@Matt76: A great selection. Now I know what you're on about my dream medium size XC bike for BC XC racing would be 66HA, 77SA, 440mm reach/seattube length/rear centre length, 90mm head tube length, 330mm BB height (with 2.3" tires), 110mm rear/120 front. 25.5lbs with a 125mm dropper and completely pimp build. I dream about that bike. I bet the next Spark won't be far off that. Sniper or the Unno Horn is probably the closest currently available.

@Matt76: I don't know anyone who is more progressive with XC set-up than me but again, they are riding those climbs over threshold for 6 laps. They need a bike they can just get down the descents and be as light as possible on the climbs. Guess what? The climbs absolutely deceided this race.

@headshot: I think he was running the dropper to prevent flats more than anything else.

@WhatAboutBob: I think Nino was so strong on the climbs he didn't need to take the risk of flatting on the descents.

@bosnianrider: Better descender than half the men's field.

@COnovicerider: Marc Beaumont won a Val Di Sole World Cup DH. He got rinsed trying to beat Nino's in race descent times on an XC bike. You have no clue how pinned he and a few others ride those minimal bikes/tires. The average beer league race winner on here would shit their pants if you put them on Nino's bike.

@Matt76: If you had raced XC at pro level you would know they are making lightweight tire compromises that are right on the limit of descending grip. The woman who got third went over the bars twice. That's how much time she lost on the descents V's the climbs. BTW if you had watched the race you would have seen Neff pin the descents better than you ever could on the same bike.
