In 5 years, it will be affordable. In 10 years, every bike sold in a bike shop will have it. A little competition from SRAM will help this along in a big way.

Makes sense, couple of beers, and a rowdy crowd, lot of people would do the same if you egged them on.

My neck hurts just watching it, poor bastard.

Agreed, Rampage is due for a new site. If Berrecloth and McCaul like it, then I want to see it. But photographers could climb all over the old site, this looks treacherous for those without magic wheels and/or helicopter. Red Bull knows the money comes from the media, not rider stoke.

Then again, maybe the media will film the whole thing with quadcopters. It's a brave new world MFers.

That problem is related to two bigger problems which are: 1) too many people, and 2) too many litigious people. Even if a great trail is built legally here, buzz gets around and every storm trooper with a Monster Energy tee shirt comes to ride it. Then a storm trooper comes a little short on a gap jump and everybody gets shut out while the attorneys wring the landowner for every dime on their liability policy.

I thought of the exact same thing, NORBA Nationals. That was the year I showed up without any accommodations, thinking I could crash with Joey. He was like, "yeah, sorry dude, I'm getting laid tonight." So I slept in the back of his truck in the condo parking lot like a hobo. Also, I thought I could just show up and compete in trials, and NORBA was like, "yeah, sorry dude, registration closed like a month ago". Oh, and JJ Gregorovich was there, and I was like, "hey, JJ, what's up man!" and he was like, "yeah, sorry dude, don't talk to me."

All in all, that was an awesome trip.

Wish I could go. Tippie is a one-man riot. Plus, Ray's is absolutely the most fun you will ever have indoors.

Or you could just drill your rims and run Schraders, like the North Shore huckin', not give a f##kin', bar draggin' badass that you are.

Prestas are for road bikes.

I'm married w/ children, and therefore I ride a 5 year old Pike that I bought from Mike Ferrentino (yes that guy) for $40. Damn it's a good fork, best I ever had (well the 2002 Boxxer was pretty good too). I don't do jack to maintain the poor thing, and it just keeps sucking up big and little bumps. No leaks, creaks, or sneaks (what?). Hope it never dies, I can't afford to buy a new one for $1000!
