Opinion: Road Trip
I guess I should specifie that said race would have to be on a fresh coarse nobody had ridden. Or new trail entirely.

Opinion: Road Trip
This reminds me of a concept I had as a child. The idea was a race were nobody got to practice or preride. I always thought that it would be the best way of determining who was the best all around rider, same way some of the best riders can go faster than you on a night ride.

Think This Image Is Fake? Mythbusters with Matt Hunter
He's right it's a more exaggerated movement as well. Also has no one ever seen someone corner like that on concrete.

Not to be rude but this comment brings back a past comment I made on pinkbike staff not editing their stuff I think you meant transform you into not to, I make this comment to point out again how little things like grammar and editing are important to our image in the outside world. I do agree the best shot should get the slot pro or not

Rider Perspective: Mike Hopkins on Rampage
That's exactly what I was thinking. If a nfl player hurts himself on the field they don't send the bill to the stadium or event planners. If your dealing in a danger filled arena you should have some health insurance. When I planned on being a pro rider as a kid and found out how little pros made I figured the cost of everything including medical into plans. After breaking some bones and paying the price for not having insurance I when't and got some I also don't make a lot of money so it was a hard choice. Just food for thought

Markus Pekoll's 27.5" Mondraker Summum
Not too agree with waki but your statement is in my opinion untrue it isn't just pressure it's also the profile of the tire As well as it's overall width. The rim width changes the profile of the tire if you put a max is holly roller on a 24mm rim vs a 32mm rim the profile and type of grip change, also deeper profile rims thickness in tube, and yes size of wheel as well.

Markus Pekoll's 27.5" Mondraker Summum
I offer this challenge to you waki take the table your using for reference put a cinder block or other heavy Item on the edge of the table stand in front of it like on a bike pick up the table an inch off the ground from a stretched out position then move two to four inches closer and examine the effect on back abdominal muscles and your arm is it more difficult to lift or move I'm referring to leverage in this challange, also how many bikes/ setups in different styles have you tried?

I disagree with the first part depending on the trail and bike setup using a short front end uses muscles in your arms that are stronger than when you are stretched out using a longer setup. This position also causes you to stretch forward using back muscles and in some body types putting more pressure on your chest and therefore lungs this can be easily seen riding a road bike verses a downhill bike. In your second part your right, it is more stable length wise but I would argue width wise as in side to side it's less stable in that a good rider can drift without breaking to rebalance In case of a fall. And in the last while bar rise and angle is important your forgetting about stem angle or bb hight in relation to overall bar hight and finally stem stack hight. We've argued once before long ago about something similar.
