I was watching it on the Olympic Channel which I think was the NBC broadcast. I tried to watch on Redbull.tv through a VPN (france and netherlands) and couldn't get it to play. It kept saying "broadcast error" or something.

That commentary was so cringeworthy I had to mute it at times.

Thanks for the response. I have an older 140mm pike on my Offering that came off another bike. I want to get a new fork soon, can't decide if I'll stick with 140 or go to 150. And if I go to 150 I can't decide between the Pike Ultimate or Lyrik Ultimate. Any reason you went with a Pike over the Lyrik?

Just an FYI... I'm currently watching Women's XCO via Hulu live app on my TV, it's on "olympic channel". I already had the app to watch College Football games, but I think they are currently offering a 1 week free trial so you could cancel after World ... more »

I'm actually really happy Trek copied the frame storage. Hopefully, this will give other frame manufacturers the green light to add storage to their frames. I'd love for the frame storage to become ubiquitous with carbon frames a la bottle mounts.

Yes, I read that part. I'm trying to take it one layer deeper, do they cover up the part because they are bitter that they don't get official support, therefore, they don't want to advertise for them? Do they have something in their contracts that prevents them from showing the logo? I seem to remember Gwin running different drivetrain components a few years ago (maybe the first year on YT) because he didn't have an official drivetrain sponsor, but I don't remember him covering up the logos.

Can someone explain the tape over the cranks (and maybe derailleur too?) I understand the whole Maxxis sharpie thing, that seemed to always be riders that were sponsored by one tire company but electing to ride Maxxis so they actually had a chance of placing. This doesn't seem to be an instance where they are sponsored by one crank company but are choosing to ride Sram. Are they just bitter that Sram doesn't officially support them?

Yea, I've been jaded by Onyx. I don't think I could go back to normal hubs. With frames and drivetrains being nearly silent nowadays, then the silence of hubs, the only thing that makes noise when riding is the braaaap of the tires on dirt.

Wish they would have partnered with Onyx. Silent hubs for life!

Any mention of faster rolling tires in EXO+? 95% of my riding can be done with a Semi-slick rear. Specialized Butcher and slaughter in Grid casing have been my go-to for the last 3 years, wanna try something new.

I wish I lived somewhere where running a dual crown on an Enduro bike was actually something to consider.

In the butchers he was running 2.3. He said he prefers a narrower tire because it forces him to be more precise with his line choices. Not sure on the Maxxis widths.

Exactly, the criticism of it being posted is childish and petty. Especially when it's the same outlet that has given so much favorable coverage to Gwin over the years, all the way back to the Yeti days. Its a cell phone video from a public race. It wasn't ... more »
