This trail unfortunately no longer exists. Perhaps I will rebuild it even larger eventually, but as of right now, it is merely a fond memory.

Fabio Wibmer. Not only is he fast, but he's got street skills that come very close to MacAskill himself. Biking machine.

Foes Mixer: Breaking the Rules ...Again - Interbike 2015
Every aggressive 29er I've ridden has been an absolute monster on the downs. Maybe not so great in super tight twisty stuff, but for all out speed and stability over rough terrain, its hard to argue with the way they ride. I think until the last year or so, the biggest drawback to a 29 inch wheel was the lack of quality tire choices. Tires have caught up with the potential of larger wheels now. With wheelset tech in terms of weight and durability taking huge leaps forward, its only natural that you see more and more aggressive riders choosing a larger wheel. I'm fully convinced that upsized wheels across any category except DJ/Slope can provide great benefits, with far fewer drawbacks than we saw a few years back. That said, if you don't like riding a larger wheel, don't. Ride the bike that's fun to ride. Also, a few corrections, most enduro races I've been around have been timed almost exclusively on the downhill portions of the course, and in fields of 200+ in the races I've patrolled, maybe fifteen or twenty guys and gals run 29ers, everybody else in on 650b or 26. Cheers

X-Fusion Revel X Inverted Fork - Interbike 2015
@AHCrowther, go out to your bike, squeeze the front wheel in between your legs, grab the bars, and twist them firmly side to side while watching your forks lowers. You will notice that the torsion you place on that fork causes the lowers to twist very slightly independent of each other and the stanchions, one twisting forward, the other back. Keep in mind that this is happening while the fork has an arch connecting the lowers. This very slight twisting is the force X-fusion is trying to eliminate, and since they don't have an arch to connect the lowers to each other, they needed to be creative in their approach.

X-Fusion Revel X Inverted Fork - Interbike 2015
I've got the Trace HLR Roughcut on my Following, and just about freaked out when I saw this. I was joking with my roommate that if I could get a Revel when I was building the bike last month, I'd be the only person to ever with that bike. Clearly there are other people with ideas as cool as mine though. Hopefully they go on sale.
