bikes could use flip chips and dropout chips to run mullet, shorten/lengthen cs, slacker/steeper rather than useless shock levers. Im more apt to leave my shock full open when im climbing unless im on pavement or its super smooth

Really hoping Greenland can find an extra second or two. No one I want to see on the top step more this weekend.

So the sandbagging in qualifying isn't a thing from what I can tell. Pretty sure all the girls & boys tried to put down real runs to see what they have to beat tomorrow.

A good sign for women's racing is that all of the top ones are a second off each other,...more

Sams 3rd place is still the best wc run ever put down. I cant see anyone repeating that speed. Thibault would be hard to discount though

Yep it’s off. Reason it’s an Ebike is twofold - they are a big big team many riders and staff, so the ebike got the nod over a trail bike. Good for recovery and discovery and getting to the pits. Their training is quite regimented so it’s not like they need to go...more

Right? 3 races in one week with 350+ people within 4 hours of each other and I've seen nothing on PB about the Canadian races, but every other country's champs and race reports is kind of bullshit.

That being said, I was there and it was awesome to watch....more

Nice work Vital. I'm glad at least one MTB website is interested in covering the Canadian DH scene.
