Can't wait to see all these new rockshox/sram goods released to the public. They've been cookin!

Half of these aren't even legit rumors, just people doing some social media stalking at taking wild guesses

Reply to Rear tyre - fast rolling, good cornering - Aggressor, Minion SS, Rock Razor 3/26/2018 9:12 AM

All this really comes down to what kind of trails you ride most, how steep they are, and what the dirt composition is. I could see where a minion SS would shine but for my trails, it would be a wild tire to run. I really recommend the Aggressor, awesome ... more »

The Elevensix is one amazing shock, everyone I know loves theirs and can't speak more highly of it. I would be stoked to get one onto my nomad 4 soon! The only thing that I think holds a lot of riders back from getting one is the price tag, me included. ... more »

Reply to Does the New UCI President Really Care About MTB? 9/21/2017 11:13 AM

What would it actually take for the sport of downhill to break away from UCI and start their own international series free of UCI's bullshit (couldn't think of a better word). EWS has been so successful and I love how there's always new venues, it's ... more »

Regardless of what bike he's riding, I just want the man to win world champs this year, definitely deserves it.

Reply to How many riders in the 2017 Lourdes World Cup DH Top 10 will be on 29ers? 4/19/2017 1:39 PM

I think it's a trail bike, I'm pretty sure I see a dropper post and a bottle cage

Eliot doesn't really hide that Giant is testing 29ers as well. Like Sideshow said, I think the majority of the elite teams are going to be on 29ers. So what's the count of teams running big wheels that we know of already? Giant, cube, mondraker, santa ... more »

You can also see that it's a raw aluminum frame, so clearly a prototype frame.

I imagine Commencal's team will be running bikes similar to this, but with some bigger wheels
Reply to 2017 Racing Rumors 2/16/2017 10:29 AM

I'd say it's more of a marriage between a commencal and and evil. looks rad!

Noticed that Sam Hill is still on the chain reaction roster, maybe we'll see him at a few world cups this year?

Just stirring the pot here, but there must have been some serious shit that went down between specialized and Sram if they dropped their sponsorship for suspension and brakes for both of their elite teams....

He says in the comments that its a 29er #26isstillrad

Xfusion? Hmmm a bit of a surprise, are you sure? theyre not the lightest or strongest either, I know someone that bent a few pairs of lowers from them, why not drop the ohlins internals into a lighter boxxer chasis? I stil think it's ohlins' own chasis ... more »

Really curious why the specialized team is running formula brakes now. Are they that much better than avid codes or other offerings from sram? I remember gwin tested them before signing TRP Looking forward hearing their reasoning behind the switch

I can see needles teaming up with Scott, him and fairclough are good homies and I think andrew would kill it on a gambler
