More Bikes and Oddities from the Eurobike Outdoor Demo 2014
Always good to see new things, but that Crank Brothers tool looks like you will lose half of it after you have to break it out on the trail, and that Bergamont looks like the original Wilson

2014 Summer Season At Retallack
40 million is the number of people who participate in the sport annually according to IMBA. Im in my mid 20's also, and I know tons of riders our age, and even more that older. I worked in Downieville for a few years, and we would see 200-300 riders on an average weekend, with most of them in their mid 30's to early 40's, and mainly from the Bay Area. Also, seeing the amount of riders in Utah and Colorado is mind blowing, I dont think 40 million is that unreasonable for the whole US.

2014 Summer Season At Retallack
I dont have any info on anything about the lodge, but in terms of the demographic, there is definitely people who will pay that kind of money. I work in outdoor industry, as a guide and educator, including the heli industry in Alaska and get to see that side of the industry. While your group of friends may not be able to afford this kind of stuff, there is a huge demographic of people out there that can. There are nearly 40 million mountain bikers in the US alone, thats a huge number. Not everyone who is passionate about what they do are low income or considered "dirt bags", the fact is a lot of them make a good living, have families, etc... and get to ride their bikes when they can. It costs around a grand a day to go heli skiing and that usually does not include food or lodging, so seeing what you get for $1600 seems pretty reasonable in the grand scheme of things.
