Great article - time to suck up the PB exodus!!  I've got an trail/xc hardtail Titanium that is super light but has dated gearing - 10speed standard ratio spread. Climbing is just as easy on my Slash with its 12speed wide range (just not as fast!) but a bike that weighs 10 pounds more.  I suppose a wide range on the Ti would make it an awesome climber but you get the point. Modern gearing had made weight less of an issue especially when you can have the DH benefits of a heavier burlier bike .
