The lower brace is offset to the drive side. There's a bottle mount to the left of it, though you can't fit a super giant bottle in there.

So @Toshi can pretend his new unridden Supreme DH bike isn't out of date for this season then :D

Gwin and the new Intense prototype. Quite candid about the struggles with equipment over the last few years. Hoping he and Dakotah smash it this year.

Steber was interviewed by outside(pb), they are apparently working on a 6bar design as well but the prototype isn't ready yet. They do plan on racing it this season as welp

I still find it kind of odd/humorous that the previous Intense team did quite well on that M29 frame and then it all fell apart when the team blew apart.

And that they started designing this frame right around when Neko designed his, while all still on the same team...


:popcorn:

Looking at the RAAW DH bike it is mad to think that there ever used to be a problem with toe/front wheel overlap on dh bikes...

Interesting similarities with what Neko is doing on his latest proto - high front pivot in line with a large front ring, Neko is using the Ochain, the RAAW seems to be doing without, intrigued to see ride reports.

Is that prime season?
Yeah kinda… when all the connecting lifts first open is when the tracks are not fully bike park hardpacked. After the winter the dirt gets fluffed up by the snow freeze thaw cycles. There´s a loamy mini season right before the lifts open but after the snow melts where we all shuttle the trails before they are open. The risk of early season is when it rains a lot and everything is soft it can go either way.

The other option is during Les Gets WC DH race. That’s the 3rd week in August.
