One of the best Dartmoor's international team riders - Tomas Zejda recently visited one of the Czech Downhill tracks in Jested close to Liberec. Tomas is aiming to hit Utah's best lines during this years Red Bull Rampage contest with his brand new Dartmoor Roots Freeride toy. He decided to share some thoughts with us just after putting together his new ride:

"After 13 years of shreddin diffrent hardtails I finally got full suspension bike. Thought it's gonna be different, but after the first run down the hill feeling was absolutely awesome. I spent some time riding it since I got it and still wanna get more. Now it's time for some tricks and find a way to participate in the gnarliest freeride event on the planet - Red Bull Rampage 2015!
It's hard to find spare time for big bike during a slopestyle season, but definitely wanna be one of those universal riders enjoing the whole mountain biking pleasure from the very top to bottom of the peak. If I will get a chance to ride a big bike in off-season then I wanna try to ride some city downhill events and realize filming and shooting some crazy stuff."

 Piece of crap you say. I know that Szymon is not suicidal so if he decided to ride Roots in Rampage he must have been pretty sure about quality of the frame. Suspension design is not groundbreaking but for Rampage it doesn't have to be. This frame is relatively simple and strong enough to take the abuse from big mountain riding so why it's crap? Because you don't like it? For me simplicity is not a problem but I'm very curious about your arguments in that discussion. Do please carry on with exchange of views on this topic, I'm always very happy to learn something new.
