Isn't that statement about forward lean the opposite? I always thought the pipe monkey likes forward lean, and some of the park guys. Most freeriders don't seem to use much if any forward lean at all. I've been noticing in many of the pro profiles, that very few guys are running much forward lean these days anyway. I know I run maybe a notch or two of FL but it's almost none. Just enough enough to engage a little quicker on heelside turns.
