Dont even think about ruining this thread with your so called "facts".

Everybody should read into this and post wild speculation disguised as fact. Along with Skiing viewer statistics.

the parts the arrows are directed at are normal, i dont know about that axle on the forks though. for what its worth, and given that i cant read greek, the canyon looks to be in the best condition with a pretty good spec for a starter bike, also fox ... more »

Seems a strange list considering the price difference of a YetiSB5c compared to a spectral, but thats beside the point. I think the question is really what sort of riding you enjoy and what characteristics you enjoy in a bike? I honestly dont think you ... more »

A team based in the Alps? a team of Alpine Stars you could say?

"Look at Wyn. I love that dude but I don't think his top 30 WC race performance or party antics are really selling bikes or by your account all the bigguns would be knocking down his door". He just signed with GT, are they not a big enough brand? I think ... more »

Only an assumption, theres nothing about how long he signed with specialized but he was going to sign with Trek for 3 years.

Maybe if it were phrased differently; Gwins contract is expiring and the amount he asked for was not within Specialized's budget, so they walked. Maybe YT then expressed interest through Zink, and again maybe he was asking more than YT were willing to ... more »

It may just be my imagination, but didnt the video of Gwin signing for Specialized drop on boxing day? Im gonna go all in here and bet everything on YT.

Personally this is the way i think they'll do it; with the amount of kit Troy has been rocking the last season they're obviously positioning themselves for a big push into apparel- kit, protection, helmets. Paying guys like Troy, Jared and Curtis the ... more »

Now that would be interesting, wouldn't require a huge investment from from YT unless these new teammates are bigger names than Dirt has had in the past? Reid seems to run a really budget conscious team and does a hell of a good job, if he had a bigger ... more »

Up untill last month i was riding a demo, covert and on-one 456. all 26er. I was hating the fact that i had 3 really well specced bikes that i enjoyed riding but could only choose one for one type of riding. So i sold them all and got a process 153, ... more »

contractual obligations are contractual obligations. It would have seemed like a safe bet the athertons were staying on GT during the redbull foxhunt events, but less than a month or two later they've completely severed ties with GT and are now stoked ... more »

Pro move by Atherton not leaking any info there. Definitely a good move by Maes and whoever picks him up, even when Dan was injured last year and Maes was ripping it always seemed like he was covered like a sideshow to the Atherton main act, he definiteley ... more »

reminds me of the scene in Alien resurrection where they go into the room with all the failed clone hybrid alien/humans.... its oddly fascinating to look at and you wonder what it would be like to ride.

Money. Gwinn will be signed to a fairly large deal, and transporting brosnan from OZ every race will add up, then factor the sponsorship issues that arise from specialized having ropelato running ohlins suspension, gwinn running fox and brosnan running ... more »
