Video: This is the Fastest* Bike in the World
Haters can hate, but simple fact is that she accelerated from 100 mph to 184 mph under her own power. Sure there is drafting involved but I dare say that none of the tough talking little pricks on this website would have the balls to do 200 km/h on a bike, let alone almost 300 km/h! Have a look at the actual video of the run with the salt and shit flying everywhere. It's hardcore and the margin for error is minuscule at that speed. Amazing effort.

That squeaking was the cries of a bike which just came second in the Whistler EWS!

Dawid Godziek Lands World’s First Quadruple Tail Whip on a Mountain Bike - Audi Nines MTB 2018
@SnowshoeRider4Life: The front wheel kicks up the dirt not the foot. Watch again @ 15sec mark. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills or something with all the comments saying he touched the ground.

Video: Insane Crash at the Tour de France
where do you see that? All I see is back wheel locking up a couple of times and skidding a bit - front wheel keeps turning and steering. Try replaying at half speed. Also as someone else said, there was a piece of paper on the apex of the corner, so he was basically having to do emergency braking due to unexpected line change - at crazy speed.

It happened because he was riding a Specialized!

Video: How Do EWS Pros Beef Up Their Bikes?
Interesting to see Mitch Ropelato not listening to other riders or using common sense and going for shorter travel bike, and then having a massive whinge on VitalMTB about the trail being too gnarly and having a go at the EWS organisers. Muppet

Bike Check: Sam Blenkinsop's Norco Aurum HSP 29er - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
@FLATLlNE: yeah I don't know the details - the hubs I was looking at were the xd642 - 6 pawl. I searched them online and got results like: http://forums.mtbr.com/santa-cruz/hightower-novatec-hubs-defective-warning-1064376.html Also didnt help that no info about hubs on novatec website - had to look at old 2017 catalog on 3rd party website to try get proper info.

I heard something similar, but they also read about the massive issues Santa Cruz bikes had with the Novatec hubs falling apart very quickly - to the point where Santa Cruz had to swap to DT Swiss as standard to stop the constant stream of warranty claims.. I am building a wheelset now and was considering the Novatec hubs, but just didnt want to stuff around with warranty claims and not being able to ride.
