Results: Downhill Presented by IXS - Crankworx Les Gets 2017
@leftCoastBurn: good comments! I'm sure it will be like Enduro racing. Some riders will prefer one wheel size over the other. Some riders will go back and forth depending on the track, etc. (team size/support allowing)

Scott Enduro Cup - Angel Fire Course Preview Video
@bikekrieg: You miss the point... would you take the turns out of a dual slalom course so you could go faster straight down the hill?

@TheTooth: It looks like more than just deciding on what line to ride? It looks like the guy almost swaps over to another trail section or something? But IDK? Maybe it was a pretty common complaint that it was too twisty right there and it killed speed and ruined the flow so it got changed? Maybe that's a "trail nexus" and there is just more than one way through? It's private land, so maybe they don't care if people are modifying the trail? I assume before the race that they flagged the course, so maybe that section was OK to ride and race just as he did.. maybe that's actually the "correct" way through that section? I admit, mostly I was just talking shit because of all the 29er DH stuff at the time... For sure a racer is looking for the best line, the fastest way down the track. But they can't CHANGE the track? (or I guess I haven't heard of a "race" that it was OK to do so???)

@TheTooth: Well I'm sure all my years of riding Otero have been a total waste not knowing where the "good lines" were at... Admitidly AngelFire is a bike park, park lines should flow and obviously that guys a great rider. Just jumped out at me with the big wheels taking on downhill being such a topic of discussion of late and then seeing what looks like a course change to benefit a big wheel on what is said to be a Race Course Preview...?

"French lines"? Does that refer to all the corners in the "single track" where his 29er can't go around tight enough/fast enough so he just makes a new straighter section of trail for himself? :)

Pinkbike Poll: If Racing Does Improve the Breed, Will You Trade up to 29-inch Wheels?
One team brought a new 29er and your acting like every other bike ever built just fell over and cracked...???

Right back at ya dude... I see you edited your "buy/sell" so now it doesn't say anything about you needing a large...??? (FYI, editing your buy and sell ad like that is pretty much the definition of "sketchy") first thing he says is he's 6'2" and the XL fits perfect. Then I point out that his ad said he was selling it because the XL was too big and he needed a large. (didn't say how tall he was in the ad) Then he tells me he had to say that because the shop he works for won't let him sell a bike within 8 months unless it's the wrong size. That explanation didn't seem to make much sense to me. What shop sells the wrong size bike to their employee's often enough to need such a clause? Why would they want anyone to think they'd sell their employee's the wrong size bike and not "fix it" in some way...??? No sense? I've asked about this again numerous times and no explanation. (and obviously now he's edited the buy/sell ad, so I guess his shop doesn't care now....?) :) Around that time I noticed he has another MEDIUM frame that he's selling because it's too small. (hence he probably needs a large right?) Then he tells me on that one he did order a large, but they sent him a medium. (again, so he needs a large right, like how this all started???) Which is fine, but then why does his ad for that frame infer he bought it smaller on purpose to use for part time dirt jumping...??? Why give one reason in the ad, and then give another reason in a message? sketchy! :) Then after all kinds of back and forth, after this guy goes on about how dare I question his integrity, etc. Then he tells me he had a 140mm fork on the XL big honzo. (which reduces the reach) I mean, wouldn't you think if someone asked you about the "fit" and your telling them it "fits" perfect. (especially when it's a frame only) That you might want to mention you had modified the stock geometry by using a longer fork...??????? :) I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the stuff this guy is selling. But I'd sure hate for someone to throw their hard earned cash and end up with a bike that they can't ride because it doesn't fit... Thanks!
