Pinkbike Awards: Downhill Bike of the Year Nominees
So why do you care for someone you believe to be a liar? This is my last write up here because I think that you are a salvageable idiot but well how many times can you try. I am really not trying to win an argument with you, I am just trying to help you. Do yourself a big favor, get some Cad software and design a frame that you think would be awesome. The best geo, best suspension, with best kinematics and ratio. Millimeter grid paper, pencil, protractor, drawing compass, setsquare and a ruler instead of a computer and cad software will be also good enough if not better actually. You will learn a lot and you will be calmer.

Eee, I am not playing your speculative games. He said it in 2 interviews I saw that it wasn't the bike. He underlined it strongly in Behind The bike for DirtTV

I like your 3rd sentence, but the last statement is true not only for right compression tune or head angle, but also for a broken chain or a flat tyre. Not every bike fit everyone needs, yes. But if you ride for a Mondraker you may not have access to facilities that people riding for GT have. Your paycheck won't be as good, life settling race-focus providing as one form Specialized. Blaming a machine alone, prepared and tuned by professionals, for making someone not win world cups is plain delusion. Some people are so deluded they cannot see how deluded they are. Never ever zoom in too much and for too long, as your lens may seize.

None of this is of bigger relevance. Any of top World Cup riders could win on V10, Demo, Session, Summum or Orange 224, Fox or Rockshox, Sram or Shimano - IF he gets enough time to get used to it and engineers get enough to time to tune his bike. That is true for all disciplines of MTB. Fine details are for two groups of people who are world's apart - suspension engineers working with suspension every day and geeks reading about shit and wrenching from time to time. By average, members of both groups would never ever qualify to a World Cup race, probably would never collect enough UCI points from national races to get a starting number plate at all, due to insufficient skill or lack of time to take part in those national races. Then no World Cup rider would chose a contract from a company like Zerode, over a contract and support like training facilities from a fat company like Specialized or Trek. There is more to being at the top than a perfect steed. Technology in biking is as overrated as meds for common cold. Regular Pinkbike users are too often prescribed tech-drugs and too seldom: exercise and practice. Self-diagnosis is the real disease of mountain bikers. Overexcitement on what idols and heroes use and why do they fly or fall, conspiracy theories and insinuations are on level with stories in magazines with Kim Kardashians boobs on the front page.

Or do you just want to impress us fellow commenters how clever you are? So that we would mention your arguments in the future? Would that suffice to satisfy your complex?

Protour - do you realize that your action is counterproductive and you are making a lot of buzz within arguably influential circle of Pinkbike commenters, creating a lot of sympathy towards Specialized, potentially increasing their sales? What would make you happy here? What is your goal? That someone (Please consider who, from which department) from Specialized came up here and said: thank you for your concern, you are right, we didn't realize this and that and we will be honored to have you as a member of a design team, redesigning Demo, so it is a bike worthy of talents of T.Brosnan and A.Gwin?

I am permanently messed up, so the state of delirium sustains itself even through months of sobriety. Now, I am being sarcastic about people (like Protour) having issues with Specialized and the bullcrap they propel. My kids have two Specialized bikes.

Was it certified? (dosage of sarcasm towards people prejudiced against Bell Super 2R helmet may be involved)

Oh no, the evil, World Cup careers ruining, Cafe closing, Specialized is reaching hands for our kids now, exploiting charity campaign! That bike has too short chain stays and it's wheels are too big, hence it is dangerous for this child. Pinkbike! Stop this Madness!
