So I hate to detract from the awesomeness that is this photo, because it really does a great job of portraying the scale and ruggedness of Rampage, but this photo has been in homepage articles quite a few times this week. With so many awesome pictures of mountain bikes being taken every day, can we get one not all of us have seen?

Is This the Steepest Rampage Line Ever? - Video
I think that the concern is that riders who have big chutes like this in their lines typically don't do as well because they lose a lot of elevation when they descend 200ft in 2 seconds, instead of 5-6 trick jumps. In the past judges have favored a greater number of "medium" features instead of a few big features, but judging is always difficult to predict so I hope things go well for these guys!

Watch Bearclaw Training for Rampage on his Snow MX Bike
But at least nobody's pretending that it's a mountain bike, and should have the same access as a mountain bike. It's a completely different animal and it's rad!

August 2017 - Good Month or Bad Month?
I've grown up riding at Bootleg and I enjoy it more than any place I've ever ridden. It's definitely a different style than Whistler, Reno, or any other place for that matter, but it's a sweet place to ride regardless.

Mountain Bikers Help Save Original Red Bull Rampage Site
@Dirtylegs91: Yeah, the roads are a big deal too. It's just my hope that the community would rise up against a solar or wind farm in the same manner. Those destroy a lot more land than oil drilling does.

Mountain Bikers Help Save Original Red Bull Rampage Site
Has anyone here ever seen an oil well? They take up about the same amount of space as a decent landing ramp. I'm not saying that I'm supportive of drilling on the site, but we can't say in good faith that drilling would destroy any ecological value any more than biking it would. The real bummer would be that there are a ton of fun features there that us mere mortals CAN ride, and it's fun, but there's all sorts of riding just like it nearby as well.

I love how not a single one of these pictures came from the original rampage site.

Top 3 Value Products In a Crowd of Pricey Parts? Sea Otter 2017
@mate1998: 8k is a pretty decent trials bike. The very best that money can buy are $10,500, and that will last you a lot longer than a mountain bike. My trials bike is from 2001 (much less that 10k), and it's still a really nice bike. There are people competing on bikes from the early 1990's and still do well. When was the last time you saw a serious MTB competitor with a bike more than 5 years old? I'm not saying that trials is cheaper (although maintenance isn't that much more expensive), but it is insane how expensive mountain biking has become.

So correct me if I'm wrong: both shocks have a rack on them, and the red and blue pinions are connected to each other. This compresses the left shock at a greater rate than the right shock is compressed, and the gyro keeps transitions smooth, right? It seems clever enough, but I'm not sure what it accomplishes or if its advantages are more important than keeping things light and simple. It also seems like play in the gears would be a significant issue.

BREW Nitro Shox - Sea Otter 2016
@theman554: Oh, I definitely recognize that. I'm also a pilot, and the suspension definitely makes a difference. Look up a "Just SuperStol" for reference. No suspension will save a botched landing, but it's a lot easier to fake it with oleos as compared to a spring gear.
