G-Out Project, Tamarack #USDH National NW Cup

I agree that if your seat buzzes, it’s in the wrong place. I disagree that a seats on DH bike’s are for when you aren’t riding. Take a look at Loic Bruni’s bike check and World Cup edit for example, he says he likes his seat high and you can see how much he uses it in the footage. Sam Hill has also stated in interviews that he prefers his seat higher for cornering and bike control.

Boxxer is listed at 5.76 lbs and Bartlett is 5.7 lbs so it’s 27 grams lighter, which almost an ounce. The Bartlett has a boost 15mm axle whereas the Boxxer is boost 20mm, so if you go with the Boxxer, you also need a different wheel.
