The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 85 - Is the Red Bull Rampage Too Slopestyle?
I know, it’s insane. I want to try a pair just to see what makes them so expensive. Might have to buy some Carhartt overalls for 1/5 of the price and see how they compare.

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 85 - Is the Red Bull Rampage Too Slopestyle?
@stiingya, in the old days riders didn't know how to throw tricks off big drops, and now they do. Dig through the archives and you'll find old videos of Schley trying to learn how to spin, Gracia pulling a mini-flip, etc... The sport has evolved since those early days - more riders than ever have big bags of tricks. If someone has the skills to flip or spin off a huge drop, what's there to dislike?

@smellycosby, the fact that Flight Attendant makes the suspension adjustments automatically means that the bike spent more time in different modes than it would have with TwinLoc. With Scott's system, I usually end up spending most of my time climbing in the middle "Traction" mode, and then open it up all the way for descents. On the Flight Attendant bike, the fork and shock mode would change multiple times on a climb, especially if there were smoother sections mixed in with chunkier bits. Overall, the FA system requires a little less thinking out on the trail than the TwinLoc system to accomplish similar results.

@Rhymer, I mean, it does say opinion right in the title.

@tgr9, totally. A clip just came through of Semenuk tailwhipping a huge drop - he's already pushing things to the next level this year.

@danielfloyd, yep, he sure did. It didn't really work out that well, though: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/throwback-thursday-russ-morrell-the-rampage-hardtail-rider.html.

Opinion: Freeride is Dead, Long Live Freeride
Remember when the main differentiator between a freeride bike and a DH bike was a single crown fork? I do. I'm also confident that Semenuk will be just fine on a 190mm Zeb. It's not like he's trying to compete on a hardtail...

Pretty much all of them are running their suspension as stiff as possible - if you pump your fork and shock up to the maximum allowable amount and close the rebound damping your bike will be Rampage ready too.
