Pinkbike Poll: Are Trails Becoming Too Manicured?
There is an obvious answer to all of this, at least its obvious to me. Both are equally important. Compare it to skiing / snowboarding, Would anyone ever question the park being "over groomed," No. Grooming the back country is well..retarded, so my point is that both have their own identity. Whistler Bike park is the perfect example, trails are specifically distinguished as Flow and Tech. In my opinion there is a lot more challenging tech trails at Whislter than flow. It would be nice to have a top to bottom trail that was a double black flow jump trail. I'm not going to lie, I like being in the Air, and the longer the better. Do I prefer it over wet roots and deadly rock gardens, yes, I also suck in the tight steep stuff but that's ok with me. I only ride to have fun, i don't race, and right now i don't think risking life or limb in Goat's Gully is worth it. Ride the trails you like and lets others have their fun.

Redalp Downhill Bikes 2012
honestly, i really don't mind it. Sure it's different, admittedly not the sexiest bike. I do believe form should follow function, and this may be the case here.
