#!markdown Just an interesting aside re. rider weight. In my experience working in shops, if we are talking about two riders that are charging equally hard (lets say they are racing DH) and I had to guess who destroyed more parts based on only one physical characteristic I'd go with whoever had the shorter inseam. The relative difference of 180lbs vs. 220lbs with today's manufacturing isn't really notable aside from suspension setup. But the options a rider with short legs and short arms has in terms of maneuvering a bike through steep terrain are very different. Not saying he's not smooth, but look at Sam Hill's line choices vs. say Greg Minnaar.
