If I could only ride the north shore for the rest of my life, I'd be happy.

iceBike* 2015 Randoms
Think of where the 20x110 axle standard would be if they spent all the R&D money there, instead of inventing a solution for a problem that didn't exist. The humble 20x110 would be just as light, if not lighter, and much stiffer than 15mm could ever hope to be, regardless of width...

First Look: 2015 Troy Lee Designs Helmet Collection
That was available last year too, I think they're only showing the new colour options.

Palmer's running FLY Racing stuff now, helmet and kit. Legendary as he is, I'm not sure TLD would resurrect/create a Palmer paint scheme when he's not running their helmets...

Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year
@willsoffe: Interesting opinion, but I think that two systems featuring a main shock, joined to an auxiliary shock via an extra link with the purpose of altering the bikes geometry and handling for either climbing or descending are pretty comparable, regardless of how the system is activated. I stand by my assertion that Canyon's system is simply a refined version ("better" if that makes you feel better) of Kona's Magic Link idea.

Interesting, looks like both Sam and Mike are running Mavic clothing and tires as well as wheels. No more Schwalbe? Royal Racing? Future Mavic DH kit and tires?

@willsoffe: You bet I'm defending the Magic Link, it was great outside the box thinking. Did it need refining? Sure it did, but the Canyon system is pretty much exactly that: simply a refinement of the Magic Link idea, not some ground breaking innovation. If Kona didn't come up with the idea of the Magic Link *seven years* ago, would we have this current "innovation" from Canyon? Who knows...

It may not use a proprietary shock, but that doesn't mean there isn't a bunch of proprietary bullshit going on in there. Order your spare parts now...

@Terryotomy: In my opinion, the only thing "backwards" about Kona's Magic Link was that the linkage was connected to the bottom of the shock. It used a non-proprietary main shock, like Canyon, and it was all controlled via chain tension, not some switch with a special "unweighting" maneuver required to make it work...
