    on DH bikes it is, common for them to use road cassettes and derailleurs

    But remember most of the Pros DH rigs are coming down below 35lb. My last trail bike, a Foes FXR was 33!
    Its getting out of hand. We need a shift back to heavy rigs!

    Good, but some of the footage is sped up, espacially the section through Hornet at the end.
