What a funny thing to say. Yes clips, especially on this track. It's three and a half minutes of running into curbs.

Like Jeff is saying - there is enough money to be made off of fixed investments that the 'legacy' stuff will keep being made for as long as they can sell it above costs. In the case of 26" stuff, that's going to be a while because good slopestyle and Youth bikes aren't going away - some of the newer tread patterns won't make it as it'll take too long to hit the break-even, but as long as MinionDHF's, Deore type hubs, and some rim options stick around then that bike will be supportable for the next decade and still be a cheap to operate item.

Mostly, a lot of the new standards aren't themselves better, but enable development other other areas which cumulatively make the bike better - so even if some small parts are answer to questions nobody asked for individually, the honest answer is that all the R&D money companies put in will keep turning into incremental gains.
Hopefully some of the intermediate-cost brands will realize that instead of playing the 'bathe new bikes in bling' game in hopes of keeping up with big companies and losing, they could be into making updated geometry 26" bikes with good tire clearance, good value parts spec, and make the valid argument that those bikes are just more fun to actually ride than something which is overkill for most trails.

These kinds of debates are what 300 post comments are made from, there just isn't "right" answer? Haha. Who you ride with, where you live, what terrain like to ride, etc... At least there isn't as much trolling on this site vs the other one.

Anyway, I use the same argument with the lifted pickup, but more power to those guys if that's what they want and really helps up their FigJam game at the trailhead. I live in the Denver, Front Range and only have one "modern" bike a SB66c @150mm, and use for sure bikepark/burlier trail but do a lot of XC too, even a lap on WhiteRim on Minions which was a dumb choice. Interesting as well, when I got it in 2012, I had a 200mm DH bike which I sold b/c the SB66c was so much better at everything once my skills caught up, like you said about skill/fitness matters more than travel.

Spent a couple of days in Moab on the newer SB5 and while better, still similar enough to the SB66 IMHO. Also think an argument could be made about how the level of speed and aggression you put into a trail can have a big influence on bike and fun which I guess is just defacto if you race. A 8-10min run down lower Ahab is a very different experience than a 15-20min ride.

My buddies are smoking me on their long travel 29'ers on some sections of trails and they all have good things to say about the new stiffness of the newer bikes, so I can see one in my future for sure.
