Bike vs Bike: Connor Fearon's 2007 Kona Stab Deluxe vs 2020 Operator
@Beyond-The-Tape: I have yet to crack any other bikes. I used to ride an old kona stinky and that thing was bulletproof and so is that stab, but the operator frame just seemed weak. I noticed a decent number of people with mismatched frame decals when I was riding. Kona does lifetime warranty on all their aluminum frames but only a 3 year warranty on their carbon frames....

Bike vs Bike: Connor Fearon's 2007 Kona Stab Deluxe vs 2020 Operator
I don’t know if the Kona operator frames have been improved but I managed to crack an aluminum 2012 kona operator frame(so did a buddy of mine) and then about 2 season later managed to crack a the carbon 2014 operator warranty frame. Watch out for cracks under the head tube and honestly I’d stay away from the bike!

Pinkbike Poll: Which Alternative Suspension Manufacturer Has the Best Chance of Challenging RockShox and Fox's OE Dominance?
Yep BOS support is garbage. Had to beg them to send seals for the idylee DH fork to Whistler, they manage to send seals that are too small somehow (as they only have few forks on offer anyways). Takes 2 weeks for them to send the correct size and thankfully they did; because they are taking a 14 day vacation in the middle of the summer season.... The fork and shock were stock on a rocky mountain maiden, which makes rocky mtn look bad as a Canadian company they stocked a bike with parts that cant be serviced in Canada.

Video: Brendan Fairclough's Rampage POV
@wiscobiker: While I haven't been to rampage, I know that you cannot send a 40ft drop into a rock garden. But what I mean is that every feature seems to be perfectly manicured. At 0:39 fairclough sends it off the rock drop and the drop take off isnt perfectly flat and made into slopestyle like step down drop, its just the edge of the rock and he sends it off and thats what rampage is. Its making the best of what you have, not making every feature into the best most perfect bike park style feature.

Video: Brendan Fairclough's Rampage POV
While all the riders had gnarly lines and crazy tricks. A lot of the rampage lines made me think, damn those drops/jumps is way too big for me.. But Brendog's line made me think, DAMN that line has drop/jumps that are too big for me AND technical sections that are too gnarly for me. That's what I love about rampage the mixture of technical riding with big jump features. Rampage seems to have morphed more into a FEST style comp where the jumps are huge and gnarly but mostly the track is mostly "smooth".

@bizutch: yea dude it’s getting very monetized I feel, only a matter of time that it requires a ticket to event get up the hill at all to watch...I’m up for the whole summer pretty much so I avoid the park too, as the lines are long and the trails full of people riding the trails for the first time and they get wrecked by the races.

Video: The Last Time You'll See This Joyride Course? - Inside The Tape
I agree, remember a few years back they had a loop on the course even and loads of line choices that adds variety and makes the course fun to watch! Also get shrink the $130 dollar vip sections that take up loads of space and aren’t even full and the bloody bag searches lol

Anyone else that saw the even live think it’s starting to loose the true atmosphere of the event? Bag checks like a night club, huge vip section taking up so much space that’s not even full, crowds pushed into smaller areas and the crowd didn’t seem as as rowdy and hype as previous years?
