Maybe, but it’s not a M29. Unless that’s a 220mm rotor.

That is 100% an M29. Pic for reference: https://www.pinkbike.com/photo/16513622/

Did anyone notice Jackson Frew won the Aussie race this weekend on a Factory Kona set-up (Kona, Sram, Deity, We Are One...) Looks like Connor Fearon's new teammate for 2019!

So, still no word on Dakota Norton? How cool would it be to see Gwin, Neko and Norton on Intense? All American team on an American brand?

Dak signed with Devenci last year so I imagine he has 1-2 years left on his contract.

Got a pop up in FB that the Trek DH Racing team (the Athertons) changed their website address. Had a look, it is just the Athertons with web address athertonracing.co.uk. When clicked it reroutes to Trek (still) But someone is changing their FB page and Rachel mentioned Wednesday as news day. So let’s see!

They've used the athertonracing.co.uk domain for years. I even bought stuff there in the past, back when they were still with GT and 27.5 was still in the prototype stage for DH bikes.

I'm quite sure they will be refreshing nameservers in the coming days to bring it back to that domain name.

Yep, didn’t mean the athertonracing.co.uk domain name is new. My yellow and black GT jersey is a testament to that I just meant: something is brewing as they are fiddling with their pages

Looks like there is an LG sticker there, on the rim, and that’s an Onza tire I believe.

Mavic and michelin for the mondraker boys

|

1/22/2019 2:38 AM

Michelin back on the DH scene is such a good thing to see! There's no school like the old school!!!

Um any news on the Giant team surly we cant see the same bike unchanged for the 3rd year in a row!?! and as for the the Athertons hopefully they don't end up looking like mountie's

About Mondraker : "Also new for 2019 is a restructured co-factory team with Eleonora Farina, Thibault Laly and Brage Vestavik on board. "

The other thing I see here is the "ODI SIGNATURE DOWNHILL NUMBER PLATE", which we know is AG's personal products he worked on.

Looks to be a Kenda Hellkat tire and Mallet pedals. Does Jack use Crank Bros? Any idea on the shifter? TRP, Sram?

1/22/2019 6:12 AM

Defo not Sram.

The pedals are probably HT X2's which are Gwin's pedals.

Looks very much like a Mallet

If you ask me, that pedal is definitely a Mallet.
