The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
This article makes a great point. 98% of us can ride 98% of our local trails on a bike with 98% less travel than Sam Hill. I agree. The issue I have with this article is the author's insistence that we are all trying to hone in every riding skill all of the time. If your only reason for riding is to get better, I feel bad for you. I would hope that everyone is riding their big or little bikes to have a good time. If we are on the trails to enjoy ourselves who gives a rat's ass what bike we are riding. If you aren't having fun on a plush big bike then buy a "smaller" bike. If you have more fun on a "big" bike go ride a big bike. This article is all about countering the populous. No matter when or what the popular trend is, the same people are countering against it. I'm surprised we aren't reading an article on the benefits and joys of using bar-ends! It feels exciting to go against the norm and create a valid and strong argument. I get that. It's such a powerful feeling, but it is a fleeting one. As soon as enough people join your cause it's the norm, and that's no fun to fight for! I ride for fun. Whatever bike is most fun for you, ride it, and quit worrying about how other people are having fun.

Richard Holmes meets the Whistler Mountain Bike Park
What is the point of this article? Will you highlight me if I send in some pics and videos of myself riding, a list of my amazing accomplishments, what I'm studying at the university and my philosophies on life? It's cool that he is living the "dream" and is a decent rider but I don't get why PB thought we wanted to get to know him.
