Nice save at 3:53. Looking forward to seeing all these guys race this year, this sport will get better every year.

Vaea's line looks insanely sick. Great work bringing back the lines and creating new stuff!

@skinnylegsnocardio: The cranks on the rear axle is what makes this one stupid. Actually it's all stupid. Unrideable seat and stem. Put a little time into it and add footpegs. Flexstays on a DH bike?

@DanielP07: It's also the compromised shifting performance from those tight turns in the cable. Brand that do this show that they are completely clueless about mountain bikers priorities and that they are roadies at heart.

Lal Bikes' Did Efficiency Tests on the Supre Drivetrain - An Update
@justinfoil: Chain twisting from impact might be rare on a non e bike but it has happened to me on my e bike so I included it. Sometimes you can also get a little stick stuck in your pulleys(cause it's so close to the ground) that will jam itself in there, get stuck, and cause the chain to twist as it forces it's way through. It might not twist much but enough to cause a click every revolution. This has happened to me on my e bike. Derailleurs that practically drag on the ground do not belong on e bikes, it's so stupid it's laughable. I think the overlap would help. Even with the different pitch, you are going to have more friction and force resistance with more overlap. ✅More force resistance on the chain should also help with chain life, because the forces are more spread out over more link pivots.

Lal Bikes' Did Efficiency Tests on the Supre Drivetrain - An Update
There are more advantages to this than just the 2% increase in efficiency. ✅There is no exposed derailleur to get hit by rocks or catch a stick and damage the drivetrain. ✅The derailleur is out of the way so water from puddles won't splash on your chain so easily and contaminate your drivetrain, so your chain should last longer. ✅Your derailleur isn't near as likely to get bent out of alignment, so shifting is more reliable overall. ✅Because the chain isn't as likely to get hit by rocks or other obstacles, it's l likely to get tweaked or broken, leading to a more reliable and safer drivetrain. Less likely to break a chain in your race run. ✅The increased overlap of the chain on the rear cassette means you aren't as likely to have chain skipping problems when you put a new chain on an old cassette. ✅High pivot bikes aren't pretty, but the bike looks better without the rear derailleur hanging down almost to the ground.
