Ever since the Honda, I have been waiting for gear boxes to come (of course there are a couple others out there). It just makes too much sense, which is unfortunately why the industry doesn't want to do it.

.Bring it on. I like the sound of the lighter 9 speed for DH.

If you're going to ride a commuter, might as well make it interesting!

Am I seeing this more as an "enduro" crankset or is it also suitable for DH use? I love Hope bling but I haven't seen/heard info on this crank's intended use or info on what it is not suitable for.

So many insane line choices... Part of why I loved this race was just watching which lines each racer took and seeing how it affected their time. Gwin clearly lost a shit ton of time after the rock garden when he got swallowed in the low line, rather than staying high. Seeing Sam smash the absolute shit out of this course literally makes my palms sweat. Crazy, scary fast. BRING ON WORLDS!!!

...& that's an excuse for not having the basic skills to hit that rock garden? Cause let me tell you, if you can't do that little guy, don't come to any races, XC or otherwise, in Arizona.

You talked a bunch about how they're different kinds of athletes. that's not a valid reason, or excuse, for why they can't ride what is essentially stairs. That's basic off-road riding skill, regardless of your discipline, & I don't need to pedal up 15km to say it.

hearing Rach talk about how the course designer has been laboring over this track for the past 15 years to make it the awesomeness that it is, has me even more fired up for Saturday. This is truly going to be a super epic gnar bang of a final.

Sven's/duncans collage was insane.

Sam is about to bring the heat this weekend, I think everyone and their mother is beyond stoked for this grand finale

So awesome. you can literally hear the excitement in Sam's voice when he talks about the track. Meribel takes us back to the natural, gnarly tracks that he used to own time and time again. While I always want Sam to come out on top, it would be totally fucking awesome to have him win here at Meribel.

I'm not ready to be done vicariously living through these slideshows. We need an 8-race season, plus Worlds, because we all love it so much.

Depends- Avalanche was selling forks back then for the same price now (just shy of $2k) and there are many complete DH bike options starting around $3k or even less. Prices haven't gone up that much, but there are more $10k options now than before that is for sure (namely because there are more brands playing in more categories) and you are getting more/better bike for your money. But there are way more cheaper/entry level bikes as well.

Good buy. As Adam notes below, these are retail prices. We listed them because discounts vary widely world wide. You could likely build this bike for much less than the retail value.

The price of bikes, with some exceptions, has not gone up over the years. In the early nineties Specialized had a carbon/titanium hardtail that retailed for almost $9,000. If you ask me, you get WAY more for your money nowadays.
