@hilli337: Hell yeh man! All riding is good riding. I look back at old photos of me on a 26 Commencal DH V2 though and wonder why I brought a BMX to a downhill race.

@gavind: I'm sure you did awesome for the level of support you were given. I run a team but at nowhere near that level. It's a tough business. Just think, he might never have achieved what he has without you. You should be proud dude!

@BEERandSPOKES: Sorry to hear you are also afflicted. Not many do I'm afraid. I was told my V10 looked small on me the other day... it's a XXL with a reach adjust cup and 50mm stem. I hope Payet wins everything for the 200cm plus community.

Now this is some good news! Payet has so much talent but so little real support thus far. Stoked on this linenup!

Trek Teases New DH Team Riders
There were maybe only 3 regularly qualifying female racers this year out of contract. One of them was Rachel. Who would you like to put on your team with your money and why?

Mondraker Foxy Carbon RR SL Review
At 6ft 6 and owning an XL dune for the past few years, I agree with most of these pros and cons. The bike works well when ridden like a long wheelbase DH bike. At low speed it feels long and awkward, but through high speed rough and long turns it's a dream. My biggest gripe with all these bikes is seat tube angle. Especially for the taller rider. Companies need to steepen up a bit. A 175mm post won't get anywhere near me, and the saddle is always slammed far forward and nose down. it's very hard to keep your weight over the middle on seated climbs and not feel like you are looping out.
