    Couple things come to mind, is DH racing thriving enough to support the numerous DH race bikes on the market? Lots of new bike parks but do the type of trails being built favor DH race bikes?

    Building a frame out of carbon to fit 27.5 wheels is probably more realistic than trying to reconfigure the current alu DHR.
