The Demo for XC would be painful but the Epic could border on scary depending on the DH run...but I guess you could try and creep over anything but what fun is that? That's why the V10 point and plow is so fun!

I did an XC race this season on my Gran Mal. It was particularly excruciating with my 34t rear cog locked out. I can't begin to imagine DH on something like an Epic.

I use a clipped in, cartwheel/summersault style, so any bike will work for DH!

In all actuality...with the cartwheel style, you become a giant wheel that can roll over anything. Quite efficient.
