Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
@hitarpotar: Yep that's just an example and my 30t front ring is pretty small compared to what a competitive XC rider would use. Bottom line, you can still ride relatively fast if you want to yet I don't see a lot of MTB riders, whatever the number of chainrings used, riding that swiftly from the trail.

Dunno, I pass catch and pass roadies with my 1x12 MTB setup on a regular basis when I'm pedaling back home from the trail. At 100rpm you are already at 40kph in the 30x10 gear + 2.35 29" tires. It's not like I'm contesting a road time trial after all.

I like the people putting on a good show but does everything need to be turned into some kind of competition/classification ?

@OhioOutside: That flat was in the last lap and didn't cost him a place. But he may have catched Cooper before the line had he not flatted as he was ~1m45 from the lead before that last flat.

Yes Nino still has quite a lead. Mathieu Van der Poel, the only consistent rider in the podium is still second but skipped MSA for the Euro road championships. Sam Gaze has a habit of DNFing, Anton Cooper is irregular. Kerschbaumer has been fast in the 3 last world cups but didn't score a lot of point in the first 3 WC as he got results in the 20th to 42th place.

@WAKIdesigns: Are there still people using seat bags ? I though all have been lost in the trails.

"The NAILD suspension layout is designed to work best with a shock that has a very low amount of damping." if that is the case why are they using an air shock and not a simpler coil (not a coil shock) ?

If you are not riding in the mountain you are not "mountain biking".

Review: Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt Carbon 70
I actually like my 30/10-50 gear setup. It opened me a lot of possibilities as it allows me to ride climbs that I'd use to walk. Sure in those cases I don't ride it fast but I'm still faster than walking and I just hate putting a foot down. It's especially nice when you are with a buddy who is riding an e-bike as they tend to go anywhere regardless of the gradient. On the other hand I have no use of a bigger top end, even when riding on the road to the trail I can still catch some roadies at cruising speed.
