I am a wilderness therapy counsellor/guide. I am also a dad and husband and as a result I spend more time thinking about riding than actually doing it.

Revelstoke's Mt Cartier Helidrop - Part 3
Dude lower your dosage, or increase it. What ever cools you jets. Rampag won't get here any sooner if PB stops covering other stuff.

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Backflips, Stompers and Case Studies
But to what limit? Skill only keeps you safe to a certain point. these guys are the best, but as you say, they are human.

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Backflips, Stompers and Case Studies
http://www.redbull.com/en/bike/stories/1331663330782/crankworx-les-deux-alpes-2014-track-preview Apparently stuff is getting big enough to scare pros, even as red bull downplays it. And how many times did Lacondeguy run up on that drop before getting the nerve to go for it? 10? And yet I won't stop watching until some one gets seriously mangled.

I figured he was joking, seeing as how he has a pretty sweet bike.

Red Bull Rampage 2014: Backflips, Stompers and Case Studies
I wonder if this is too big. Obviously I don't know from experience, but is a 70ft backflip require more skill than a 30ft, or is it just more dangerous? I mean yeah, nerve counts for something, but there is a fine line between nerve and stupidity. If these guys are scared to do it maybe they shouldn't. After all, is bigger always better? I don't want this to just be a disgusting freak show of people watching for crashes. I'd rather see incredible skill, and not sit there wondering if some kid is going to get orphaned today. . .

Opinion: Incremental Steps and Boring Times
I was looking at a few reviews. The geo has too much weight on the front wheel, at least on the mongoose beast. That can be a big problem on slick terrain. Also the threaded headset on the beast is a really dumb mistake, even for a big box bike. The Dolomite is the next step up for $50 more and it had a more modern build. I still am not sure about the bb width or geo on it, but at least it is upgradeable

I am tempted to get a wally world (Walmart) fatty and swap out tires, bars and cranks. Maybe I should go in and measure the geo and post it up for comparison to more expensive rigs.
