#!markdown But you accused us of promoting something - when we did not. Reporting findings and promoting are very different things. You may argue about whether we should have tested this bike, but again I feel strongly that pretending a technology doesn't exist does nothing to protect us from it, if we decide need protecting. If you want me to draw a line in the sand then I will say I'd prefer not to see these bikes on trails that can't be shuttled, but I think they are much better than shuttling and chairlifts where those are the methods used to get to the top. But a trail by trail approach would be impossible, so where does that leave me? Right where I said I was. One thing I was certain of was that this would generate discussion about this topic - and I feel strongly that this discussion needs happen. I also knew that getting the discussion going in this way would produce a backlash, but I hoped most of it would be reasonable rather than knee-jerk and accusatory. And most of it has been.
