Ask Pinkbike - Out of Control Rear Derailleur, Flat-Pedal Rider Switching to Clips, and a 24-Inch Wheel Question
Having made the switch to clips I would prbably not recommend Crank Brothers pedals, also for the poor bearing quality but not only. I have tried the mallets and found so difficult to disengage that it did not bring me in the best conditions of confindence when approaching a techy zone. Since then I'm on Shimano XT trail ones. Surely too small for DH riding but with enough real estate to feel good even when failing to reengage the clips. But surely these things are more a question of taste or "feel" so you better try it out yourself Mshopik.

Brendan Fairclough and Alba Wunderlin succeed in Lenzerheide
Picture 3: what's that weird frame under Steve Peat? It's the prototype season so who knows... A guess: 650b V10!

I didn't say enduro should look like several dh stages. Testing physical abilities sure but not if it's only this which is being tested like on day 1 with tables doubles and berms.

Oh guys I really didn't want to, but you sort of force me being provocative ;) @dthomp325: that is a very americsn attitudeā€¦ "european enduro (you could just say enduro actually) is not right so we change it and the rest of the world should do the same otherwise they are idiots". Well no, enduro is a fun based discipline, riden on techy singletracks for more than 10 years now and I found great as such. I said it'd be provocative. Enduro tracks are not much more technical than some xc tracks in fact. Yes it's a gravity discipline and has always been. It's not because there has been recent conversions from xc guys, 4x guys and of course dh guys that we have to change the discipline of enduro to make it a blend of it all. That feels very UCI type of attitude!

@Sino428: if you time uphills and downhills it's called cross country. Just as simple as that.

Sure I did. The first 30 riders are within a minute!! Still not tight enough? Check previous results!

Have you looked at the results? They've rarely been so close... It simply looks like it's purely down to rider's power. Next time just pit each guys 5 min on a home trainer, record power and there you have you're ranking... I don't mind so much some sections can be flat and pedally (like stage 1 and 4 at La Thuile, which I hated!) but it can't be just that. Let's see if the next stages bring something else than berms. The guys should have the opportunity to show their skills as well (and I am certainly not saying Richie World Champ Rude doesn't have skills).

Keep enduro out of bikeparks! It's nothing to do there (just like dh).

@Bronco82: all brands have their problems from time to time. Fox calles back thousands of forks lately and RS has had its share of failure on lyrics and totem some 4-5 years ago.

They can still change things on the links. For the rest it'll be more difficult indeed Protot-hype?
