 Why is 1000 for the win a joke? There are no spectators paying gate fees, it's not like there is fat TV contracts, nothing. At the end of it, the promoter has as good a chance of loosing money as they do making enough to pay for pizza and beer for the crew. The only entities that get something from EWS and most mountain bike racing is the brands that are paying the racers to be there. So, hurry out and buy a GT so that they can justify their marketing budget, keep the circle of money flowing.

 It’s not only that he is winning but he is one hell of a nice guy, exceptional professional and mature for only being 21 years old. I have had the pleasure of meeting him on several occasions and he is genuine, real and generally stoked to be a bike racer

 Do it! Been rocking similar setups on both 29/27 and 27,5/26. Works great! :-)

People are so afraid to think out of the box and experiment. Just look at the other response you got and the number of likes from PB users too afraid to try new stuff...

 His style is all over the back wheel pushing it down for traction and letting the front do its thang.
