Yeah, I pay to ride a chairlift so that I can prove I'm not a sally and drop down a fire road to lose a bunch of elevation and then pedal my DH bike up to the top of vista. It only takes 15 or 20 minutes of time that I could be getting runs if riding a chair and I sure do love pedaling my DH bike up a lose gravel road... lol…. I'll usually hit up vista side a few times in a day even though the chair is closed , but it's a hot slog to get to the top with a big bike and takes a lot of time... time spent on a fire road… at a bike park. Think about it. Even if I was xc fit enough to pedal it 30 times in a day, it's not the kind of thing I want to be doing after paying to ride a chairlift, sally or not.

There's no way it weighs 36.6 pounds... Maybe without pedals...

Hey Mav, you can get some boxxer lowers and install it on your Pike uppers and shazam!!!, a 20mm axle Pike. Seriously. The pros are doing it.

They're making it look harder than it really is and letting fear get in the way.

...& that's an excuse for not having the basic skills to hit that rock garden? Cause let me tell you, if you can't do that little guy, don't come to any races, XC or otherwise, in Arizona.

Go ahead - give me crap - but it's sad to see XC racers with little to no MTB skills. What exactly is mountain biking if all you do is easy featureless non technical trails? What then separates a road biker from a mountain biker? The technical skills. Otherwise it's just dirt road biking.

Rockshox Boxxer RC. The worst dual crown fork I have used. With no high speed compression adjustment, there is no way to control the dampening. At high speeds, I could never get it to feel right. The ten clicks of low speed compression go from harsh feeling to even more harsh with each click in. I had one that came with a devinci wilson XP. I rode it for one day and it was so bad, bars were ripping out of my hands, I felt every hole and big compressions were painful, I started getting blisters on my hands and I have never gotten blisters before. I changed spring weights, tried every setting, talked to mechanics. They told me the dampening in the RC doesn't work, the oil pushes around the shim stack instead of through it, causing harsh dampening. I then mounted up my old Fox 40 RC2 and it felt great. Everything was right again. That Boxxer RC is a joke of a fork. Put an AVA cartridge in it.
