Added reply in a thread Not another suspension setup question.. 4/26/2018 10:22 AM

When racing, suspension mechanics line of reasoning suggests you should only be bottoming out 1-3 times (max) on the track - this stands to reason that there is a huge compression/hole/jump (or all three) and that you'd use all of your travel on these ... more »

You can still make the mod, it's just not being sold in that configuration.

A headline, forthcoming: "Dad Joke racing is pleased to announce our new tire partnership! This season is definitely going to be a Goodyear...[insert chuckles]"

Strong point. Another good example would be Bernard Kerr at VDS World Champs two years ago, getting fourth after having almost two days less practice. Pros are Pros and get it done, doesn't matter who has had more time on track... Gwin only ever does ... more »

That was a pretty funny BTS video. And I'm wondering if we'll see Squids on yoga mats here...laying on rocks for a week sounds fun.
Similarly, I'm thinking back to the days in MSA when riders were running 40 PSI in their tires...
Trummer looked really dialed in the beginning of the team video - precise and accurate riding looks more important than ever.

Mike Levy was clueless on how to properly use the gearbox. I shift going uphill all the time. There is a rather simple technique to it but if you are hell bound on trying to find flaws in the system then I guess you will nitpick it to death.

I’m super stoked for Rob on this news...more

It is known that carbon fiber is regulated by Uncle Sam, but this is still intriguing, "...Department of Defense controlled, impact-resistant braided carbon coming through the lettering on the downtube." A new surplus leading to new material options?

A pang of nostalgia hit every time I viewed the shots and clips of Sam from the weekend; full spikes, with a ridiculous win margin...too good.

2019 air spring for sure. The Vorsprung option is just an expanded negative air, whereas RS's remodel is a whole new air seal (alloy with bushing) and an expanded neg air. One is an add-on, the other is a complete and more rounded improvement.
