That's endless debate, front and rear tires don't need to work the same way...
It performed well on the front this season and is still in perfect shape compared to the DD at the back, I weight 75kg and the tracks in Portes du Soleil are not that rocky

[EDIT : in answer to the wrong number '2kg' that was mentioned above, not to compare the build to another.]

Danger Holm' Gambler is sub 14kg.
I did build one XL with Öhlins at 15.3kg, wonder how much it would weight with a dropper and an Eagle cassette tho

I wonder when we'll start seeing trolls from Rachel again.

How about the part around 19 mins where he said the downside of 29ers and that if he wanted to ride steep stuff, the large rear wheel would be a problem? Would you call that a "push" or "double down"? wink

Some people mentioned this unit from Öhlins https://www.ohlins.com/product/ttx36-mkii-ec/ It's the most plausible answer to me atm.

The telemetry bike must carry verins front & rear, a box and multiple wires all around connected to it to collect full data. A spare bike for telemetry as Specialized use to do usually doesn't have a custom worldchamp paintjob.

I think this bike is really ugly but heaps better looking than the current gen Spartan. Maybe it just looks futuristic, and I acknowledge beauty is in the eye of the beholder anyway.

They are custom, you have to message them to get a pricing according to what you want.

Scott Gambler Tuned 2020

I think it's real, mine ended at 15.3kg, XL, 29", DH38 + TTX Coil.

I would have kept the Syncros fender tho, these wrapped plastic shits are hideous :[

depends how tall you are... would be dumb to run a short bike just for a proper bb height with 27.5

Custom SCOTT Gambler Raw Carbon

After enough days in different places and settings barely moving now I can tell what I came up with :

Bodyweight 75kg / typical terrain -> Morgins
Stock tuned DH38 & TTX Coil
*clicks from closed except HSC*

DH38
Pos chamber 100psi
Ramp chamber 220psi
HSC 0 on 4
LSC 1
Rebound 10

TTX Coil
Rate 480
HSC 0 on 3
LSC 5
Rebound 3

The bike is so light that you need to open the HSC to let it dive fast enough over the roots but you end up to the extreme setting and can't open it further to play around.
On the opposite, I felt the LSC on the fork to be not restrictive enough, I'm here on the other extreme again and can't get it more closed.
SAGs are perfect, but I may close the fork HSC 1 more step for steeper tracks like Champery.

That seat placement makes me nervous, seen a couple of those I beam saddles snapped off over the years
