Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Change About Red Bull Rampage?
I would make the following changes. - Change the venue every year. It doesnt have to be another country. Just enough so riders cant use any of the prior years build work - Stop riders sharing a line for 2 reasons. Firstly to stop them building a groomed line. Secondly I would make the event about the line they choose. I would accept a small proportion of shared lines where the topography meant it funnelled riders into common areas. - Limit dig time and dig crews to reduce the ability to build stuff To me its supposed to be about crazy lines and just enough spade work to make them do able, not trickable.

Pinkbike Poll: What Would You Change About Red Bull Rampage?
@nzstormer: I think some of the tricks are coming because several riders are teaming up to build the same line. Thats fine, but if you want to win you have to do more tricks to differentiate yourself from the other riders on the same line. Thats a problem for me as it becomes about the tricks

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@foggnm: I dont like any of them. They are always too short for me. I have never understood why given their sponsored riders are all giants.

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@WAKIdesigns: I disagree about intense. They still have their version of VPP and a distinct look. I agree its more watered down and not as distinctive as it used to be,

@daddydonuts: Mojo's. The point I am making is that Santa Cruz are now part of a huge conglomerate and so cannot be called boutique. They are large batch pile them high manufactured. Not small production runs like the brands mentioned.

@WAKIdesigns: I would still include intense in the special camp as they are still a small independent company doing their own thing.

@CanBLine: sc are part of one of the biggest bike companies in the world. Pon holdings. Thier frames are made in the same Taiwanese factories as all the other mass produced brands. Nothing wrong with this just let's not pretend they are special like they were pre carbon and web they were an independent company
