    All the PBike comments crack me up complaining the lip is too shaped to call it a natural hit. Drifting a berm that you need to pump hard as the setup to your massive lip to attempt a double back flip seems challenging...Bass is an animal, dialed for sure. Also stoked to keep the boost in the mtns. GIT SOME.

    i still can't believe that under-rotated attempt...looks so painful! then to get back up and do it again the next day? GnarPaul.
