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.

Who be the Judge?
Judging ain't easy, just ask anyone who has been one. For the athletes, girlfriends, or anyone else for a matter of fact, just think how good you got it. You are riding a bike in a contest, for work... well maybe not everyone, but some. Others just for FUN!!! Just think of this, it could always be worse. You could be stuck doing a tour in Afghanistan.
