First Ride: 2019 GT Force & Sensor
@sspiff: This large GT has a longer seattube than my current bike and I can only just run a 150mm dropper atm, so if I wanted a large Force for the reach number I could only run a 125 dropper, I’d like to be able to run at least 150, if not 170 or so, just limits options is all.

Loris and Luca's Santa Cruz V10 29ers - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2018
@rchez08: Ah yes they are the current levers (can tell by the bar clamp) so it must be as you say. Was just a thought as i know the new levers have added more modulation.

First Ride: Öhlins Downhill Race Fork
Forks are so good and tuneable these days it's very hard to say one is better than the other, a better fork setup badly will be worse than a cheap fork setup well, proper setup will get you much further than anything else. Therefore i think price, durability, weight and if you're vain, looks/brand come into play more than damper performance.

Loris and Luca's Santa Cruz V10 29ers - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2018
Why both spending money and time when a 5 minute hack works just fine, i'm happy they don't waste money on unnecessary custom parts, the less the team costs to run the less the bikes have to cost to cover it (being very hopeful they pass the savings on though)

@unclesomebody: i'm not 100% but assuming they are the new XTR levers (from the new 4 pot XTR brakes) which are meant to be designed to have better modulation than the old levers.

Looks really nice but a shorter seat tube would be good, i'm always between a medium and large and would like to have the option of the longer reach without a giant seat tube that means a can't run a dropper with a descent length, i also think shorter seat tubes and lower stand-overs make frames look way better (mediums always look nicer than larges in my opinion)

First Look: Öhlins DH Race Fork
i think someones just clamped them differently, look at the A2C drawings, shows them level.

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
Wouldn't happen if you had a Shimano shadow mech

Review: NX Eagle - SRAM's New Affordable 12-Speed Drivetrain
615g!!! may as well strap an anchor to your'e rear wheel. To everyone saying Shimano is way behind what about SLX 11speed 11-46t, it's been out for ages, is just as good value (if not better) has a shadow mech that wont get wiped out by every rock, is just as compatible and the cassette is 150g lighter (which is a big deal for un-sprung mass) Once you forget about the 12 speed hype the marketing teams tell you you need its the smart option (XTR still has an 11 speed option because the pros didn't want 12) if you really need those extra 4 teeth at the top then go Eagle but in the real world i doubt many will care between 46 and 50t.

Santa Cruz's New V10 - Fort William World Cup DH 2018
It's not the flat that does that, its because Dirt mag had Vergier's Medium bike while this one is Greg's (i believe an XL) so this is much longer which helps detract from the bikes height with those big wheels (it also makes that pregnant bulge look less ridiculous) The medium look short and tall and in all honesty a little ugly but the big frame makes it a bit more in proportion and almost quite nice.
