1. it certainly is "a thing" - calling all trail builders? b. with that said, let me clarify what i mean about tracking up lips and landings. this consideration is for rhythm/dirt jump lines or pumptracks that are manicured and, as mentioned, SOFT. bigger knobs will track up lips and landings making the jumps deteriorate more quickly. there were a few times i rode by freshly groomed jump lines at our local park b/c it had rained and they tuned up the jumps. but the dirt was soft and i wasn't going to ruin the trail builders' work just because i was on this bike. i came back w/ my dirt jumper that has basically slick tires and had a ball. high-traffic jump lines in bike parks that are meant for trail/enduro/DH bikes (like any whistler bike park trail that is lift-assisted for instance) are not what i was referring to. thirdly. on hardpacked/blue grooved jumps/trails or paved pumptracks, the super knobby tires are less grippy than lower profile tires b/c the knobs roll too much on jump faces or in bermed corners.

have you had a bad experience personally with canyon? if so, post it here, we don't care and that would help others decide for themselves about buying from canyon. if you're only reading comments to back up your view of canyon having issues, then that's up to you. we are not actual canyon customers, we can not speak to GOOD or BAD customer experiences because we haven't had those experiences. it would be disconcerting if we chose a side to lean on, good or bad, without that experience. it would be disconcerting for us to only focus bad customer experiences. it would be disconcerting for us to only focus on good customer experiences. we focused on neither. we said do your homework to see what actual customers have said before you decide for yourself.

Maybe this has come up already, but how hard is Rachel going to go after every single race this season. What better way to put any brand on the map then win races. Maybe even a World title. I almost feel bad for the hurt she will put on the women's field this year.

If SRAM is testing rough prototypes, they should be selling retail units by late next week.
