New Venue, Format Changes For Red Bull Rampage 2016
@T-Bot: I think I know where you're going with that fast and sketchy comment. LOL! But yes... very hard job. No results will please everyone... usually. Every once in a while there's a clear winner. It's usually the rest of the podium that people get pissed about. I just want to see T Mac finish a run. I felt like he got hosed a couple years ago and then this last year he had podium written all over him. The horribly low score on his qualifying run pushed him to add that feature... ultimately crashing out. I think if they didn't have qualifying last year and just took 2 runs... he podiums. But there are some guys that can seriously through down running this year.

New Venue, Format Changes For Red Bull Rampage 2016
T Mac better be number one on the list of "wild cards" every one knows that if his balls weren't so big he woulda been on the podium last year. And this format plays into him way better than the man made retardedness of the last few years. I hope the judging is reviewed as well. I can't stand the way it is right now. You basically all talk to each other and effect the scores. Once you get hyped up and start going back and forth scores rise... so the early guys get screwed. I'm glad you've got riders judging but my suggestion would be that each one judges a discipline and puts their scores down... no talking and cross hyping. Put them in. Combine them. Total score. This is supposed to judge all aspects of big mountain riding and when they hype gets rolling I think too much is focused on 1 thing. If each person has one thing they're looking at then it's more consistent. 1 for tricks. 1 for line choice creativity and difficult. 1 for speed and flow. 1 wild card that just goes off the entire run combine... that should be the guy with the most experience on your panel. Good move on less riders. I like the format change. Qualifying is stupid. If you're there you deserve and equal shot at winning. Getting fucked up on a qualifying run is just insane. But... no matter what you do... the glory of the pink bike comments section will still talk all the crap in the world. Because we know what's best after all.

Kona Honzo CR Trail DL - Review
@markg1150: Last time I looked at that it wasn't offered in a 1x. They offer it that way... but i would like to see if they're going to make any of the updates to like they did to this one. I like a smaller frame... medium... with a longer reach. Always have. But I am gonna see if I can demo one of these or just jack one of the aluminum ones from my co-workers.

@bkm303: That's my guess too. My inseam is short as hell but my arms are long. Think about an ape riding a bike. LOL!

Kona Honzo CR Trail DL - Review
@teamweee: Indeed. But not carbon and it's got slightly different specs. And not offered with the same drive train. If I'm gonna do a full custom build the trans-am is better in my opinion. But it might be the next bike to get the update. Who knows. If it is... I'd be curious.

@mikelevy: I'm looking at the TransAm my self. Great bike. If kona had a 27.5 with the same ideals as this one I'd be interested. But they don't. So TransAm is in the lead right now.
