760mm is wide for a dude who is under 6 feet tall.

I read a while back something like the Avid Codes are a bit more of a powerful caliper but a lot of the riders prefer the lever feel on the Sram Guides so they run the Sram lever Avid caliper combo.

I think that's the case anyway.

I have seen it on a few bike checks recently.

One of the worst looking paint jobs I've seen in years, needs all black boxxers to calm it down a bit but definitely not a good look.

The SRAM Guide Lever, Paired with a AVID CODE Dual pot / Quad piston calliper.

It's because the Guides are crap, and they know it . I am doing the same myself.

Correct, the Code lever still had the classic Avid/Sram lever body flex.

The guides still have this , but far less of it than that of the code lever - the Code calliper is far more powerful.

Guides just suck.

Direct mount chainring on a DH crank, is this new? Or can you do it with the sram xo1 DH cranks??

Would there be a possibility of CRC moving to M90 rims (since ENVE has been bought by Mavic's parent company)?

The wheels they are all ready using are more reliable!
