I'm 20 years old and I love to bike and run track. I recently started racing cyclocross at Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO so I'm fit like a lemur!

I bought this bike to race the Pro GRT in Durango, but they never built the trail due to fires and the race was cancelled. I have ridden the bike all of 12 times on flow trails, no proper DH. I was really excited for the Pro GRT and bought this as my first bike in 5 years, but with the fires and work I hardly got to ride it. The bike is awesome and so easy to ride fast, the grip while cornering is unbelievable. It dispels any hesitation I had in long bikes not being able to turn, it's just so so good!

Ask Pinkbike: Helmet Fit, Tire Picks & Teaching Teens
If you are riding proper DH descents (not regular trail riding) and get 8-12 laps in a day you will be pushing more than 20,000ft (6000m) of descending with very hard and extended braking. For a three day weekend in the alps it would not be unreasonable to get 70,000ft+ of vertical. Your tires' edges will no longer be sharp enough to maintain the grip they are meant to. However the terrain you are riding has a huge effect on wear, somewhere like Bootleg Canyon is going to go through tires like soft butter while the "loamy" trails of BC and Washington won't do much at all. 70,000ft+ of Morzine descending is going to wear your tires a lot more than a couple months of normal trail riding.

Pinkbike Poll: What's the Most You'd Spend on a Mountain Bike?
The Bro Brah regular shop employees are at max making 30K a year. The discounts they receive for an entire bike are close to 45% from retail, meaning their $7000 bike costs $4500, saving them $2500 + all the eaar and tear replacement parts bringing their total savings a little over the $3000 mark by the end of the year (assuming they are keeping their tire treads at racing wear levels). Most of us not working at shops (that are over the age of 25) I would hope are making more than $40000/yr so you are still, on the whole, far better off. I know most shop employees are not putting anything away into savings and simply spend all the money they make in a given year towards rent, bikes, beer, and travel. As far as your future goes, you are going to be much more stable. I recently spent over $7000 for a bike after not owning one for several years, but I was able to get parts at wholesale by agreeing to work several weekends this summer for my buddy who owns a local shop. I also got a second job delivering pizza to more or less offset the price. I now just need to figure out how to take enough days off to do all the races around me this year!

Watch the Winning Runs - Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
@MJ4LIFERIDER The UCI has a rule (4.3.003) that states if you are 100% slower than the winners time you are given a DNF, it looked like Brook was able to ride down the rest of the hill but was well over 5 minutes by the time he crossed the line.

Qualifying Results: Lošinj DH World Cup 2018
Because of UCI's lame new rules, Aaron Gwin will be the last down the hill and Brook will be the 19th from last down the hill (a few top twenty guys from last year are not racing).

Yeti's New SB100 Doesn't Fit The Mold - First Look
Because they would need to increase the reach another inch or more and large manufacturers are scared of going much over 500mm. I have a 38.5" inseam and bikes with even a 75.5* have me way off the (too short) backend, especially on the steep uphills behind my house.
