Tegan Molloy Gets Her Groove on at Bromont - Video
@hardyk: I still like the old WC track but they sure could polish some sections. They cleaned it last year and it was fun. I find most other tracks are probably not challenging/fast enough to be WC worthy. I'd say they lack the "oh shit" sections that other mountains have and it doesn't seem like bromont is headed that way with their trailbuilding either (a decision I can understand). Anyway, the biggest problem for bromont is that they're pretty much right next to MSA and MSA has better WC tracks.

2016 Western Open: Downhill Ain't Dead
Trail/enduro bikes have been increasingly popular and I can see why some people would prefere them but I don't think it is killing downhill. I feel it has more to do with the trails than with the bikes themselves. If you ride a world cup DH track on a trail bike you're still riding DH as far as I'm concerned so as long as there will be people riding fast down gnarly trails, DH will be alive, even if it is done on single crowns.

2016 Western Open: Downhill Ain't Dead
Why do people keep suggesting that downhill is dead? Might not be the most thriving discipline but it is far from dead.

Kona Launches New 2017 Models
@DARKSTAR63: I broke an exo, which is supposed to be their toughest tires short of DD. I checked with other local riders on the forums and they also had poor luck with the single ply maxxis exo. What would be ridiculous would be keeping on buying them if they're not up for the terrain. Seeing that I broke 4 similar tires from 4 different brands within a very short time span, I think it is safe to say that I need something heavier than the regular 600-700g trail tires. I was ready to give a shot to the maxxis DD tires but they aren't available in 26" so yeah, no more maxxis for me, their current selection just doesn't for what I need. As for schwalbe, I would have liked to try a super gravity version but their 2.35" are more like 2.5" knob to knob and the fit is way too tight on my rear triangle, it rubs on my seatstays when I corner hard as soon as my wheel isn't perfectly true. The 2.35 trailstar magic mary I have up front does fine, as the fork has more clearance. My michelin wild rockr 2 advanced 26x2.35 does a great job on the back for now so problem solved.

@patrick2cents: Thanks for the heads up, that must be new, when I ordered one last fall I don't think these were available, only the 25mm flow ex.

@cstishenko: There are some, but Enve, are you serious? I'm not putting 3k$ on a wheelset, at that point I'm gonna add an extra 2k$ and get a full 650b bike instead. I'm not saying they don't exist but most wheel press release these days have no 26" options. You can still ride the stuff that used to be made but you aren't getting most of the latest tech (kinda like the turbines who came out last week). So far my stans are holding up but they're 25mm ID iirc.
