An assegai in the rear?? Interesting

I've seen a few professional racers doing this, must be a method to the madness

Referring to the Pivot posted above: the DHF is 2.6", so I'm assuming the owner was following the wisdom of putting the larger tire in front. A solid plan, but the 2.6" DHF has shorter lugs than the Assegai, so the traction balance goes against conventional wisdom.

Assegai in the rear would be sweet if you could get in a 2.3! The 2.5 in the rear is way too vague feeling

I'm not going to say it's the sexiest bike in the world, but it looks like a ton of work has gone into it...

No to mention probably feels like dragging a boat anchor

I run assegai f+r on my DH bike and love the setup. Maybe it’s a little different on a trail bike.

I've never been a huge fan of matching shock/fork decals. If it had murdered out graphics on the shock and fork, it'd be a 10/10

I'm just glad whoever put this together out indexed the wheels and tires correctly.

why?, I've never heard anything but good reviews about them. given the cost of WAO they don't make much sense to me but if someone wants to spend the extra $$ have at it.

Anyone know how the new Ohlins forks ride? My gf has the original rxf on her spesh enduro and I think it feels horrible.
