Lol, I wondered how long it would take...But in all seriousness I have a lot respect for engineers and the guys at SRAM, theres a local office in my town. But my personal experience has me going back to Shimano or Magura, just personal preference. The Avid/SRAM brakes that gave me the best reliability were old BB7's. Juicy's with horrible feel and reliability, Guides with their lever issues, my old Codes were finicky, my friends Levels with inconsistent bite...to each their own.

Good thing SRAM is doing their Level best to Guide us and de-Code the secrets of braking. That’s some Juicy info to gobble up.

Nowhere near as dramatic as some of these, but I can’t help but think of Connor Fearon at Leogang. Had the ride of his life and ends up losing out to Gwin with no chain. That’s gotta sting

How about a generator/dynamo built into the crank/bottom bracket? Less draw than a high idler bike. Would probably still need a small battery or capacitors to keep some reserve power but no plug in charging required.

Think it’s safe to say this racing move is already getting a lot more interest and feedback than if it read “Bike Company XYZ Welcomes Neko”. It would be nice to Isaak make it to more overseas WC’s as well. One off handmade bikes For The Win and by FTW

Or you could try to understand how something like that could happen by accident. 99% of the between the tape is legit. End of a stage, redlined, muddy goggles? It’s possible it was on purpose, but if your purposely going to cheat your looking for places to do so without a line of participants with waiting phones to capture it.

@blacker_canyons, this winning bike was intentionally posted 12 hours after the race finish. there is no reason for us to wait any longer than that.

Coming to a mountain bike news website after a world cup and not wanting to see spoilers would be like logging onto ESPN during the playoffs and hoping to not see who won the game you care about.

Winning Bike - Loris Vergier's Trek Session at Maribor

Genuinely curious, what’s an appropriate time to say anything about who won? Your original post was about 12hrs after I found out who won watching the replay. If I watch the news 12 hours after a football or baseball game I’d expect to see spoilers going to a news site.

Inside the last 2 years my recent bikes have gone from full 29 - 27.5 - 27.5+ - Mullet - back to full 29. The only spares that were affected where tires, which wasn't an issue since I don't really run the same tire F & R anyways. I see it as really ... more »

I'd love a PUSH a shock, but I'm a heavy rider and can't get a spring rate that would work. Next best option for me was a custom tuned DVO Topaz.

I bet that rides like a dream. Just add a Push rear shock to it!

How's it ride in SLO? Pretty rough terrain, I'm curious how the Trust fares.

You definitely won't mistake it for a long travel bike. It tracks really well and doesn't dive under braking the same way as a normal fork. It is sensitive to the direction of the impact, slapping the front wheel down off a drop gives more feedback than normal. When you get on a fast and chunky section of trail it comes alive though. it has some compromises but I've been really happy with it. I added a couple of volume spacers in each air spring, allowing me to run a little less initial pressure and keep bottoming resistance. It has the rally car type feel as opposed to a trophy truck/plow mobile.

Sick dude! Ran the same set up for awhile. Maybe not the sexiest looking fork but nothing beats them for certain terrain. You can place your front tire anywhere and it just tracks.

If there ever was a frame made for a linkage fork, here it is!
