I was hoping to see more bikes and fewer trees myself

Bike Check: Tanja Ċ½akelj's Trek Superfly SL - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
I haven't read any reviews of it but I love the look of it. I would have one if they gave it to me even if it was shit!

EWS Bike Check: Matti Lehikoinen's Nukeproof Mega AM
I was advised to get an MM tune for the Corsair Konig, which I was using as a Mini DH/fuck about bike paired with a Totem Dual Position air fork. My monarch was the Plus, high volume and I got it when they first came out. I should have gone for the standard volume because it was too linear. Soft enough to not feel like wood over small chatter had it bottoming out all the time. Hard enough not to bottom made it stop working on chatter. I sent it back twice in the first month and again within six months. On 2 minute DH runs it would lose all damping and somehow bottom off anything. It also leaked oil out of the air can, and developed a click at the beginning of the stroke. I sold it used and bought a DSP dueler coil with the money. That shock is underrated. I've had it on three bikes now and never serviced it. Adjustments are all still spot on, it's super sensitive too.

I kind of agree, but it's more a case of they know who is paying them and what they get given to use more than what works best. The biggest case in point for me is the Monarch Plus shock. Now it could be that I had a bad one, but honestly that shock was the single worst performing, unreliable and overpriced bike component I have ever used. Now when I see how many pros are using them I know they're getting paid to do so. They must all be jealous of CG and his DVO coil.

Bike Check: Julien Absalon's BMC Double Threat - Nove Mesto World Cup XC
I don't see any reason not to use it other than cost. I find the 2x11 with a single shifter option fascinating. If not for the cost, it should murder 1x11

Pretty much anyone would for the free bikes and free holidays. It must surely beat getting a real job.

I am surprised more companies don't do colour matched frames and forks more often because they look a lot better than bright frames with black or silver forks.

I think it's awesome. Just teach them to stop crapping in the street!

You're right about that Waki. When it looks this shit, who cares what it's like to ride or what SRAM parts are on it?
