It's the rider not the bike but a good bike sure helps. If Gwin rode gt he would still do good, you know cause he's Gwin but you get the point.

High quality aluminum bikes are way more durable than carbon. Hearing people I know breaking a carbon carbon frame isn't a rarity anymore.

How many 29ers have won the enduro world series overall. Zero, all 27.5. So for me that means it's the rider not the bike. I'm sure richie could ride a 29er and he might. I also think there will be 29ers on the world cup circuit at some point and it ... more »

Lopes is an older guy already, I do not see this as sponsorship, but it rather more like a job, and this guy is going to work on making this company somewhat popular again.
