My 2 cents is that I'm 41 and in the big belly, bike and wallet category. Yet when I ride, I ride with 18-44 year olds. The biggest Hucks (20+ feet are done by the guys older than me). A lot of kids lose out on the enduros because they buy heavy freeride bikes and wonder why they can't pedal up and over terrain at speed. (A couple kids have 44 tooth DH rigs and ride my tail up hills while I'm huffing in Granny - not many but some).
…Point is, we ride 29s, single speeds DHs XCs All Mtns. and we ride with whoever wants to rip at the trailhead. If you can pedal and keep up, than its all good.

Save your skier-snob shit for the lift lines and keep it out of our sport. Last thing we need is more division in this world…

Isn't it all about the ride? Like in "Ride hard, ride free and save the trees?"

I like the tone this thread is taking lately . . . and hopefully it will close down soon.

Its all about individual experience and the rush needed to create peaks within one's life. 6 years old, 25, 40, or 75 . . . ride it, roll it, drop it, jump it; do it on the best bike you can grab, and if you can't do it on a bike (so sad) do it some other way. Stop whinning about what you see others doing and having and look to how you can get your own mind into explosive experiences.

enough?

:rolleyes:

it was a friggin joke people, get over it. maybe read thru a few pages first before responding to get an idea of where the thread has gone. and guess what, if you want a thread to die, don't respond to it. by coming in here and bitching all you do is push the thread back to the top of the board.

ps - toight chics on any kind of bike rawk.

context is everything

How true!
And of course the bling does not end with the initial purchase…there are those constant maintenance costs, even for home mechanics, associated with ever increasing mechanical complexity (e.g. Fox suspension) and proprietary designs (special tools required).
