Pit Stop: EWS Aspen 2017
Jul 28, 2017 at 1:14
Josh Carlson's new Giant Reign, complete with RockShox's lockout option.
RockShox has a new GripShift style lockout system for their shocks in the works. So far, we have only spotted it on the bikes of Josh Carlson, Cecile Ravanel, and Jerome Clementz.
Adrien Dailly's Lapierre Spicy
Dailly's cockpit setup is straight forward. No remotes, no fancy lever treatments.
Dailly's Rockshox Vivid coil shock. Reportedly, it has been very, very custom tuned by Nico Vouilloz.
Prototype Michelin tires
34 teeth get the job done for Dailly. A Truvativ top guide keeps things in line when the going gets rough.

I came in here expecting more tbh.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:03)
But that Eagle XX1 drivetrain though?
Mind = blown!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:56)
It's Peter Parker's bike.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:21)
: why? That's nothing special... or am I missing something blatantly obvious?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:24)
: yes, the sarcasm
(Jul 28, 2017 at 7:08)
Oh poor you.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 7:46)
I came in here not expecting to actually like the looks of a Lapierre. I'm disappointed in myself...
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:04)
Looks like an old Nomad
(Jul 28, 2017 at 10:06)
(Jul 28, 2017 at 12:50)
It's a bit much imo
(Jul 28, 2017 at 17:04)
: spicy is a seriously badass machine even if it looks a little goofy
(Aug 1, 2017 at 7:32)
: Sadly it kinda does, nomad 2 was an awesome bike.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 2:45)
Gripshift style lock out for your shocks = accidentally locking out your forks every time you land a big jump.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:45)
moto style! twist the wrist and accelerate!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:38)
I dont understand why they couldnt do the hydraulic lockout like my monarch xx has with the push button in the bar onstead of this crappy gripshift stuff. Ive always hated the design youll never find me rocking gripshift anything!!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:43)
On the bar* instead* lol big thumbs
(Jul 28, 2017 at 10:20)
: They could, racers asked for this.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 20:56)
: well whoever asked is a moron lol
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:58)
Why wasn't the article just called "Adrien Dailly bike check"??
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:31)
Just because there´s a secret picture of Carlson´s shock. The same that was shown a couple days ago, btw.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 2:57)
That's some big ass tires,in fact Dailly's bike looks more freeride than enduro. Can I predict 200mm travel enduro bikes for 2020?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:07)
with 29" wheels and 223 rotors?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:28)
Lapierre? Aren't they just an e-bike company now?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 3:41)
It is not Vouilloz who is doing some custom tuning on Dailly's bike, it is the same person who was doing custom tuning on Vouilloz's bikes... Some people prefer or are forced to stay in the shadow of big brands!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 12:39)
Maybe Vouilloz prescribed what tune was to be used?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:35)
Lapierre looks like it's been crashed head on.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 7:29)

These Michelin look quite good. They seem to be a Reinforced version of the Force AM. On the other hand, I'm not fond of these XC remote thingy. One of the cool thing about 1x is less stuff and cables on the bar. That's why I won't buy a Scott Genius even though I find them gorgeous
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:40)
The TwinLoc is great, makes my LT feel like a hard tail on the climbs but then flick the lever and its a root and rock smashing beast. I didnt like all the extra cables either but they are functional for the bike. Try one out if you can and then then youll know if the ride and convenience of the remote is worth a couple extra cables.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 7:33)
: True. I rode one last year and the fork and shock weren't tuned for me and at first I thought I was riding the biggest bottle of turd butter.
Went back to the shop, tweaked the pressures and hit a monster gravel climb and beastly shuttle that had some tech climbs mixed in and I loved flipping that switch for both shocks to go from sprinter to ripper immediately.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:40)
What I find ridiculous is that every piece of the puzzle to run lockouts electronically with a Di2 lever is available, but no brand has actually put it out there. Heck, Kabush was running the fox system with the little slider something like 5 years ago now, & raved about how much easier it was to move when you were at the limit.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:53)
: It will show up eventually and be marketed as this game changing technological advancement. It will cost $1800 on top of everything else and only be available on specific bikes as it will be designed around a proprietary frame and suspension design. We will all be angry about the price and inability to retro fit to older bikes but within 3 years there will be a redesign and it will be backwards compatible.
I will end up buying my friends old bike after 10-20 hours of use because he gets 3 new bikes every year and countless demo bikes because hes living the dream. I will be made fun of for being a dentist or some bs
mountain biker problems.....
(Jul 28, 2017 at 8:05)
Man, Lapierre used to be such sexy bikes a while back. Now they're just nasty. Anything with a hunchback top tube is ugly. Does anybody know a good reason for these hunched top tubes? If bike designers are adding these hunched top tubes just because they can, they should be dragged out back and shot.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 10:20)
Think I read it was the only way to accommodate a water battle while still having the front shock strut on the down tube (for strength)...
(Jul 28, 2017 at 13:41)
If you look at it, you can see how the hunch makes room for the shock. The shock is mounted high on the downtube to maximize the shock length.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:29)
Does anyone make a lockout remote that locks both front and rear at the same time? Seems like it would be pretty easy to do. Forgive my ignorance, but is there a benefit to just having the rear locked vs both?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:37)
Scott has twin Lock, looks pretty messy though.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:55)
For climbing roots/rocks I don’t lock out my fork.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:42)
I would think rear locked and front open would give you some good compliance on a long maybe slightly rooty climb. More of a hard tail feel possibly?
So much going on to remember though... !
I like my dropper post for example but I am not seem less with it yet. I can't even imagine having a dual lock out feature.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:59)
: but it works great so it comes down to priorities. Have a clean cockpit or have every control at thumbs reach.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 10:23)
I do not know if RS still does it, but they had a double hydraulic lockout at one point. This was a couple years ago though
(Jul 28, 2017 at 11:00)
Last year the coverage was all "short travel bikes" with photos of Ropelato's 5010 and other more trail-ish steeds. Now it's all coils and beefy tires. The pace of last year's race must've cleared up a few misconceptions.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 8:17)
Gripshift shock lockout seems like such a bad idea
"Ay I'm dropping in to this crazy rock garden" *Thud thud thud *click* "Oh wow looks like I was gripping too tightly and I locke-" *goes over the bars*
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:51)
Well that was disappointing
(Jul 28, 2017 at 3:03)
Not a single 29'er teddy bear in sight. Very disappointing
(Jul 28, 2017 at 9:19)
Those Michelin Tires, yes please!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:05)
Check out these spy shots posed up against these majestic rocks.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 13:39)
If Dailly's bike has "no remotes" how does he actuate his dropper post? Also I thought he runs a shock lockout, at least sometimes.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:19)
Misleading title is misleading.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 2:45)
Why using a short sring on the rear shock?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 2:50)
Length doesn't matter, stroke does. So if the coils are further apart you can get shorter spring with the same stroke and smaller weight. Enduro... Weight... You know how this goes
(Jul 28, 2017 at 2:55)
: Length doesn't matter, stroke does........ Truer words have never been
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:57)
: asian boys are relieved.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:40)
Thanks for the answer
(Jul 28, 2017 at 3:20)
Is that it?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 7:47)
You should be used to people saying that to you
(Jul 28, 2017 at 4:49)
Not even a side shot to see if this bike is as strange as looks or just bad camera angles?
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:50)
Really wanting to highlight those Michi's. The Spicy is filthy, yet not a spec on the tires.
(Jul 28, 2017 at 5:53)
(Jul 28, 2017 at 12:30)
Hm... Where's all the other bikes?
(Jul 29, 2017 at 15:18)
Make the grip shift lever work for the dropper post!!!!!
(Jul 28, 2017 at 6:15)
that looks like a foes bike copy
