So that makes 5 truely All-Mountain riders. Which means there are roughly 7,989 All-Mountain fakers. 7,943 of which have accounts on MTBR.
Personally, I consider myself a Some Of The Better Parts Of The Mountain Rider as I'm too much of a Betty to be truely AM.
You'll notice in the vid that bashguards and chainguides have gone out of style for pure All-Mountain riding, unless you ride in an all red kit. Take note and strip that crap off your Kona Stinky. You'll notice a big improvement between pedalling a 38lb bike and pedalling a 37lb bike.
Excuse me, pushing a 37lb bike.
