    ^^^Yeah I got four different calls yesterday from people hanging out during and after riding all day at dirt demo. Chilling in the AC, drinking a few cold ones, those bastards. I probably started it by sending a pic of me on the lift at Northstar on Sunday... :D

    behind you, don't wait up.
    now THAT is an Interbike report! I'll be checking PB for more of these detailed video interviews. You can only get some much from still pics and written descriptions.

    That Yeti video was the single biggest piece of marketing propaganda and BS that I've ever heard. It's good to see how the car on the 303 is so well protected, but jeez, a little over the top with the cheese there. I have an AS-X, and it's a good bike, but dang, now I'm almost embarassed to ride it with how the company presents it.

    wow
    hater!

    It was interesting, but hardly showed any riding or action. I kept hoping they'd jump to... Now lets see it on the demo course.

    do a search.

    we have all expressed our opinions on the 303.

    rails are not needed when pivots bearing work fine.

    they found a solution to something that works fine.

    Gotcha Alex - from your post it sounded more like you had issues with how they were developing the rail system, not that you had issues with the idea itself.

    the rail failed. Houseman's bike blew up, and everyone knows it. All the bungee jumpers are afraid of the truth.
