SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
I have 0.5 stretch on my XX1 after 50 hours use (21 XC rides). I'd be surprised if the chain had not been changed several times in 8 months, otherwise you'd imagine the cassette won't be too happy...

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Got to agree with you mikekay. XX1 is okay but far from perfect. The cable tension is very fickle, needing constant adjustment and the performance in the mud is nothing on my XTR 10 speed

Interview: Justin Leov
The Atherton's are the only ones I recall pictured actually running them on their DH bike (SRM). There might be more users out there in DH since products like Stages came on to the market which are much more discrete...

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Review: It looks the same as XX1, it functions the same as XX1, XX1 is 30-40g lighter, XO1 is about £40 cheaper for the customer but makes SRAM more pennies because it is cheaper to manufacture. Summary, come on cheapskate, why didn't you pony up the extra for XX1 ;) PS: XX1 isn't as perfect as we first claimed (chain drops, occasional grinding feeling, poor chainline) but we'll hide the points to be improved upon in an XO1 review. ;)

Video: Inside Specialized Racing: Ep. 1 with Aaron Gwin
The more I hear Gwin talk and describe how he approaches things the more I am warming to him. As Waki said in another post, it is hard to like someone who wins all the time and generally people root for the underdog, but nevertheless I think the quiet, (non-stop winning) Gwin was a touch hard to get behind. It's great to hear him talking through his thoughts on the place, the runs, etc and not something we saw too much of in the past

I was thinking the same :) Poor guy has 10 years more in his appearance

His way of talking is a bit annoying for a reserved Brit and there's a few too many cliches in what he says but you can see that both Troy and Gwin were confident and focused going in to their runs and that must be in no small part to EC's constant motivation and help he seemed to be providing. Definitely seems like an inspired decision to get EC on board.

RSD Bikes Triumph Hardtail - Review
Always interesting to see new things but the review seems somewhat brief. Not very much description about the frame or bike itself besides basically saying "it is a hardtail and we've forgotten hardtails are fun" :/ What has the world come to when 720mm bars need to be swapped out for something wider too? ;)

Results: Pietermaritzburg World Cup Round 1 Finals - Women
Wow! Awesome result for Manon! A fraction of a second away from a top 10 in the junior mens race when comparing times is bloomi' impressive. Regardless if Rachel was fit or not, there were still a lot of other girls she had to beat! Hope Rach recovers soon
