Awesome trailer. I really like these new HD films with great videography. All of The Collective trailers are really well done too.

On a similar note, I just saw this posted on MTBR. What a great mix of trials and AM riding. What a talented rider! So freakin sweet:

It can. I have seen it eat completely through and cause enough damage for it to break. It can be fixed in either case.

This is a friend of mine.... He does good work.

Well, Gummee, I went by the LBS this morning.

I'm no longer in the market for a new bike.

Also only running it as a 1x9. Works for me. Mark H.

I think it's the exception rather than the norm. But something to keep in mind.

You could use one of those chain fingers to help prevent it.

@ Pilot: no worries. The PITA factor getting it from here to there...

@ Taki5: its usually not an issue. Most of the carbon bikes have some sorta 'anti-eff-up-your-chainstay' gizmo either built in or added on. A properly adjusted f. der. won't drop the chain.

Slow day at the ole bike shop. Nice out but yet there's no bidness.
