Durable means it wont freakin break on you.
Good read tho, I think most of us grasp this concept just by reading around but it did pass a good 15 minutes for me at work
Id love to have a "All Mountain" type of bike since I want to be able to take 6 foot drops and jumps, I havnt made it to my local trails yet so I have no idea what to expect.
When its split into beginner, intermediate, advanced, and super advanced on most of these places and we have stuff like the T.O.E. I dont think my rockhopper will let me run a place like that without breaking the bike or my tailbone.
But just as that article said those hardcore downhill/all mountain people pay alot, not only for the bike but for maintence, repair, and parts replacment... definitly not a good nitch to get into when your on a low hourly wage and father of 3 kids :/
