Meekboyz's Carbon Fiber Kids Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@clarky78: I'm not suggesting anyone put their kids on 90's rigid MTBs. That would be incredibly stifling to development. I'm talking about the fact that BMX has produced exceptional mountain bikers. That's not an "argument" or opinion. Modern dirt jump/trail hardtails exist now that better facilitate riding from the BMX/body perspective. These are the probably best type of bike for mountain biking skill/instinct development, and they also work well on BMX tracks, so kids can at least try racing out before committing to a 2nd bike.

Meekboyz's Carbon Fiber Kids Bikes - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@Bunabe: Kids who grew up racing BMX tend to be exceptionally skilled when they get on mountain bikes later in life. This has been proven by them populating the top 20 pro/elite class since the beginning of downhill racing. Now, a kid that grows up on full suspension could still become a great rider, but they will not develop the body instinct that riding rigid teaches. They will always rely on the bike more. They won't reach their full potential. Of course any kid would love to have one of these bikes, and have an incredible amount of fun on them. But what if one of those kids turned out to be really fast, got into racing, became a junior WC racer in his/her teens, but then could never seem to get to the next level of speed required to be near the podium? I say give the kids a chance, give them rigid.

Marco Osborne's Cannondale Jekyll: EWS Bike Check - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@seraph: I up-proped you, old friend. I get it. It could also be an observation, not an instruction, like "Check out this close-ass gap. Shits hella close, yo."

He goes so fast, his faceplate expands from friction against the air. So, much like the shingles on the space shuttle, Marco's stem must have a gap.

Final Results - Lourdes DH World Cup 2017
@winko: If you think the conditions are comparable just because of rain, then you must not be familiar with how drastically different soil compositions can behave when wet. Combined with track design, the different surface makes this a completely different situation, and then there's the wind and fog on top of that. If 2007 Sam Hill was teleported here he wouldn't have done much better than any of the last 5 down.

@hetfield1: You really read a lot into my comment. I didn't cal him an "a-hole", I just said his trashy aesthetic really took over for a while, but I like the more classy, retro direction he's gone in the last few years. You're bringing character into it, not me.
