Not a racer but love to hit up the knarliest trails...rock gardens, roots, jumps you name it. Sure i can ride a lighter bike but love the confidence of riding a burly bike. Sort of a freerider?

17 inch moto wheels? Oh great, yet another hub and wheel standard...

Titanium is not an inherently expensive material. It's the machining that makes it more expensive. It's a hard material to weld (something about it being prone to oxidation near or at it's melting point)

I would rather spend my money on a normal hardtail and put a rohloff hub on the rear end. At least it's still a normal bike if I change my mind on the whole.gearbox thing. And it would be half the price.

Pinkbike Poll: Do You Listen to Music While Riding?
I bought a hope wheelset intentionally for the loud hub noise...just to drown it out with ear buds that blare industrial metal music. Then I try awkwardly to greet others as I pass by them.

Where's the New XTR? 8 Questions With Nick Murdick, Shimano MTB Product Manager
I still use a front mech on my xc bike and road bike. I like the extra range for those huge mountain climbs.

Loris and Luca's Santa Cruz V10 29ers - Val di Sole DH World Cup 2018
I don't see the big deal about the 8 speed cassette. As far as I know most pros use that setup because they tend to double shift a full road cassette. I personally use a 6 speed 14-28 on my d.h. sled.
