I would really liked to have seen a "wobble score"- rating how fast play develops in the bushing/bearing. That to me is the biggest indicator of quality. But I guess that wouldn't happen on a full suspension in 10 days unless they were complete P.O.S.

Added a comment about feature How in the Hell Does Kirt Voreis Not Have a Bike Sponsor? 11/11/2016 9:46 AM
C50_21080_1600x1200_wallpaper_cb1318527290

Kirt is a real OG and godfather of today's mtbing. Maximum respect to him. People like him and Lenosky belong in the MTB hall of fame. But unfortunately that's life in the biz today. The progression curve is so steep that people who were Legends six or seven years ago, are getting schooled by 15-25 yr old kids that have no sponsors and just riding for fun.
For better or worse- you can blame the internet and YouTube. Back in the day, people thought bunnyhop tailwhips were impossible on mtb, but now seems pretty common. The "monkey see-monkey do effect" is powerful.....(where it seems impossible until you get on YouTube and dozens of other people doing it). It reminds me of a many years ago when I was trying to learn 360 bunnyhops, and they seemed impossible---then I was on YouTube and was blown away that some fat 16-17 year old kid in Arkansas was doing them easily on a Walmart bike. I credit that fat kid for giving me the intense motivation to learn that trick. It's bike Darwinism........just ask Blackmarket bikes and Atomlab.

This is probably similar to riding fakie. Nobody could ride the bike for the same reason you could not expect them to do a bunny hop 180 to fakie on a normal bike
