Snow Summit Bike Park Opens Early
I'm well aware of the park's history, but I still think it was a move to specifically exclude downhillers by discriminating against the bikes they ride and not for any "rational" reason that DH bikes are more dangerous. Sure, you can achieve slightly higher speeds on a DH bike in rough terrain, but downhillers tend to wear more protective gear and the bikes achieve more control. In the end I think it's a wash as far as risk. Riding bikes at a resort with features and nothing but hours of downhill trails is risky. What bike it's done on has practically nothing to do with it. It was a boner, uniformed, discriminatory move to keep their insurance company happy.

I still blows my mind when I'm reminded that they discriminated against a style of bike. Like you can't go fast and hurt yourself on an all mountain rig? Heck, at a lift serviced resort, you're LESS likely to get hurt on a DH bike...better brakes, better traction, more control. Glad they came to their senses.

Too bad Peaty won't actually be at Sea Otter for the premiere because of the first round of the World Cup.

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
@ PedroVieira Steve (owner/designer of SWD) was a big admirer of Orange's design and it definitely shows in the 216. I'm not a huge fan of the color either (though it's unique). This was a factory team frame/color and only a few were built for the race team in late 2007/early 2008 just before Steve passed away....kinda seems wrong to paint it until I really have too.

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
@NickBit I ride an SWD Racing. They were a small DH frame maker here in Northern California until 2008 when the owner sadly passed away. His bikes will live on forever though. I ride a 216dh and my wife rides a Crazy 8. Incredible bikes that have a great racing legacy as well. Here's mine: http://www.pinkbike.com/photo/10328897/

Pinkbike Poll: If Cost Were No Object...
I know I'm in a massive minority, but having ridden a steel DH bike for years, I'm a huge fan of the material. It dampens vibrations, is quiet, tough, repairable, and easily workable by the small scale builder in his garage. As nice as all the wonder materials are, there is something really special about the way you can relate to good ol' chromoly.
