Thanks a bunch for talking to Jose spomes. Probably the best one yet! I think he's out in left field with justifying boost because no way that exists over the 150-ish standards in 5 years (and he probably knows this) because everyone with a dh bike already knows all they had to do was move to a 157/20mm standard and get even better benefits on the goals. But super cool hearing his breadth of experience.

I agree with you Kris and thought the same thing when he was discussing it. Dropping 4-6k every 3 years when a lot of times a shock and maybe a new fork is most of the advancement, is hard to swallow.

I get was Jose is saying about basically rotating out your bike every 3 years. But even for the avid rider that becomes an expensive proposition, especially with the continual changes and looking at buying complete builds. I'm a picky guy...more

Dude, please. Skis are like 500 bucks if you don't just walk into Shifty Lou's full retail shop in December.

Not even close to the same universe. Bindings about 200 bucks (and of course you can move them between skis, as well as the boots). And umm psssst: (bikes aren't motorized vehicles, they should be cheaper). I mean I can get a sweet 450f dirt bike for what All mountain bikes across the entire price range cost (which is $10,000).

When you've never preloaded suspension in your life, then yes: damping is just so your full suspension bike 'pedals like a hardtail™' Because that's what everyone wants right? A suspension bike that acts like a hardtail on the way up and then a cadillac on the way down, one you can just sit there and do absolutely nothing on. Where these myths came from I'll never understand.

Steve Wentz asks the best questions.

Quinton is such a badass. Needs way more coverage for the amount of work, alcohol, and just obviously geniune passion for DH he brings to this little corner of sports. Thanks spomes!!

I don't even know what those are. They're kind of shaped like a snowboard but with a dumb font.

Which is exactly what I'm basing some of that on. Remember the first few races where 27.5 wheels were predominant? Remember all the flats? I do. And the jump from 27 to 29 is a bigger handling gap. If some of these teams make their 5'2" women ride 29ers, ... more »

I hope every bike in the race is a 29er. That way we can enjoy half the field going off track in tight turns (especially the shorties), more broken wheels throughout the day than we've seen since kovarik, and brakes boiling over. Not to mention I'm sure ... more »

I wholeheartedly disagree: drunkwarner and freecaster made racing great again.

We're seeing the result of having 'a future'. Not showing anywhere near the entire field coming down the course, wasting 20 minutes explaining what a bike is instead of showing racing, and a severe lack of Warner's anecdotes from the wild west of the 90s. Don't kid yourself. No non-mountain biker is going out of their way to deliberately tune into a red bull internet broadcast and buying a 6k bike because of it. It's better when it's for the intended audience.
