    I don't even have to watch this to know that the title of the thread is sarcastic! I've watched Claudio try to follow top XC racer Nino Schurter down some trails. Nino was a BEAST on a bike ill-suited for bashing through steep, challenging terrain.

    Course looks like fun. But I'm taking the weight penalty of a dropper on that one.

    Nino did.


    Course looks fun to ride....but looks like a rough course to race. Narrow, tight, twisty....passing could be tough.

    Those short little ups were steep! And then you have to get your head straight enough to descend. o_O :confused:

    Please note that the only time they sound like they are having fun - hooting, laughing - is while descending! :thumbsup:

    Mic drop. I am right. I win!

    did not see a reason to drop the seat, but to each their own.
