    The official definition of All-Mountain per Fox

    all-mountain A style of bicycle riding that melds the stamina and conditioning required of cross-country with the technical abilities of freeriding.

    So there you have it...

    Definition seems correct. It's about the ride not the bike. I do have friends who own bikes like Turner 5.5 who I would define as XC riders.

    I use to ride with a group that avoided techncial stuff. (XC) I switched to a group that thrives on technical stuff. (All Mountain)

    Same bike, different style of riding.

    Oh the humanity!

    Well, that's it! Let's pack up this traveling circus called AM and get on over to the "XC Racing" and "Save Some Weight" forums. July 15, 2006...the day that Fox killed the AM movement. Damn them!

    Marzocchi's definition

    As it relates to them categorizing their products' intended usage:

    Riding BASED WITH more emphasis on aggressive XC riding WITH larger obstacles. AM RIDING DOES NOT INCLUDE LARGE JUMPS OR DROPS.

    There's more to their definition, but it's more related to proper usage of the fork.

    Where's Rock Shox in all of this? Did they miss the boat?
