Why not split the diff and make 650 (597mm) wheels a new standard?

That's hilarious. Maybe someone stole his shoes a while ago and he created hardline.

Gee won in Cairns in 2014 on borrowed shoes; now Rachel won in Lourdes on wrong-size spare shoes... has anybody tried hiding Dan's shoes from him to see what might happen?

Trek using a wide flanged/short cassette body, centerlock DH hub, spotted in the Dave Trumpore slideshow on PB. It's been a long time since there has been a Saint revision, could this be a new Shimano hub?

King made them a custom boost hub but it's not pictured on this bike & neither is their custom angled headset. I have a feeling this is his practice bike which was built before they had the new parts.

this thread just went to 11 fir sure and leafs me wondering, what wood WC riders think about changing the UCI rule to allow 27.5/29ers?

I wholeheartedly disagree: drunkwarner and freecaster made racing great again.

We're seeing the result of having 'a future'. Not showing anywhere near the entire field coming down the course, wasting 20 minutes explaining what a bike is instead of showing racing, and a severe lack of Warner's...more

Little Robio is obviously jealous of DJ Trumps big beautiful hair. Sad really.

Kona Honzo

Thank you to the incredible people of VitalMTB. This is huge. I mean people said it was a big honor, but it's huge, believe me. This bike is long, as it has been very well documented, are various other parts of my body. Sorry losers and haters, but my Honzo is one of the longest and lowest and you all know it. Please don't feel so stupid or insecure, it's not your fault.
