Liked a comment on the item TRAIL BIKE MULLET EXPERIMENT - Vital Gear Show 12/24/2019 3:16 AM

I'm guilty of running my Super8 in 26/24 guise. That thing could turn so sharp! And handled those stair gaps so well!

Kudos to that. I think the Social Media BS is just a blessing for corporate drones, they need metrics to justify their budget but on the long run I'm not sure it impacts the bottom line and more importantly contribute to make a sport and its community ... more »

Clout and Swag or Speed and Merit! Influencers give reach to brands but no value. Short-sighted marketer might not understand that for now. Diamond Back was cool under Mike King, not so much under Seth. Brands might fall for that for a while but I'm ... more »

I love the finish but you would have save some troubles with wireless axs. Maybe for next project, you could tackle some integrations with the brake lines (I think Magura did some concepts like that), I could also live without the shock lock.. or why not going electronic here as well?
Finally, the yellow Maxxis branding ruins the aesthetic.

Added reply in a thread Semi-Dumb Question: Most "fun" XC race bike? 10/31/2019 10:50 AM

Intense sniper and the Unno are probably the best in my book and the most progressive and by progressive I mean not antiquated. It still blew my mind how XC bikes are so wrong. I understand XC bikes are focused on climbing, they need to be light and ... more »

How is it possible to judge style when they are so different, WIld and furious: Andreu, Precision and Control: Semenuk... it's like judging Mozart style against the Sex Pistols!!

I don't think they should give a medal to everybody but they could have a collection of awards for different categories that would make more sense: creativity, precision, speed!

Added reply in a thread Specialized & The Global Climate Strike - Marketing BS or Meaningful Initiative 10/23/2019 2:28 AM

A problem is that in bike parts most of the value is not in the part itself but in the infrastructure to deliver this part to the customer. As a result, it's most of the time outrageously cheaper to buy something new than to fix the old. Companies don't ... more »

Let's start to see who is at the end of their contract? I'm especially interested in - Jack Moir: the Shark is ready for new waters - Thibaut Daprella: upcoming top Elite to grab, it would be a great asset for an upcoming team - Veronika Widmann: the ... more »

Well, it doesn't have to be mandatory for a race team participating to a UCI event but it could be a requirement for a TRADE TEAM. These teams receive a preferred treatment from UCI, it sounds normal they would also have to bring some value to the UCI ... more »
