First Look: Only What's Necessary Shoes, Spank Pedals and Wheels - Eurobike 2015
Like the idea behind the shoes but the price is ridiculous! Also great to finally see some wide and light rims from Spank!

First Look: e*thirteen, BH and Manitou - Eurobike 2015
The spacing for 8, 9, 10, 11 speed cassette is the shame yes. However, if e13 replace the top 3 gears for a spacer and 2 gears to go from 11 to 10 speeds whilst keeping the same 8 speed bottom block that implies that you need a 11 speed shifter, 11 speed chain and 11 speed deraileur (with the high screw tighten to limit the deraileur to 10 cogs). My question then is: why do this? So you can get to the top cog one shift faster?

From what I understood the 10 speed cassette is just an 11 speed system minus one cog i.e. still needs an 11 speed chain, deraileur, shifter and of course the XD driver to work! So it isn't a large range cassette which you can just pop on to replace your old 10 speed cassette...

New Bikes and Prototypes - Eurobike 2015
Longer & slacker is the trend and Nicolai or should I say Chris Porter have taken it to the next level (beyond Mondraker)! I'd definitely would love to try it out!

Results and Overall Standings: World Cup DH Val di Sole - Finals
Anne Caroline Chausson: 12 times World Champion (Vouilloz was 10), 5 times World Cup Champion (only equaled by Jonnier and Vouilloz), she also won dual slalom , 4 cross and lets not forget the 2008 BMX Olympics! And she had bigger winning margins than Vouilloz. So yeah THE BEST DH rider EVER. I remember seeing her fall off the race course, climb back on and STILL won the race by miles! It's because of racers like her that the Worldcup tracks were shorten to the 3-4minute tracks we have now so it would be less embarassing...

I agree that they are a real pain in the ass but it happens so rarely nowadays (I run a narrow wide with a bash guard on my DH bike) that personally I fail to see the point. I like the cleaner look, lighter weight and less noise as well that comes with running no guide.

I can live with dropping a chain once a year. No need for this unless you race in my opinion.
