Eliot Jackson Launches Grow Cycling Foundation to Promote Diversity in Cycling
@bman33: Nah dude, one is basing your opinion of someone based on their political beliefs (which someone determines themselves) and the other is based on an inherent characteristic that you cannot change. Believe it or not, a lot of people don't like Trump supporters because of the shit that has come out of the man's mouth.

@matadorCE: I live in the PNW, so I mostly see Tacomas, 4Runners, and Subarus, usually with Patagonia or Backcountry stickers on them. I can certainly see how this is a factor in the south.

@HopeFbn: Yeah, I feel like I blow through the shock quickly and the small bump sensitivity isn't what I would like. My hands always feel thrashed if I spend too much time going through rough terrain at speed. As far as the fork, yeah, just too flexy. I think they should do a 36 on the bike... it certainly deserves it.

@EliotJackson: Rad dude. You are an awesome influence on the sport. Certainly doing for MTB what the Williams brothers are doing for road cycling.

@matadorCE: Yes, but my point is that it isn't necessarily overt (used the wrong word in my original post SMH) racism that is the cause in the modern day, but historical patterns and legacies of racism. Racists are certainly still out there, but I have a hard time believing that is why most minority kids and adults don't participate in the sport.

I don't think that the lack of diversity is so much advert racism as it is decades of housing patterns and wealth inequality. I have never met a MTBer in real life (not on Pinkbike forums) that is racist, but mountain biking is an expensive sport and you need to have access to trails to participate in. Certainly this disadvantages minorities in the US. I am glad that he is specifically addressing this issue through funding. There is also a cultural aspect to it (i.e. you do what your peers do), so having someone like Eliot be a role model is much needed.

@housem8d: I hate the proprietary shock and I don't like the 34 fork. I have the 2019 model, so maybe the 2020 is a lot better. Hate is probably a strong word. I just don't love it.

I sort of hate my Trek Fuel Ex, but the downhill bikes are hot fire.

I'd agree with the $5500 version. Getting carbon wheels and XT is very good at that price point.

@davidccoleman: To be fair, they are a pretty big company. I would be more interested in the number of cracked frames as a proportion of total sales.
