    Ok... so it's pretty clear it's the rim/wheel/tire combo. Shoulda stayed 27.5... at least then he could finish races.

    Is he still riding a Summum? I don't think that Canyon will have another top contender on their team to be honest. I Barel possiby going to another bike company?

    Danny has been here in Whistler riding for the last few days, but I haven't seen him riding with FB. He has been riding with a couple of friends on V10s the times I have run across him.

    @Gary isn't being sarcastic though. Scots can't imagine anyone being friends with anyone

    Looks like they re-positioned the main pivot to a higher location, which is good because the location of the old one made it bob like a pigeon pecking with anything over a 30T ring. here it comes stock with 34T and looks to be just under or at the chainline.

    34T and at the chainline


    vs

    30T and much lower than the chainline


    Oh well.


    Also, Brook likes everyones pics. I follow him on there and he likes pics of Treks, Giants, you name it. So I wouldn't take anything from that.
