If Red Bull and other companies did not receive a financial gain from the athletes beyond what they receive from any of their consumers, then I would agree with your sentiment. However, while these athletes love what they do, and would likely push the boundaries regardless of Rampage, I do not believe that is a good reason to allow a company to exploit the athletes. They and the diggers are still providing a major financial benefit to the sponsors and organizers of Rampage, and it is unjust to withhold adequate compensation and safety precautions. In essence, athletes and diggers are working for the organizers and sponsors of Rampage from the moment they walk onto the site to dig or ride until they walk off it again.
They deserve the safest work environment possible, just like any other worker in every other job. They also deserve just compensation for the work/benefit they provide, just like any other worker in every other job.

Well said. I have had one thought running through my mind constantly since I found out about Paul's injury. Could a catch fence like seen in Olympic Skiing have prevented his injury? Could the Rampage organizers reasonably install these and other "fall protection" on the mountain without interfering with the riders lines? Is it (or should it) even be their responsibility to take such safety measures? I love Rampage, but this year has made me sick at heart. If it can't be made safer and worthwhile "to a reasonable person" for the dig teams and athletes, then I am willing to turn my focus to other events.

I haven't ever noticed it when I ride, but I don't like to feel my cranks rubbing the inside of my shoes either, so I keep my feet a little more to the outside edge of the pedals. That's where the wide platform really shines, other pedals I have had were too narrow to let me put my feet far enough from the crank and still feel connected to the bike.

I'm way excited to see YT in North America, but I'm still waiting for the website...
Agreed, I want a test review. I want to know if their coil shock is really more progressive than an Air shock can be, (they make that claim on their site.)http://www.stendec-works.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=30&Itemid=22
And I want to see the weight of the shock with an extreme spring on it, and then compare it to a DB Air of the same size to see if the Stendec shock really is lighter.

If the inner tube and tire don't make the outer chamber air tight, then wouldn't the outer chamber deflate? do you just inflate the inner tube to a low pressure (like 10 psi) then inflate the outer chamber, then inflate the inner chamber the rest of the way to seat the outer tire/seal the outer chamber? That's what I came up with wile thinking about it today at least.

And if it really works as well as the claim, riders who use DH casing tires could move down to single ply casing tires, and can maintain or lose overall system weight.
How did he inflate the outer "chamber?" A ghetto dual chamber would be sweet.
That's what I was thinking, and switch the 40 Float for a Boxxer WC or an Idylle Rare and you could get the same or lower weight, and have all DH specified parts on the DH bike.

Two questions. One, why aren't the Lapierre guys on the new bike? Two, when will the video editor for these films get the volume of the music an the interviews to match? I hate how one second I have to turn up the volume to hear anything, and the next I'm turning it down to save my hearing. Other than that, sweet job!

Make it a drone, then it can push you and your bike to the top, and you can "drive" it back down either before or after your run. Then you can do shuttle runs by yourself!
