Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
When I was a kid my mum had to go to a bike shop and but me a new front skewer because mine got stolen from my bike at school. I was gutted when she gave it me because it was really heavy compared to the original one. She couldn't understand it, she thought it was expensive so surely it would be heavy?! More money = more weight. Maybe she thought it was made of silver or something! So with that logic of course more travel costs more money.

Don't Get Hung Up On the Numbers - Opinion
@PhotoCal: I'd argue with enough skill you could ride anything on a hardtail, but just because you could doesn't mean you should..! Hardtails are more tiring over long distances over tougher terrain, you don't need to constantly hover over the seat, they are also slower the sus over anything remotely downwards pointing and rough. Sure you could do it but why. The thing I never got and never will is the even MotoGp bikes have full suspension. They are designed to race on the smoothest surfaces available yet they are suspended. You don't see hardtail MotoX bikes do you. Yet when it come to mountain bikes that need more effort to ride and you would think benefit from energy saving suspension the most, people want to act all tough and ride hardtails or rigid. I just don't get it.

Warner's POV - Red Bull Foxhunt 2016
@makdthed: if you use the term 'beat' then it's competitive, i.e. race.

Warner's POV - Red Bull Foxhunt 2016
That's a race? Joke. If your going to have a mass start it needs to be long enough to do something about making places. That was infuriating. And what was the point of the first half? Walking!? For how long who knows! Dumb. Least the multiple line choice points looked fun.

Not2Bad Free Online Premiere - Thanks for Tuning In
Agreed. This film was almost entirely about dirt jumps with Semenuk, Rheeder, and RDog. I don't suppose the Athertons got involved much beyond the 1 Segment. Should have been much more trail/dh riding. Enjoyed it, but tbh enjoyed the outtakes as much as the repetitive dirt jumping.

Finals Favorites - Red Bull Rampage 2016
@ldhbaker: Because the point of Rampage is that anyone can take the win. If this is the case why even invite no slopstyle/big mountain riders? If you can't win you risk everything for nothing. At least they get the 5k appearance fee this year ( which still wouldn't cover the cost of the trip for one let alone 3 people, and doesn't cover the risk factor). They also make a poin of saying the points don't come from any particular category so they should be able to win by not doing every category of riding style.

Just the Tip, Finals - Red Bull Rampage 2016
Why the music in the background? Totally useless and pointless and in the way of the commentating. Had to strain to hear almost everything said.

Robot Bike Co R160 Custom - Review
Gonna head straight for the Neg's by saying that is ugly as f###. Along with the Pole and Nicolai. Maybe I just don't like the look of slack bikes that look Josh Bender just did one of his signature huck to stack on it...!
