@mattwragg: I think this one is pretty obvious and not a big deal. It's a neat image on a MTB website, not a submission for some kind of prestigious award. No need to put on airs about the purity of photography. The only thing consumers of MTB, BMX, Skateboarding, and Snowboarding media would be concerned with is if a photo is manipulated in some way that alters the rider, the rider's position relative to the terrain, or the scale of the terrain.

The Rise Barcelona Days: Featuring Thomas Genon - Video
@oevets4130: BMX is a style of riding, not a bike. And there have been 26" wheel BMX bikes, and even suspension since the 70's. It's just marketing that's tricked you into thinking this is a separate activity in order to sell you more expensive bikes.

Is This the Steepest Rampage Line Ever? - Video
So you must sleep in a grassy field, because you would never want to disturb the ground by building a house. You also obviously boycott roads, because they tear through hillsides to build them. Wait, how are you on the internet right now? Did you make a windmill powered computer out of fallen twigs?

Cedric Gracia Questions if Something is Wrong with Rampage - Video
I think in this case the word "natural" is a shorthand for the line that divides Slopestyle contests from Rampage. No need to get hung up on semantics. That line is pretty clearly defined by modifying the existing terrain with shovels and rakes vs. bringing in outside materials and constructing features. That may be difficult to put into written rules, but rider/builders know what the difference is, and they should be the ones to decide what happens as a group on site.

I love this video, but I'm seeing something weird going on with the framerate. It's especially noticeable in the aerial shots, the trees look like they're skipping across the screen, but it is in some hand held shots as well where the riders look like they're blinking in and out of existence. Looks the same on the Vimeo version. Is this just on my computer, or is anyone else seeing this? I'm only asking because I like the video so much, I'd like to see the best version of it possible. Maybe a re-upload if the original is smoother?

24 Custom Painted DH Bikes at Cairns World Champs 2017
Yea, but how much sicker would Tahnee's bike look with polished or chrome rims, or cranks? In fact, I didn't see any custom finish components apart from stickers. Everything is in that "mass production black" finish that's somewhere in between flat and gloss, that everything comes in these days. Remember when high end components used to actually stand out because they were polished/chrome, or colored, or a smooth flat black, or high gloss black? This cost saving wishy washy black has become boring, I want high end to look like high end again.
