ZachOT, your story is inspiring. I love your former sport and appreciate your timely exit from it. You're doing your homework and making quality decisions. Enjoy your new bike and treat it well. By which I mean ride it hard and keep it nice. Welcome ... more ยป

OMG pass the funky shit! Finally, some REAL music. Love the Bboys.
I love watching Kirt ride. Smooth, and he can ride anything.

I wish 'style' played a little bigger part in some of the slopestyle that goes on. Despite the banger tricks, this just looks awesome.

I saw no boringness. All riders on both wheel sizes went as fast and ragged as they could. One size won. Another shows yet more promise. Neither were boring.

Woods section looks properly f*cked. Race is gonna be won & lost there, IMHO (irrespective of wheel size).

You sound hypocritical Loic. You're OK with the suspension constantly improving, OK with carbon prototype everything, OK with an increase from 26 to 27.5, OK with the heaps of technology that keep air inside your tires despite what you do to them, but...more

Just picking up on the point about speed. Are 29ers really going to be more dangerous? Take fort william for example - a generous estimate may be that these new 29ers are maybe 3-4 seconds faster over the entire track if you're lucky. What that comes...more

I'm having trouble with the argument that bigger wheels somehow offer too much control or stability, coming from a team that spends such a significant amount of effort suspension testing with a dedicated telemetry bike in practice, with the goal of...more
