Qualifying Results: Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
Yea but everybody knows who Brendon is, his pictures will still turn up online from this weekend, people want to ride his signature grips and pedals etc etc. Not the fastest racer but looks great on the bike and can hold his own at rampage etc (how many DHers do that now?) - if I was a bike company he would me onmy list of people to sign.

Scott's New DH Prototype Looks Closer To Production - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
@Matt76: are you looking at this from a perspective of kinematics and performance or just 'because looks the same'?

So going from a simple single pivot with a linkage to a Horst link style bike is going backwards?

@m1dg3t: you would prefer to ride an inferior race bike because it is 'different'? It ain't a fashion show, no points are giving for originality.

Funny then that the only patented part of the session is it's ABP (did it get granted or did DW contest it, can't remember) which it utilises because it is a single pivot -this Scott isn't. The session has more in common with old Konas that pre date it by years than it does to this bike.

Aaron Gwin Talks World Cup Racing - Video
@BenPea: Yea but you are talking about the past now, Minaar is still up there which is amazing but for how long? Ratty is long gone from the WC scene along with Peaty. Its fairly well agreed nowdays that the partying / wild side of WC DH is very very toned down compared to years ago.

Aaron Gwin Talks World Cup Racing - Video
Fair point but the MTB lot are a difficult crowd when it comes to this stuff, we want a rider that wins, drinks, parties, has a wild personality, is a nice guy, has time for fans, doesnt try too hard but wins anyway, does wheelies etc etc you get what I mean. People like Brendan and Wyn are 'cool' but when it comes to the clock are off-pace, Sam Hill and Gwin get some crap about how they are in interviews and the pits but on the bike the results speak for themselves. I suppose we are just used to some guys that seem to be able to do both but the days of this are nearly gone, WC DH is super tight and riders have to work for it now in every aspect, getting smashed the night after a race may not work out when you start the next rounds practice in 4 days.

RockShox Boxxer World Cup - First Ride
@PaFelcio: They fit but the increased fork offset may make your bike handle a little 'funny', I personally hate high offset forks with steep head angles but have no problem with higher offset forks if the HTA is suitable.
