    Basically it will only take one rider to win a WC race with one to see them being the new fashion.

    Whilst I agree with you on principal the way XC racing works just doesn’t lend itself to a downhill bias, none of the top riders are losing much time on the descents anyway, so don’t stand to gain much.

    I think it’ll be more likely we’ll see them in the lower levels of racing first. I saw people using them at the Brass Monkeys enduros in January and December, and there was nothing technical in either. If there was less of a weight penalty and they did one to fit my bike I’d be interested to try one, and it’s naive to think they’ll not improve in the former in the coming years.

    Loco BM Racing team members were using them for specific events last year, notably the BC bike race, there’s a brilliant picture of Huw riding a steep techy bit with the eventual winner climbing down it behind him. 😀

    Can this entire thread be added to the 1st World Problems thread? 🙂

    Guess they’re not essential for stage racing yet then 🙂
