    i said do it all and rule at none. cuz really theres no big stuff or climbing to go down here. just trails that throw a little of everything at you.

    To me All Mountain is doing all the climbing/trail that a full on XC bike would do and on top of that do all of the trails that a full on DH bike would do. Basically go to the trails that the DH bikes would love but cant get too (no shuttling and too far to walk/push). Too difficult for a XC bike to reach (knarly descent before the real climb where a XC bike would excel.). Basically where neither one of those categories can reach...but will excel at is what a AM should be.

    I know I may have just described endurance.....but yea

    Here at Bootleg Canyon, it's mostly about climbing and bombing down.
    That being said, I could have gone with one bike to do it all.

    Peace and Long Rides...

    Well, to sum it up, the only reason I go up is to go down.
