The list says the Mayor RECOMMENDS a suspension. Can't you just read what you are posting? this is being lazy. The key part is: It was also decided to recommend to the organizing entities the postponement of the following events: Those are 2 lists. List ... more »

Dude at least read what you are posting. Yes the World cup is on that list but not as an order but as a recommendation. I get that panic gets clicks to the site but this is BS. So yes it's included in the list but it is not said to be banned yet and ... more »

Carbon Enduro Gearbox Bike - The Zerode Taniwha

I don't think a super high pivot makes sense on a 160mm frame. I get it that some people want a bike that has plowability close to a dh bike but it takes all the fun out of having a smaller, lighter more nimble bike. For me enduro bikes have to be more agile so you get to play around more on them.

I've seen some people do this before. It's a good idea if you don't want to pump like a madman

A bike with proper suspension design will pedal good without the need for fancy switches. Another XC oriented product trying to enter bigger bike teritory. We already have too many "enduro" bikes that turn and ride like xc bikes.

The Wheelbase isn't growing in any way. Both wheels go towards the frame with the suspension lowering the stability as you go into travel thanks to lower wheelbase.

As for the rearward travel there is another problem - rapidly growing chainlength is a strange feeling and it is very hard to adjust to it for many riders. Another problem it is much harder to dial the chainstay length to the rearward component. There are many rearward bikes that while feeling great through the chop feel very sluggish in corners.

Using the shock you can counteract the pedal bob but not the brake jack and not the problem with carrying speed over the rough.
The whole interview really screms to me Mike has very little idea about FS bikes. Instead of creating a plush begining with leverage rate he went for low friction bushings which will be not noticeable once the shock friction and damping comes into place.
Also low friction in suspension should not be a priority for a dh bike.

Not to mention the weight currently seems like wishful thinking

That is true. Unless the braces sit perfectly and don't shift they can break you collarbone. I know I did break mine on my brace. Even felt the leverage on it. Really terryfied of trying a new brace after loosing some serious dough and time on surgery.

Never understood why some mfg's point out the weight of a very lightweight build instead of frame weight. My banshee legend is 1lb lighter with some heavier parts so the frame actually may not be that light. Not really fair tbh.
