Dear Vital: Any chance we could get a back to back RAW video of current day RAW versus RAW of years ago?? I'm talking RAW previous to Carbon DH frame, Carbon wheels and Clutch Derailleurs. I would love to see the same rider back to back, or the same frame (different generations), or the same section of a track (if possible). It would be cool too see and hear how much bikes and riders have improved in the rough stuff in just 5-10 years.

I'm all for it. 20+ years of hard core MTB experience and 10+ years extreme enduro moto experience.
No it's not 'pure' in the MTB/sado masochististic pedaling sense whatever the hell that means. And no I can't do a 100+ mile epic singletrack throttle twisting day on it. This is a different more accessible hybrid.

I MTB 5-6 days a week, 500,000+ ft elevation climbing a year. Face it, the climb to descend ratio sucks. Spend 20+ minutes climbing for a 2-3 minute descent. I'd love to improve that fun ratio and this is a tool that can do it. I could give a sh!t if it's legal, most of the good trails are not to begin with. It also means I don't have to drive 4+ hours each way for good motoing.

Why is it a lot of folks think their preferred form of recreation is superior to others? This is a tool to get more folks out enjoying the great outdoors. NIMBYism will say we don't want more folks on 'our' trails and it may be a bit depressing to see some tubby dude 30 miles out when you've busted your hump for 3 hours to get their but anything that moves more people away from the idiot box and outside is good for society as a whole.

Don't burn it with fire, this is next in my arsenal. Intense T275Factory, KTM 350XCF-W, Specialized Turbo Levo
