I've heard rumors of one of treks brands going DTC, but nothing I can offer proof of other than a friend working at another shop mentioning it when we were out for a beer. But their packaging patent does point to it. I don't think large companies will ... more »

Added reply in a thread Shimano XTR M9200 10/25/2021 9:18 AM

Shimano is likely still licking their wounds a bit after the 12spd release/supply issues/scylence hub issues they had when XTR was released and won't release a top tier group without having everything perfect this time around. I also don't think Shimano ... more »

Interesting point, I haven't seen much in the way of hints or slip ups by industry people, even Warner kept his stick on the Ice at the last race but maybe there wasn't much to report. Last year bwe had all sorts of drama going on with Danny, Jack and ... more »

Guys..... There's not nearly enough talk about Huffy's new DH team in this thread. Someone knows, spill the beaaaaaaaaaaans. Who's on it.

Added reply in a thread Go with SRAM or stay with Shimano? 10/21/2021 1:16 PM

Fyi, after some desperation when parts weren't available this summer, local riders who just wanted to be able to ride just asked me to get their bikes going with whatever. This is when I found out that Shimano 11, 12 and eagle are all to a certain degree, ... more »

Just the tip

Kind of what I was asking. The current slash is a big bike, but for what most brands are currently running, there's only really room for one bike between the top fuel without wild overlap. They'd have to do half degree intervals up front an 12mm travel ... more »

I've been wondering that as well. With the top fuel moving well into Fuel EX territory, it seems to me the EX would get pushed into Remedy territory. Do they keep both or ditch one?

Holy hell.... I'm glad to hear I was wrong about it but fuck. Not worth it, that crash made me sick.

Honestly, Zink riding that chute as fast as he did was one of the highlights for me. I had a total Holy shit moment when he did it. Also, Riddle's moto style, amazing. I want more of that. All of those big moves over shadowed the rest of the crowd for ... more »

Yea... Not feeling positive about Tom's crash. That didn't look nice. I hope he's ok.

Shops often swapped the around while building them so that they were easier to deal with. Otherwise the crank has to be removed to get the shock out for a 50h service. It usually depended on the model. If it was a lower end bike we likely wouldn't see ... more »

That's the Clash vs the Furious for single crown and DH, the Furious has been their park bike for the last 4 years after the supreme went high pivot.

So I'm expecting about 6 people actually riding at the rate things are going.

Does anyone know whats with the Commencal FRS/Furious thing on their bikes? Did they run into an issue with naming rights? I noticed Kyle and Andreu's rampage bikes they'd changed it to FRS and its that way on the website as well. Seems like a Santa ... more »

Is zink on an older blacked out YT? Or is it just something i don't recognize?

Added reply in a thread MTB Tech Rumors and Innovation 10/11/2021 9:11 PM

If the bike is 5% better but 15-20% more to deal with and issues, is it a better bike? I can tell you the new spark and ebike are going to cost $$$ in repairs for the extra leg work to deal with the suspension and tuning the twinloc on the spark is going ... more »
