Video: The Latest Tech From the Lenzerheide DH World Cup - Smoke and Mirrors

Jul 6, 2022 at 14:38
by Henry Quinney  

As we get ready for what could be a novel dry race in the summer of 2022, we take a look at what new arrivals we have on the World Cup circuit. There are new bikes from brands both big and small but - and I would say to an even greater extent than usual - secrecy is something of a theme.

 1. Picture = 1000 words
2. 6:28min Video at 30fps = 11,640 Pictures
3. This video = 11,640,000 words
  • 5 3
 Most are just duplicates of the photo one frame before, so more like 5,000,000 words or so, but I see what yer smokin'!

 Only 9700 words for those of us in PAL. Pick a frame rate and be a dick about it

 @westmatteeussen: is anyone still using PAL ATSC or NTSC anymore???

 Does resolution affect the amount of words a picture equals

 @Bikerdude137: Perhaps it’s a vocabulary thing. (ie. 480p is 5th grade, 1080p is 12th grade, 4K is university, and… well… they don’t have a resolution high enough for @henryquinney’s vocab yet.)

 Also did you include the amount of words said in the video because that would add on too. Are random sounds worth any words? I'm definitely overthinking this

 @islandforlife: It looks very unique,like carbon tubes glued to some steel lugs? I think it is a prototype for new kinematics cos the frame is far from being a serial production one. Even the seat stays looks like the carbon one´s in the Enduro.

 @henryquinney...Out of interest, is your dad Tom Sellick or Ron Jeremy? The lip resemblance is uncanny.

 [meme] why not both? [/meme]
  • 4 0 can't compare that thing on his face to either of those guys, it's not even close brother

 The prototype demo looks good,half DH bike half bike packing DH bike hehehe. That cover is really big. Only thing evident is no more links in the seat stays/rockers arms.
I bet it would have a huge SWAT cavity that´s why is so secret,so you can hide an entire bocadillo,not a sad thin baguette like in the other S bikes.

 Where are the pictures!!

 They covered that on their last podcast. Video has a faster turn around as Henry works for PB. The photos have a slower turn around as the photographers shoot for other clients, and this means they are a bit slower getting their stuff out.

 Mustaches be like, and a windowless van, with "Free Candy" painted on the side. Cruzing through the school zones.
