@tunafeesh: yup, when you've got no facts/stats to back up your position, resort to name calling...classic lefty/wokie move.

How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@manuelandphillipe: I hear you but... men will always be faster, go bigger and go gnarlier. The fastest women's time in most events is usually not even as fast as the way junior boys times (true for cycling, track, swimming etc), and while you can say "women are going bigger in slopestyle all the time" (which is true) when you start with very small tricks you've got a long way to go to reach rampage and crankworx men's level. So sure, if you had all the money in the world you'd support both equally, just because it's fair. But since there are many dollars attached to it, you go with the bigger, faster, gnarlier...just like in pretty much every other sport.

@hamncheez: very true... also, taking into account supply and demand when it comes to sports. For instance, the viewership of the WNBA is abismal when compared to the NBA...so the pay should reflect that. But in other sports like tennis...the viewership is fairly close between men's and women's so the pay is closer. Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcome.

Field Trip: Rocky Mountain's $1,669 Growler Doesn't Hold Back on the Descents
@gtill9000: no doubt I had a TANGE Shockblade on it which I think the elastomer wore out in about 3 months...I had more OTBs doing gnarly east coast rockgardens. I had bar-ends on it I think ended up donating it to the salvation army. It was basically a road bike with bigger tire clearance in geometry...but like you said I must've put 5000 miles on that thing.

I'd like to see a side by side comparison with my 1992 yokota yosemite hardtail's geometry and this one. Why'd it take so long to figure out that long and raked was the way to go?
