Kyle Strait's Commencal Furious - Red Bull Rampage 2017
It would be awesome to know rider weights as well for these bike checks to make better sense of the suspension settings. Especially extreme riding situations like rampage.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
@carym: that's odd because my old Entourage had a RS lyrik with a 20mm axle, with a zee hub and centrelock rotor...

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
@duzzi: that was exactly point I was trying to make. I did ramble on a little there so it might have gotten lost in translation. My bad haha. I agree completely, 142 to 148 was too incremental to make a difference to us.

Have Your Say on the Ever-Changing Bike Standards
@cky78: I agree 100%. I think part of the issue and the reason we see "innovative" standards moving forward at such an incremental pace is that alot of these stem from the professional race aspect of the sport. When a win comes down to tenths or hunredths of a second, changes by the millimetre or weight shaved by a gram can make a big difference in the hands of a world class rider. But that type of innovation happens in any sport at the professional level. I believe this is where and why its become a problem in the mountain bike industry is because component and bike companies are so quick to push these improvements onto the average rider, that alot of times. Especially in most recent years. The question of whether or not the average rider will noticeably benefit from said innovations is never honestly considered not to mention the lack of forethought when it comes to future proofing them. Case and point being the 15mm x 100mm axle standard. It was an answer to a (in my honest opinion) completely non-existent problem. So much so that not to long ago we started seeing the spacing increased back to 110mm in the form of "boost 15x110" and now the rebirth of "20x110" on long travel single crowns. So roughly 5-6 years later, (2011-2012 is when, if my memory is correct 15x100 was introduced) we've basically walked around in one giant circle. I also don't remember enough complaints about 20x110 being too stiff or too heavy by the majority of riders to warrant 15x100 in the first place. All in all in my opinion, save the incremental changes for the racetrack and the pros. When that change has been proven and built upon to the point where it will significantly benefit the rest of us (e.g dropper posts, long front/short rear geo etc), can be effectively be used by the majority of the industry and consideration has been given to changes that might happen in the future. Then pass it on to us to enjoy.

Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
Awesome brakes! The only thing i think shimano brakes are missing is a pad contact adjustment.
