21 Bikes From Eurobike 2016
@VTwintips: I've got one of the Zerode G1 DH bikes, and need to disagree. I've been riding it for 3-4 years now and so far the only problem has been the plastic BB guard has interacted a few too many times with rocks. That and the frame is too small because they only came in one size the first year they made them. Other than that, I've had next to no issues beyond standard bike wear and tear. It's not a perfect bike, but it keeps working.

I agree with the people above. I live in an area where our net speeds are reduced to 0.1Mbps, if we're lucky. The only possible way I can watch video is by leaving it to buffer for a few hours. Even Youtube switched to a model which buffers videos in 30 second segments, so you have to wait an hour to buffer 30 seconds, then watch it for the next bit to start to buffer. Yeah, internet speeds are increasing, but mostly only in cities. Rural areas just get screwed.

The larger ones are pushing 30+ foot. The double ones are a nuisance. You have to be going at near pro speeds to consider clearing them, so anyone less than pro has to roll them, and break their speed and flow. I really think they should change the larger doubles there into a triple or quad for the crapper riders, while still allowing fast people to jump the whole thing.

Hit the first rockgardens after the boardwalks at the top and fly off into the heather. That transition from wood to big rocks always bounces me off in a random direction.

Even dedicated GPS units are kind of crap. The consumer Garmin ones seem to struggle with accuracy under 25ft. On the Fort William DH, mines regularly only accurate to 70ft. Now imagine condensing that into a camera. It's going to be awful as an integrated unit. Closest would be film and GPS at the same time and then sync them, which is what I've been working on for a while.

That looks vaguely familiar, but I can't quite place it.
