    The poll seems to lack a “none of the above” option…
    My local trails in Swinley Forest look like the Pac NW vid for 6 or 8 weeks a year & they’re TERRIFYING – don’t have the faintest idea what’s under the leaves. Could be roots, holes, step-ups, abandoned bikes & dead MTBers for all I know, anything, just waiting to grab my front wheel & throw me headfirst into the trees. Autumn rides round here are *very* slow & careful!
    OTOH, on the rare occasions the trails are bone dry like the Commencal vid the front wheel digs into the sand & grinds to halt while the back spins out on the slightest uphill. No fun at all.
    No, give me classic Brit damp-but-not-slimey & I’m good to go all day. Lovely stuff!

    I don’t think I’ve seen a Commencal edit that wasn’t incredible!
    It all started with a nuts one years ago with a 2CV at the beginning.

    Extra points for making the location public!
