Red Bull Rampage 2014: Wil White
Yes, he rides for Morpheus, but it's still a Darkside. Well, I ride Banshees, so I recognise them pretty easy.

It's a Banshee Darkside isn't it? You could build that up way lighter, so I guess 30Pounds is realistic!

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Service Your Suspension Fork?
I don't know how often I service a fork, it depends on how it feels. I service my Boxxer at least before every race and after every hard weekend of riding. But I cut out most of the seals and try and trick a lot with different types of oil etc. My Pike is completely standart and still feels great after quite a few hours of riding. But I'll service it at least before and after the winter!

The Rise Of Enduro - Movie Trailer
you're right, didn't understand the beginning of the sentence. I still think he's wrong, I don't like that "true mountainbiking" phrase and I still get pissed about that constant whining of how great Enduro is!

The Rise Of Enduro - Movie Trailer
What Fred Glo said, was the stupidest thing ever! If you're not a true mountainbiker because you ride downhill, then f*ck true mountainbiking! What's that even supposed to mean? So are all the people who use skilifts in the winter "not true skiers"? Or false skiers? Or does that only apply to mountainbiking? I'm beginning to be really pissed off by all these Enduro guys who have to state their opinion about Enduro being the best and only mountainbike discipline ever all the time and every time a camera points at their face! I see myself as a downhill rider, but I spend most of my time on my Enduro/All Mountain bike, because I don't have any lift accessed trails here. I even went on a two week Enduro holiday in the swiss alps and did a few Enduro races. But I just see Enduro as another discipline that's fun to do. If I had a choice I'ld go downhill riding more frequently, but I don't have the urge to rub that into everyones face and declare dh as the only discipline worth doing and as true mountainbiking because... idk... it's the most intense or some other reason! I like Downhill and also Enduro and sometimes a bit of Cross Country but I would never make anyone feel bad about preferring another discipline!

pm148 is right, it's not about the strength of the hub or axle itself. It's about the overall strength of the wheel, because the spokes are wider in the middle, the wheel will be stiffer and will be able to withstand stronger hits from the side. Basically the same reason the Egyptians build pyramids instead of lean towers ^^

Video: Home Soil
nah, I think raw videos can be great, but they are way overhyped right now. I haven't seen a really good one since Vital made theirs about the 2013 Worldcup DH season. I think the music worked for this video, because it was short and intense, so it kinda set the mood!

Video: First Look at the 2015 Specialized Demo
Wouldn't it make more sense to put the seattube on the non-drive-side? It shouldn't matter for the pedalling forces, as you are standing up anyway, but the bike is already heavier on the right side, because of the drive train. Not sure if any of what I said matters or makes sense, I'ld just like to know why they put it on that side.

Why would they need to be long??? As long as it's challenging, it's alright. I mean, 1min would probably be a bit short, but Windham was just about 2min I think, but riders were still wasted after their run, because it was gnarly and they had to put all their power down.
