Some nice finishing touches and build ideas.

At the USGP in LA he went through two Ui2 rear derailluers during warmup which was pretty impressive (yes, it was that muddy) but lucky has like 23 spare bikes....

I took the weekend off racing but the mud wasn't that bad when I rode the course on Friday and it didn't rain or snow after that.

Maybe muddy for Bend but the races I did in PDX were way, way worse than that.

Yeah pretty cool. The Parabox is still hard to look at but hey if it works for him. Out of interest, is there a weight limit for CX? Is it the standard 6.8?

In UCI races it is the standard UCI limit
