This has been taken too far and needs to change. It's a modern gladiator spectacle.

I'm a cynic as well. And the bike on moto picture was definitely used as clickbait for this video, it really had nothing to do with anything - but it did its job and made me click.
That said, moto bike racks are probably used by attention getting d-bags, just like anything else. But if you live in a traffic clogged area where lane splitting is legal/an option, then there is nothing like it for getting to far flung riding destinations after a full work week. In this shown case, not so much, but don't discount all usefulness.

I really don't get what intense is thinking with there ALU frames. Do they try and make them as complicated to make as humanly possible? honestly how many separate pieces/ welds does it take to make this frame? so many points for possible failure and misalignments to happen....more

`gotcha. I always find these "look at this light bike!" things really funny when it comes from a bike company. The only part that makes this bike different than what any weenie can build is the frame and shock. So lets compare weights of frame + shock: then you know what is the lightest bike you can build with whatever parts you want. That said: welcome to the end of race season vital fans.

To clarify: we started out making a "DH 800 bar" and an AM760 bar with the same rise and sweep. they were both 35mm clamp diameter. They were different molds, different laminate and different strength requirements. During testing, we found out that the DH bar was stiffer than we wanted, so we worked on the laminate to get it less stiff. As we worked through it, it became clear we could make an 800 at the AM weight spec, and reach the DH test requirement. We scrapped the DH bar tooling, and modified the AM760 mold to make 800mm width. We ended up with the DH strength requirement, the stiffness we wanted, and making the "DH" bar 42 grams lighter than our target. At that point, we just called it AM since its specced on the Nomad. Semantics really, we'll spec that same bar on a V10 as well since it hits the test requirement for DH. the "TR760" is the same laminate, but 40mm narrower.

Chris Ball and Stu Thomson took a group of us on some of the Innerleithen trails last year after the Glentress 7. So steep! in the rain it must be insane racing on that. Wish I was there.

What an incredible weekend to experience, just catching up on the slideshows now with norte americano internet speeds. The riding, racing, incredible group of people and late night pisco sours will not be something I'll forget anytime soon. It really is as good as the slideshows capture.
