Round Up: 23 XC World Champs Bikes
@Noah353: he could be confusing the last gen top fuel to the 2020 top fuel as well. It's now a marathon race bike rather than an all out xc bike.

Orange Releases Short Travel Evo Versions of its Trail Bikes
@Dav82: you ever look up the price difference that X01, Fox Factory and a carbon cockpit introduces? I'm not arguing performance, I'm arguing cost and they are substantially more expensive than what's on offer on the orange.

@Dav82: and personally, I don't even think that the HB130 is particularly good value, it's just an easy comparison with this given the spec/manufacturing location arguments. There are SO many exceptional UK bike companies that offer much better value for much more exciting bikes. And if we're still using UK made as a selling point, I could go up the road from where I live and get a completely blinged out, UK hand made Stanton Switch9er FS for £4,500.

@Dav82: with a fox factory build, nicer finishing kit, better wheels and a more expensive drivetrain. Spec to the oranges up to the same standard and they'll probably end up costing more than the Hope. Also there's the small matter of the HB130 being an innovative carbon frame that's also made in the UK etc.

@Dav82: we're basically looking at Hope HB 130 pricing here for a similair build. So the Oranges seem properly overpriced.

Those are some insane prices. Do they come with carbon wheels or something?

Video: Fabio Wibmer and Vali Höll Shred Saalbach Bike Park on its Opening Weekend
Agreed, I spent a good few days around Leogang/Saalbach and only really found that the X-Line was worth riding and good fun. Spent half a day at Schladming during my drive back from Leogang and it was pretty much the most fun I'd ever had on a bike.

First Look: SRAM's New GX Drivetrain Offers 520% Range
@JSTootell: I don't know what to say to that, maybe it's a set up thing? I heard that eagle's a bit trickier to set up than others, but the bike I was demoing was indexed properly and the height seemed fine as well. I prefer the feel of SRAM shifters and I never had any issues on the 11 speed system so I was fully prepared to love eagle before I tested it. I'm running this on my XC bike as well so shifting under load is very much in line with the purpose of the bike, I'm a fairly big guy with a decent power output as well so it could be down to that? I noticed the difference immediately and was kind of annoyed that a groupset that's 4 times more expensive shifted worse.

@drpheta: This. I was running 11 speed sram for ages and never got the sram hate from everyone. But the last bike I demoed (and subsequently bought) had X01 eagle and I was really thrown off by how bad the shifting under load was - felt like I was going to snap the chain with every shift. I put on 12 spd SLX when I got the bike and never looked back, absolutely no issues with shifting under load.
