OneUp. Nicely big, great grip, great weight and super price.

I guess opposite to Masters Champs, they simply have to put some cap on the number of elite riders, otherwise there could be potentially too many riders? So that's why they run qualification, so even if there is less then 80 riders total, you have to qualify.

According to the rules, anyone top-80 who started should be good to go for finals. Had there been more than 80 riders at the start, you would have had to worry about actually qualifying (unless you were protected as a top-20 rider in the current UCI World Cup standings).

So what happened to GOAT? First, he landed 7th place but later he is shown DSQ (still Q as protected).

Sam on a raw frame. Possible prototype or a custom size to match his riding style while keeping 29" wheels?

I think Cesar Rojo is doing Masters regularly.

Isn't that a production swingarm? What happened to protos they were running?

It almost feel like that Demo is designed with that wheel size in mind while Saracen was butchered from original 29" so there is a bigger gap – wheelbase (visually).

Also some interesting info – wheel size X rider height

1st place – 29"/27.5" – 180cm (Loic)
2nd place – 29" – 190cm (Greg)
3rd place – 27.5" – 167cm (Troy)

AL is here definitely for quicker testing. Same with Stump EVO which arrived first in AL to test the market. As for other parts, maybe just the preference of riders / what is available by their sponsors / what makes most sense for DH race. I can image that AL bars are here in case of crashing and still being able to get on bike and finish which would probably not happen with carbon bars.

Not a big fan of fat headtubes and that shape that is created after further into the frame, but overall it looks nice. And some smart things on frame such as that stash or placement of bottle holder into the frame to use the space. Looks a little bit short to my taste but I did not ride it so... However no idea why so much hate here...

But I would question if it make sense to buy 5 years old bike. What is the deal? What model we talk about? With a lot of direct sales brands and more companies on the market, one can buy an amazing bike for good price these days...

I would not be surprised that it is due to fact that you can't simply put just a smaller wheel on back and that's it. Saracen created a new linkage to keep the same geo with small wheel in back, I guess same is happening for Specialized. But those are ... more »
