Yes, it's true that there are always deals to be had, just like we described above in the "Component Selection Criteria" section. The MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price) doesn't change however. We needed to compare apples to apples, so MSRP values are what we listed.

Thanks for the reply. I was trying to keep it original. Yes, if I keep riding it to work, a new seat may make more sense in reality.

I like how his exclamations of terror are the same as his exclamations of excitement. I can't tell the difference until he says "that was fun" or "I almost crashed." Such a good track previewer.

He doesn't need to sing any songs. The commentary is too good for that.

Glad to see the follow finally happened. I am sure it was a lot of work. I honestly still like the first one more. Nice video work and trail on this!

where are the American riders? I would think this is the Rampage version in the streets.

"it's just a bike".
Well, it is just a bike! at least until it gets above 2k range, then it is an expensive bike. Even that can be skewed depending on your $$$ relevance. Anyway, my dad still thinks it is just riding a bike, he has no freaking idea why I paid to take lessons for just riding a bike. The common public perception will never change. Mechanics are valued by anybody who uses them to adjust and fix their bikes, and they are the ones who determine the $$$ value by those mechanics, and hence how much the mechanics earn at that shop. There are many professions that are over valued and charge outrageous prices(plumbers for example), but most those things you can not buy over the internet. It has been my opinion that the shop portion of a bike shop is critical for the survival of the shop to do well. Nothing wrong with joeshmo doing his own wrenching, when he needs more technical skills he will take to shop and pay that person to do it.

"I don't see people hating on Rampage or World Cup DH tracks" Well, many people wreck on those tracks, and not one has died. You wreck here, from what I can see, your looking at pure cliff, so you die. That is dumb way to live, one stupid mistake and your gone. You know it is kinda like the the difference between suicide and dying saving somebody elses life. One is just pure stupid. No hate, from me...sure its rad

That is just freaking nuts. The reward to risk ratio is pretty stupid off the charts. I will wait for the news on a rescue due to some other MTB'r going for it who shouldn't go for it. Mad skills to the riders!
