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.

video
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?

What do you mean? It's the perfect pedal for my Brooklyn Machine Works w/skull stem and 24" Gazzos!

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.

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."

Marco Osborne's Cannondale Jekyll: EWS Bike Check - Crankworx Whistler 2017
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.
