It's more of a Masters (National level) crowd, so not too many hipsters. It's a pretty cool track. 250m, 44 degrees in turns, 17 on the straights, wooden track. We just put down new boards (it's open air). Superdrome in Frisco, Texas.

As legit as a 90s all-rigid mtb?

Maybe.

those were very legitimate times. big wheels. wide handlebars. gears you shifted with your thumbs. it was a thing and it's probably good people are still riding in that style. god bless the 1990's and unicrown forks. like a sneeze of bicycles.

90s all-rigid mtb is most hyper-legit.

If you can ride one of those through a real New England rock garden, you're alright by me.

Nowadays people act like they "mountain bike" cause they have the obstacle-free local flow trail dialed on their 6 inch travel enduro rig.

P. f. t.

There was a time was when mountain biking was hard and that's why we loved it.

and yet when the first gen rock shox came out, it was pretty mind bending.

where did bar ends get to? scott at4s were the best at bashing through brush.

apparently there's a new human powered speed record for a bike, almost 140km/hr.

Bars are super-wide now cause wheels/tires are bigger, bikes and trails faster. So the extra leverage helps with the high speed control and pushing around the extra centrifugal force (is that right? my physics are rusty). So it would be ludicrous to have bar ends on 750-800 mm bars. You'd catch em on everything.

XC dudes could run bar bends but those stupid fucking ergon flat grips and that inside-of-the-grip thumb catch bullshit are all the rage.

I love bar ends for pure XC and gravel grinding.

I'm pretty much limited to road riding, which I hardly ever do anymore. I have a great (for me) Cervelo waiting for me though.

Actually, sometimes it serves that purpose. Never said I was any good.
