Final Results - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2017
really bad luck for Minaar this weekend... However, seeing the Enve rim fail by the end of Minaar's run, I remembered that incredible run from Gwin with his DT Swiss rim withstanding all the abuse...

Unno's Showstopping Carbon DH Bike: First Ride - Crankworx Whistler 2017
I saw a prototype in Vallnord in september 2016, and it blew me out of my mind. Would fap to it again.

Is This Linkage Fork the Future of Suspension? - Crankworx Whistler 2017
We will have to wait until it hits production to see if less torsional stiffness (longitudinally and vertically) can be compensated with less brake dive and a higher control of wheel path, within a reasonable weight. I highly doubt it, but I wouldn't mind to be proven wrong. P.D. not every single idea has to be embraced for the sake of it, especially if there are so many arguments against this one. Let people be sceptical, instead of embracing inventions without questioning them. Too many "revolutionary ideas" in the mtb industry have failed miserably, and have cost investors and riders too much money

Is This Linkage Fork the Future of Suspension? - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@cueTIP: As an engineer my main concern regarding this fork is torsional stiffness, since there is such a huge distance between the front wheel and where the paralelograms meet the frame. I find it hard to believe that this system is light and has a torsional stiffness comparable to its traditional counterpart while offering enough room for your knees when pedaling. You can only have 2 out of those 3. And since we consumers are such fools, I'm almost certain that the designers have given priority to points 1 and 3. What engineering solution will dampen lateral compliances? Hope you enjoy vague and inaccurate steering And since nobody will actually buy this and use it, I'm not even going to start talking about the dinamic loads on the bearings that will lead to premature wear much faster than in any rear suspension. P.D. I tried finding some information about the competittiveness of their enduro bikes in the enduro world but had no success, maybe you can help me out? Anyway, BMW also used cardan transmissions in some of their bikes, and time has proven that design to be inferior, so I really hope nobody uses that as an argument when some dipshits design a bike around that concept.

@cueTIP: thats why I said professional motorcycling; big and heavy cruiser motorbikes for Jerrys are a different topic

Why the hell would something that has not caught on in the professional motorcycling world work in mountain bikes, where weight is such an issue?
