Prototype Marzocchi Dropper Post - Eurobike 2014
At stop components definitely like the idea nose lift when the saddle is dropped DH mode great idea , been bugging me that too for sometime. Prefer infinite adj simple stupid reliable setup, all those other things sound like a mechanical nightmare to keep working. Other area that needs focus is the lever that drops the post, apart from KS and Reverb others are large and clunky. I like mine on left side under the bar its natural out of the way of the brake lever for different brands and protected, I wish companies would think of these issues! Zochi go full hydraulic as well, don't use multi position and mech plus air thats 5 years ago, if you're behind on launch you're dead this is a very competitive area making something the same as 99% of market would differentiate enough, people imo will stick with what they know if no standout comparisons, be great to have a true competitor to the Reverb, benchmark imo! KS is also working hard on improvements!

Is that the worst looking XTR crank yet, each year they seem to get uglier, late 2000s 8,9,10 looked great, Raceface SC or next pse at that price level

First Look: 4 New Bikes From Transition - Eurobike 2014
Yeah my thoughts it likes a Cove Norco and Pivot front end marriage, not sure yet on opinion need time to assimilate it, seems since the FSR patent died everyone is jumping on that dead horse, I think the Cocknballs Covert was an awesome bike, still,very quick everywhere great numbers, not fsr make a good bike. Time will tell, hard for consumers to have choice if everything is Vanilla though.

It works and fricken amazing, typical e theory at work here again,I have both stems for my XR and the 10mm rocks I set PRs on fire roads for FSake, going down dam, but you stick with your XC 50mm probably more like a 100, we all know PB riders are really all roadies!

Have both stems prefer the 10mm 30mm might look better but 10rips like you wouldn't believe, you must unlearn what you think you have learned padawans, game changer and so much fun. Zero loss suspension superior to dwl too, best system Ive ridden to date

Sex on toast, I run a 2014 Dune XR, that guard works a treat, still,get a bit of mud but very effective, awesome bike, but dang am loving that orange, it amazes people when I blitz up fire roads on a 10mm stem with 20mm stack and ride past em, looks from peeps are hilarious, it shouldn't work but it does and I love it, going down and cornering is fricken amazing.

Leatt DBX Carbon Helmet - Eurobike 2014
How much is your head worth, I have been through a head injury it still affects me everyday, 6 years on, best of the best have been blackhawk down, it can hurt anyone anytime no matter your ninja skills you think you have, actually thats when you are most at risk! Maybe not a silver bullet, nothing is, but as bikes improve skills improve protection and systems need to keep pace ideally be ahead of that pace. People buy a 5-10k DH bike but whine about helmet or neck brace costs give me a break, cant pay don't play simple! And if you do cheap out don't bitch sue and whine when you are laying in hospital with your life wiped out because you skimped. People should give up that case of beers or maccas then they might be able to add some serious protection.

Leatt DBX Carbon Helmet - Eurobike 2014
What about the weight? Couldn't find it? I like it, lest the peak is decent length for dog roosts and sun and fern in face protection. Id rock it, looking to update my Leatt to latest gen and this would replace my D3 nicely!
