Please tell me you have rode one, so i can vote you for a Pulizer.

Please tell me you are not high on fairy dust like Footdragger, talking about and analyzing a bike you've never ridden.

Have you ridden a WRR, cos i have ridden a 640 ADV, and your post makes no sense.

The 640 for sure has more power, but allso lot more weight. I would say it's slightly more powerful than a WRR.

Funny, the WRR i owned and rode had a power delivery like a 125 2t. Plenty of character, and challenge to get best out of it to keep one from yawning.

You don't think the WRR can handle buffeting and winds better than, say EXC? I mean WRR weighs a ton more, hell the WRR is so heavy, it is tornado proof. No?

I am comparing the weights to the heavyest EXC, since power doesn't really matter.

Hardly anyone uses BB's here, racers included. They weigh too much, and replacement levers are way cheaper than set of BB's. Short levers hardly ever brake. And trees should be avoided.

Honestly, the hills don't look that steep. Could be done on a WRR. It's just that no pro has yet tried it with a WRR, they have to ride what their team provides. Shame.
