Opening Day Survey 2021: What People Are Riding at the Whistler Bike Park

Jun 2, 2021 at 14:03
by Sarah Moore  


Slightly later than usual, but still a month before last year, the Whistler Bike Park opened on Monday, May 31. The lift lines were long, but the weather was perfect and the ideal trail conditions made the wait more than worth it. We once again had our eyes out to assess the statistics of the opening day, and to compare them to the previous years.

Flats pedals and 27.5" wheels reigned supreme with a record-breaking 84.21% of riders on flats and 67.36% sporting the smaller wheels. Despite an increase in the number of brands released mullet bikes, we saw just 2.11% of riders rocking a 29er up front and a 27.5" wheel in the back, which is the same percentage of riders that were on 26" bikes.

Trail bikes reigned supreme this year, with the Giant Reign taking top honours ahead of the Norco Range. However, the most popular fork was the RockShox Boxxer, meaning there were still lots of downhill bikes out, with the Norco Aurum, Commencal Furious and Commencal Supreme being the most popular. The second-most popular fork was the RockShox Lyrik with the Fox 36 close on its heels. RockShox were also the most popular rear shock out there with the Super Deluxe followed closely by the Fox DHX2. SRAM were once again the most popular in the braking and drivetrain department with the Codes and GX derailleur.

DT Swiss had a commanding share of the rims on show once again, with Maxxis being the go-to tire brand with its Assegai, Minion DHF and Minion DHRII taking the top three spots. Tubeless tires were the favoured tire setup over a tube option, although several riders said that they were running a half and half set-up after being unable to seat a tire due to too many dings to the rim.

Here's a look at all the statistics from this year's opening day compared to the previous three.

If a woman is good enough to be a navy seal and wants to be one, then she should be one. Of course, being good enough might mean having to carry a 110kg bleeding and limp comrade, or make rational life-and-death decisions every day of the month. Most women may not be naturally predisposed to those things, but I'm sure there are some that are. Some of the sheilas at my CrossFit are absolute beasts that can pound weights and run all day. In my opinion, the physical side of what might be required in the armed forces is less of a hurdle than people think. The emotional stability side, that will be the question. Not many women could answer yes to the question "Are you capable of being rational every day of the month?"

 @sspiff: Interesting to see how consistent the Magic Mary has been great after year.

The big loser takeaway for me was seeing how few people are afraid to take their #YTrash to the world's #1 bikepark and be publicly associated with it on opening day. YT has gone from 8% of bikes 2 years ago to just 3% this year. Seems like alot of people have been learning from my blog.

The Specialized Demo also took a big hit, but the Big S made up for it by having more riders on their Enduro and Stumpjumper, which really shows you the capability of their shorter travel bikes.

The big disappointment for me was the lack of e bikes and gearbox bikes.

 @DoubleCrownAddict: are you trying to be funny

 Those numbers get a bit inflated when considering OEM setups. We're seeing alot of bikes equipped with assagais out of the box, and given that it is a good tire choice, (and people are generally resistant to change) I'd expect many people to replace worn tires with new tires of the same model. I personally still find the DHR2 to be the most consistant tire, and most ideal in all conditions. I felt the assegai was a great tire, but didn't have the same level of grip in all conditions. Again, that's my perspective, and I'm biased... As I would expect most people who are used to something as specific as tire choice.
  • 16 1
 @DoubleCrownAddict: I would suspect that were seeing less YTs due to their terrible customer service. I honestly don't think your blog really made an impact on those numbers. On a positive for you however; they are doing a fine job of pushing new customers away just fine all by themselves.

In regards to specialized, I think there are a few reasons for this. The Demo is no longer their flagship bike, that crown is held by their enduro. The pricepoint for their spec is high in comparison, and carbon is still highly desirable, even though it's been proven to not be superior in most cases. I feel there are only a few companies doing carbon right.

As far as ebikes and gearbox bikes, ebike prices are still quite high, and thus will negate a large portion of sales for new bikes. It's also early I the ebike Era, so I'd expect as some of these bikes go on sale as second hand, we will likely see a rise in the future, as the people who can afford them now, generally have more than one bike.

As for gearbox driven bikes, that is already a niche market, and until we see a significant rise in gearbox development and use in the OEM market, it will remain there.

 No, not mad at you, exasperated perhaps.

Add the evangelical tone of your opinions that leave little room for alternative viewpoints to the general sense of superiority that you give to those viewpoints and the end result is this: the idea of having a discussion on PB in which you are involved makes me depressed about how the internet has encouraged, among other things, a sense of self righteousness (that we all, including I, suffer from) in us that precludes most of us from an educated discussion.

I should just ignore you, however that is difficult given your evangelical nature.

In the same way that you react to the mention of YT as a brand, I react to many of your opinions in a similar way.

If you wish to retain the right to give us all the continued benefit of your obvious opinions of their company, so you may have to deal with my right to let you know how I feel about you as a member of this community.

 @mtshakira: Didn't built anybody, just called Waki out for racially offensive statements which he refused to ever apologize for or even acknowledge. That night he consumed a combination of psychedelic drugs and Polish vodka which led to his delusional paranoia before he deleted his account again. It was an episode worthy of a blog and might be some interesting reading. The takeaway that I will explain in my blog is that taking the route of racially offensive behavior always leads to failure, and it's best to acknowledge it and apologize rather than stubbornly torture yourself with the denial of it and pretending it wasn't offensive.

It's something the owner of YT could learn from. By refusing to acknowledge their mysogyny and use of offensive Nazi Rune images in their marketing, he is just letting it linger and not letting the company move beyond it.

Oh Jeezas, I should refrain from this, but can't resist,

I, and I suspect many others here, have chosen not to respond to your blog(s), not because I think your assertions are falsehoods, but because, and read this carefully: I don't - give - a - shit about it.

You may well be correct in your assertions about YT. I don't know. I don't care. If YT wish to comment, they can. They have not, to my knowledge responded, and I - don't - care.

It is not incumbent upon anyone to have to engage with you just because you write a blog.

You are allowed by liberals such as myself to hold those opinions. No, criticism of you is not aimed at your beliefs, it is firmly aimed at your - constant - referencing to your beliefs and you - constant - issuing of challenges to others to somehow prove themselves to you through reasoned argument related to your blog contents.

So, I have no desire to discuss the merits of your opinions, however, that does not give you license to use anyone's silence as proof positive of a) their lack of intellect and b) the superiority of your position and intellect and c) justification for name-calling and general lack of decorum in your choice of language.

Forums are better, I believe, in the absence of such.

So, go ahead and believe what you believe. I believe I speak for many here who do - not- care about your personal crusade.

What I do care about is the community here.

 @ DKA

I was making a suggestion to allow you to be able to give your opinion and for those you accuse to respond.

You chose to again throw around insults, rather than suggest any kind of compromise.

I suspect you are a coward.
I suspect you are scared of directly contacting YT for fear of what they would say.
I give not one shit about YT as I said, I am more concerned with removing the cancer that is you from this site now.

As I have said and you have failed to comprehend, it is your attitude to anyone who dares to do anything other than go along with you 100% that is a scourge on this community that riles me and others.

I do not easily throw abuse directly at people, but I will at you. You truly deserve it.

The way you interact in this forum is pathetic.
You, are pathetic for being little more than a cyber bully.

PB are verging on pathetic for allowing you to continue to interact as you do after warmings and suspensions.

Whether or not you have a point about YT is irrelevant to the above.

I wish never to have to interact with you again, and I reserve the right to take any action that would allow me to do so, starting with pressurizing PB directly to remove you.

I will let you and everyone know their response.

While I am doing that, why don’t you do something positive to further your cause and go on and contact YT.

Bet you don’t though, In fact I will take a leaf out of your book of intellectual fallacies and say, go on, prove me wrong.

Only real answer is ignoring him, don't acknowledge a single thing he says. If that were to happen all the fun is gone. A strange part of me actually enjoys reading his ridiculous rants on yt and derailleurs lol but I understand why it really bothers some people. From this point forward, ignore everything he says. Banning isn't the answer, unless he truly is harassing people over private messages but I haven't seen any evidence of that. Don't feed the trolls.

 @TheR: I was not aware of that. Thanks for the advice. It's rather unfortunate though. I do enjoy reading people's perspectives, and for the most part the general comedic undertones to most people's comments. We're all entitled to out opinions, however; It seems too many people are "triggered" and somehow turn a simple disagreement into a personal attack. I disagree with DCA, however he is entitled to his own opinion. Where I get frustrated on that front is he was banned for promoting his blog (not because of the back and forth bs on this forum, as there woukd be alot more people banned). When he decides to nonchalantly bring it up in an attempt to bait people into reading it. That's the same as adding a hyperlink. If people are honestly interested in his potential findings, Google does a great job of that. On the other hand, continuing to throw insults and calling him out is really no better than what he is doing either. This is truly a no win situation until people stop pouring gas on the fire. This happens way too often... It's getting old now.

 @mior: to get a decent idea without removing your tire, you could deflate the tube and check if the tire stays firmly seated. If the rim isn't designed for tubeless it will be pretty easy to unseat the bead. If the rim is tubeless style, you'll find it takes some intentionality to pop the beads down into the rim's center channel.

Sometimes adding dried sealant or rubber cement on the base of the valves to emulate tubeless valve flanged rubber base. Called these kind of setups as tubed-less. Wink

-Odds are good you are a Man/Boy

-Ride Flats
-You are likely to be riding a rig from Giant, Norco, Commencal, YT, Trek, or Specialized
-Equip SRAM Code or Guide Brakes
-Sport a Rockshox Boxxer Fork
-Sport a Rockshox Super Deluxe Shock
-Equip SRAM GX Drivetrain
-Equip DT Swiss Wheels
-Equip Maxxis Assegai or Minion tires
-Rock a TLD or Fox helmet
-Wear Padding from Fox, POC, or RaceFace
-Leave the neck brace at home

Most excellent market research. Thank you Pinkbike! I was really shocked that Fox 40 wasn't the prevalent offering, but maybe its the home country spirit shining through. US Bike Parks may be more heavy on the Fox kit.

 Oem offering and aftermarket pricing are a big reason for the rockshock dominance. Also most people I know (myself included) are tired of fox's awful customer service. They are a horrible company to deal with. It's why the smaller companies have gained a lil ground (DVO primarily) IMO.
  • 1 0
 @Colson217: I guess I've never had to engage with Fox customer service so I don't have an opinion on that matter. It sure seems like Rockshox is usually competively priced with Fox and is equally used in OEM.

 xo1 is the 11 speed group. Remember that 11 speed was where they went full bore 1x, so the 1 refers to the chainring. 12 speed is called eagle. Before that I don’t think they had speed designations in the model name.

 I wonder how many of the DHR tires are ACTUAL DHR:s and not DHR II:s? Original DHR:s are so rare these days people tend to forget the "II" part so I guess veeeery few.

 I thought it was interesting how 2020 seemed to have many statistical anomalies compared to other years. Very interesting survey.

 Just a side note: how hard is it to get some properly formatted tables? Lots of cool data here.. but is honestly quite difficult to read.

 @jlevandoski: alright, fair enough. I’ve been here a much shorter time and seen them on several accounts. It’s probably one of those things that once you’re aware of it you start noticing.

 Why so surprized? Tubes are your only hope to get home not tubeless ofc in case of a unrepairable flat.

 @pballbiker:I do carry one on long trail rides for a spare. However, never on DH/Park runs and if I have to use one, it's pulled out and repaired back to tubeless soon as possible.
