 I woulda thought he'd be running tubeless...
  • + 1
 very few people on the wc circuit run tubeless
  • + 1
 Especially on Fort William. They have lost a fair amount of air by the bottom of the track apparantly.

 Aren't those AM rims anyways?
  • + 3
 yes, I believe they are
  • + 5
 Either way Pro DH'ers are really pushing their bikes to the max, so, hard to tell what caused the crash...
  • + 1
 should have used mavic ex823's.. not saying his rims are what caused him to crash, but would have saved him some damage on his bike.

 That's what I thought. It IS the prototype. I found this guy who has photo's of it, and it looks kinda as if (call me f-ed up) it was a piece of the new Batman's armory or something Big Grin

 i wonder why he´s riding the old g2 rotors...
  • + 2
 why not? g2 are very good, but i think there could be g3 - he has Elixir breakes
  • + 1
 that´s why i wondered. he has elixir calipers but definitely rides the old g2 rotors. furthermore sram says, that the g3 rotors are much better than the old ones...
  • + 1
 hmm, maybe Sam just likes g2? a lot of people ride on them, so they are not so bad i think : ) may the "bad and old" rotors weren't the reason of accidentBig Grin

 The demo is very ugly, I think specialized is worse than ever before, the new specialized big hit and this demo is very stupid to go the same route
  • + 5
 specialized rules and all of their bikes get so much sicker every year.
  • + 8
 you've clearly never ridden the latest generation of Demo's, your chattin out of your arse
  • + 6
 That demo is pure sex, one of the most beautiful bikes out there!
  • - 10
 Specialized absolutely blow
  • + 4
 riiight, go back to your huffy buddy
  • - 7
 my pyre is nicer the that garbage demo 7
  • + 6
 Keep telling yourself that!
  • + 1
 The day banshee outdoes the biggest and best bicycle company in the world (specialized)sombody check hell and make sure its not frozen..
  • - 4
 look at any isand cup dh race count specialized bike compared to banchees
  • + 3
 I dont know what you have been counting but in the ISLAND CUP there are about 3 banshees and about 50 specialized. If there were no specialized there would be no banshee! and many others! and if you like banshee so much why dont you know how to spell it?
  • + 2
 Oh and what is a pyre? is it a dh bike? NO is it an xc bike? NO so what is it?
  • - 2
 It's banshee's trail bike but unlike specialized bikes he frame can take as much abuse as you can give it
  • + 3
 Give me your definition of a trail bike.
  • + 2
 Thats what i thought.

And how would you think trhat specialized cannot take any abuse? Obviosly you have never ridden a specialized or evan ridden period!
  • + 3
 Sorry i mean "thats what I was thinking" jacktilley you seem to understand Where banshees and specialized are in the bicycle order..
  • - 3
 i havea friend who broke 3 specialized frames but is yet to break a banshee
  • + 2
 Hmm ok is your "friend" riding hardrocks from 1998? Name some models, Did your friens just get his banshee? Because riding around the parkinglot dosent excactly snap frames, Well actually were talking banshees so it can. Tell your friens to take it out in the trails and try it.
  • - 4
 Actuly no they were stumpjumper frames and i can do lot more on my bike than you can do on the three or four that you have because it all the rider and not the bike
  • + 2
 Um okay what do you evan ride. Parking lot does not count
  • + 2
 Are you on the island? If so i will see you at victoria xc and cumberland dh not to far away
  • - 1
 but but i beat u in all the xcs u went you last year and the most u beat me by in dh last year was by fifteen seconds
  • + 1
 Who are you?
  • + 1
 and i beat you all in port
  • + 1
 15 seconds is along time in a dh race.. You can do alot of stuff in that time... Take a littel brake, Umm.. Eat a littel bit. Go take a pee.. Call some body.. Look around.. My point is you can do alot in 15 seconds...
