How long do you guys give fest series? Historically it seems like freeriders like to go ride in one off big jump events to far for spectators until they run out of money and start bitching about how mtb doesn't pay enough. The following year you see them all riding hardtail events in downtown euroland followed by bitching about how small and lame courses are. Agree or disagree?
fest series is here to stay. its by the riders, for the riders.. not some baunce course designer building a wack course with a live feed camera in the riders grill telling them to drop in the wind. it’s not going anywhere and is only going to get better.
what is your take on 650b? it seems to be great for going fast but what about rampage and events where trick will be put down a big bike?
I was pretty opposed to the big wheel thing until I tried it. I thought the larger wheels were going to make spins and flips more difficult, but tbh I can’t notice any difference. The bikes are so light nowadays anyways. You’re right though, it really shines in the high speed and rough seggys; way smoother. So yeah, maybe big wheels it will help some guys out at Rampage..
