lol @ "transmission" instead of "drivetrain" on the Peugeot specs

@freeridelover: pretty sure we're well past the line of vanlife going too mainstream.

Agreed! While we wait, I'd recommend TWSnow's Adventuremobile series, some of them get pretty in-depth: https://snowboarding.transworld.net/search/adventuremobiles/

Opinion: Does Downhill Have Nowhere Else to Go?
Exactly. That's exactly what RC is saying. What if the downhill bike had been created in it's own vacuum away from other bicycle technology. It probably wouldn't even be a bicycle. We can toss out the drivetrain point since we're talking about downhill aspects of both sports, but skis/snowboards don't need suspension or brakes because they were originally designed to compensate for the lack of that technology. They are, as RC points out, a much truer extension of the athlete than any bicycle. Ankles/knees/hips are your suspension and you've gotta figure out how to turn those edges into brakes. What if a downhill bike wasn't a bike at all, would DH MTB be further "progressed" than it is now? Guess it wouldn't be called DH Mountain Biking then, which sort of makes this whole conversation a wash anyways.

And shit yeah the avy danger adds its own layer to that doom-filter. FWT is more avy-controlled but there are plenty of pucker-inducing avy close-call clips in big-name ski/snowboard movies to get stressed about.

Couldn't agree more. All these people commenting "oh but you can laugh off a 100-ft drop into a lil' pow stash" like they know what that feels like... And I agree that RC would likely have the exact same doom filter when watching FWT runs if he had more personal touchstones in that realm. I'm a snowboarder first and mountain biker second and the more I get myself into burlier lines and big-mountain territory, the more puckered I get when watching Jones and Rice send their shit from my couch.

Everything You Need to Know About Rocky Mountain's New Instinct and Pipeline
Can't see why everyone's drooling over the looks here. IMO this bike looks pretty uninspired, I prefer last season's Rocky frames. This just looks like a Bronson frame with childish paint schemes, namely the orange... gah it looks worse than Ellsworth's... although the teal/red isn't great either. Only one I half-like is the Pipeline Carbon 70 blue/purple. I'm sure they ride like a dream though! Plus this is coming from the dude who raves over Intense paint schemes, which most people seem to hate. Guess opinions are just that.

If they were to include hi-res/full-size versions, you might never get to see it on your smart phone at all, it would take years for the mobile browser to fetch and load. Text-optimized image compression is much less forgiving than art-optimized image compression. There's 24 images here that your browser has to load before it even gets to the geo-charts. Furthermore, they're probably just taking screenshots of the geo charts to include here, which leads to more compression. Even if they get PDF geo charts directly from the company, they still have to compress them into JPEG form to get them up here.

Also, not sure where you are going with the color blind thing, according the science of color theory, that red and that blue are quite complementary to one another!
