@pbuser2299: the rear never was 24h , was it? And 28 is pretty much standard nowadays.

Field Test: 2020 Canyon Lux - A Very Fast Baseline
@clink83: noone can “pick any bike for free”, not even mvdp.. if someone gets scott bikes for free it does not mean they can get any other brand bike for free.. in fact in many cases it means they can either only get scott or scott provides some extra benefits that other brands dont provide.. because scott as a company is willing to give free bikes to people at a grassroots level, where no other manufacturer is willing to support.. they are great bikes anyway, it is just they arent significantly better than canyon , spesh, cannondale, bmc, etc

Field Test: 2020 Canyon Lux - A Very Fast Baseline
@clink83: i explained why they pick scott in my point number 2. This because scott does best sponsorship. Because this is scotts way of marketing, to give killer deals to even small local team, so everyone even at local level would be riding scott. I know thats the case at least in my area. Giant is not willing to sponsor a club of 20 people, where only 1 person races professionally, and 19 other work 9-5 jobs and race in C league. Scott is happy to support, and give huge discounts to such teams , so people naturally pick scott as the cheapest option

@clink83: they are dialed for exact same reason, which is - because the brand decides to invest in RACING, not into frame r&d.. meaning top mechanics, top nutritionists, top physiologists, more custom stuff than competition, more stuff to break and try while training and finding the best setup.. r&d going into the bike frame, that is motivated by winning races, is a very very small part.. there is more work to design bikes to look similar (spark, genius, ransom, gambler) than to build an absolute best suspension platform.. why you see alot of scotts on all your xc races is because 1) some people see nino and want similar bike 2) scott gives good support to even smaller local teams that dont produce any results.. if you have enough members in a club, who race consistently and promise to buy many bikes, you get great discounts.. but thats again a form of investment into race teams, not into bike r&d

First Look: DT Swiss' New 1501 & 1700 Spline Wheelsets
I also am confused why they decided to go with centerlock only.. doesnt that limit they access to oem builds which are mostly SRAM? Is it something they promissed in return for microspline licence? Hmmm...

Rapha Announces New Line of Cycling Eyewear
I guess they decided not to use their proprietary Clouds And Sunshine Handling (CASH) technology, and went with ROSE instead

Review: 2021 Guerrilla Gravity Gnarvana
They avoided that comparison because this bike is not a competitor for the enduro
