Bike Check: JP Bruni's Specialized Demo - DH Masters World Champion
@hamncheez: Any hit burly enough to bend a hanger is likely going to take a derailleur. What a hanger does do is not permanently attach said bendy part to your expensive frame. The spec guard just makes the bendy part last longer at no expense to the frame.

That’s been a spec thing for a long time. It’s just a brace that clamps over the axle end and then sticks a little rod down into the derailleur head end to support and keep everything straight. It actually works really well to strengthen the hanger.

@tyler555g: He’d be scary to ride with. One of those you don’t know what silly thing he’s going to try and die guys. It’d be different if he was riding stuff out. (Don’t die dude!)

You also have clutch derailleurs and common chain stay guarding to thank now as well. You don’t realize how much noise these kill until you have one loosen up after riding quiet bikes. (My bikes aluminum with aluminum wheels but runs silent with these modern niceties)

Video: Gee and Dan Atherton Go Sky High on Another New Trail at Dyfi Bike Park
Seeing the Atherton bro’s shredding and going huge together is always so fun to watch. It’s like some classic Earthed section.

@grizzlyatom: I think they have before. Tires too. It’s a little wasteful really.
