Fox Announces New FIT4 Fork Damper & Roller Bearing Kit for Shocks
@Highclimber: A tight bushing fit results in loads of stiction and a loose fit means a wobbly back end. I always feel like most of the rear suspension damping on my bikes is coming from bushing friction rather than the from the damper. I get what you're saying about longevity though. Ultimately it's a performance vs. maintenance trade off. Given that there are lots of other bearings that need replacing anyway, I'd go for performance.

Video: Ben Cathro Searches for Smooth Lines in Val di Sole
Watching what other riders are up to and learning from them is a part of the sport. Ben has no affiliation and goes public with his material so hard to see how that's providing anyone with an unfair advantage. If a rider that has a sweet line I guess they'll have to keep it secret until their race run :) I'd be more worried about bigger teams that have the resources and may already have spotters, to let their riders at the top know about developing lines, track conditions, accident blackspots etc. Personally I'd rather not know and just get on with riding my own lines. Also it's the highest average speed that gets the fastest time, not who's fastest through a particular section. So as a spectator it's very interesting to watch, but I'm not sure it's really useful for individual riders that all have their own strengths/weaknesses and riding style.

Review: Cube's 29" Downhill Bike - the Two15 SL
Ridden my mates a few times and I really liked it, but I like low/short bikes. It has a few issues though - not nearly progressive enough at the back so bottoms a lot with correct spring rate, or set it up super stiff but then kinda defeats the purpose of having a DH rig. Closest he got to a good setup was with a Rock Shox Vivid. Back wheel buzzes the saddle a lot also. Shame they didn't sort the suspension when going from 27.5 to 29 - missed opportunity there. I've heard that a lot of ex team riders have given feedback about it, but doesn't seem like DH is a focus for cube.Their trail bikes like the Stereo has a much better sorted rear end.
