Opinion - It Should Be Hard, Shouldn't it?
Should a beginner really be riding gravity inspired trails first? Learning all of the basics climbing and riding all of the up and down trails on your trail bike should be the first thing any rider does, not trying to smash berms on a DH bike. If you have a buddy that thinks riding at a park is the first thing you should ride because you don't have to do all that stupid climbing... you have an asshole friend that is going to get you hurt. Mike Levy hit it on the head. Everything comes down to the almighty dollar.

Video: Avid Chasing Trail - Kenny Smith
I have Saint's on my Demo, and Avid's on everything else I ride. If.."a lot of maintenance" is a brake bleed (Avids need one before you can ever ride them) then I guess they do require a lot of maintenance. Quit whining and use what you like. No big deal. Ride on!

The Argument For Short Travel Bikes - Opinion
Riding the different disciplines of mountain biking improves the others. Yes, you should start with the basics, learning balance, stopping, bail-out, turning, climbing techniques first before you jump onto a full DH rig. I started out on a hard tail, worked my way up to a Demo. Love my Demo by the way! But spending a couple of days in the bike park you learn those high speed techniques, cornering, jumping, and gravity based techniques you don't get on your average trail ride. Your average trail ride you maybe get 10 to 20 min of pointing your bike down rather than climbing, so riding a DH rig is a great learning experience in the grand scheme of things. Now, I have taken those skills from my time in the bike park and applied them to riding my '11 Stumpy Evo. I tell you what, I have been able to find killer lines, push the bike to its limits and have had some fantastic rides. Any type of riding will aid in improving another. But what I see is a lot of people do not want to climb, or do any sort of "work" while on a bike ride. (Yes I do understand that cranking out DH runs is hard work...I do it too) And for those folks, too bad for you! You are missing out on so may great adventures.
