Sea Otter 2014 Randoms - Part 2
Stoked to see more exposure for Fouriers, I ride for them and if you can take my word for it all of their production parts have worked flawlessly.

Video: Experience The Cape Epic
I'm really stoked on this, enduro with periodic downhill gets old really fast. I've spoken against xc before but now I can see why it's popular, it's incredibly fun and it's nice to see the facial expressions of the riders suffering, it makes them more human imo.

It's worked for me for a long time...

Photo Recap: Pietermaritzburg XC World Cup
Marco Fontana mentioned a low seatpost upsetting the feel of an xc bike, it's completely true. I wasn't any faster with the low post, it's not the same as an enduro or downhill bike, you can't really lean back and use the sag (if that makes sense, maybe lean back and let the bike do the work type of thing?) with an xc bike. When I first started with the xc bike I felt the seatpost, now I put a dropper on just to test and it just bugged me more then anything because I never used it and trust me I went down some steep crap. There's a different cornering style on an xc bike and having a dropper would just be a pain, it would be like running a dropper on a 'cross bike... I won't go high seatpost in dh or enduro but for xc it's necessary.

The high seatpost isn't hard to get used to... the first time down the difficult nsmba trails on seymour (north shore) was eye opening but you do get used to it. The bike is just a lot harder to save when you lose control on it, xc crashes are scarier than dh crashes imo because you're wearing zero padding and the bike catapults you so much harder than a dh bike would.

Nino Schurter's World Championship Winning, 17.8-Pound Scott Scale - Sea Otter 2014
Does he Aquaseal his Dugasts? Maybe not for fastbird but I'd imagine he'd have to for Rhinos... for those guys who don't race cross (Dugast make the best cross tires, it's a non-arguable fact) you have to seal cotton sidewall tires or they'll rot badly in wet conditions/slight moisture. I'm stoked to see Dugast moving into the mtb world, maybe FMB will follow?

Emily Batty's Trek Superfly - Pietermaritzburg World Cup
In relation to her saddle-handlebar drop it's fairly standard for the xc racing crowd. I'm not sure why they look higher there even with that stem setup, does Emily use a larger size frame?

Emily Batty's Trek Superfly - Pietermaritzburg World Cup
The front isn't very low... and for the carbon rim question I'd assume so, they're top end xc rims.
