Prototype Hayes DH Brake - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@b-wicked: You know how the discs on car brakes glow red hot under extreme use, while the discs on bike brakes erm...don't? Yeah. Slightly different applications.

@Barkit: You could probably find other "advantages" but.... then all of your advantages wouldn't have come directly from the Sram marketing pamphlet.

Aaron Gwin's Absolutely Incredible Finals Run: Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2017 - Video
@Ploutre: My thoughts exactly. Given how chewed up the main line was by that point, his inside lines were probably far grippier to ride on.

Cockpit Setups - Lenzerheide DH World Cup 2017
i think this depends on the terrain and conditions ridden more than anything. Not a Pro rider at all, but I often get through 2 weeks bikepark riding in morzine in the sun and barely wear my pads at all. On the other hand ive blown through a brand new set of pads in one (slightly drizzly) day riding sandy trails. Riding skill level will affect this a little, but nowhere near as much as trail conditions. Pad compound will also have an effect. Contact point and bite point adjusters shouldnt really have much effect on pad wear at all, as the pads should not contact the rotor unless you are pulling the lever no matter what settings you run.

Stemtee's World Cup Winning €4,000 Shock
I agree that a spherical bearing at both ends will greatly reduce shock wear, while having one only at one end will only eliminate certain types of sideloading. However with a spherical bearing at each end, the shock will be free to rotate left and right a little. Although this isnt a huge issue unless the piggyback chamber contacts something, its at least mildly annoying and I suppose may wear the bearings prematurely. I also find myself thinking spherical bearings at both ends may introduce a twisting force on the frame when the shock is compressed. I'm not sure how much real world effect this would have, but on a frame that is slightly misaligned already i can imagine it being an issue. And thank god for kitchens at parties. Or at a really good party, a garage.

Opinion: Calm Reflections of Big-Wheeled Panic
Josh Bryceland had the best season of his life, when he was one of the only guys still riding 26 against a field of 27.5s.... Food for thought...

Who else is feeling just a little smug about not wasting any of their cash on a brand new 650 dh bike?
