Cool.

Interesting to read about this 29er business and how light these bikes are. Don't recognise a single rider... Where's Tim Gould and David Baker?!

Going by magazine reviews etc SRAM is ideal for racers as it gets serviced after every race and looked after professionally. Shimano is more durable but that doesn't matter in that world as long as it can last a race.

I feel sorry for the chap on the MBC, it weighs a tonne compared to the others.
