 Welcome to Rampage: the Session is a trail bike, Sorge's Insurgent is a DH bike, everything is made up, and the points don't matter

 Funny enough, “Whose Line Is It Anyway” also works in the context of Rampage.

 lets get started today with "sending it off a 80ft cliff"!

 Surprising amount of tubeless in there this year. Also Szymon has more pressure in his tires than I run on my "
gravel" bike. At what point are the rims/tires at higher risk from too much pressure rather than a snake bite?

 45 psi

 Tires are rated to 50

 44 PSI is a lot on a mountain bike, but it's really not that high in the grand scheme of things

 @RockyMountainBicycles why do you stop the maiden if most of your riders still usin it?
  • 3 0
 They probably didn't have the sales to justify continued production. The 27.5 DH crowd is a small segment of a small segment in mountain biking, which is a small segment in the bike industry.

 Can someone clear it up for me please.
What is the correct pronunciation of Brage?
I thought it was Bra-ge where the e is a schwa. Now I'm hearing people calling him Bra-gay and he isn't correcting them.
  • 16 0
 As i norwegian i can confirm it is Bra-ge, with the a pronounced similar like schwa and the e similar as the e in hello.

 He told me how to say his name haha so I think it checks out

 @christinachappetta: I did wonder, because you did a great job with Godziek

 Brandon on an XL? Is that the R3 with a 490mm reach?
  • 4 1
 It's the previous gen carbon front triangle so somewhere around 470-475 reach.
  • 3 2
 He’s on the older design low pivot 27.5 frame, XL geo chart says 463mm reach.
The high pivot XL has 493mm reach.

 His slope bikes usually have a much steeper head angle, similar to what we see in BMX. He sure is an amazing rider to be able to tailwip this kind of XL long slack bike...

 OMG just seen that the idler is missing! @trek please let us know whats the engineering explanation therefore.

 Dang, that Semenuk bike is the best SRAM promotion you could think of. Wireless AXS drivetrain and ZEB single crown fork now with Rampage approved badge.

 Thankfully no Flight Attendant silliness though.

 Brandon is going to make Hiss-tory with that Snake bike

 Not that this is a photo bracket contest or something, but my vote is still on Mr. Strait's Commencal. I spent all of 60 seconds looking for a cool acronym for a non-photo bracket contest and came up dry. Doesn't matter, the Commencal won.

 Anyone else notice the new Hope Tech 4 levers? They seem much larger then the 3’s. @ 14:44
  • 1 0
 Does anybody know how this ‘crank stopper’ on Semenuk’s bike works? Like can you pedal the bike at all? I get that you maybe don’t need to pedal in this venue, I’m just curious.

 So Brandon is running the shortest fork (mm?) with the softest and linear setting?
  • 1 0
 it's still 190mm .. not too much of a difference compared to the 200mm dual crown forks
  • 2 0
 @stefkrger: Reed's forks are also only 190mm, but dual crown
  • 2 0
 Vinny T running the yet announced Hope Tech 4. See these popping up now on lots of riders bikes, release must be imminent.

 Title carbon wheels??? Did yous guys just (purposely) blow the lid off something? Or have I been asleep at the wheel.

 It's probably the profile of the Rheeder slopestyle rim We Are One makes but in the larger size.

 So Viny-T bike runs with an old generation fox, without Kashima coating ...
Can we all stop this mess, and realize we don't need all these fancy parts, no electronical shock, but just skills and balls ?
  • 10 0
 Pretty sure Marzocchi Bomber 58s don't come in Kashima
  • 1 0
 Anyone else notice Brandon swapped to the older Code levers for his run?
  • 2 5
 Always wondered why most have run coil in the back. Air just makes so much more sense
  • 10 0
 Professional riders and teams may account for things nonprofessionals don't.
  • 3 0
 If you can get a coil stiff enough then it’s one less thing (seal) to think about
  • 3 0
 I think (as others have mentioned) that Rampage has unique requirements - I doubt these guys care much about small-bump absorption and pedaling traction.
