Carbon hardtail that can be run fat up to 29 wheels.
Excellent result for Scott and the new Spark! It's interesting to note that both Nino and Jenny were running DT Swiss forks on their bikes. Apparently this is the first Olympics since 2000 that the RockShox SID didn't take the gold. Before the event, the big story was Peter Sagan sitting out of the road…
So... are the riders the ones in trouble with the BLM now for riding an unofficial trail? :)

replied to 29+ RockShox PIKE?
 
Whoops, I guess somehow we missed this when it was announced back in March and at Sea Otter. :) Apparently there's also a 29+ Yari from RockShox.

replied to 29+ RockShox PIKE?
 
The PIKE is offered at 120mm-160mm travel so not sure if the 29+ version will go quite that high, but then again, why not?

started a topic: 29+ RockShox PIKE?
 
Anyone know anything about the 29+ RockShox PIKE? I was just browsing the SRAM website and found a couple references to this fork but I don't recall reading anything official... It doesn't appear to be a typo; there are several references, both on the RCT 3 and RC product pages. Apparently the 29+ PIKE will be Boost only.…
Sorry you feel that way sgniwder99. Our intent isn't to mock people, just to inform them that there are newer, better options out there that a lot of other riders are using and enjoying. Heck, I still don't own a dropper seat post myself!
I love how they put Truvativ and RockShox stickers on the first prototype. Sneaky, sneaky.

So it's a 5-mile out and back ride, right? I believe the latest review on the trail page makes it clear that only part of the trail is open to bikes.

Vail also owns Northstar at Lake Tahoe which has a pretty rad DH selection.

Hi Tour Guide, the name of the person who originally added the trail will always be displayed, even if edits are made. We could try to find a way to squeeze in a list of editors w/ dates the edits were made, but I'm not sure that will make it past our UI designer. :) Not sure what…
