Starling Cycles' Prototype is a Steel High-Pivot 29er With 5 Speeds
@WAKIdesigns: just put a dh tyre on the back of your hardtail and forget it even exists and just concentrate on your front wheel. Haha

@WAKIdesigns: meh that’s not really true is it? What’s your geo doing as you bottom your forks as your shocks rebounding and then your rear wheel hits whatever made your fork bottom out as that’s rebounding?

@jlawie: yeah they handle better. They’re more responsive, sharper, easier to throw around, easier to hop obstacles / change line, I could go all day. Yeah they climb better this is obvious as you don’t have a shock stealing your pedal power and they accelerate a lot better so it’s never a problem adding a bit of speed to carry over a few roots or whatever. You just get used to unweighting the saddle to save that butthole from a hardtail pounding but I do this on my fullsuss anyway. And like I said your shock isn’t stealing your pedal power which really comes into its own when your riding around all day. Yeah obviously don’t turn up to fort William on your hardtail but I’m just talking about your regular non World Cup racer types of a mountain biker.

@vinay: Honestly most people would be better off on a hardtail just most people won’t accept that they’re not really good enough to justify a full suspension or think full suspension will make them a better rider when really they’re just making life harder for themselves. Hardtails handle better, climb better, way less tiring to ride around all day, easier to maintain, way cheaper, more fun better for your skills and honestly they feel like your going faster and truth be told they do go pretty fast. Full suspension is obviously better on rough sections of trail but a hindrance everywhere else.

Kaos Seagrave To Miss Maribor World Cup Due To Lack of UCI Points
@TheBearDen: no I’m not going down to the races and counting heads or anything and every area is different and yeah that style of riding is super popular here to just nobody seems that interested in the racing side anymore. Yeah I don’t think the EWS highlight videos are anywhere near good enough. There’s very little actual racing and a whole load of filler and slow mo. It’s rare I’ll actually watch one all the way through.

@njparider: have it at the same event then just have a different category for all the seriously talented riders who are to old or too good for the juniors but aren’t good enough to break the top 20 yet.

Kaos Seagrave To Miss Maribor World Cup Due To Lack of UCI Points
@chrismac70: honestly if you don’t make or aren’t capable of making the live stream what are you doing at a World Cup? Just making up the numbers? These riders need cutting out of world cups and they need a series where they can improve racing at their level with the ultimate goal of ranking up and making the world cups.

Is enduro continuing to grow though? Certainly feels like the hype has died. There’s absolutely no coverage for the EWS at all other than a live time sheet so nobody’s going to care about the EWS in a few years unless they do something to keep us interested. It already feels like it’s already on the way out and I don’t know anyone who’s really that bothered about racing local and national level Enduros ether where two years ago they were all the rage.

@vhdh666: Well that’s the problem isn’t it? But that’s what the sport needs. Ether a champions league style format or a second division. World Cup racing should be for the highest level of racers not 150 / 200 racers turning up for 70 qualification places or whatever it is. That’s not the elite is it?

Good there’s too many riders at the World Cup anyway and there’s only about 15 guys and three girls with any real chance of winning so why do we have 80 riders at an elite competition? They need a second tier series and leave the world cups for the best of the best.
