By the time you get these lard-ass cassettes bolted up and then you realize that your barely-worn single ring WILL need a chainguide in order to pound rock gardens with any haste without tossing a chain you will have saved no grams over a front derailleur and a wider gear range...

Lets just go back to 2x9 and be done with it...lighter, smaller cassettes. 11-32 cassette with 24, 36 chainrings or a 22 granny to climb any steep tech or pedal any DH. Why are we going back to making chainrings and cassettes so large?

Anyone remember the "Hyperdrive-C" revolution?

I swear other industries are laughing at the gullibility of mtb consumers and the asinine "innovations" that mtb engineering has coughed up.

After watching this slideshow I can't help but question why so many people get their panties in a bunch over the wooden features. All I see is people talking about "natural" this or "natural" that when they complain about the wood features. But can someone then explain to me what is "natural" about some of the things I saw on the slideshow? I mean look at slide #5, or #34. In #34 that gap that (I am assuming) Fairclough built. That's natural? Why because its made of dirt and rocks? When you spend days piling up rocks and dirt to build a massive takeoff and landing that otherwise did not exist prior, I'm sorry but there is nothing 'natural' about that. And Slide #5? This are perfectly sculpted lips and takeoffs. Does that mean I can claim I'm riding 'natural' terrain next time I hit the jump line at my local bike park?

Don't take this rant as a knock on whats going on here, I love it. I'm just saying its a bit hypocritical to shart all over the wood features because they aren't natural but then be ok with these other features just because they are made of dirt and rocks.

i do not understand this. there was no timelapse of clouds and no dubstep or emo music. where are the 240fps slow motion shots? this is not a mountain biking video.

I don't get how he didn't figure this out before the season started...
