2018 Racing Rumors - What's True and What Isn't
@fabdemaere: I see now that what you referred to above is correct though, so thanks for sharing. Oddly the three year length of the YT mob contracts has not been mentioned in any of the other rumor threads as far as i can remember, but then i have not been following them that closely. With this being you know rumors and not a doctoral research, my research on the matter is as you so succinctly point out, non-existent. Kinda like your ability to convey information without it being a put down. Oh well. I guess just typing " The YT mob are on three year contracts" with a link would not been as easy. but year three for the YT mob should be good.

2018 Racing Rumors - What's True and What Isn't
Perhaps the biggest rumor that is not being addressed above: The Mob loosing the YT part of the moniker. True? I have no idea. Personally i really like the vibe of the YT Mob, but then that ain't going to change much just due to a new, bigger named frame. also, hasn't it pretty much been confirmed that the new Canyon bike that is so sender'esque in shape is a new Canyon Torque? I would be kind of surprised if Canyon decided to ditch the Strive design rather than seeking to refine it gradually. It is pretty darn good as is, if a bit steeper up front than it could be. The frames have been updated since they first were released and are still doing more than well both sales wise (as far as i know) and test wise. Replacing it with a non-bottle front triangle seems to be an odd thing to do for an enduro race bike - as bottles are all the rage now, while transitioning the current strive to a 29'er with a similar frame/geo would make a lot of sense. But then again, there are rumors of a second new Canyon long travel enduro bike, so that might be the strive replacement being tested.

2018 Racing Rumors - What's True and What Isn't
actually, imo with cesar rojo coming aboard and doing their kinematics and helping design the bikes, Intense are about as up to date wrt to the dh bike as it is possible to be. Overpriced - sure, outdated - surely not (or, their graphics kinda are :) )

Long Live D1: Whistler Bike Park - Video
To write the password - press on the "views etc" blue lettering that is usually underneath the videos and the password video eh, letterbox? - meaning where you write the password - appears. The video will then appear. Huzzah!

The Tourist 2: Makken and His Dog Charge Geiranger Fjord - Video
This video has caused some controversy in the mountain biking community in Norway, especially among the long time rider community who has been active over years and years to promote joint use, building trails and lessen trail conflicts. Mads intermittently shows pretty poor trail etiquette, cutting corners, riding off the trail, roosting like crazy and so on - arguably not riding within the confines of the trails and riding in a way that would be harmful for the trail if a lot of riders were to use it in such a way. While the trails are not used that extensively, the behavior that Makken shows in this video is the kind of inconsiderate behavior that is adding fuel to the fire of "conservationists" who wants to ban mountain bike riding in a lot of spots all over Norway. As such, the awesome scenery and solid trails deserves a better showing that this videos does, which is a shame.

New Kona Process Carbon: EWS Spy Shots - Crankworx Whistler 2017
main take away from my post -> i am surprised that when making a significant investment in going full carbon, that Kona do not also further refine their rear suspension. Perhaps it was a bridge too far, or that they are sufficiently happy with their current kinematics.

@captainspaulding: a well designed horst link is superior to a well designed sp if managing brake squat is a priority. If not, then no - they would be pretty much similar in performance if executed properly. With the advent of 1x systems, single pivot designs can be optimized and made to work extremely well. If you also know how and when to brake and not drag your brakes, then yes - a single pivot can work extremely well. That is not to say that something else is not better. then again, kona and cannondale - the examples cited above - are not the best examples of super innovative designs imo wrt to kinematics. Dependable and well working yes, pushing the envelope - hardly. That can be both a good and a bad thing ;)
