 That was way to quiet... Bikes these days are being made too well.... wheres the clanking and smashing noises?!?! Let me build the bike for the next edit, it will sounds old school

 they hear me rollin'

 My new v10 is the loudest bike i've ever owned hands down.
  • 12 3
 @dimetera413: You're doing it wrong then.
  • 4 1
 @TheMastodon: How? The chainslap on the carbon chainstay is just downright bad. Doesn't make me dislike the bike at all, it's just clearly loud. You can hear it in the video on rock gardens, it has a distinctive sound. Mastic tape and closed cell foam doesn't help either, the only thing that helps is wrapping the stay in bar tape but that just tears when the chain slams against it.

 @TheMastodon: Also i've heard that this noise is only pronounced on the 2016 and up models, not the one you are riding in your profile pic.

 @dimetera413: try cutting a tube and wrapping that around the chainstay with some zip ties or gorilla tape at either end
  • 8 1
 All these edits should be titled, "VitalMTB RAW"

Its funny to see how popular this style of edit has become recently.

 @dimetera413: try the fuzzy side of velcro. I use it when necessary and usually can quiet anything down.

 Man I love the Santa Cruz V10.

 @dimetera413: My 2015 V10 was so loud too! The rubber CS guard wore down after a few months and got even louder. First thing I noticed on my M16 was how quiet it was as the chainstay is slimmer.

 Smashed it like a boss!! Stoked an American rider is on the Syndicate this season. He gets to watch and learn from Mr. Minn. Luca could be a darkhorse this season for a top 5 overall finish! USA!!
  • 7 6
 i don't know about darkhorse.......... alot of peep expect luca to beat mr minnarr at more than one round...
  • 12 1
 @stacykohut: He actually finished ahead of Minnaar at two of the WC rounds last season and even made it onto the podium once...finishing 9th overall on the season.

Definitely not a darkhorse.

 It's cool to see how much pros slow down when trails get narrow and tense. Too bad uci tracks are no longer realistic like this one.
  • 2 0
 And the fact that Windrock is stupid steep. Rained 3 days before the GRT last weekend and it forced the pros to have to switch trails.

 The jump to manual at the end was not fair.

 You don't have a mechanic look at your bike after every run. Or do you?

 Sick riding on a sick course! Not the usual high production value, great visuals, and great audio we usually see out of Red Bull.

 Seeing him actually ride in person is nuts. So fluid.
  • 2 0
 Having ridden those trails, followed him down them, and seeing him rip it up is unreal. Bummed they skipped over the triple by the road.
  • 4 0
 @SRAMIX29: that is an impressive triple. Saw Neko send it in the pouring rain.

 @DHaddict82: Have you seen Dak Norton 1 handed oppo whip it? Mind boggling

 Sweet video, I grew up there it makes me miss home. I guess I am the minority, I never cared for CK hubs myself... I9 all the way!

 The crisp i9 sound the hubs make on a carbon rim is music to my ears, i frickin love mine

 Must be nice to see people of his caliber ripping up trails you built.
  • 3 0
 @SRAMIX29: YES, motivates me to build more! Cutting in some fresh track for the final race of the Downhill Southeast series and flagging a new double black old school gnar track I will start digging on soon! Windrock is growing, lots of new trail being built. Patrick Tait is working hard machine building a sweet new blue trail and Sean Leader and Neko Mullaly are always working on new stuff and improving the old! Windrock Bike Park is gonna be a must visit downhill destination on the east coast!!!

 @GunnyBailey: I haven't met Patrick yet, but yeah, I've been up there 4 times now and every time it gets better. I think I've ridden some laps with you, I'm the kid with the green YT.

 That bee sound of the Chris Kings in the backround, just amzing. His bike and those parts especially the Wheels are just things that the average Biker dreams of.

 Chris King's and Industry Nine, never be a ninja on those hubs.
