GZ - Rocky Mountain Team Teamcamp S├╝dfrankreich
I'm pretty sure they noticed, how could you not notice that... only thing that would make it worse, is if they had a strap around their arm with the logo on it.

2017 Bergamont Factory Team Announced
"The best downhill bike that BERGAMONT has ever built.." - what the hell kinda marketing is that, it would be pretty pointless if their previous model was better. But apart from that I really like the bike and actually ordered one... I have never bought a bike that's just been released, but I'm pretty confident I won't be disappointed.

Nukeproof Horizon Pedals
@zaskarHH: It says it's their own cleat, doesn't it?

Nukeproof Horizon Pedals
@WAKIdesigns: Really? You must have huge feet or really wide shoes, I never had that problem. It was narrow with my Mallet 3 pedals and Shimano AM shoes, but with the cleat all the way inboard it worked. With my 5.10 Impact VXi or Specialized shoes it's no problem at all! Mallet DHs have a much wider Q-factor anyway.

Nukeproof Horizon Pedals
In my mind, one of the biggest advantages of the Crankbrothers mechanism is, that you can clip in from the front and back. There have been lots of moments where I failed to clip in before a gnarly section and just put the cleat somewhere in front the spring to survive the section and managed to move it back until it clipped in. If that works with the Nukeproof pedals as well, I'm very interested, as they don't have one of the major CB flaws, which is, that the mechanism can be opened from a rock hitting the underside of a pedal. I nearly smashed my balls on my seat because of that during a race run once. Mud clearance won't be as good, but that's mostly annoying during practice as you don't normally put your foot on the ground in a race...

Nukeproof Horizon Pedals
"This cleat system is unique to Nukeproof, but does support SPD devices. " Does that mean I can use SPD cleats with the Nukeproof pedals, or Nukeproof cleats with SPD pedals, or both?

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
@Mattin: Well I could use DH tires on my Enduro bike, but that's the thing, I want reasonably light tires that withstand some abuse. I weigh 65kg and run 2bar of tire pressure. On my tight, rooty, technical hometrails I don't get too many flats, but on high-speed rocky alpine trail it happens more than I care for. My Sram X1 drivetrain hasn't had a problem all season, I rarely have to adjust the tension, that's it. And even if your chain breaks, you can just piece it together. I had to throw away 2 tires that had 2-3 runs on them because they had a huge cut, this year alone. I now switched to Specialized Butcher GRID tires, because they are way cheaper and a bit heavier, so maybe that'll help.

Pinkbike Poll: Which Major Component is the Least Evolved Part of a Mountain Bike?
How can people say transmission? The only part of my bike that regularly fails are my tires. Even with tubeless, chunky tires and wide rims I regularly pinchflat. My transmission nearly never fails, I killed a few derailleurs years back and every now and then somebody breaks a chain, but as long as you carry a spare chainlock you're safe. Schwalbe Procore didn't catch on at all, the Huck Norris thing looks promising but still a little underdeveloped, etc. With all the awesome products right now (look at how good suspension got the last few years), I can't believe tires still fail that often.
