Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
Here's the solution. Instead of buying a $6k enduro bike, buy a used dh and trail bike for less than that. I will never justify paying $6k for a bike that basically does what most $2k bikes do but with carbon parts...

Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
I really like this idea. The lower the price the better!

Opinion: Save the DH Bike?
I see a lot of posts agreeing with this article, and many of them are saying that they have gotten older and found it in their better interest to buy an enduro bike and sell the DH rig. I can understand this obviously as many have stated that after years of DH riding enduro/trail riding is less harmful on the body. Also it is a better all arounder because of bike parks becoming more about smooth flow while you can still take that same bike out on a local trail. I feel like, though, that the younger riders are being canceled out a bit. There is still plenty of people who haven't been riding DH for years who enjoy ripping up steep trails and bike parks on DH rigs. The DH bike still has a place because there still will always remain the group who wants to go bigger and ride harder than most want to. It's a very purpose built heavy hitting rig and still good fun to ride at the bike park. It makes much more sense depending on your location which bike you buy. It's not like they can make Red Bull Rampage bigger and better on enduro bikes so I really don't see DH bikes dying off, just scaling down a bit.

Dainese Rider Support Program 2017
They are looking for growing athletes that could really be on top a podium or in a magazine one day. They will have a good selection of people to sort through and get plenty of advertisement out of it. In marketing sometimes you take a short term loss for long term gain.

Ask Pinkbike: Carbon or Aluminum, Norco Sight or Optic?
Carbon is great if you can afford it, but for the price i'll stick to alum bikes. Been riding a 2009 marin mount vision and have beat the hell out of it, so far i've put a golfball sized dent in the chainstay and the bike is still going strong.

Well if this is really a revival of Love Tires from the 2000's then 26" better be right around the corner.
