Norco Sight 29 "Bonko".

To be fair, I've had it over a year now. But yeah, I put a lot of miles on this bike. Despite having a few other bikes in the quiver, this is always the bike I reach for.
A pair of tires lasts 3 days at the bike park. A pair of brake pads lasts a month, maybe (I do change out rear pads more frequently than fronts). Chains stretch, cassettes get mangled/wear out and derailleurs meet their end in crashes or on rocks. Bars I change every 9-12 months for safety, and one saddle ended up wrapped around my thigh mid-spring.
But through all of that, I haven't had to replace any frame components save a single bearing on the lower shock mount that I got full of locktite.

Sorry that you think the question is dumb. Maybe I can attempt to ask it in a more articulate way and hopefully get a more constructive response. Some pro riders on YouTube have gone to great effort to demonstrate their strict adherence to lockdown rules (possibly helping reinforce the rules), whereas this video takes a different approach and provides a momentary escape from lockdown. Considering that both ways could be well within the rules; which do you think is the best message to viewers?

Thanks man. Very happy to hear you’re stoked on the content. It feels like people were frothing even harder this year for World Cup RAW videos!
Spomer asked me to dig out riders riding rocks then suggested I travel a little further into the past so I dug out my 2010 hard drive. I had originally everything in chronological order on the timeline which was cool but I thought it might be cool to group the shots by location regardless of the year. It jumps back and forth which is cool as you can see Mick Hannah hitting the same section of track in 2010 followed immediately by Gwin seven years later.
I guess to answer your question on editing process, I wanted to visually show how far bikes have come since 2010 by putting shots of the fastest in the World side by side with more recent shots. I find it fascinating that the bikes of 2010, at the time, couldn’t have been more dialled. Everything was perfect, yet with the passing of time, it seems so obvious that there was huge room for improvement.
It makes me wonder what bikes will look like in 10 years time and what way we will look back on the bikes of 2020.
