The photo with the red and black jersey is modern. The frame, fork, and rims are painted to look like the earlier S-Works bike.

Bahaha.

Ned Overend could kick all of our asses on any of our rides, even pussyfooting on descents. The dude is no joke when it comes to cranking out miles. He's also 65.

He recently rode down at McDowell in Phoenix and was setting 2nd and 3rd place Strava segments on a 20 mile ride. The only place he didn't were the technical descents.

He's never been much for technical downhill, which is why Tomac usually won those styles of races back when they competed (and why Tomac got into DH after his XC career.)

I don't think Ned cares about using a dropper. Plus he usually doing road, XC, marathon style marketing and those guys haven't embraced the droppers yet.

Just the rider is vintage.....the bike is fairly current.

People still ride continental tires that are not sponsored by continental? Weird.

EWS rider Cody Kelley's dad is a freaking beast as well. I follow him on strava and he gets after it on some gnarly trails and climbs. Dude is in his 60's and has 268 miles (~430km) for the month of February alone so far.

My personal experience is that they work really well for about 6 rides then they warp.

The Der Baron are are good tire. Mind you I did get them free from a friend that didn't like them as they wouldn't run tubeless well for him and I just ran them with tubes.

Continental claims to be using new casings for this season. Here's hoping they've solved their issues of QC, air retention, and compliance, as they've always had good rubber. It would be nice to have another strong option.
