First Ride: The 2020 Demo 29 - Specialized's New Aluminum DH Race Machine
The fact that Bruni has won so many big races on a 135 rear end shows how stupid, overhyped, and unnecessary the wide hubs are unless you are really big. Besides the better bike handling you get from not hitting your heels on the chainstays all the time, a narrower rear hub is more aerodynamic and lighter. The frames, wheels, and pivots should be where you beef things up for rear end stiffness, not just take short cuts like every other company out there and make a wider hub. Specialized deserves big props for trying to keeping it narrow.

I like the new axle path and will take credit for it, but I won't take any legal action if I'm not given it.

WAKi-bikes of the Future: Y-ME Schmetterling
Sure, but if the concentric pivot is great why not make the c.o.g. even lower? http://m.pinkbike.com/u/protour/album/Potential-2016-Demoproducts Waki and Jason@specialized have seen my dream concept bike, I'm more than a little disappointed it didn't make it prototype status for this big race. I assume they are getting the patent finalized first.

I assume they are using the helmet pads to replace chamois?

Pinkbike Poll: Can Today's Mid-Travel Trail Bike Be Significantly Improved?
And while you are at it, how about corresponding riding gloves sold with the dropper post that will shock your hands every time you touch your seat to condition you to keep from pulling up on your dropper post and damaging it when it is in the descend position.
