Eddie will unfortunately have to sit this race out due to an injury sustained at the Northstar EWS, so this bike will need to wait a little longer to be ridden.

 Laurie better watch out; I heard Trump wants to buy him.

 Well, he does like to make things go down hill fast.

 Can't blame him. He's a lock for anyone's fantasy team.
  • 4 5
 @MTBrent: unlike trump then. He's made America great again...

 Finn: Make my bike Canada as f*ck!!!
Ohlins: We'll give you this pile of money to ruin it with some yellow lowers
Finn: sure, whatever

 I do hate this, same with Alex Marin's Myst. that would be the best bike for me if forks kept with the theme.
  • 14 4
 @lognar There are no piles of money in this sport.
  • 5 1
 I think Ohlins answer was just: "yeah right, take the yellow fork and shut de f... up, boy".
  • 2 0
 @bohns1: what would gwinn have to say about that?
  • 6 7
 @lognar: He'd say, "Sorry, can you repeat the question? Couldn't hear you over the sound of my McLaren echoing off the walls of my new mansion."

(disclaimer: AG's the man. I hope he makes many more million$ using his talent)
  • 1 1
 @lognar: that he is not getting paid enough!
  • 1 1
 @MTBrent: he's not making nhl money dude
  • 1 1
 @bohns1: No mtb’r is going to make money like any of the mainstream sports, but Gwin’s been on video saying he’ll be at “about a million” for a single year with all his sponsors and endorsements. That’s awesome and I hope he’s able to continue to do it, along with the the other top talent.
  • 1 1
 @MTBrent: and that adds to my point.. One guy in the entire discipline at around a million.. That's great for Gwin. But I wouldn't be holding all my eggs in one basket if I was an aspiring pro Dh rider.. Stay in school kids!

 Eddie Masters bike better not have a picture of a Pavlova on it...... because we ALLLLLL know that the Aussies came up with the Pav !
  • 6 2
 @Waldon83: Get Rekt

 It's hard to tell with the paint, but is this a carbon Phoenix 29? I don't see any welds, and it sure has the smooth look of their carbon frames.

 @Waldon83: shuddup

 Hit a soft spot on the Kiwi's ! Relax, it's a pavlova. Who really cares who came up with it, it's delicious wherever it's made.

 Insanely ugly! The frame paint vs. yellow lowers vs. yellow shock spring are hideous... What were they thinking?

 @will-burr: money is the word you're looking for

 Agreed. Despite the cable tie on the chainstay...

 Cant' say I care much for that "crackle" finish that Specialized is doing.

 All suspension criticism aside, his frame paint job is by far the best I've seen!
  • 10 1
 Ooh new prop system - NEW PROP SYSTEM!! Love Finn's Demo but still think Fearon takes the crown so far.

We need to see how many down and up votes Waki (and Protour) can conjure up simultaneously
  • 1 0
 Waki wins, in my book... by far! Wink

 I'd love to see Tummer and Johannes Von Klebelsberg do a piss take rattle can job on their bikes, everything painted the same colour with overspray on the tyres and rear mech.
  • 3 0
 I guess Denim paint for Johannes' bike... Smile

 @Sloppa90: That would be epic

 Fork lowers and shock spring should have been done in red as well on Finn's bike... still looks amazing!!

 Eddie might have just won

 I guess pixelated rear end is en vogue now; I prefer full frontal though.
  • 3 1
 Really digging all these "dye in water"/ marble/paint splatter paint jobs like the specialized. Hope one of these companies puts out a consumer model in that styling

 The new specialized enduro does have such a paint job

Looking at Danny's bike, what is that polished part running over the non drive side chainstay?

Thanks

 Floating brake? Smile

 @Benzz: yes. But why don't the other saracen team members have it? Is it something Danny and his mechanic have come up with themselves..?

 What is that extra part/linkage above the chain stay on non drive side of the bike on Danny Hart's and Matt Walker's bikes?
  • 1 0
 Oh super interesting! It appears to be linked to the caliper or something. It must be some sort of device that controls breaking force and its effect on suspension, or something...
  • 1 0
 Why only Danny Hart is using the floating brake and the other saracen guys are only using the stock setup???

 What are the triple clamps on Brook's bike, they do not look like stock Fox parts...

 The only thing that Hart's bike missing is the matching rear fender!

I waited to see custom fabricated bikes, and what we see??
Repainted mass produced made in china frames.
Maybe for some one custom mean something else, for me its bike on frame what was fabricated by order.
