 That Canyon bike looks so sick! Wish they were available in the states!

 I saw one here in South Africa just last week, what an awesome machine, surprising you can't get them over there

 100% serious. My money ir ready and i'm only waiting for them to ship to the US continent. Someone at Canyon told me that's their next target in the next months.

 Agree completely. Canyon will be really dangerous to shop-only brands given how wide a range they make. I love YT but they only make 3 bikes. Commencal also only focuses on mountain and they only sell alloy bikes. Fezzari's aren't a globally recognized company due to the lack of race support so people are less likely to jump on that (so it seems). Plus that name is lame.

Adding carbon road, XC and mid-travel trail bikes to the direct only market would be really sweet.

 I really enjoy the 30 Second Bike Checks. It's cool to hear from the riders how they like their bikes to be set up. Keep doing them!

 Coil shocks ?!?!?!?
  • 7 2
 Pretty common in enduro mate!
  • 10 5
 Air shocks are nearly obsolete...
  • 7 1
 I'm just surprised the sponsors are okay with it since they all claim how their air shocks work just as good as coil. I just ordered a Van RC because I blew a piston seal on my DBair.

 Its funny that enduro switches over to coil but dh to air
  • 7 1
 DH courses are way shorter so i would go airshock as well .i,m betting the airshocks get pretty hot cycling that much over a 14min run , a coil shock with inert gas will not change performance wise as much as a airshock as nitrogen does not expand like air does when it warms up
  • 7 2
 Why not pressurize an air shock with nitrogen then? No heat expansion from the gas and its lighter too, right?

 So many great bikes I wish I had

 Does it look to anyone else that Fabien has an oval chainring??
  • 5 0
 It is, Fabien uses oval chainrings.
  • 4 1
 He runs a custom setup. Something about breaking his leg years ago so he one leg is slightly shorter than the other. I am old so my memory may be failing me.
  • 1 0
 How does he make up for that? Run one crank arm which is shorter than the opposing? Guess that's one way to stop bike thieves too.....
  • 1 0
 @ehpaxia, road guys/bike fit specialist hav used shims cleats/shoes for diff leg lengths
  • 1 0
 Merci! Although crank arm difference is slight overkill, I'd prefer it to have my foot slightly higher on my pedal I think, but each to their own!

 what kind of shock was on remy absolons bike? suntour doesnt make a shock with a piggyback
  • 1 0
 think it was a fox float X with the new negative air chamber
  • 2 0
 I saw a Suntour Proto shock with piggy back on the Caminade FB-page, might be that one!

hope this works:

 if the Durolux ive got on my bike is anything to do by, I think i owe it to them to give whatever high end shock they have in the pipeline a proper chance/try
  • 4 1
 Tippie could do his own bike check and I bet he'd fit it in 10 seconds

 Who is the guy in this video and what did he do to Tippie? I mean, he is barely talking at all.

When I read the headline I was expecting Tippie to do a 30 second bike check, with the rider just standing by, and I was prepared to spend 5 minutes afterwards just to process the information Tippie supplied in those 30 seconds...
