Look to the UK.  Ragley, Whyte and Nukeproof all have bikes that are equippped nicely right around that budget.  I wanted a Nukeproof but could not find my size when I bought...
Yes 100% true. Shoulder width, lung capacity and bone density are all advantages that can't be hormoned away. I sure he is a talented rider but this is not a level playing field.

I was in the same situation recently.  The Chameleon was my top choice but I felt it was overpriced and was looking used. My choices were: Ragley Blue Pig Nukeproof Scout Whyte 905 The Commencal   I wanted the...

All last year Felt DD30 rigid fat with 3.8 Jumbo Jims.  That bike made me feel a little outgunned in chunky steep stuff going downhill.  I would still bounce down it at...

I considered an Orange but I was looking at the P7.  I am not sure what the differences are.  Other bikes were the Commencal Meta HT, but it said preorder on the...

So what did you go with and what do you think of your choice?  It seems like I am in the same boat but Scout Comp 275 vs Radley Blue Pig. kwog

I am in the market for a hardtail bike that I can ride aggressively and has the new school geometry.  This bike will be 100% about fun.  When I ride this bike...

Winter is my favorite time to ride.  I was a snow and sand biker on 26x2.25, I enjoyed the challenge in being able ride it.  I used to like to tow my kid...
Ditch the pole and suspend the tent's center on a line between two trees. You don't need limbs, only trees that way and you avoid the "get the rope in the tree" dance.

commented on Gamut Podium Pedals Review
 
I ride flats on a fatbike and the wide stance means my pedals hit the dirt quite a bit. The thin profile and short axle are exactly what I need to minimize the time I spend dragging the pins.
