Has he put up the horns here he would've scored bigger points and more crowd stoke. http://www.velominati.com/etiquette/universal-message-metal-horns-awesome/ Cool little stunt that has a future, who is gonna do it at Rampage?

That's cool I figured you might enjoy it. I think we respect each others creativity considering 99% of the people on here are boring clones stuck inside their mediocre boring warm comfortable existence. But Demo gate doesn't end here just because Gwin completed the most amazing run in DH history that I still don't quite believe. Meditate for 10 minutes, cleanse your body, mind, and palate. Repeat immediately. Now refresh your existence like a newborn unaborted freshly exposed baby with blood on the chin. No past grudges toward Protour, forget all controversial memories and consider the following: Gwin won because he has Godly skils, not because he believes in God. We all know this. He is dialed in with the new Demo and can handle the radically changing wheelbase with his superior skills, especially when the chain falls off and he doesn't have to touch the brakes, avoiding the instability of the design and maximizing its momentum gaining pumping benefits and low centre of gravity. But what about Joey the beginner who rides the Demo assuming a predictable ride, applies both brakes at the same time I'm sketchy terrain, knives the front tire, losses traction, and breaks his neck? My legal position on this matter is that if a bike has the most radically changing wheelbase in the history of bicycles customers who purchase the bike should be warned. Please consider that no vehicle in the history of all human created vehicles has as unstable of a wheelbase as the new Demo. Doesn't mean Gwin won't continue to dominate but he is not the rider of this bicycle that I am concerned about. I am concerned about Joey. #Iamconcerned

Poll: iPhones, Blackberries, Androids, Oh My
Notice the irony of the emergence of smart phones to further disconnect us from the moment and nature just as we are decisively destroying our planet that sustains our existence. Not much discussion here about the materials used in them and their destructive consequences. http://www.theguardian.com/sustainable-business/rare-earth-mining-china-social-environmental-costs

Now THAT Was A Bike - Yeti C-26
Wouldn't work well for Gwin' s bike, he prefers the detachable type to maximize his bike's suspension performance.

Correct on all 3 componentry observations, that purple cable pulley probably made later by Yeti.

@snl1200: "Very much not cool protour. Perhaps you missed the memo but using images of people with disabilities to joke and demean others is lowest denominator." You are right. I truly apologize to all those beautiful people for comparing them to Waki. @zede. Waki is not at all like me. One of his problems is that he obviously talks too much, I don't. He is a relatively slow rider who has admitted he is too much of a pussy to own a DH bike. Not me. But I'll acknowledge he has a strange obsession with me considering I mostly ignore him. Look at how he responded to my first post and then once ignored he turns and immediately resorts to personal insults. Am amateur psychologist rreading these threads could tell you more about Waki than he knows about himself. He has admitted he has a psychological disorder but that's not the worst part, and this is the biggest difference between us and also one of the biggest tragedies to occur in Europe in the last decade or so. ..... Waki is a breeder. I have lobbied hard to keep psychologically ill people from breeding but it's a tough fight because it turns out that there isn't much you can do. Forced vasectomies? Europe is way to liberal for that. Take away the children and put them in re-education camps? The bad seed is in the DNA, can't get it out its hardwired. The best thing to do is lock the children away from the public and put them in a room by themselves to make science fiction mtb drawings like daddy.

Nah, Gwin will win again. The only way the bike will stop him is if it catapults him in steep rocky terrain like it did to Brosnan last year. http://youtu.be/bki2M-S8hwY Waki, you look much more presentable with your tongue in: http://www.shutterstock.com/similar-244099330/stock-photo-close-up-portrait-of-handicapped-boy-laying-with-hands-under-head-on-green-grass.html

I actually don't think that axle paths are that important. ... as long as it doesn't create any negative handling characteristics. The new Demo does definitely create traction and stability issues. They can even be somewhat demonstrated in the sales floor at your local Specialized dealer. Stand over the Demo with both brakes on and then put your weight down into the bike with the brakes on and watch the front tire skid forward. All bikes do this but the Demo does it the most and this is a stimulation of what can actually happen on the trail when you apply both brakes on this bike. Gwin is right, the Demo probably does ride alot better without a chain given the quirky handling characteristics of this bike. Riding with no chain means you are touching the brakes less and perhaps the extreme upward and inward axle path creates more forward momentum when you are pumping your way down the track. There, I came up with a positive handling benefit of the concentric main pivot design of the Demo for all the Demo lovers out there. Gwin needs to have an auto release on his chain after the first pedal section of every track. #nochainbiblebrain

I think he needs to win at least a couple World Championship to get that consideration considering Nico had 10.
