I like bikes. A LOT. Especially when I ride them.

I'm not knocking the frame materials, shock, or any other of the new technologies they are employing in this... it's all cutting edge, and I'm sure, awesome. I just don't understand sticking with a very old suspension design that I'm not a big fan of. I'm not a fan, because I've owned numerous Specialized bikes (including a 2010 Demo) and just don't like the ride compared to any VPP or DW-Link bike.

Exactly. Horst-link FSR design, same as the original FSR bikes of yore, and every Intense M1 in the late 90's. Just better geo, shock, and frame materials, but still the same suspension design. I'll take VPP or DW-Link every time, thanks.

Wow, a Horst-link FSR bike?! How cutting edge! Looks pretty much like a 1999 Intense M1...Pfffft, you can only polish a turd so many times before it's time to come up with a better turd.

Bitches Brew - Going Mainstream Can Make or Break an Emerging Sport
I couldn't agree more with the "exclusiveness" you mentioned. I have found myself riding more and more with newcomers to the sport (relative to my 18 years mountain biking) or other people I never rode with because I was too busy riding with the "cool kids"... in our matching TLD kits, top-end parts, and general disregard for anyone not on certain brands (or really, anyone on a Kona). I am so SICK of the "holier than thou" attitudes from people I spent countless hours riding with that I can hardly be around them anymore. On a personal level they will always be my friends, but on the trail, I just can't take it. I hate that I had that attitude, and that part of me still gets pulled into the same mentality from time to time. But every time I'm out riding with guys who have never been on "this" trail, are stoked their first long-travel trail bike, or with a couple of my long-time buds that can be self-depreciating about ourselves, I have exponentially more fun. I don't want to see our sport become truly mainstream, but I can't deny I love seeing people discover how awesome mountain biking (as a sport and lifestyle) really is.

You really need to ride Bernard Peak, about 30-40 min north of CDA. It's amazing. That, and Caribou Ridge/Trail 257.
