The benefits of the PMB bikes are for the long pedal sections. Although this course looks pretty smooth, it doesn't seem all that pedally outside that short part at the end. So the shorter travel bikes probably won't provide much benefit. If there isn't alot of pedaling, a DH bike will always be the fastest, regardless of how smooth it is.

I think this is a great point. I've only been mountain biking for about 4 years but I've already gotten to the point of being able to to handle most normal bike maintenance on my own. I've even built my last 2 bikes from scratch on my own. I really only take the bike to the shop for more complex this at this pint like suspension problems and tune ups. Bikes really aren't all that complicated. I think a lot of people who are interested enough in riding to spend big money on a bike are likely interested in taking care of the bike too.

I think cost is the biggest issue with expanding to 8-9 rounds. Its not cheap for even the biggest teams to run a full WC schedule. Many teams, besides the real big guys often struggle just to do 6-7 rounds.

So we are going to get DH finals on Saturdays at some stops? That will be odd at first.

The Green DVO fork looks great on this bike. Unfortunately I've seen some early builds that just look dreadful with that green fork. I know its function over style but man does that thing looks awful on the wrong color bike.

Agreed. For larger riders with big wingspans (like minaar) it makes sense. But outside that it's likely overkill and out of the comfort zone for most people.

When you post the video of you doing the trick without the wrist stops, I promise I will be the first to comment on how much more badass you are than this kid.

Sorry to hear that. This was probably my favorite Bike of the Day. Hope you find the person who stole it.
