Kevin Miquel had a breakout season in 2019, finishing the year in 3rd place overall. The French rider also placed 4th at Zermatt last year, so he's certainly one to watch this weekend. He'll be aboard an XL Sunn Kern, a size that wasn't available last season, which should work well with his 190 cm (6'3") height.
Hutchinson's Toro tires have been installed to deal with the rain that's predicted to arrive - at the moment, it's looking like it could be a wet and sloppy weekend. Other than that, Miquel's setup is quite similar to what he was running previously, and he's eager to pick up where he left off.
Grip tape on the brake levers and shifter thumb paddle for extra traction.
Formula handles the braking and suspension duties.
A 36-tooth chainring ensures Miquel will need to be going silly fast before he spins out.
must be a floating rear shock, right?
Nowadays with covid I’ve been having to do all my own stuff.
I guess Frank Miller knew that all along, once I've got my hands on SinCity with the yellow bastard and red Chucks, the books never slipped out of them until I finished reading.
I love myself insane, yes.
Spamming the human owning it.
Give me rare and beautiful!
Never seen an Ibis too.
I've never seen an expencive carbon bike with anything other then RS/Fox/Marz/lefty too?!?
I guess the greatest decade of MTB is dawning.
People want what they've been told to want, and most of it was lies, like always. That's why Shimano is going down and that makes me sad.
This thing doesn't even have a giant monolithic looking BB area or a low horizontal shock. Frames with those sort of features are even worse in this respect.
For me, being easily mistaken for a motorized bike is a non-starter. Anyone else out there have similar thoughts?
