you'll be fine, i rode on my 130mm fork last year and was pretty brutal but i maybe went like 5 times, have upgraded to a 160mm better quality fork and hoping that is better this year but you should be fine on a pike
yea i know the fork will be fine its just the brakes and frame. What bikes do they rent out?

your frame and brakes will be fine there but you'd have more fun on a rental, they rent out flatlines

Only downside to renting is the cost for a day is I think now $85 someone correct me if I'm wrong, I use my own bike cause I can't afford to dish out that much each time I go to ride but hey I'm just a teen so it may be different for you haha

what year flatline, are they the pro or world cup? Yea it is kinda expensive so might only do that once, but i think it would be worth it for the hole day

last years were 2009 I'm assuming they're using them again as they usually use the same bikes a couple years...not sure on the other one though

that would be sweet to see the race or the world cup mixed in.
i think RM carried over there older style frame for 1 model though that it alot like there current rental bikes..maybe we will see 1 or 2 of them added?

Yea there are some sick deals on the used rentals. Sure they have been used a ton, but they have also been maintained by "professionals".

Well, more or less.

I saw blue mountain displayed a 2010 at the bike show. If they do run them, will they have the flatline world cups? thats worth the 85 buks to rent imo, but I have my own...

The guys at the booth said it was for "display only".
