 Only thing missing was "Let my Ibis do the work!"
Not enough people sending in crashes?
Are we in a crash recession?
Liberal elites are anti crash?
Worldwide conspiracy?
Birds aren't real?

 @rcrocha: Its Big Safety preventing more crash reels. As usual they are ruining the joy of getting mangled while riding your bike.

 "What's your rebound setting?"
0.21 - "Yes"

 That fall has nothing to do with his rebound setting. His ass hit the back tire stopping the wheel.

 followed by that sound at 00:22. I can't determine if it was the bike or the rider.

 You know how a few weeks ago we said that backflip attempts shouldn't count as fails? I think you proved us wrong

 Remember Friday fails whenever Pinkbike or anyone else tries to tell you: “ You don’t need a DH bike…”

These videos show you exactly why you should be on a DH bike, when you’re hitting big gap jumps.

They aren’t crash proof, but they will give you the best chance at riding out a bad landing.

 I have a nice pair of scars on my shin from the last time I thought "doesn't feel quite fast enough but I'm on a DH rig. It'll be fine...". Clapped my suspension, slipped a pedal, gained 12 fresh stitches and a 5" stripe of derma bond. Probably would've broke my ankle on any less of a bike.

 Skill compensation and actually learning how to ride jumps are not the same thing.
When you don’t know how to jump, don’t go out and buy a DH bike, practice with the bike you have on smaller jumps.

 @notthatfast:

While everything you said is correct, my point was more of a “Don’t hit big gap jumps with your regular bike, most people “need” a dh bike for the monster drops and jumps that you regularly see fail on Fridays…

You should always start out with small jumps first…

 @Saidrick:
I don’t think many of the features on here require a DH bike personally. Most trail/enduro bikes are plenty
  • 1 1
 @notthatfast: evidence suggests otherwise.

 @o1inc:
Again, lack of skill and lack of suspension travel are not equal
  • 1 1
 @notthatfast: agreed, but lack of travel exacerbates the results of decisions made in which skill was lacking.
