Video: Brandon Semenuk Tailwhips a Huge Drop at Rampage [Updated with Slow Mo Clip]
It's sad to say that Rampage is more of a Mesa Joyride contest. Cam Zink and Kyle Strait taking the biggest lines at this site several years back did not score very well. Although I am complaining, I'll be watching tomorrow and complain on PB after the event.

Alchemy Releases Titanium Hardtail & Gives Arktos a Flip Chip - Sea Otter 2021
Titanium tubing is approximately $60ft. I would estimate there are around 10.5ft of tubing on a bike. ~$630 in tubing (doesn't forming and bending) ~$39 for bottom bracket ~$40 for headtube ~$350 dropout for Rear wheels ~$27 for brake mounts The total comes to $1086 in materials. This does not include the cost for labor with American Joe to weld and fabricate the frame. Joe also needs to have a decent wage for living in Colorado. How would you feel being a welder making $25 per hr? This does not include the bike utilities, property tax, rent/mortgage of the build, tools for the shop, medical for the works, insurance for the workers, HR, Payroll, athlete sponsorship, paying for going to SeaOtter and ect.... So $4,499 sounds like a reasonable price for an American Made bike!

Commencal Launches Mixed-Wheel 2022 Meta SX
@BenTheSwabian: This base bike is mostly geared toward entry-level riders and not more seasoned riders. Over time an entry-level rider will develop a skill set to push the components to failure. But I always found Shimano components to be more durable than SRAM but can agree with your assessment of parts.

Summit Bike Park Re-Opening September 24th
South Tahoe is closed until December if I recall correctly. I feel for the Mom and Pop shops that depends on tourist revenue.
