It looks so easy! Like he has all the time in the world. It's almost like he's not trying it seems like. Catching pedals way before landing.

Stevie Smith: 1989-2016
My fondest memory of Stevie is from the afterparty at Hafjell in 2013 where we nerded out over moustache wax and twirling techniques. Long live Chainsaw!

15 Downhill Bikes of Gravity Events UK Round 1 Hamsterley
@maianhkha15091981: You mean the ones from days gone by with 300mm travel Super Monsters and headangles that become negative when the fork compress fully? :D

@artistformlyknowasdan: Yes, of course. But saying: "Sufficiently advanced technology is the answer. Sufficiently advanced technology" *Insert poof of pocket sized generated smoke machine smoke made from overheated specially engineered smoke machine oil and silently slipping away through a cleverly disguized trapdoor without explanation* -It doesn't have quite the same panache...

Truth! It's called a Marius-sweater and it's a traditional Norwegian knitting pattern.

First Look: Forestal Reveals New 'Hydra' Downhill & 'Cyon' Trail eMTB Designs
@DoubleCrownAddict: I can agree with 170mm is a bit short to qualify as a proper DH bike, but it's plenty for a lot of shuttleruns if you have a proper DH fork up front. The industry has been there and is there still, but have found that it is little use of doing so. A lot of DH bikes run 190mm as well nowadays even. Going above 200mm is a waste for 99% of riders. There are options still but quite frankly I don't see the point. Suspension setup, kinematics and wheel path has a lot more impact than pure travel. I ride a Intense M16c, which has the option to run 215mm or 241mm. Having tried both a lot back to back, it is obvious that 214mm is superior in all ways. Both faster and more agile. (Yes, I run an air shock and adjust the pressure between settings).

Self-shutteling eDH bikes makes so much sense! Perfect for those who live in an area with great DH tracks, but limited access to shutteling. We just need more to choose from in this category. Not something for me though. I have a DH bike, trail bike and normal eMTB. But if I lived in an area with great downhills in my backyard like Nesbyen, Sogndal or Voss, I'd definitely be tempted to get a eDH bike. To have small batteries to keep the weight down is good as well, because you most likely will be running laps, you could just have a spare battery at the bottom and switch when it runs out. Bring it on!
