i bet this bike absolutely rips. Something i am very curious of is how does a company successfully tell its customer that this alloy bike is now their fastest/best dh bike yet, while over the past 10 years they have told their customer that you NEED carbon. i get all the...more

I think we'll see a carbon version sooner than later.. With everything going on right now, a carbon version may have pushed off the release. Or, maybe they are selling enough DH bikes to justify the extra expense..

Really well thought through frame, I’d love to ride one.

As an aside the pricing makes me sad. When GG is making carbon front triangle frames domestically and selling frame with shock for less than 3k, makes an alloy overseas made frame/shock for 3k look pretty bad. Given...more

It's pretty rad to see a rider go back and hit/interpret the lines of other riders from previous Rampages. There are so many cool features that get built, hit maybe 3 or 4 times for the sake of competition, and then forgotten about.

Those jumps are really long in person. And it’s hard to tell in the vid but the quick skip before the last hit in that jump line makes it pretty gnar

Way to get that bar drag at 1:40.

"Value" is so subjective, especially when compared to the direct to consumer brands. I'd argue that there is a tremendous amount of value missing for the consumer on those dtc bikes that extends well beyond what derailleur is spec'd. Also, if you haven't owned one of their bikes in over 8...more

You are actually free to have fun in NZ and ride how you want. Each lift pass comes with a guy ironically named Paver. He follows you around with a shovel. Keeps you happy and him employed.

But that's a big problem. When you've been sending the production overseas for decades, to the point that the related jobs are not valued anymore, so that students don't want to do this, or as said in this podcast would rather work for boeing of medical, it's the whole chain...more

Thanks for the replies.

spomer didn't mean to imply you glossed over it but I think the general "make everything in us" crowd does at times. I don't want to mention the brand but it is a large one in a major metro area. One issue they brought up is that price isn't really...more

With those prices are they asking 4500 frame only?

That was pretty wicked. The open loop 360 was awesome.

So Matt hit the DarkFest jumps a year or so back and was stoked but hasn't been back. And I don't think that Brandon Semenuk has ever been there. It's a matter of taste. So how about Tech Fest! Bring in that Red Bull money and give...more
