I didn't watch the video, but find it interesting you say in the last two sentences, ... we are probably at the beginning of a new era of technological development... and "the godfather of suspensions". those are not really dependant.

happy his bikes make people feel good :-)

Sweet steed! As I can see you had the previous Capra before, I think many of VitalMTB readers would appreciate few words about comparing both bikes once you spare some time on this one (including me)

hmm. it is a sticky topic. Justin Leov raised it last week ( but he forgot he lives in Finale Ligure and most likely has the advantage for the last event, eh?). There are two solutions: 1) cut new trails for each race so that no one has ridden them and ... more »

attention to details, eh - in the tire width comparison shots, you have an abused tire on the wider rim and you shot them in different tread directions! Oh, and out of focus on the top shots... sheesh. lucky I'm only good at complaining :-D
